in Jira Cloud, the default dashboard does not show after selecting the project

I tried a few options already, like appointing two dashboards to the project, but not even the default dashboard shows.

The 'Board' shows in all scenario's I tested.

I use Chrome to access Jira Cloud.

Thanks for any tips. Edgar

But isn’t that image showing the default board? At least that is what I call it. What do you mean by default board? 

You may already be aware but let me state the following just in case it is helpful...

  1. you are in a business project as such the default board (shown) is what comes with that project type
  2. you can create a Kanban board for the project but you must set the Location as your profile. Then you can use the “add item” to add a link to the sidebar. 

Hi Jack, I might be lost somehow then. 

My experience and the Jira Documentation, refer to a 'dashboard' as something that can be set to personal, be shared with others, etc. Apparently, a 'board' is something else.

I would like to see the personal or the default 'dashboard' shows up as first screen after having selected the project, or - if the user is only involved in one project - directly upon login.

Is there a way to do that? Thanks, Edgar

First some terminology: Dashboards are independent views that leverage various gadgets to provide overview of various projects, issues, etc. while Board’s (Kanban, Scrum)

In business projects you only get the Default (non-configurable) board. This is what you are seeing in your current project view. As I mention above you can create a Kanban board, assign to your profile then add a link on you project’s sidebar. You cannot replace the default with your custom/full featured Kanban unfortunately.

Here you go, Jack. This is shown after a new login, as a simple user.
