We have a Scrum board configured to make swim lanes for each story. Can we get JIRA to mark the status of each story on the board? We are trying to solve two problems. One, there is an assumption that, if all tasks are completed, the story is done. We'd rather not make that assumption, perhaps there was unexpected work that has not yet been documented. Two, when looking at the board, we'd rather not have to expand each story to see then guess at it's status. We'd rather see all stories collapsed then only open the ones which are in progress. So, can we get JIRA to show story status on the board?
The columns should be aligned with statuses. But you can also add it to the card as outlined at: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/AGILE/Customising+Cards#CustomisingCards-fieldsAddingfieldstocards
Please take a look at the scrum board in the capture. Is story #4 done?
What about story #2, I would like to know it's status without opening it up. In this view there is only one collapsed story. It's not unusual to have many. I don't want to have to open each one to see it's status.
Story #1 is a good example of why I want to leave stories collapsed. It hasn't been started. That is all I need to know. Those To Do tasks are taking up a lot of space.
I would like the status of each STORY to be displayed in this view. Can that be done?Capture.jpg
Story 4 is in the To Do column, so it is not done. Story 2 and 1 are also in the To Do column, and therefore are not done. I think the problem is the concept of swim lanes for stories is a very odd choice of configuration. Swimlanes tend to be segmented based on any number of things like themes, assignees, epics, and so on. Stories should be getting moved across the board just like subtasks.
