Create and Configure an Issue Board

Create an issue board

  1. Open your project.

  2. On the Projects sidebar, click Issue Boards.

    • If your project has no boards, click Build an issue board.

    • If your project already has a board and you want to add another one, click the existing board name on the navigation bar and choose Add board:

  3. Enter the board's name and click Create:


    That's it. A new board is created with the default configuration where columns are mapped to the existing issue statuses.

Edit an issue board

To edit a board's name, description, and configure columns:

  1. Open the board you want to edit.

  2. On the top right, click ... and choose Board settings.

  3. Edit the settings and click Submit when done.

Configure issue board columns

By default, the number of columns matches the number of issue statuses defined in the issue settings and each column is mapped to and named after a particular status:


You can change the mapping in many ways:

  • Give a column a custom name.

  • Change the order of columns (left to right) by dragging them (top to bottom).

  • Add or remove columns.

  • Combine different statuses into one column.

Here is an example where we renamed the columns and deleted the one we don't need:


In this other example we had a custom issue status configuration to start with and desided to map two different statuses to one of the columns:
