The Kanban view is a column view with Kanban behavior. You can use this to view all your items as cards, and easily drag items between columns. Among other grouping options, the Kanban view is a great layout for both sprint planning and workflow management.
Common Kanban Use cases
Grouping by Sprints (Backlog)
You can use Backlog grouping for sprint management.
- Use the New button at the upper right to add a new Sprint
- You can move tasks from backlog to sprints, and move items between sprints;
Tip: With 'Custom (Drag & Drop)' Sorting selected, you can change the order of the cards inside their own column, in addition to dragging and dropping them between columns.
- You can check Sprint statistics using the graph icon;
- Releasing a sprint from the 3 dots menu:
Note: When releasing a sprint you will be prompted to decide where to send incomplete tasks, if any exist.
Tip: To view past sprints and their released stories, make sure to filter by "Item Status: All".
Grouping by Workflow
We’ve made Craft.io flexible and customizable, so that each team that works on a product can set their own workflow and work by it. The default workflow per team is To Do -> In Progress -> Done, but you rename, delete and add as many steps/statuses as you want to your team’s workflow and rename these as you see fit.
Depending on the way your team works, a workflow can also set the maximum items per column using Max Items from the 3 dots menu.
