Kanban for QuickBase
What is Kanban? Kanban is a simple way to visualize and control the work a team is doing, and prioritize upcoming work.
Like Scrum, Kanban is a process designed to help teams work together more effectively.
Kanban is based on 3 basic principles:
1. Visualize: Visualize the work to do. See a map of all work in all stages of completion in one place.
2. Limit Work In Progress: Limiting the number of work in progress (WIP) tasks improves focus on the highest priority work all the way through to completion.
3. Enhance workflow: When something is finished, the next highest thing from the To-Do List is moved forward. Constantly prioritizing the To-Do list is key to ensuring the team is always working on the highest value work.
****NOTES FROM CURATOR***
This is a complete app that easily organize your tasks and bring more efficiency to your workplace. It is well constructed with multiple icons to keep you on top of tasks.
Very Useful tool
While I did not use the Kanban tool, I was able to create a similar page using the concept. Very satisfied with this functionality.
Kanban for Quickbase App
Modified the download app pretty extensively, but this is a reflection of our peculiar approach to Kanban much more than the app. The great news was that I got the app up and running in a few days (working intermittently), and it got a really positive reception from the team. Thanks for the resource!
Very much needed for agile methodology of project management. It has tasks, checklists, tracks and labels. Good. I think it can be even better if the following were done: 1. Sync up the Tracks with the labels. Having both is confusing and involves double work. One has to change the track and then change the label to the corresponding value. 2. While Checklists is good, let us create sub-tasks within tasks. Some tasks are so complex that they have sub tasks that need to be tracked with more than a "done" checkbox. 3. When all the items on a checklist for a given task are complete, automatically change the task to DONE and the Label to Complete. 4. Let us track the estimated effort as a 1, 3, 5 and 8 (8 for infinity) for each task.
