Move and transition issues through a workflow

Workflows

To transition your issue through a workflow in the board, drag the issue you’d like to transition to a different column.

You can only drag your issue to a status that’s in order of your business project’s workflow. For example, you’re unable to drag a card from To do → Done. It needs to be dragged in the order of your workflow’s transition.

Alternatively, you can:

  1. Open the issue dialog of the issue you’d like to transition.

  2. Select the dropdown to change the status at the top right corner.

Change the order of your issues

Drag and drop an issue within a column to rank it higher in the column, or lower on the board. You can move items around within a column, which lets you order tasks any way you like, such as by priority, complexity, or due date.
