Task Management SoftwareThe Power of the Kanban Method

We don't need complex systems to manage daily work tasks. On top of that, the more involved our tasks are, the greater the benefit of seeing them clearly and straightforwardly. So, for presenting and managing work efficiently, we need a system that is first and foremost visual and intuitive.

Relying on a task management solution that your team can understand and use with ease from the start will help you prioritize and meet all deadlines. It will also increase the efficiency with which your team processes work, minimize wasteful multitasking, and reduce stress, allowing the team to enjoy their work more.

The Kanban board:
A simple, yet powerful tool

Kanban Tool app for teamwork with WIP limits

To sort and plan the team's work, it may be simplest to order all tasks by their completion status, such as planned, started, in review, and done. This is the core concept behind Kanban boards—each column holds tasks of a given processing status, and team members move the task cards along these columns as they complete work. This provides a real-time overview of the process state, speeding up communication and helping everyone stay on the same page.

Additionally, the Kanban method aligns with the use of work-in-progress (WIP) limits to complete tasks faster. Instead of splitting attention among five different items, agree not to start more than two, for example, and only begin new ones after these are completed. In Kanban Tool, a leading web application for Kanban-based project management, you can decide whether to use WIP limits, on which work stages, and what values to assign to the limit.

Enhanced scheduling with calendar view

A robust Kanban board system for business use will offer a calendar view of your Kanban tasks without overcomplicating the separate views themselves. This way, your team's daily work can be guided by the clear Kanban view, but any date-sensitive work can also be tracked in the calendar. Kanban Tool boards support an interactive calendar with highlights on due dates, start dates, task timelines, and any custom dates your unique workflow uses.

Customization for your unique needs

Not only should the board layout be customizable to your specific process needs, but you should also be able to decide what information goes on the task cards, inside and out.

Kanban Tool boards support custom boards with swimlanes, allowing you to manage several projects, clients, products, or ideas on the same page, and give you the freedom to set up your unique card template.

Process automation

If there are process actions that always take place in the same sequence, these can be automated to save time and error-proof the process. From task changes to card moves and custom notifications, process automation can serve as your board's diligent automatic assistant, handling routine actions so you can focus on what matters most.
