What is the Rapid Board?

The Rapid Board is very similar to the Task Board of today, with a few main differences:

  • support for multiple JIRA projects
  • swimlanes
  • control chart for measuring the cycle time
  • interactive charts (zoom and click)
  • permanent links provide 'what you see is what they get' when emailing or IM'ing URLs
  • quick filters are based on JQL so you can create your own

Introduction to the Rapid Board

Highlights of GreenHopper 5.7


Multiple Swimlanes

The Rapid Board now gives you multiple swimlanes based on JQL, for example:



Multiple Quick Filters

The Rapid Board now offers multiple quick filters. A quick filter allows you to visually filter issues through a predefined JQL query, for example:



Global Ranking

In GreenHopper 5.7, all issues now have a globally unique rank. This enables ranking of issues across two or more JIRA Projects on the Rapid Board. You can use this by appending the following to your Saved Filter, as used by your Rapid View:



Other Improvements to the Rapid Board

The following were implemented during the 5.6.x releases:

  • Control Chart — a scatter-plot showing the total number of days that an issue was "In Progress"
  • Cumulative flow diagram that provides zooming to specific date ranges
  • Detailed card view shows comments and provides an inline edit for the Summary and Description fields
  • A card view that shows the Summary, Assignee (as an avatar), Priority and Issue Type
