But Why should I use kanban boards?

The Kanban Board Live Application is an easily digestible way to convey high-level project details and goals for yourself and your team. By utilizing the cards and column format unique to a Kanban Board, users can identify and manage the status of current objectives within a project or an outline on the status of multiple projects all at once. Cards are moved from left to right through the columns to show progress and coordinate teams executing tasks.

Users can also @mention documents, dates and people in a card to manage projects and deadlines.

Empowering you and your team

When utilizing Kanban Boards users can @mention documents, dates and people in a card to manage projects and deadlines. @mentioning people and dates is an easy and effective way to delegate tasks to you and your team; @mentioning documents will allow your team to access the relevant documents quickly, ensuring that they're equipped with the means to complete tasks quickly and easily. Additionally, project statuses are fully customizable allowing users to make Kanban Boards truly their own.
