Is it possible to have multiple squads working off of one next gen Jira Project?

Andrew Dunne October 21, 2020

Hi all,

I am currently in the process of investigating the best way to configure Jira for our Product and Engineering teams going forward. We have opted to configure a next gen project for our discovery work and a separate project for delivery work.

We will soon be establishing squads who will work on objectives set by product on a quarterly basis. These squads will be reassembled each quarter.

All of the work carried out will be for our core product, as such we have opted to have one Project for delivery work.

Ideally we would like to structure the project so that multiple squads have a shared backlog but their own view of the board to see work that only pertains to them. Is that possible using next-gen projects?

Hi @Andrew Dunne ! Up to now, we have been focusing on making next-gen a great experience for the single team use case. Although great news is we are soon going to be switching our focus to the multi-team use case like the one you have described. 
It is possible in the short to add team name as a label to each issue - and then filter the board by labels. Each team member could save the URL of the filtered board as a browser bookmark to save them filtering every time. Obviously this is just a workaround and we will have a better to do this in the future but it might just get you going. Let me know if you come up with other ideas.
