How to use boards?

Board is basically a product, project, resource, or organizational structure that is under continuous development. It can represent anything and have a variety of uses. By default, boards have a collection of lists, and lists contain cards.

Initial board view is the Kanban view visible on the example above.

How to start?

  2. Divide the work into tasks and create cards for them.
  3. Describe cards using available card elements and categorize them.

Kanban view is the basic way to organize the work. It is focused on grouping cards (tasks) according to predetermined criteria (e.g. priority, status of completion, responsible person) represented by vertical lists. 

However, boards give you the opportunity to visualize work in a variety of ways, and Kanban view is just one of them. Considering the differences in the way each department works within the company and the individual preferences of employees, we have created 8 unique views for your projects.
