Kanban boards display projects at a range of status conditions, and are a useful tool to manage projects or tasks that have a repetitive nature. They give a highly visual representation of job progress, capacity and performance.
An arbitrary number of kanban boards can be created, with a user defined set of project status codes, or transitions.
Status codes are usually associated with a workflow, and the kanban board highlights progression of projects through this flow. Each column presents projects at a particular status, with the project count shown in the summary and list screens. Clicking the column heading displays the projects list in a coventional table layout.
Projects with an active status are ordered with the next project to be worked on at the top of the column. Projects with a completed status show the most recently completed project at the top.
Tasks and projects can be dragged from one column to another as a quick way to change status.
