Add, rename, or delete a column from your board

This is only available for team-managed projects

Only project admins can add, edit, or delete columns for business projects that have the same workflow for all of their issue types, except for subtasks. Learn more about how to edit or create workflows.

Easily add, edit, or delete columns to your team-managed project’s board view. Make updates to your project’s workflow within context of the board view without needing to navigate to the project settings to update your team’s workflow. The columns on the board view are controlled by your project’s workflow, so updates made to your board’s columns will be reflected in your workflow. Learn more about workflows.

You can only add, edit, or delete columns in the board view for a project with one single workflow.
