How to set the number of columns in the board?

Shaun Han May 18, 2020


I set up a Kanban board for my new project, and by default, it has 3 columns "TO DO", "In progress" and "Done".

But looks like the board expects 5 columns, so currently, it only used 3/5 of the whole screen, which is ugly.

How to configure the board to use the whole screen for just 3 columns? Thanks

Hello Shaun,

Thank you for reaching out to Atlassian Community!

On next-gen projects, currently, it's not possible to change the width of the columns. 

On classic projects, the columns fitted according to the number of columns, but on next-gen it's different.

There is a feature request suggesting the implementation of such ability:
