For some reason, only the admin can set the "Group by" option on the board. This is really annoying for my testing team as they want to see it grouped by epic, but me and my development team want to see it sorted by asignee. Is there any way to make this a personal preference that individual users can set, and not have it as a global setting?
I'm pleased to let you know that the Group By setting is now available to all members of a project.
Anyone that is able to access a Next-gen board can customise this setting, and it will only affect their own view of the board.
We appreciate your patience while we've been working on this!

@Sam Storer making the Group By a user setting rather than board setting isn't something we'll be doing right away as we're currently working on sub-tasks. However its good to get this feedback as it helps us understand when we should come back to this as it's something we keen to do.

In fact this is the only show stopper for me right now. I need to be able either to group based on dropdown fields or to use regular swimlanes from Agile boards. Currently none of these options is available, and it's just frustrating
On Nex-Gen Boards only admins have permissions to change schemes and other settings.
You can find more information about Next-Gen on the documentation below:
- Get started with next-gen boards
- Everything you want to know about next-gen projects in Jira Cloud
Currently, there are no feature requests suggesting the implementation of this ability.
I'm sorry that we can't be more helpful on it.
Please, let us know if there is something else we can help.
