Kanban columns are a way of organising and viewing the jobs that exist within the firm. To keep the board at a manageable level, each view needs to be structured in a way that the board does not consist of too many jobs. The firm should limit the number of columns available to users.
A Kanban column view looks like this.
The system comes with six in-built Kanban columns:
- Not Started
- On Hold
- In Progress
- Awaiting Review
- Out to Client
And, each one is attached to a default Job Status and may have it's own background colour. A Kanban column could have a number of Job Statuses attached to the one column to keep the system manageable.
Once a column has been completed, you can go to Job Status to edit the Statuses attached to the Kanban column.
