Is there a way to show all team member as filters on the jira board directly?

The filter option for the individual team member on the jira board is very useful but only maximum 4 are displayed while the other ones are accessible via clicking "+X". Is there a way to increase the default number of directly displayed team members to a higher value? board.png

Hi @Philipp Keuter , welcome to the Community!

Unfortunately, there's no way to expand this that I know of. However, there are other ways this could be structured that may be helpful.

Option 1: Use dynamic JQL that filters against the current user rather than a specific user. The upside is that only one button will be required instead of one for each team member. The downside is that if you would like to see another member's assigned issues you will have to use a different view.


Option 2: Configure your board's swimlanes to group issues by Assignee. This resolves the problem where you are unable to see another user's assigned issues but it may also not be the best way for your team to utilize swimlanes.
