Is it possible, in the backlog view of a board, to add new fields on the right-hand side of an issue


I've been looking for this for a while but I haven't found any conclusive reply yet.

In the screenshot I'm attaching below, I'm trying to make it so that additional custom fields show up on the right of each issue (where you see 7.2.0, Continuation Integration, Tree: label + sorting and story points).


So far, I could only find how to add custom fields under the title of an issue (where "None" is displayed).

I looked into the board configuration settings with the card layout, card colours, but I couldn't figure it out.

Is this even possible or do we have to have those additional custom fields below the issue title?

Hi @Mickael 

You are right once you add upto 3 custom fields it is shown under the title on the left hand side, however you can add custom CSS like this below in the announcement banner of your Jira instance.

<style type="text/css">

.ghx-plan-extra-fields.ghx-plan-extra-fields-3.ghx-row {
float: right;


I hope it helps.


Hi @Ravi Sagar -Adaptavist- 

Thanks for your reply. However, it's not clear to me what adding this custom CSS will do in practice. Can you please explain?

Also, I'd like to once again clarify that what I'd like is to add custom fields on the right-hand side, not on the left-hand side where I've already managed to do it.



Hi @Ravi Sagar -Adaptavist- 

Could you please provide inputs to my clarification request?



Hi @Mickael 

When you add new fields, they are added on the left hand side but with the help of the CSS code I shared above you can visually move them on the right hand side (I guess that's what you wanted). There is no other configurable option to change the layout of the fields.
