Horizontal Scrolling

Structure automatically adjusts column sizes to fit every selected column into the panel. While you can easily change the size of each column, by default you are still bound by the size of your Structure panel. This can make it difficult to view several columns at once or columns with a great deal of information (such as the Summary column or text columns), particularly when you're working with a Double Grid layout or viewing Structure on a small screen.

To make it easier to work with multiple columns and/or larger columns, you can turn on horizontal scrolling. This will allow you to work with as many columns as you need and set their sizes as large as necessary for easy viewing.

To enable horizontal scrolling:

  • Click the gear icon in the top right corner of the Structure grid.
  • Click the Horizontal scrolling toggle.

Horizontal Scrolling

Once you turn horizontal scrolling on, your view may no longer fit within the viewing panel. In this case, a horizontal scrollbar will appear at the bottom of the panel. Sliding this from left to right will allow you to bring different columns into view.

Pinned Columns

Not all columns move when you scroll. The Summary column remains visible at all times, so you can keep track of essential information as you focus in on other columns.

Additionally, the Jira Actions column is always available, though it may not be visible.

Pinning Additional Columns

To pin additional columns:

  • Open the column's configuration menu and click the Pin icon. The column will be added to the pinned section in the farthest-right position.
  • Drag the column to the left of any pinned column. The column will be added to the location you drop it.

Pinning columns

Pinned columns will be moved to the left side of the screen and will remain visible as you scroll.

Unpinning Columns

To unpin a column:

  • Open its configuration menu again and unclick the Pin icon. The column will be moved back to it's pre-pinned position.
  • Drag it to the right of an unpinned column. The column will be placed wherever you drop it.

Additionally, when Horizontal scrolling mode is turned off, all pinned columns will be moved back to their original positions, when possible.

The Summary column cannot be unpinned.

Saving Horizontal Scrolling Settings

Structure allows you to save your horizontal scrolling settings for a particular view.

For example, by default, the Basic View only shows a few essential columns. Keeping horizontal scrolling disabled for this view makes sure all of your essential information is visible at a glance. On the other hand, the Planning view often has several columns and might be easier to scroll through than trying to view all together.

To set your horizontal scrolling preference for a saved view:

  • In the Views Menu, select Manage Views
  • Locate the view you want to set and click Details
  • Under the Properties tab, check or uncheck Horizontal scrolling

Making horizontal scrolling the default for a view

Horizontal Scrolling is enabled by default for the Planning and Tracking views. If you prefer not to use Horizontal Scrolling for these views, you can disable it using the methods above.
