Use JIRA Agile and Kanban as to-do list for several projects

JIRA Agile is not only perfect for teams, the popular JIRA plug-in also makes a great personal to-do list. In this blog post, we’ll show you how to get started with it in less than 3 minutes!

We’ll start by creating a Kanban board in Jira Agile. (formerly GreenHopper). Boards are a fantastic way to get an overview of current issues and edit them directly in Jira Agile. Such a board can contain issues from one or more projects.

Create new board

1. Log in to JIRA.
2. Select “Create > Boards” from the top menu.
3. Select “Create board” at the top right-hand corner.
4. Select “Create a Kanban board” at the right to create your new board.
5. Choose the option “Board from an existing project”.
Now you will be asked for a name for your new Kanban board and can select all projects you want to display in it.

A Kanban board will then be created containing all issues of the projects you have selected that do not belong to a published version (for further information, see Managing Versions).

You may want to adjust the default display filter of your Kanban board. You can also add a filter that only displays the issues of the user currently logged in (usually, that is you) and/or of your user. The projects displayed in your Kanban board can be limited with this filter, too.
