Multiple quick filter groups

Mick van Breukelen October 19, 2020

Currently, when opening a work board, there is 1 "quick filter' dropdown.

I'd like to have multiple.

So, for example, I can have 1 per user group (developers prefer other filters than product owner or stake holders).
Or, we can have 1 per filter subject (1 for statuses, 1 for my custom label, 1 for priorties, etc.)

Any way this is possible? Or should I make a feature request?

Thanks!

Hello Mick,

You can indeed create your own filters that will appear on your work board,

In order to do so, you have to access the Board Settings, then going to the Quick Filters tab (the board setting requires a project administrator access).

In the quick filters, you can parameter the filter you need using the JQL, like for instance issueType = "Your issue type"or priority IN (Highest, High)

You'll find more information about JQL using the following link : JQL Atlassian 

Let me know if it helped or not,

Guilhem

This is the right answer.  You can create any number of quick filters for boards. They are additive, so you can either create them with that in mind  -- so you can 'build' customized board results by adding filters together OR you can create ones that do several things at once.

For example:

Quick Filter 1.  Bob and Joe's issues:
JQL could be assignee in (bob, joe)  ( due to PII rules, it will allow you to ect a name but it will appear a userID when you finalize the filter)

Quick Filter 2.  P1 and P2 Issues:
JQL could be  priority in (P1, P2)

To find all the P1 or P2 issues assigned to Bob and Joe, select both filters.  

If you wanted to make a single filter for P1 and P2 issues for Bob and Joe, you could also:

assignee in (bob, joe) AND priority in (P1, P2)

You would get the same results, but only need to create 1 filter.

This is, unfortunately, not what I mean.

I have a lot of quick filters, and I'd like to group them.

 

So instead of 1 "quick filters" text, I'd like multiple (which I can expand seperately)

It's probably not possible...

I see, I misunderstood. I don't know of any way to group them in the manner you mean. 

Sorry

It would be ideal to choose multiple quick filters (QF).  Otherwise, when one chooses more than one QF, the logic does not work.  One has to deselect all but one desired QF - one at a time.  

Not a show-stopper given that QFs a very helpful regardless.

Quick filters are stored per board, have you considered having multiple separate boards? One for developers, other for stakeholders etc. You can have multiple boards in a single project, all can have the same filter query so that all display the same results, but quick filters will differ.

I see the point of having the option to group the quick filters into multiple groups though - but I believe that the feature is not there.
