Has anyone found a good work-around for if you want to use a Next-Gen project, but have multiple boards associated with it?
I love the roadmap feature of next-gen but need to have boards/backlogs for different scrum teams.
Alternatively, can anyone recommend an add-on to Class Scrum/Kanban projects that is like the "Roadmap" feature of next-gens?
Hi @Jenna Goodward - There is currently no way to have multiple boards associated with a next-gen project. This probably isn't very helpful, but the moment if you want to stick to next-gen you'll have to create a different project for each scrum team.
I don't know much about third-party add-ons, but I do know that for classic Scrum/Kanban projects we have Portfolio for Jira which will give you a Roadmap-like feature, though it is more complex.
Hope that helps!
Hi @Jenna Goodward - I can confirm that Roadmaps is a next-gen only feature, and won't be coming to classic projects.
I can also confirm that the ability to have multiple boards for a next-gen project will happen some time in the future, but can't confirm any timeframes.
1000% please give us the ability to have multiple boards. We went with the a classic setup for our project because we fundamentally need at least two boards (one for development, the other for discovery, as we do dual-track agile), and it's an impossibility to do product development off of one board for us.
This is a HUGE gap in the Next-Gen Jira. I've been "selling" my internal teams on separate Projects as being viable, but the truth is it's not a good solution at all. Multiple Boards is the best way. If this ever comes out I wont even care about my time to migrate my stuff.....I just just need it supported.
Really would love an update on this feature. We're at a stage where being able to integrate Kanban projects with several statuses for enforcing WIP limits on various teams working alongside our Software development teams in SCRUM boards feeding status and volume of completed tasks back to the roadmap would be incredibly valuable.
@Kevin_Bui do you have any updates for us?
One workaround for multiple boards is create "Quick Filters".
I mean - You can create one board under the project. Then go to the Board Settings (Configure) and Add quick filters each having an underlying JQL.
I created around 3-4 custom quick filters and it works fine. Not sure if there is a threshold to the number of Quick filters you can create on a board.
paru_madhavan - Yes, i have started to like classic JIRA offlate! (more than next-gen) And the quick filters i created is on the classic JIRA project. Will check if there is a way to create those on next-gen project. Haven't tried it in the past. Will post my comments soon. thanks.
Hi folks, it's been more than 1 year since the original request... do you already have an ETA for multiple boards on next-gen projects?
We'd like to be able to have Upstream (Backlog Refinement, UX, Tech Refining) and Downstream (Dev, QA Work) boards.
BTW, should this question be marked as "Solved"? The solution isn't available yet, besides the workaround of switching to classic projects.
