Boards in the new Jira experience
On top of the navigation and search changes, we're introducing several improvements for boards, to make them easier to locate and streamline your Jira experience.
We redesigned the relationship between boards and projects. Now, boards belong to projects, so you can better manage multiple work streams in Jira Software.
Locations for boards
To simplify this change, we have automatically moved your boards into their most relevant project.
If you own boards independent of projects, we have moved them into your user profile. To find these boards, select your avatar and choose Profile.
To change a board's location:
- From the board, select (More).
- Choose Board settings.
- Under General, select the Location field.
You'll also need to select a location for any new board you create.
Projects and boards play as a team
Previously, there were global boards that contained work from multiple projects.
Since boards now have their own location, the sidebar displays options relating to the project that contains the board. Even if your board contains issues from several projects, the sidebar remains project-centric, giving you quick navigation to the work related to your project and board.
