Customizing your Kanban board

After you have created your Kanban board, you will need to customize it based on your workflow process and your team's capacity. Some of the key customizations include:

  • Modeling your board columns to mimic your workflow
  • Setting minimum and maximum constraints for your workflow status so as to control the work in progress
  • Controlling what issues will be included and displayed on the board
  • Categorizing issues on the Kanban board in swimlanes
  • Creating custom filtered views with quick filters

Visualizing workflows with Kanban

One of the core concepts of Kanban is to visualize the team's workflow to better understand what the team is currently working on, what the workload is like, and where in the workflow a given task is.
