How to hide Unassigned / Backlog / No Entity / No Value default lane
In Targetprocess it is possible to create board views with cards grouped by lanes. On such boards, usually the first row and/or column displays entities with empty values. It is possible to apply a filter that will hide such default rows or columns and their cards.
Here is how the default lane is displayed for different lane type selected:
- Person: Unassigned
- Iteration / Release / Team Iteration: Backlog
- Entities such as Epic / Feature / User Story / Program / Test Plan / Build: No Entity
- Team / Responsible Team: No Team / No Responsible Team
- End Date / Planned Start Date / Planned End Date: No Date
- Tags: No Tags
- Custom field values: No value
- Worked on: No work item
- Role: No Role
For example, let's set up a new view and choose Person as a horizontal lane. The default row for Unassigned cards will appear as the first row. It is possible to hide it. Please apply the following filter to row configuration:
?it is not None
Now the default lane is hidden. If the row type is "Person", the "Unassigned" row will no longer appear.
It is possible to build complex rules as well. You can combine this filter with other Advanced filters using AND, OR, NOT rules and brackets.
For example, the following filter applied to Release lanes shows them only for current and future Releases and eliminates the Backlog (No Release) lane:
?(it is Current or it is Future) and it is not None
