Name Your Board
After listing out your hundred of tasks for the Children's Run Charity event, now you would like to focus on some crucial tasks at the initial stage. Simply create a board.
To add a board, click on the "Add board" button, type in your board name.
Tip: You could create multiple boards for different stages of your project.
Start Adding Tasks to Board
Start by adding existing tasks from the task list which you want to focus for this stage.
Click on the "+" sign at the top right corner of a column, choose "Add existing tasks".
Of course, if you didn't find anything you want to add in the existing tasks, you can create new tasks in the board view.
Choose "Create new tasks" instead.
Note: The newly created tasks in Board view will be added in the Task list view as well.
Tip: Pressing Ctrl (or Alt on Mac) will show the breadcrumbs, by that you will know which subtask belongs to which parent task.
Don't Forget the Details
You could add more detailed information by setting start/due dates, assignees, and tags.
Click on the "date", "assignee", "tag" icons to set additional information.
Tip: By pressing the Spacebar, the detail panel will show up for you to add descriptions, attach files, leave comments, etc.
Track and Organize the Progress
You can reposition tasks in the column for higher priority. Also, you can drag and drop tasks to different columns for progress tracking.
Now, you will be able to see the dynamic status of your project at a glance.
Feeling like all the tasks are squished into one column and it's getting harder to get a hold of the workload and status of each team member?
You can use filter/sort feature to group your tasks by the preferred attributes. For example: grouped by assignees to see each members' responsible tasks.
