      The 'Issues in Progress' Gadget doesn't allow you to do this 'out of the box'. It's only designed to show issues assigned to you (i.e. the current user).

      However, the JQL used by this gadget is:

      Hence, to achieve what you want, try the following:

      1. Create a new JQL query but change the assignee = currentUser() clause of this query (above) so that it uses the 'NOT EQUALS' operator, as follows:

      2. Save the query as a filter (see Saving Searches ('Issue Filters') for details), giving it a sensible name like 'Other Users' Issues in Progress'.

      3. Add the Filter Results Gadget to your dashboard and choose the filter you saved in the previous step.

      Hope that achieves what you're looking for.

      (tick) You can use the Filter Results Gadget to show a list of issues based on any search criteria, by saving your search as a filter.

    Seems this should be called the "My In Progress Issues" Gaget or something. The name is misleading.

    I would like to have an Issues in Progress filter by team. I have added all the team members to a Group. Is is possible to say where assignee=Group 'Team XYZ'?

    Never mind, I can do this in the Basic Filtering. Awesome!

    Is it possible to sort all "in progress" tasks by the time they are in this status, so I can see which task is running for the longest time?

    This doesn't seem to include in-progress issues where I am a co-assignee and not the primary assignee. Or is there a away to do this?
