How to Get the Most Out of Kanban Tools
A digital kanban board is an amazing tool that manages your team’s workflow, limits misplaced effort and boosts productivity. ProjectManager.com features robust kanban tools that are sure to increase your team’s efficiency. Here’s how to get started:
1. Input Tasks
Input tasks into the to-do column on your kanban board. This is where you collect all the activities that are needed for your project. You can make this your backlog column too.
2. Enter Task Details
Enter the details to define your tasks. Use this description box to provide clear direction to your team. Set the due date and priority to signal importance and timing. Then, tag tasks to quickly refer back to them.
3. Customize Columns
Customize the columns of your board to match the phases of your production cycle. Columns can be named however you choose, and you can add as many columns as needed.
4. Assign Tasks & Collaborate
Assign tasks to your team with the dropdown menu on the card. Once assigned, it’s easy to collaborate, add files and create discussions on the board.
5. Set Up Email Alerts
Set up custom email alerts to notify you about task updates. Don’t like emails? Our software also has in-app notifications that accomplish the same thing. It’s up to you.
6. Move Tasks
Move tasks from column to column as you make progress. The task cards can be easily dragged and dropped.
7. Use Filters
Use filters to keep track of all your tasks. The more tasks you have on a board, the more you’ll want to filter by tag, assignee or priority to help manage your workload.
Manage Tasks for Scrum Teams
Plan your sprints by creating a product backlog on the kanban board. Prioritize those tasks during your scrum meeting, and the team can assign the work among themselves. Managers have visibility into the process and can stay out of the way of their self-directed teams.
Create Columns for Any Industry
Custom workflows make our software flexible enough to support the work of teams in IT, marketing, construction—or any industry. Customize columns to show the progress of how your tasks are executed, and get the clarity you need to manage workflows efficiently.
Give Teams Control Without Sacrificing Visibility
Get transparency into your team’s workflow and see what stage everyone is at with their tasks. Teams can manage their work, always know what’s expected of them and be aware of when it’s due. Managers can spot potential bottlenecks, and reallocate resources to keep things moving forward.
Monitor Progress with Dashboard and Reports
Track progress and see where tasks are in the production cycle. Get an overview of progress with our real-time dashboard that monitors project metrics, such as workload, time and more. Reports give you even more detail and can be shared with stakeholders.
