What, if any, Stack Exchange site could I ask a simple question about Jira? For instance:

We are using Jira Agile and we have a board with columns:

  • Ideas
  • Next Up
  • On Hold
  • In Progress
  • Done

Cards can be moved from left to right with the goal of moving the card to done. Right now when I move the card to done it basically places it at the bottom of the done column. I would like it to sort descending so the most recent "done" issue is placed at the top of this column.

That is my question but I'm not sure where I could ask this?

  • Maybe Project Management or SQA, keep in mind I just quickly threw these links here. :) – Taryn Feb 4 '16 at 18:43
  • @bluefeet - When you say just threw these links here...I want to make sure I don't piss people off. I know how the se community works and asking a question where it doesn't belong is a big sin here...I'd hate to commit it. How sure are you? – JonH Feb 4 '16 at 18:44
  • Well I'm not fully versed on what's on-topic there but they both have jira questions, you could look at and even ask on their meta sites if it would be on-topic. It was just a "hey, these sites have these questions, maybe they could help" kind of a comment. Which again is why I commented, instead of answered you. – Taryn Feb 4 '16 at 18:45
  • Most seem to be asked on StackOverflow but this search indicate that besides pm also SuperUser has these kind of questions. My first thought was webapp.se but they only have 11 jira questons. – rene Feb 4 '16 at 18:51
  • Wow there needs to be a site to determine where to ask your question - yes I'm very serious about that! – JonH Feb 4 '16 at 18:54

    JonH, don't hesitate to ask if your question fits on the site itself. Not only can it spark a healthy discussion, but it might actually inspire folks to ask similar questions they never realized could be part of the scope. – Robert Cartaino Feb 4 '16 at 18:55
  • @RobertCartaino I asked here: pm.stackexchange.com/questions/17361/… lets hope I don't get stoned to death. I still think having a site recommend the se site to ask on would be a fun adventure... – JonH Feb 4 '16 at 18:56
  • JonH, meta.meta.meta. It's been tried. There's not enough of a problem to build yet another meta site around. – Robert Cartaino Feb 4 '16 at 18:57
  • True but not even knowing what meta site in itself to ask is tough enough. I guess the solution is ask here! – JonH Feb 4 '16 at 18:58
  • @JonH you can ask in both meta sites, that's a valid action. (Asking on two main sites is less valid though) – Shadow 10 Years Wizard Feb 4 '16 at 19:03
  • @ShadowWizard - I know I know but I'd hate too...anyhow let's see how it goes over at pm. Crossing my fingers... – JonH Feb 4 '16 at 19:04
  • Well, that's just taking a risk - better ask in the meta before doing it. No real harm, just risk of people getting frustrated on both sides. (i.e. both you and the users of the site.) – Shadow 10 Years Wizard Feb 4 '16 at 19:05
  • @ShadowWizard - I hear ya..I got question happy...I'll change that habit I promise! – JonH Feb 4 '16 at 19:06
  • Wow I love this community - pm.stackexchange.com/a/17362/22095 God Bless SE! – JonH Feb 4 '16 at 20:45

I decided to post in the project management se site, and sure enough on the same day I got an answer: https://pm.stackexchange.com/a/17362/22095

Love you SE!
