Kanban Board Landing Page

  • Upon clicking the kanban board view on the left, you will be placed on a screen with various categories for feature status shown on the top header.
  • You will also find the components that make up your product below the categories.
  • Any end dates for features, labels, and people working on the feature will be easily visible. You will find them displayed prominently on the kanban board.
  • If you want to swap the status for a specific feature or initiative, all you need to do is drag the feature to a new status.
  • Clicking on a feature will result in the side panel with the same functionality as the one in the treeview and the Kanban view.

Adding a Kanban Status

  • You can add status by clicking on the ‘Add another status’ button at the top next to all the current releases.
  • Once you do, a text field will appear, letting you type the release’s name.
  • Once you choose a name, hit Enter and the kanban status will be finalized.

Rearranging a Kanban Status

  • You can rearrange your kanban statuses after adding them to your kanban board view.
  • To rearrange your kanban statuses, click on the ellipsis of the status you wish to move.
  • Status Actions appear.
  • Now, click on the ‘Move to Left’ or ‘Move to Right’ option per your requirements. You will be able to view your desired action on the kanban board.
