Vertical Space Use in the Next-Gen Board

Why is so much vertical space unnecessarily wasted in the next-gen board?

Every bit of vertical space is important so I can see more of the board at once: KPI should be maximum number of issues visible vertically in the screen.


  • Plenty of white space is available in the top
  • Components can be moved one row upwards to save some vertical space
  • Also consider whether showing issue codes helps users; the issue type icon can be displayed on the same row as the issue name, with the issue code shown on mouseover

+1 to what @Angélica Luz mentioned. This is something on our radar to improve - and we're currently juggling a few other things before we can get to it

Me too. Density of information is often far more important than being visually pleasing.

Hello Matan,

Thank you for reaching out to Atlassian Community!

We appreciate your feedback.

The amount of space on next-gen boards is by design and there is not much difference from a Classic board.

Next-gen board:

Classic board:

If those fields that you pointed was added along with the board name, it wouldn't allow a longer name or it would be less space to show the remaining days of a sprint, for example.

I understand that you are not using a board name with many words or a sprint, but as this is a cloud site, it's not possible to edit the CSS and HTML of the page to change the location of the fields.

With that said, I'd suggest you to raise a feature request on (project JSWCLOUD) adding more details about why removing those spaces is important for your environment.
