Hi folks 👋
It’s time for our next use case marathon discussion. Let’s talk about Kanban planning with the Board View!
If you need a comprehensive visual approach to your team’s work and want to ensure everyone is on the same page, Kanban could be a great fit for you.
You’re a team lead and need to quickly see your team’s work in a simpler view with less data. This is especially useful for meetings where work statuses (what’s in progress and what’s not started yet) are the most important discussion point. You also need to change task statuses quickly and can do so during these meetings via drag and drop.
Start with creating statuses that make sense for the type of work that you’re currently executing. You can use the Kanban workflow:
- To do: Tasks that are up next - you'll work on them after current tasks are completed
- Doing: Tasks that are in progress
- Done: Completed tasks
- Backlog: Deferred or on hold tasks
- Canceled: Tasks that are no longer part of your work but which aren't ready to be deleted
After that, you can start creating projects and breaking down your work into tasks using these statuses, and prioritize your work on the Board View.
What functionality is being used:
- Folder structure
- Custom Workflows
- Board View
