Boards layout

Boards let you organize your work like sticky notes that you can move across columns. They give you a clean, visual overview, with all the same power of a project in List View. Add items to your board, then drag and drop to move work around or track it through multiple stages.

Create a board project

Create a board view for your project

Create a new project by clicking the + button from your project list in the sidebar, or the orange + button in your top bar. Select Board as your project layout.

It’s not yet possible to change your project layout once the project has been created. You can multi-home existing tasks to a new project with boards layout.

Create columns

Click Add Columns to get started in a new project. Use columns as categories to group related work or as stages like “Ready”, “In Progress”, and “Done” to track a specific workflow.
