Kanban View is perfect for visualizing a workflow through the different stages, tracking progress, and assigning tasks in a manner that removes bottlenecks.
Visualize Your Work And Eliminate Bottlenecks
Kanban is a Japanese term and lean method that originated from processes used by Toyota in the 1940s. Aiming to remove bottlenecks, Kanban helps a full team visualize the general workflow, reduce overall work in progress, and focus on a squeaky clean flow of work. Work is pulled when capacity presents itself, keeping everyone happy and engaged.
Group your columns by any data variable - Status or Stage, Assigned To, or Priority. If you're tracking it, SmartSuite can group it. And it’s a lot easier than moving a bunch of Post-It notes around.
Dive on in, the water’s great! Automatically group cards into process swimlanes (rows) to add an extra dimension to your report. Drag and drop between rows to update values and keep your work flowing. 🏊
