Quick Groups

Quick Groups allow you to reorganize your issues with the click of a button. This allows you to quickly focus on specific business cases and see aggregate results from your data. You can group issues by most Jira fields, including custom fields.

Structure with issues grouped by sprint

Unlike Group Generators, Quick Groups make temporary, local adjustment to the structure, without changing it for everyone else. If someone opens the same structure while you have a filter applied, they will still see the original structure.

Drag and Drop is not available between Quick Groups.

You must have Control access for a structure to create or edit Quick Groups.

Creating a Quick Group

1. Click the Quick Transformations icon.

Quick Transformations button

2. Click the New Group button:

The new group button

3. Configure the Quick Group.

Quick Group configuration screen

  • Name - This is the name that will be displayed on the Quick Transformations panel.
  • Field - Select the field you want to group issues by.
  • Consider other groups - By default, items created by another Group will be skipped unless this option is selected.
  • Group on level - Select which level within the hierarchy should be grouped.

Once you've configured the Quick Group, click Create.

Quick Transformations are created for the current structure only. If you change to another structure, it may have different Quick Transformations, or none at all. If you reopen a structure where you've previously created Quick Transformations, they will still be available (provided no one else has deleted them). 

Applying a Quick Group

To apply a Quick Group, click the Quick Transformations button and select the group you want to apply. That's it!

Structure grouped by status

You can add as many transformations as you need. Structure will remember the selected transformations, so the next time you open that structure, they will already be applied.

Grouping Order

Groups that affect the same levels are applied in the order they are enabled.

In the example below, we selected Status first and then Epic, so our structure is organized Status > Epic > Issues.

To change this order, unclick the active Quick Groups, and click them again in the order you want them applied.

If Quick Groups are configured for different levels, the order they're applied won't matter.

Hiding the Quick Transformations Panel

After you've applied Quick Transformations, you can hide the panel without removing the transformations. Click the x on the right side of the panel or the Quick Transformations icon to the hide the panel.

When the panel is hidden but quick filters are applied, the Quick Transformations button will become blue.

Editing or Deleting a Quick Transformation

To make changes to an existing Quick Transformation, locate it on the Quick Transformations panel, click the down arrow next to its name, and select Edit. To remove a Quick Transformation from the panel, select Delete.
