Projects

Kanbanara supports multiple and fully isolated projects. A logged-on user will only see those projects they created, were invited to join or are a member of.

The filter bar allows you to easily switch between projects and to display the cards for all your projects on a single kanban board or one project at a time.

Supports multiple and fully isolated projects. Users only see those projects they are a member of. Only a project manager or deputy project manager can update a project?s settings.

Kanbanara is SAAS-ready in supporting fully isolated projects. An individual user can be a team member in any number of projects and they will only ever be able to see those projects which they created or to which they have been invited.

Only a project manager or deputy project manager can update a project?s settings.

Base

This tab allows you to declare this instance of your project as a master, a slave or standalone.

Custom States

The Custom States tab allows you to add one or more user-defined or custom states each mapped onto one of the built-in metastates.

Workflow

The Workflow tab allows you to set up the steps and columns required in your workflow.

Each step can contain a main column, a counterpart column (think of this as a second main column) and a buffer column. A step can consist of:

A Main column A Buffer column Main and Counterpart columns Main and Buffer columns Main, Counterpart and Buffer columns

For each step a display name must be assigned.

To each column must be assigned its display name, centric (e.g. owner or reviewer) and its state (custom or metastate). You can optionally add a textual description of what the state/column means that will appear as a popup on the kanban board when a user hovers over the column name.

Please feel free to leave one or more steps empty should you feel your workflow may be expanded in the future.
