1. Types of views

Views in KanBo may represent a group of ideas, things to remember or the different stages of a workflow. 

There are 8 categories of views:

  • Kanban - A collection of cards grouped horizontally. Additional option is the Kanban Swimlanes, which is two-dimensional grouping (vertical and horizontal) view.
  • List - Vertically oriented way of card grouping. The lists are presented one after another in a column.
  • Table - A way of presenting cards as rows in the table. It can remind you of the Excel.
  • Calendar - This view shows you all cards that have connection with time. You can organise your schedule easily.
  • Gantt chart - A Gantt chart is a bar chart which shows you a project schedule in a highly visual manner. With this functionality, you can set a visual view for all cards which are a part of your project (Board). The cards will be seen in a timeframe view and it’s easy to see their conditions on a present day. Also, the Gantt charts will enable you to see all start and due dates of cards in your Board.
  • Mind map - A graphical representation of the relationships between cards. The most individual and creative way of planning and task arrangement.
  • Analytics - Board Analytics will help you understand what’s happening in a Board and give you an overview of all actions. Analytics insights are updated accordingly to new activities which are happening in a Board.
  • Chat - A place when you can share your thoughts related to the Board with others.

Remember Chat and basic Kanban view will be always created automatically.

2. Creating views

When a new board is created, standard Kanban view with grouping by statuses and Chat view are already generated. Press "+" button to add a new view.

3. View filters

You can select from many filtering options to adjust the view to your needs. Example below presents how to apply filtering by users from the bar on the top right corner. After that action only cards where the chosen person is assigned to will be shown.

4. Saving views

If any modification is applied to an existing view (eg. filter sorting or hiding the list at Kanban view) you will see the notification about unsaved changes. It appears at the top of the Board.

If you want to keep the changes, select "Save" option. If you choose to discard your recent steps, the view will not be overridden with changes.

5. Changing settings of views

To change the settings of a view open the drop-down menu at the view button.
