Layout in every JIRA Page (I'm new on this)

Is it just me, or there's a lot of page layout to be done on JIRA CLOUD? 



I find uncomfortable all space that can be enhanced with a more Compact view on all items.
Specially, on top of pages, there's plenty of space to add more information for project management. 


Is there improvements on this coming soon? 

Thanks to share your opinions.

Hi @Mauricio Ferreyra ,

i’m on sure if I follow your concern or question. Are you saying that there is a lot of white space in the board view that could be and should be otherwise  populated with pertinent information? Keep in mind that some of the white space will be impacted by the size of your screen. If you shrink down your browser window what do you see? Also some of that area will get filled in depending on how you can figure your board. For example if you had a lot of quick filters see what happens to some of the white space. If you mean something else please elaborate and I will see if I can provide some input if not an acceptable answer. Finally for sure you’re a cloud is changing rapidly it’s sort of like the weather.😉

i guess it is just a subjective thing. Personally I don't want so much information on one single screen. I don't want every bit of space occupied. I believe the absence of information draws your attention to what's important. For me white space is important. Looking at one of my test projects this is what I see answer me it's clean and legible. Regardless it never hurts to share your feedback with it last year and using the feedback link.

Thanks Jack for your feedback.

When I shrink my web browser everything still keeps its ratio...
Actually, I'm not talking about Boards, I'm talking about Backlog layout (see attached image).

That Layout annoys me, since has too much space wasted (at a kind of header div), It barely uses almost 50% of the page with important information.

I'll keep praying that JIRA Cloud version will become more compact-style soon, I hope.

There are some Suggestions open on user experience, design and layout.

This here is just one random-picked example where one could say that the user's screen is not fully used.

Apart from that regarding New Issue View there are also Suggestions open dealing with how the space on the screen could used best.

I think, it is worth having a look into those Suggestions every now and then. Especially in Cloud offererings there are a lot of changes (documented here: and as far as I have noticed user interface improvements are indeed something that happen from time to time.
