I'm trying to use my company's JIRA installation with Kanban. I would like to customize the columns shown on the board. However, my columns do not align neatly with the company defined workflow. For example, I would like rhe "In Progress" status to map to 3 differ columns on the Kanban board. Meaning that an "In Progress" ticket needs to go through 3 team internal states before moving onto the next company defined status.
When trying to get the board to work, I customized the columns. I can add new columns and name them whatever I want. I can also assign a status to a column. I can also assign multiple statuses to one column, but I can't assign one status to multiple columns, which is essentially what I need.
Am I approaching this correctly? Am I using JIRA's kanban feature the right way or is there another feature that I should be using?
