1. Introduction

Horizontal card grouping in the Kanban view is a feature allowing you to see a Board in many perspectives. You can change it at a drop-down menu on the top right corner.

There are several possible grouping options. You can group by:

If you switch to any of 5 available card grouping views, you will always know to which list a card belongs to. If it is not assigned to any list or user, it will show up in "Unnasigned" list.

TIP There is also an option of vertical card grouping. You can use it together with horizontal card grouping to get the Kanban Swimlanes view.

2. Group by lists

Board view filtered by lists you create. You will see all the cards arranged by lists to which they belong.

You can move a card from one list to another. Every card can be assigned to one list only.

3. Group by users

In this view, you will see all the cards in a Board arranged by users who are assigned to them as responsible.

The first list in a Board will be "Unassigned" which is a list for cards without any user assigned. You can easily hide it when needed.

When you move a card from "Unassigned" to person's row, the card will be assigned to that person.

If you move a card from user1 to row of user2, user1 will be added as a co-worker to this card.

4. Group by status lists

Once you enable card statuses in a Board, you can filter all cards in it by their statuses. Select Status lists in View menu in the right corner of a Board. Read more about card statuses and filtering the Board's view by them in this article.

When you turn on Status you will see the current status of the cards when you are on the Lists view. When you switch to Status list view then you will see the names of the lists on the cards where you saw status before.

You can move a card from one status list to another to change its status. Every card can be assigned to only one status.

5. Group by labels

You can group your cards also by using labels. If a card contains 2 or more labels, it will be visible in every list it belongs.

You can move a card from one label list to another. This will result in adding new label to this card. It will not remove the label from the first list.

6. Group by Due date

In this grouping option, you will see cards ordered chronologically and grouped by due time.
