Saving boards

This guide will describe in detail the saving feature of the Agile plugin.

How to save custom board

When you are in Agile board view, click on Apply to apply your changes, and then just click on Save. If you don't want to save changes, please click on Clear, your board will return to the default view.

After that, you will have to choose a name for your new board and set the visibility. It can be private – visible only to you, visible to some people (like Administrators), or to everyone.

You can also set this board to be your new default board or decide whether this board can be used in all projects - it will become a global board then.

If you want to create a board default not only for yourself but for other users too, you have to make it visible to them first.

In this view, you will find all the settings that are visible in the board view, like setting up colors and swim lanes, filters, and board columns.

When you click Save, your new board will appear in the right sidebar.

My agile boards contain your private boards. They will not be visible to other users. The other boards can be found under Agile boards.

In Agile boards, you can also view board by assignee, display all issues or user stories board.

How to edit an existing board

To edit an already existing custom board, go to the Agile tab within your project. Find the board you want to edit within the right sidebar of My agile boards and click Edit on its view page. Don't forget to click Save after you have provided some changes.

Please note you will not see the Save button on the existing board until you provide and apply some changes for this board.


In Administration -> Roles and permissions you can set permissions regarding Agile boards. Just click on a role type, and under Project, you will see Agile permissions. Modify them if you wish.

The saved Agile Charts could be accessed again in the right-side panel.


Saving Backlog

There is also a feature for saving the Backlog (Version Planning Board), i.e. saving the Sprints and Versions boards.


The already saved queries could be found in the right-side panel too.


And if you switch to Versions tab:


Then the section in the right-side panel will automatically change to the Versions:
