Features

  • Customize the board to work for your team, including custom swim lanes.
  • Most editing is “edit in place” for quick updating. Create tasks and projects quickly, right from the board.
  • Assign tasks to team members to make sure they’ll get done.
  • Estimate how long you think tasks will take, then track your hours to see the progress of tasks as they get done.
  • Create custom views by filtering and searching for tasks. Bookmark them for easy access.
  • Manage the users who have access to the board, for privacy and integrated project management.
  • Data is stored separately from your WordPress data, for better privacy and security.
  • Collaborate in real-time, and see updates live.
  • Works on mobile!
  • Lots of extra features available through paid add-ons – multiple boards, to-do lists, task flagging, notifications, and more.

“Easy to install, easy to use!” – Hovig Devejian

Common Uses

While most our users are covered by the applications below, there are endless ways you can use Kanban – just get creative!

  • Project management and collaboration – just like Trello for WordPress. Kanban lets project managers make task and to-do lists and move them between various boards to show progress.
  • Editorial calendar – use Kanban to plan your content calendar over time, assign articles and blog posts, lead discussions, and meet your deadlines.
  • Customer Relationship Management (CRM) – collate customer information to analyze interactions and improve business relationships. You can easily use boards to track the status of customers and see when you should reach out to them.
  • Sales tracking – plan every activity between “now” and “sold” to make sure your funnel keeps flowing smoothly. Tracking and analysis let you see what’s working and who’s performing.”

  • Comments: Boost communication through task comments. Now everyone can discuss a task as you work on it. Comments update live as people discuss a task. View “system” comments along side user comments, to track the progress of tasks as they’re worked on.
  • User management: Take more control over your Kanban boards. Work more closely with clients and team members. Control exactly who has access to what on your kanban board.
  • Fields & Attachments: Get granular with info and files attached to your tasks. Add custom fields, details and attach files to each task. Customize the data associated with each field, to add new uses to your Kanban board. Add to-do lists for sub-tasks, dates for tracking deadlines or text fields to add notes.
  • Colors: Improve clarity by color coding your tasks. Add a colored flag to the corner of your tasks for further organization. Color-code tasks for priority, work type (development, design, writing), or whatever.
  • Notifications: Keep everyone on the same page, even if they’re not on the site. Get notified when changes are made to your kanban board. Users of your choice will receive an email updating them that changes have been made.
  • Multiple boards: Extend your work flow with multiple Kanban boards. Run multiple boards on the same site. Teams or individuals can have their own boards to manage different projects.

Reviews

This works for me

My requirement was for a task management platform for our intranet that users found simple, intuitive and (if it’s even possible) fun to use. Corey and his team have nailed it. The ability to have boards, only accessible to those who should see them, be able to have context relevant conversations and move the tasks through different stages with different owners works for us.

By nature a solution like this is more difficult than a simple task list to get an overview, so if I have any suggestion it’s to include the ability to have a shortcode that can be placed anywhere which gives a user with assigned tasks a summary, /board /lane /#count of tasks allocated to them, no detail, any click takes them to the board.

FANTASTIC plugin, highly recommended.

Great Plugin

Wow very slick. Plug in has loads of features. Think about some more freebie elements as the free version isn’t very useful. Pro version is very nice. Keen to see REPORTS and IMPORT/EXPORT. Very useable and useful.
