Boards provide a means of monitoring work.

Board Types

There are boards for:

  • Customers - to monitor customer relationship management or sales activities.
  • Projects - to monitor customer projects.
  • Stories - to monitor the various items to be delivered as part of a customer project contract.
  • Tasks - to monitor the various steps to implement stories.

Board Stages

Each board can have multiple stages that work progresses through as it is completed.

Stage WIP Limit

If work is being managed with the Kanban approach, each stage can be considered a work center. As such, each stage can have a work in progress limit. Work in progress, WIP, gives the ability to provide alerts when the number of work items in a stage has exceeded the defined WIP limit.

Stage Requirements

Each stage has entry and exit requirements. These requirements are just a textual definition of what must be satisfied for work to enter or exit a stage.

Add a valid estimate

Tags: estimate

Estimates provide the estimated effort to complete a task on the date the estimate was added. Estimate are added in the configured unit of estimate (e.g. hours, days, story points...). Estimates are added to the task's list of estimates. Estimates are read only and can not be changed. After the initial estimate is entered all other estimates are an estimate of the remaining effort. This allows remaining effort to be adjusted over time. Estimates can be compared with actual effort to show variance and create alerts when the task is close to going over the estimated budget.
