A Kanban board can be useful to represent dynamic processes with different phases. In this respect, it allows you to visualize workflows and project progress, for example. This is particularly helpful for project planning, product development or task distribution in the team.
Good that SeaTable offers you all these possibilities with the Kanban plugin. You can learn how to activate the plugin in a Base here.
Structure of the Kanban board
The Kanban board consists of columns that stand for different steps or phases in a process. In a workflow, for example, these can be "idea", "in progress", "done" and "planned".
You provide the columns with movable cards that you can move both within a column and from one column to the next. For example, a card can stand for a work package or a task.
