Boards FAQs

To create a new board, start by click the + button at the top of the app. Once you've named your board and provided a brief description, you'll have the option to add board lists. These are the columns of your board to help you organize your tasks. You can think of them as different stages or steps in your workflow. For example, if you're managing a project, your board lists might include "To Do," "In Progress" and "Done." Adding these lists allows you to visualize and track the progress of your tasks as they move through each stage. 

Board contains a list of tasks, organized into columns that usually represent their status in terms, such as: Pending, In Progress and Complete. This visual approach to project management is commonly referred to as a Kanban. Boards help organizations visualize the work required for a project, collaborate together to get it done and track progress during the process. 

The Boards app is not exclusive to certain roles or departments; it's for everyone, from the top brass to the newest recruit. Whether you're a team leader coordinating projects, a marketer managing campaigns or an individual organizing personal tasks, Boards empowers your entire organization to stay organized, manage its initiatives and orchestrate productivity at every level.

What is a Board?

A Board, in the context of project management, is a visual representation of tasks and their statuses. Think of it as a digital whiteboard where you can organize tasks into columns or lists, with each task represented by a card. Boards help teams visualize their workflow, track progress and collaborate effectively on projects. In the Boards app, you can create multiple boards for different projects or teams, making it easy to manage tasks and stay organized. 

What is the Boards app for?

The Boards app in Appward serves as a dynamic project management tool, drawing inspiration from Kanban boards to help organize and track tasks effectively within your organization.
