Understanding Gantt, Kanban & List views

Gantt, Kanban, and List views are amongst the most used views in Teamhood. They allow you to plan, execute and analyze all of the work items in real-time. To make sure, each of these views are suited to your needs, you can customize them. Here is how.

Gantt view

Most of our clients use the Gantt view to plan their projects, map out task dependencies, set milestones, and monitor progress. While this is a rather standard Gantt chart application, there are some customization features to make it more of your own.

Rows – to visually separate different project phases, teams, departments, etc. Expand or collapse them as needed. (Same rows are used in all of the 3 views simultaneously)

Gantt rows

Task dependencies – to note down the sequence of work items.

Create dependencies by connecting dependant tasks with an arrow or by marking dependencies in task details.

Project milestones – to mark important events, achievements, and deadlines.

To create a milestone, you will first have to create a new work item and then convert it into a milestone. If needed, a milestone can be converted back into a work item at any time.

View mode – choose the type of time interval on your chart. Daily, weekly, monthly, or quarterly to view the fine details or understand the larger picture.

Kanban view

Kanban view is best used for daily task management and execution. It is easy to track individual progress and collaborate on work items. Here is how you can customize the Kanban view.

Statuses (columns) – visualize your work process from planning to completion. Moving work items through the statuses will allow you to always know what is happening with each work item.

Secondary workflow – use this to expand more complicated statuses with their own separate process. This allows you to track work item subtasks through a separate workflow.

WIP limits – to set how many work items can have a certain status (be in a certain column) at a time. Usually used for In progress columns to limit the number of work items team members work on at a time.

List view

List view allows you to oversee and analyze work items in more detail. Compare their information side by side to get the full picture. Here is how you can customize the List view.

Fields – pick which of the work item fields will be displayed in the List view. Keep the important data and eliminate the rest to analyze effectively.
