Filter Bar

  • Simple navigation via savable global filter.
  • Easy to switch between projects.
  • Easy to switch between previous, current and next release.
  • Filter bar allows a subset of the states to be shown allowing you, for example, to hide Backlog and Closed as required.

In addition to the kanban board itself, Kanbanara has also been developed around a global filter bar that allows you to slice and dice the cards displayed on the kanban board and other visualisation pages. It allows you to select what cards actually get displayed on your kanban board, listview or standup, be they for a particular project, team member, release, iteration or card type, to mention just a subset of the available options. Should you see a number above a particular filter setting, this tells you how many cards are being filtered out as a result of this setting being set as it is.
