BOARDS

Kanban Board

Create a Kanban Board and start the collaboration

A Board represents a set of Items one Team works on. It gives the Team the opportunity to collaborate and enables them to track their performance. It helps you organize your work. You can customize your Board to suit your needs.

How to create a Kanban Board in VivifyScrum?

Each Board belongs to an Organization. You can create a new Board within every Organization you can access:

  • Your Organizations,
  • Organizations you are a member of,
  • Organizations you have the access to as a Guest.

Click the + Add New button and choose Add Board in the Sidebar or click the Add new Board card on the My Boards page. You need to define the Board Title. The Organization you are creating a Board in also needs to be set. 

The Owner of the Organization will have the Board Owner permissions. If you create a Board within someone else's Organization, that other user will be the Board Owner, and you will have Admin permissions on the Board.

VivifyScrum supports two types of Boards: Kanban Board and Scrum Board. Choose Kanban. Later on, on the Configure Board page, you can switch between these two Board types.

After you choose the Kanban Board, if you already have existing Boards, you can choose to import Team Members and Configurations. The import is optional.

As it was mentioned, VivifyScrum can be used not only as a Scrum but as a Kanban tool as well. Kanban Board is a one-page Board with manageable lists of tasks/items. By default, three Lists will be created: To Do, In Progress and Done.

You can add new Lists, rename the existing ones or delete them. Your personal kanban board is the best option if you want to organize your work in one Board view within multiple Lists.

VivifyScrum allows you to import your existing project files from VivifyScrum, Trello and Pivotal backup. You can do that from the Boards page(within an Organization), by clicking on the button ‘Import’ in the upper right corner of the screen. All you need to do is to upload your exported file.

Export Board

If you need to export your Board, you can do it by clicking on the drop-down menu button in the upper right corner of the ‘Product Backlog’ page.
