How to add new swimlane in the next-gen project?

Hi,

I can see there are different columns in the next-gen project for swimlanes. I want to add new swimlane in the project but don't want an extra column for it on the board. Can someone tell me how to add extra swimlane but not a column on the board?

It would be great to see this feature added to Next Gen.

Atlassian has ruined what otherwise would be a great new version by taking away a really valuable level of functionality. When we have cross team initiatives, I wanted swimlanes to represent which team is currently responsible. Avoiding WIP and making this more self serve and obvious, where in the flow it is would be useful

I agree, swimlanes are just great to manage a lot of tasks. Please add it.

I cannot believe how much fundamental functionality is missing from the Next Gen. Swimlanes were a staple in the old JIRA.

Hello,

You can not add swimlanes in next-gen projects.

Hello,

You have access to only 2 pre-configured swimlanes (upper right of the board):

  • By epic
  • By  Assignee

 

However you can still create a board with a filter on your Next gen project.

The workaround would be to create an empty project to hold this board.

Not having swimlanes is a full stop for us using Jira Next-Gen.

Agree.  Having swimlanes is one reason I advocated for Jira vs. a Trello board.  Would love to see this functionality added back in for Next Gen.
