Board View


When it comes to executing a complicated project, a simple nested task list may not be enough.

A task list is for you to dump all of your thoughts and break big ideas down from big goals to digestible tasks. On the other hand, the Board view aims to help you visually carry out your project step by step.

You can switch to the Board view from the List or any Sublists in your project by clicking on the Board icon at the upper right corner of the mail panel.

Press 2 on your keyboard to switch to the Board view. Press 2 again to access the dropdown menu for additional options, then use the number keys or arrow keys to navigate through the different options.

In our default Board view, the tasks will be shown in a flat layout. You can toggle on Task Bundle, then the subtasks will be nested under their parent task so the task hierarchy will be preserved as it is.
