How can I implement a Pull System in Jira's Kanban?



  • As far as I understand, in Kanban, each column is divided into two sub-columns: "In Progress" and "Done". A performer from the next column pulls the items from the previous column's "Done" sub-column. This is how a pull system works.

    But in Jira's Kanban board there is no way to divide a column into "In Progress" and "Done". How do you cope with this?

    Does this limitation forces team members to always ask the other team members (from the previous column) which of their items are "Done"?



  • JIRA allows you to modify your workflow and add new statuses. You don't need to divide columns, just add new columns that reflect what you want.

    I would look to build a workflow something like this:

    To Do

    Dev

    Dev Done

    Test

    Done

    Thus a tester would look at the "Dev Done" column for work that they can pull into "Test".

    If you have more elements in your workflow you can add the additional 'Done' stages for them as well.
