The Board screen in KiteSuite offers comprehensive project management capabilities. It automatically populates with sprint items once the sprint is initiated from the backlog screen. Vital sprint details are displayed, including name, owner, total effort, and remaining days. The screen features default lists like "To do," "In progress," and "Done," with the option to add custom lists directly or via project settings. Users can rearrange list order, modify list names, and easily update item statuses via drag-and-drop. Advanced filtering options enhance task management efficiency, enabling users to focus on relevant tasks.

In this article we will learn how to effectively use KiteSuite board functionality to stay updated with project’s progress.

At the outset, the board screen is empty due to the sprint not being started. To populate the board, you must first navigate back to the backlog screen and initiate the sprint. Once the sprint is active, its associated items will automatically populate the board. Adding more items later is possible by creating them within the active sprint from the backlog screen.

Sprint detail

The top section of the board screen displays vital sprint information. This includes the sprint’s name, the sprint owner’s name, the total estimated effort for the sprint, the sprint’s duration, and the remaining days until the sprint’s completion. Should the sprint exceed its due date without completion, the remaining days will be highlighted in red text.

Lists in the board screen

When viewing the board screen, you’ll encounter three default lists: “To do,” “In progress,” and “Done.” Within each list, the item count is indicated in parentheses, offering a quick overview of the number of items in that specific category. This layout provides a convenient visual representation of the progress and status of tasks within your project.
