Working with the Kanban visualization

Updated 10 months ago by Abhiram

In Japanese, Kan means visual, while Ban means cards, which is represented by items in Projects. Kanban visualization gives you a powerful drag-and-drop interface where each work item is represented as a card—just like sticky notes on a wall. All cards are then grouped by columns. You can add items to your board, then drag-and-drop these items to move work around or track it through multiple steps. Columns can be grouped based on assignees or steps.

Using Kanban visualization

As a project admin, when you create a Kissflow project, Kanban will be the default visualization for your team. The Kanban button () will be auto-selected during this time.

If you are already using another visualization, i.e., List or Matrix for your project, you can click the Kanban button () on the top of the page to change the visualization back to Kanban.

Filtering items

Filtering is the perfect way to cut the clutter and just view the items that pertain to specific criteria. Use filter and advanced filter conditions to view specific items on your Kanban visualization.

Changing field visibility

To quickly manage system and form fields that should be visible on your item cards, click the Show/hide fields button () at the top of the page. Then, from the drop down, select the checkboxes to enable the fields that you want to see on the item cards. For best performance, you can select up to 20 fields here.

You can search for items in your Kanban visualization using the Search box for projects. Click the Search box beside the Show/hide fields button () and enter the item name that you want to search. You will instantly find all the items on your Kanban board that match your keyword.
