How can calendars help your process?
Calendars are finally part of your Kanban board in Kanbanize! Monitor all your due dates and deadlines through the easy access Calendar in the grid menu. What’s more? You can filter which tasks, boards or cards with custom fields you would like to keep an eye on at a given moment.
How do calendars in Kanbanize work?
The new Calendar feature in Kanbanize is a simple yet essential addition to your Grid Menu. It shows you a bird’s eye view of the cards to which you have applied deadlines by adjustable attributes. Clicking on an individual date will reveal all the cards that are due on that day for each user in the overall project and which section they are located in on the board (ex. Backlog, In Progress…) The calendar has an extremely flexible view filter option that comes in handy for larger projects with many users working to meet a large array of deadlines. For easier navigation, you can apply filters to what you see come up on the calendar at a given time.
How to use the calendar filter?
To configure the card filter, go to the Grid Menu on the right-hand side of your board and select the calendar. Choose the calendar specific filter option above the chart:
Then you must choose to Apply a new filter.
When you select Apply Filter, you will be presented with the configuration panel, which looks like this:
In addition to the Regular Fields which you can use to filter your Calendar view, you can also specify the custom fields you have already made across your boards. You can also add an additional filter from the Due Date Link to show the cards which expire by day, week, or month.
Make the best use of your Calendars, Kanbanizers, because this unifying feature is useful not only as an individual task tracking tool but also to track all upcoming or passed deadlines on the project level.
