Boards and Tasks

Create as many boards as you need in the Workspace. For example:

  • To divide the work between several teams that use different workflows
  • To divide the work and track progress by sub-projects, project phases, customers, etc.

Jump to:

Adding a New Board

To add a board to your Workspace, under the Workspace, click Add Board. Give the Board a name.

To create a new Board similar to an existing Board, click the duplicate icon to the right of the screen.

Navigating Boards

Use the navigation arrows to navigate between Workspaces and/or Boards. To move between boards, click the down arrow when on the Workspace, and navigate Boards using right and left navigation icons.

Using Kanban Boards and Stages

Stages represent phases in the Project. You can drag Tasks between Stages as they progress.

To add and customize Stages:

  1. Open the Board in Kanban view. 
  2. Hover between 2 existing Stages and click +. Give your Stage a name, and drag it to a new position if needed.


  3. For each stage, set a status (color) to indicate if Tasks in the Stage are classified as Not started, In progress, Done, or Blocked.


    Note: Two Stages may have the same status, depending on your actual workflow.
    Using common Stage statuses allows each team to set their own process, while providing a standard, unified view of progress across all Boards within the Workspace, or across multiple Workspaces.
