Showing Issue Details

To view more details about a specific Jira issue or Epics, click on the twisty icon (>) to expand it.

Click on the Issue details icon to display the detailed dialog of the Jira issue.

The issue details shows the following information on:

  • who the Jira issue is assigned to
  • which Jira issues the current ticket is waiting on
  • which Jira issues is causing the current ticket to stall
  • what is the current status of the Jira issue


Sprints view

On the right section of the Issue list is the sprints view which displays the timeline of the sprint. This gives team managers the full picture of the progress of the Jira issues and what’s the next step to do. They will also be able to see which Jira issues that needed attention and identify which team members are overloaded with tasks or which work is at risk for an upcoming due date.

The red line indicates today’s date. If you drag the timeline scrubber, it changes the Activity date range filter. Hence, it will only show issues that have activity in that time frame. For example, dragging the slider to left lets you take a peek on what was worked on in the past few days or yesterday.

Hover the mouse pointer over the activity bar and it will show details about status changes, and statistics on development changes – for that day. This will display what type of work the team performed on that day.

Click on the Go to issue shortcut to take you directly to that Jira issue.

Scroll the timeline horizontally by using the scrollbar at the bottom. The timeline shows a list of issues based on your selected Issue and Activity filters.

Click on an Issue row to expand child issues and view additional information by moving the mouse pointer over the revealed icons.

Finally, on the bottom part of the page, you will see the following shortcut controls:

Control Description
Displayed items Set how many items per page will be displayed in the list view.
Page navigation Shows the page controls to switch across several pages of information views.
Today Clicking this button will automatically adjust the slider to today’s date.
Clicking this button will show quick helpful tips on how to navigate and use the General, Epics, or Teams view.


Epics view mode

Tick the Show epics checkbox on the Issue column header to display the list view in Epics mode.

The Epics view contains information that helps to organize the rows by epics. This allows team/product managers to easily expand and view the issues within each epic. While it functions closely similar to the General View, it also provides an additional level of organization based on epics.


Search Functions and Filters

On the search panel, team/project managers can set the criteria and apply some filters to the search.
