Organize your list

Unless otherwise noted, the list in software projects is the same for both company-managed and team-managed projects.

  • Anyone with access to the project can group issues in the list

  • Your grouping and sorting will only be visible to you

  • Your grouping will persist when returning to list view from other views and projects

You can group the issues in your list by certain attributes. Organize and visualize your work how you want to. For example, you can check high-priority tasks to see that nothing is blocked or see individual team members' workloads at a glance.

All users are in control of how they want to view their work – so any group you create can only be seen by you. You can group your work by:

  • Assignee

  • Status

  • Priority

  • Sprint

  • Story point estimate

When you sort, child issues will stay with their parent issues. The type icons will be nested below each other, so you can clearly see how the issues relate to each other.

For example, if you sort the list by assignee you’ll see each issue listed under the person it’s assigned to. Any child issues will be nested below their parent issue, even if they’re assigned to a different person.

This allows you easily keep track of the hierarchy and relationship between pieces of work, no matter how you organize your list view.

Drag and drop issues

Once you group your issues, you can drag and drop an issue from one group to another.

To drag and drop issues:

  1. Hover over the Type column for the issue you want to drag to see the icon.

  2. Hold and drag the issue to the assignee, status, priority, sprint or story point estimate you want to move it to.

  3. Drop the issue.

The issue should now be assigned the attributes of the group it has been moved to.

You cannot drag and drop issues when grouped by Status.

Clear the group

To clear the grouping:

  1. Select the Group by drop-down at the top-right of the list.

  2. Select Clear.
