Scheduling and Assigning Issues in GreenHopper


To schedule or assign an issue in GreenHopper,

  1. Log into JIRA.
  2. Click the 'Agile' menu in the top navigation bar and select 'Planning Board' from the dropdown that displays. The 'Planning Board' will display.
  3. Select your project from the project dropdown in the top navigation bar, if it is not already selected.
  4. Change the planning board mode categorise your issues by versions, components or assignees.
  5. Drag and drop the desired card(s)/row(s) to the version/component/assignee box that you want to associate the issue(s) with.
    • If your issue(s) have sub-tasks, GreenHopper will also prompt you as to whether you want to schedule/assign each of the sub-tasks along with the parent issue. Select the sub-tasks to schedule/assign and click the 'Update' button.
  6. GreenHopper will schedule/assign the issues immediately, as well as update the statistics on the boxes on your Planning Board.

(tick) Tip: You can also move sub-tasks from one issue to another by dragging and dropping the sub-tasks' cards to the desired issue.

Dragging and Dropping Cards/Rows


You can drag and drop one or multiple issues in GreenHopper with your mouse. To select a single card, just click the desired card. To select multiple issues, you can do either of the following:

  • Selecting multiple ungrouped cards/rows (i.e. cards/rows adjacent to each other) — Hold down 'CTRL' on your keyboard and click to select the desired cards/rows.
  • Selecting multiple grouped cards/rows (i.e. cards/rows adjacent to each other) — Click a card/row, hold down 'SHIFT' on your keyboard and click another card/row above or below the first one. The first card/row, the second card/row and all cards/rows in between will be selected.
    (tick) Tip: If you hold down 'SHIFT' on your keyboard and click an issue, without clicking a card/row first, then all issues from the top of the Planning Board down to the clicked issue will be selected.

Once you have selected your card(s)/row(s), simply drag them to the desired destination (e.g. a version box).
