The Rapid Board is an exciting new way to use GreenHopper, and includes support for multiple projects, the biggest feature request in GreenHopper’s history!

Swimlanes powered by JQL

The power of JIRA Query Language (JQL) is behind every aspect of the GreenHopper Rapid Board. Each Rapid View is built on a JIRA search, then enables additional filters. Swimlanes are horizontal lanes built on JQL search parameters, to break down the Rapid View into horizontal sets of data, such as issues relating to a specific team or portion of the project. Quick Filters are buttons built on JQL, and are commonly used to toggle between assignees or issue with a particular date value.

The Rapid Board includes a new Control Chart to show the mean cycle time and trends and an updated Cumulative Flow Diagram. The Rapid Board view and charts are also available as gadgets, to display information on a JIRA dashboard or a Confluence page.
