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 an intro video on using the Kanban boards in Teamhood.
You can customize the Kanban view with – Rows, Statuses, and Child Status groups.
Use Kanban rows to separate different teams, types of work items, projects, etc. You can add as many as your project needs and collapse or expand them based on your current needs.
If you want to take more control of the board, you can add specific limits to each row. You can limit the number of:
This way you can easily check if the limit has been exceeded and take action.
Statuses (columns) visualize your team’s process steps from planning to completion. Moving work items through the statuses will allow you to always know what is happening with each of them.
You can edit the statuses (columns) here Settings -> Workspace -> Boards -> Workflow.
We suggest you group the statuses by their stage – Input, Work in progress, Output. And then expand each of these stages into more specific steps your team uses. In the example below, we have the following process:
Statuses in Teamhood can be of two types – regular and child status groups. The latter option allows you to expand the child tasks of your items and see them separately on the Kanban board. This means, that you can visualize both parent and child items on the board.
This is especially useful for processes with larger items, as it allows to divide them into smaller tasks and track their individual progress.
To add WIP limits to your statuses, navigate here Settings -> Workspace -> Boards -> Workflow or click on the quick action menu for each status and select settings.
Here you will be able to choose from predefined values or enter your own.
Note. WIP Limits have to be activated in the Workspace settings. Settings -> Workspace -> General -> Features.
