Are you on the right help page?
The following information only applies to classic projects.
To check which project you need help with, look at the bottom of your project’s left-hand sidebar:
If you see an icon stating You’re in a next-gen project with Give feedback and Learn more menu items, you're in a next-gen project. Check out our next-gen project documentation.
If you don’t, you're in a classic project.
Quick Filters let you further filter the collection of issues appearing on a Scrum or Kanban board. Use Quick Filters to switch between different issue types (e.g. show only bugs), or to show team-specific views of a common backlog.
Before you begin
To configure the board and any of its settings, you must be either:
a project administrator for the location of the board
a board administrator for the board itself
See Permissions overview for more information to configure its Quick Filters.
About the default Quick Filters
By default, a board contains two Quick Filters, called 'Only My Issues' and 'Recently Updated':
Default Quick Filter
Only My Issues
Displays issues assigned to the person who is currently viewing this board.
Displays issues that have been updated in the last 24 hours.
Editing Quick Filters
You can create additional Quick Filters or edit existing Quick Filters. Any additional Quick Filters that you create will appear as buttons next to the 'Only My Issues' and 'Recently Updated' buttons on the board.
Go to your board, then select more () > Board settings.
Click the Quick Filters tab.
Edit the Quick Filters, as described in the following table and screenshot (below).
Add a new Quick Filter
In the blue area, type the Name, JQL, and a Description (optional), then click the Add button. Your new Quick Filter will be added in the top Quick Filter position.
Change the name of a Quick Filter
Click in the Name area of the Quick Filter, modify the existing name, and click the Update button.
Change the JQL of a Quick Filter
Click in the JQL area of the Quick Filter, modify the existing JQL, and click the Update button.
See the examples below for some suggestions. For information on JQL syntax, see JQL.
Delete a Quick Filter
Click the Delete button at the right of the Quick Filter.
Move a Quick Filter
Hover over the vertical 'grid' icon, then drag and drop the Quick Filter up or down to its new position.
When this board is used, the top-most Quick Filter appears in the left-most position.
