Line numbers in the backlog view Edited

In our teams we often use shared screen when working online.

When we talk about issues in the backlog view it is often a bit hard for people to identify the issues currently discussed when looking at the backlog together. Using the IDs obviously does not make it easier as they are sorted by rank and not ID.

Is there a way to solve this eg. in line numbers in the backlog so you can refer to the issue in eg. line 36. I have not found any native functionality enabling this? Or perhaps there is an app enabling this for easier reference?

Question – if you’re sharing a screen doesn’t the mouse pointer convey which topic is your issue you’re looking at? That aside there aren’t line numbers as you are pointing out within the backlog. Other ideas might be to simply use the search button and type in the issue key and everyone can look at themselves. But again if I’m presenting a screen I’m clicking on an issue and everybody’s viewing that issue along with me. Obviously if you’re not actually sharing a screen and just having everybody walk through it it is certainly more challenging. If someone on the meeting other than the one presenting calls out a specific issue I might use command-f/control-f to find that issue if I have a really long backlog.
