Board (Kanban) View

Martin Večeřa

The Board View shows items on a board organized in columns based on any of their attributes. Most typically, the columns are created for each task state, or for assignees, or for sprints among which we reorganize tasks.

For each column, we can see how many cards there are (in its footer) and we can also select an attribute that we want to aggregate for each column (e.g. time spent, budget, story points…) in the column header.

We can select an attribute with the due date which then shows us Due soon and Past due warnings.

We can also select which columns represent the done state and thus no Due soon and Past due warnings are shown there.

The columns can be reordered by a mouse drag. And individual items can be dragged between columns.

Values on the cards can be directly edited. Changing the value that determines the card column position will move it automatically.

Configure the attributes visible on the cards as well as their order.

An example of the Board View usage can be found in the article How to track progress of a project on the board.
