Show "Backlog" instead of "Board" when selecting a project


I think it was like this before, but i can't find any setting for this:

If i select a Project in the projects-browser, it jumps to "Board" tab. I prefer to view the "Backlog" instead, though.

How can i change the default view when selecting a Project?

Hello @Dominik Kohler

At this time I can find no method to alter the project default view to the project's backlog. Is there a specific reason you need this default view?

You can give Atlassian feedback regarding navigation by going to your profile icon, selecting Give Feedback, and writing up your requirement. 

Hope this helps,
