Possibility to visualize issues from two workflows in one board?

We have two workflows. Workflow A is for issuetypes Epic, Story and Bug that requires everyone in the chain to handle the issue. Workflow A goes through the following statuses

In progress_Ux
In progress_Code
In progress_Test

and each sub team has a board that only visualizes the columns they work with (Product owner has two boards for overview we use for standup)

Then we have workflow B for issuetypes Task and Sub-task which only requires action of a sub team (Ux, Code or Test) so we don't want to clutter workflow A with these issuetypes. Workflow B goes through the following statuses

In progress
Test (skipable if no test is needed)

The downside atm is that you have to toggle between the two boards. Is there a way to visualize two workflows in a board so that for instance UX members can see something like

Open (Workflow A + B)
Prepare (Workflow A)
In progress_Ux (Workflow A)
In progress (Workflow B)
Test (Workflow B)
Done (Workflow B)
Done_Ux (Workflow A)

Yes, that is possible. What you see on the board is controlled by the filter you specify for it. If you create a board based on an existing project it will include all statuses from all workflows used in that project.

Once the board is set up, make sure that you go to Board SettingsColumns and check that every status is in a column (the correct column)

Thank you guys for the input!

I've tried it with some Quick filters to only display Task/Sub-tasks assigned to each member so I think it should be nice and clean so no one gets confused.
