You probably came to this article because you didn't know what Kanban boards were. Today, we're going to take a step back and explain what it is and how to utilize Dysperse's boards features.

What exactly is a Kanban board?

  • A kanban board is a tool used to visualize and organize work.
  • It consists of a physical or digital board that is divided into columns, each representing a different stage of a process.
For example, in a personal context, a kanban board might have columns for "To Do," "In Progress," and "Done." Users can create "cards" for each task they need to complete and move them from left to right as they progress through the process.

Kanban boards are useful for helping individuals stay organized and track their progress on various tasks and projects.
