Assign multiple Statuses to a column

Hi Guys,

What are the chances of getting the functionality of adding multiple statuses to a column?

At the moment all I can see are statuses copying the columns we've created, however being able to add several statuses within a column would further "declutter" our board and allow for better / logical flow through our workspace.






Hi @Danich,


Do you mean you need multiple statuses to show in the same column of a kanban or scrum board? If so, you can already do this from the "Column" section of a board configuration screen.2018-08-07_15-44-20.png

One thing to keep in mind - normally you can drag an issue from one column to another (if it has a transition in that direction between those statuses), however *you cannot drag an issue from one status to another in the same column*. Meaning that in the example above, if you assume that any status can transition to any other, you can move an issue from "Backlog" to "Blocked" and visa-versa, but *not* from "Blocked" to "Pending Acceptance" or "Waiting".

Hi @Haddon Fisher,

Thanks for your reply - I'm aware of being able to do this in a Kanban / Scrum boards and what the functionality provides - But we are using the new Agility projects.

So being able to have the same function in the agility projects is what I'm asking for, sorry I should have made that clearer.

Hi @Danich,

thanks a lot for the feedback! This is definitely something that is on our list of things to do.

We will keep adding to and improving the Agility boards so keep checking in. However, if this is something that you need right now, maybe the classic kanban and/or scrum template might be a better fit for you.


Brilliant @Julien Femia

Thanks for the update. 

I'll keep checking in as advised.
