Just Launched! — Enhanced Kanban Board to Visualize Your Team’s Work

by Claire George

The power of kanban is more than just visualizing your workflow. It pushes everyone to understand what needs to get done next — so priorities are clear and the team can work better together. This is why we continue to enhance the workflow board in Aha!

Choose whether to display cards on the workflow board in swimlanes by individual assignee or see everything assigned to the team.

You could always visualize the status of cards by assignee on the workflow board, showing each team member’s work in an individual swimlane. But sometimes you want a broader view of everything the team is progressing on. Now you can choose to show cards with or without swimlanes.

If you are not using the workflow board in Aha! yet, you might need to enable it in your workspace. Check your user permissions — product owners and marketing owners can customize workspace settings.

Let’s take a look at how you can use the workflow board:

Choose what to show First you need to decide whether you want to display master features, features, or requirements on the workflow board. Then you can apply filters to show exactly what you want. The example below shows a features workflow board filtered by specific users. We added product and release filters to further refine the view.

Save your filtered view so you can easily access and share it at any time.

Group the cards The workflow board shows cards grouped in swimlanes by assignee by default. See the new setting in the customization dropdown menu for grouping cards? This is where you can choose the “None” option to refresh the board with a team-focused view.

Other customization options include card layout, workflow statuses, and capacity planning information.

Kanban fans will love the flexibility to choose swimlanes or no swimlanes. 

After all, effective teamwork is key to building and marketing successful products. Now your workflow board can mirror the way you get things done — as a team.

Sign up for a free Aha! trial — be happy The workflow board is available to all Aha! customers. If you are not already an Aha! customer, you may want to sign up for a free 30-day trial or join a live demo to see why more than 250,000 users trust Aha! to build and market lovable products.
