Why we can not use multiple filters in Plans-Timeline view?

Liora Naginsky May 2, 2024

We are trying to add multiple filters in the Timeline view.

For example:

filter#1 - issue details = "x"

filter#2 - status = "done"

When I try to add the second filter there is no match.

Please advise.

Hi @Liora Naginsky 

Welcome to the community!

In Jira's Plans-Timeline view, it is currently not possible to use multiple filters simultaneously. The Plans-Timeline view is designed to provide a high-level overview of a project's timeline, allowing you to visualize and manage issues based on a single filter or query.

The primary reason for this limitation is to maintain simplicity and clarity in the Plans-Timeline view. By focusing on a single filter, it becomes easier to understand and analyze the timeline without the complexity of multiple filters and their potential intersections.

However, you can still achieve similar results by creating a single filter that incorporates the criteria from multiple filters. By combining the necessary criteria in a single filter, you can then use that filter in the Plans-Timeline view to display the desired set of issues.

Here's an example:

1. Go to the Issue Navigator in Jira.
2. Create a new filter and add the criteria from the multiple filters you want to combine. For instance, if you have two filters:

Filter 1: project = "Project A" AND status = "In Progress"
Filter 2: project = "Project B" AND status = "To Do"

You can combine them into a single filter like this:

project in ("Project A", "Project B") AND status in ("In Progress", "To Do")

3. Save the new filter and give it a meaningful name.
4. Now, go to the Plans-Timeline view and select the newly created filter. This will display the issues that meet the combined criteria.

By using a single filter that includes the criteria from multiple filters, you can effectively achieve the desired result in the Plans-Timeline view.

@Sushant Verma Thank you for your answer.

I have another question: is it possible to see the plan based on the filter (and not the board) and still see the sprints on the timeline?

Thank you!
