Task Boards can be as simple or as complex as you need: you could start with a simple "To Do" list like this one for updating a company website...
Here's an example of a more complex workflow, in this case a distributed software team:
Inside each card on a Task Board you can capture your ideas and specific work items, large or small.
Cards can also be linked to each other, or to other boards.
You can add tasks to each card, to track all the little things (and big things) that need to get done before that card can be considered "done".
Each task can be assigned to any Team Member — or several Team Members — and each task can be scheduled separately.
Kerika makes sure that dates and assignments are rolled up to the card level, so when you look at a board you can easily see when the card is really due, and everyone working on every task on that card.
You can chat about your ideas or tasks, right on the card itself.
These conversations can get pushed to you as emails, if you like, and they remain forever connected to the card making it easy to retrieve even months after a board has finished.
You can attach content to every card on a Task Board:
Every board can be kept private, or shared with others.
Tags and color coding makes it easy to filter your view of large boards: we have seen some large teams work with boards that contain over a thousand cards at a time!
Every Task Board can have its own custom workflow, and if you want to capture your organizations best practices or standard methodologies, that's super-easy with Kerika's Templates feature.
Every user can create a personal library of process templates that can be used to start new boards faster.
If you want to switch your board from Kanban mode to Scrum, all it takes is a single mouse click: use the Board Settings button to change your Kanban board into a Scrum Board, and choose the Backlog that you want to use.
And, as you can see, you can also easily switch from Scrum to Kanban, and back again, with a single mouse-click!
Templates can include both workflow (the set of columns that make up a Task Board, representing the steps or phases of the project), and cards (the tasks for the project).
Every user can build as many templates as they like, and share them with others or keep them private.
Here, for example, is a template that can be used to use Google's Design Sprints. (It's one of the many templates that Kerika provides: we keep adding to our collection, to make it easier for our users to get work done faster!)
Kerika makes it super-easy to have all your Due Dates appear in your Apple, Microsoft, or Google Calendar.
(Here's an example of how you can synch up with your Google Calendar.)
