Install instructions (Jira Users)

Go to your usual Kanban board and press the button “Kanban Combined WIP PRO” → “Install in browser” or “install in browser for NextGen”

(that depends on the version of your Jira Cloud, NextGen means your Jira Cloud Kanban boards have the standard horizontal scrolling columns new feature). Read more

 

A plugin will be installed in your favorite browser: Firefox, Google Chrome and Micorsoft Edge are supported.

 

Configuration (Jira Users)

Go to your usual Kanban board and select “…” → “Board Settings”, go to the “Columns” section

 

 

Combine columns and WIPs

We can combine columns or we can group some columns using the split text “::” in the name of the columns

As example, we can group the “Selected for Development” column with “In Progress” column using the prefix “DEV::” in the name of both columns.

We can combine also the Min and Max WIP limits of both columns

The result will be something like this:

Combined WIP/Column WIP

Now is possible to see the board with WIP combined in the merged columns, or just the WIP independent by column. Just use the “check” of the toolbar “C.WIP

MERGED COLUMNS WIP

 

WIP BY COLUMN

 

Full-color Cards

Go again to “…” → “Board Settings” and now we go to the section “Card Colors”. Just configure it as usual.

Now, let’s see the board again and just click in “Color” check in the Kanban toolbar

 

Scroll and Zoom

Using scroll and zoom checks you can see the board well on small laptop screens!

Image (background picture)

Click in “Image” check to change and activate the background picture in the board, just select one from the pop-up

 

or click in the link option to add a custom URL image from the internet!

 

 

Add WIPs to swimlanes

Go again to “…” → “Board Settings” and now we go to the section “Swimlanes”. Just configure it as usual.

Then press “Configure Swimlane WIP limits” button

Add the limits for each swimlane and see the results!

 

 

Expand/Collapse columns new mode (Only in NextGen plugin version)

Now we can EXPAND/COLLAPSE in the toolbar in order to remove non-used columns!

Click in “x” button to remove non-used columns (don’t worry, because if you click again in COLLAPSE/EXPAND the columns will appear again!)

 

 

 

That’s all! Ready for production!

Now is time to Kanban!
