Double Grid layout or viewing Structure on a small screen.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
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 Add Column icon “+”
- Click the Horizontal scrolling toggle.
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.
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.
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
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.
