Ability to create kanban board templates and add those templates to lists?
- Go to a specific list
- Click “manage boards for this list”
- Click “Add New Board”
- from an existing template
- create new
- Select “from an existing template”
- (ie todo/doing/done template uses buckets)
- (ie each column is one filter uses labels)
- alternative: Maybe we get rid of buckets and just use create labels for todo/doing done
- The kanban for each list should have a dropdown that lets you select what type of board “view” you want.
I use gitlab at work for task management and find it very powerful to use kanban boards that are powered columns that correspond to labels. They let you create multiple views per board (in this case each list would have several kanban board “views”
Different “views” of the same “objects/tasks”
I should also note that gilab has key/value label feature denoted by
:: (ie setting a label to
priority::2-high would automatically remove the label of
priority::1-critical) Note also that not all labels/tags need to have keys. Some can just be values that stack.
Because of this, for a given project my workflow depends on the verb I am executing.
If my desired verb is to “prioritize” the first columns show all open issues that are not prioritized, the second third fourth and fifth columns correspond to the labels
priority::4-low. The end state after executing the “prioritize” verb is that I have four columns of tasks that are both open and prioritized.
Then I move to the next step in my workflow which is the verb “assign priority one tasks”. This board is a different “view” of the same list. The first column is open issues that are also labeled
priority::1-critical and the next three columns would be assignees on my team (so in this case, not labels, but you get the point) I can then drag and drop unassigned priority one tasks to assignees and the end state will be that issues have both the priority tag and an associated assignee.
Another view would be a column for each assignee that shows all closed priority 1 tasks etc.
and maybe another for tasks that are both tagged with
I realize this is a huge request lol. Just wondering if Vikunja was ever going to head towards label based columns or multiple boards per list and then explain the value I think they have. Thanks much for your time!
