In this article you will learn:
1. What is the Board view?
You find the Board view for each project right after the list view
The Board view follows the structure of a Kanban board, so you find your project tasks as cards in columns
It offers three grouping options (by status, responsible, and summary task)
Each task card displays the same information as in the netplan and offers the same menu options as well
2. Board view grouping options
You can choose between three grouping options for your project Board view
Group by status
This is the default grouping for the Board view
You can find the columns that are named “Planned”, “In progress”, and “Done” based on the available task status
Within each column, the tasks are sorted based on the List view order
You can drag and drop tasks to change the status
Group by responsible
In the columns, you find all tasks assigned to one project member
You can drag and drop tasks to change the responsible or assign unassigned tasks
Group by summary
Each column represents a summary task of your project. Therefore, when you switch from List view to Board view, you’ll find all tasks and milestones in the same order.
The column on the left side in Board view would be placed at the top in the List view.
You can also design your own workflow and create a customized Board view by adding columns and adjusting the column order.
3. Moving task cards in the Board view
Group by status & responsible: You can drag and drop tasks from one column to the other, e.g. to change the status or assign someone as a responsible
Group by summary: You can drag and drop columns to change the order of summary tasks in your project. You can also drag and drop tasks within the same column or into another column to place them in the right order.
4. Creating tasks in the Board view
At the bottom of each column, you can add a new card
Creating summary tasks in the Board view
On the far right side, you can add new summary tasks
