The cards in the story map lose a good portion of card data. It would be nice to be able to configure what needs to be displayed on the card much like the JIRA boards do. Just inheriting the card configuration from JIRA would be helpful to know what state each card is in on the board.
Nick, please post me too on this. I'm using story maps but the current layout/format really limits their value.
Meanwhile, here's a possible workaround that might be easy for you to implement. What do you think?
1. Make epics expand so they can display more than two lines of text without scrolling -- just the same way as stories do.
2. Give us a way to embed a blank line in the name (ie the "Summary" field for stories or the "Epic Name" for Epics). That way I could write a multi-line name. For example:
Action: Set up new customer account
Who: Bank manager

Hi Mike, just stepping in for Nick here.
This sounds like an interesting idea, I would love to hear more about your use case around it. Could you please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss this further?
We will also be sure to notify you via email when this feature becomes available.
Thanks Mike, I'm looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Hi Mike, Tom,
I'm following up here as I got an interesting suggestion from a customer this week - showing the sprint field when on the version swimlane mode, and showing the version field when on the sprint swimlane mode.
Would that provide any benefit?
A bit more context around why this is difficult, Jira does not provide an API to retrieve the card configuration of the agile board. That functionality is tracked on:
I encourage you to vote and comment on both of those issues to show Atlassian your desire for them.
Nick/Seamus, how is this progressing? as ideally we'd like to see the Story Points and Client on the Card Summary on the Map; as this would allow easier prioritising of work direct from the map rather than having to go into each item one by one.
We have started putting the client on the description, which is OK, but its just a work around and doesn't work for multiple clients.
Hi @Paul Miller,
Story Points are shown on the card today - caveat, you need to be on a Scrum board to set an Estimation statistic as Jira Software doesn't yet support estimation on Kanban boards (JSWSERVER-7265 and JSWCLOUD-6175).
Thanks Paul, have a great weekend.
Hi @Ed Campbell,
No update to report as there has been no changes in the Atlassian Jira APIs. Having said that we did introduce the Quick Issue View to Easy Agile apps this year, and that allows you to get access to and edit more fields at a click.
What field types are you looking at adding to the card?
Nick, thanks so much for the reply. Custom fields would be awesome, but I understand it's a pipe dream with no API changes. Out of curiosity is there a way to disable the themes if they are not needed? Seems like the app forces a minimum of one; you can delete addition if added but I'd love to hide the "issues without themes" line and the "my theme" line, if we don't want themes activated.
