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 product process management.

Grouping by Sprints

You can use Sprint grouping for sprint management. Refer to the tips below:

  • Select 'Group by: Sprints' in the filter toolbar.

  • Create a new Sprint by clicking the blue '+' button in the top right toolbar.

  • To activate the drag and drop capability, select 'Sort by: Drag & Drop' in the filter toolbar. You can now move tasks from backlog to sprints and move items between sprints by changing the order of the cards inside their own column, in addition to dragging and dropping them between columns.

  • You can also check Sprint statistics by clicking on the graph icon below each Sprint column.

  • To mark a Sprint as deployed, you can click on the three-dot icon at the top of a Sprint column and click to open the menu, then click "Release".

Note: When releasing a Sprint you will be prompted to decide where to send incomplete tasks if any exist.

Product Process

A Kanban view is great for your product process management.

We’ve made Craft.io flexible so that you can customize the product process to match your team's workflow. You can find the default workflow inside Workspace Settings > Workflow & Statuses, but you can rename, delete and add as many statuses as you want and update the workflow as you see fit (for more information about Workflow & Statuses go to this article).

We recommend using the Product Process view (under "Track" in the Navigation menu) to easily mange and track the status of items and manage your product process.

This view includes a Kanban board with Grouping by Status and Filtering 'Type' by Section. You can update the status of items by simply dragging them between the columns:
