I'm on a busy project with many moving pieces. Sometimes a task in the product backlog is completed organically before a sprint actually starts.
In my JIRA backlog screen, it would be handy if I could mark a task as "Done" more easily. Instead, I have to click the task, click the "..." context menu, click "More Actions...", click the drop-down menu, and select "Done" from the Workflows option group.
Is there a way to move "Done," or better yet the entire Workflows option group so it is much more accessible?
Yes, you can achieve this - there are some properties which need to be set on the workflow. See the answer by Matheus Fernandes in this thread - it's pretty exhaustive and covers everything you need to know.
Basically, if you want to show all available transitions, you'll need to set just the ops.bar.group.size.opsbar-transitions property in jira-config.properties - this is a global configuration and will affect all projects. You can also reorder so that more important transitions are accessible directly from the page and not from the drop-down menu.
You need to restart JIRA after the setting the opsbar-transitions property - that answer has 33 up-votes, so apparently this works for other people. Also, make sure you look at what you can do with opsbar-squence - you'll be able to change which buttons appear on the screen and which are in the drop-down. This property needs to be set on all transitions to the desired status that should appear on the screen. Read about it here - section "Customize how transitions appear".
