  • 22. How do I add my board address to contacts list?
     

    The structure of Kanbanchi board email address is a bit different from a usual one, due to security and uniqueness reasons. To be able to save it as a contact in Google Mail and any other email client, please, do the following:

    - Add the first part as a contact name
    - Add card@kanbanchi.com as an email address

    It shouldn't be any problem, as you can still star such contact and find it in the search field by typing the name of your board.

    Example: board address is Kanbanchi-board_nu/0pcoDTGGEZDmZ5mPYLPR75mLEVQf0N1jRhwgKdgim9DcztBtXNT4zmg5MPp1K <card@kanbanchi.com>
    First part: Kanbanchi-board_nu/0pcoDTGGEZDmZ5mPYLPR75mLEVQf0N1jRhwgKdgim9DcztBtXNT4zmg5MPp1K

  • 24. Why do I need Time zones in Kanbanchi?
     

    How to set the time zone in Kanbanchi?

    The owner’s time zone becomes the dashboard’s time zone by default. If the owner doesn’t have a timezone, UTC+0 will be set by default.

    How to change the time zone in Kanbanchi?

    Time Zone selector is available in the Board Details only for the owner of the dashboard.

    Click the Time Zone drop-down selector and scroll to choose the necessary time zone. Or just start typing to choose from the provided options.

    Note: Time Zone change influences the data collection for reports.

    What does the time zone change influence?

    When the time zone is changed, the data of the report before the change will still be shown according to the previous time zone.

    Also, if the time zone is changed, the data on the reports might be incorrect for the date this change is made.

    In what time zone Kanbanchi reports are generated?

    Kanbanchi reports are generated in accordance with the Time Zone set for the board. The board’s Time Zone is set automatically due to its owner. It is possible to change the board’s time zone, however, all the data that has been collected before the time zone changing will be represented in the old time zone format.

    What time zone does the board have if it’s created from the template?

    The board created from the template has the owner’s time zone, i.e. the board doesn’t inherit the time zone of the template.

  • 25. If I send someone the generated shared link, they can't see my board. The opened link shows only the Kanbanchi logo and no project info. How can I share it?
     

    The generated shared link is provided by Google and never works to open Kanbanchi boards. To share a dashboard with others (after you change permissions), you need to send a URL from the browser address bar.

    So, the right link will look like this:

    https://kanban-chi.appspot.com/dashboard/xxxxxx/d-xxxxxx

  • 26. Can you read all my dashboard information? Does Kanbanchi have access to other files in our Google Drive?
     

    Dashboard data (such as card description, comments, activity and similar) is stored in Google Cloud owned by Kanbanchi Ltd. We need to store this data in our database to deliver some features such as activity feed. Nevertheless, there is some data associated with a board we do not have access to, i.e. user access permissions - we can not include it into a dashboard file by definition.

    Files you attach to cards (attachments) are stored in your Google Drive, Kanbanchi does not store them in its database. When you see attachments on cards, they are just links to real files on your Google Drive.

    We access your files on Google Drive to be able to attach files on cards, but we do not read or modify files in your Google Drive. When you click on the Attach a file button, Kanbanchi needs to open a window, which shows your Drive files for you to make a selection. If you upload files from your computer Kanbanchi needs to save these files to your Google Drive. It’s only way Kanbanchi interacts with other files in your Google Drive. That is why when you first try to attach a new file to your card in Kanbanchi, a pop-up window with the request for permission will be shown to you. We ask for access to view files in your Google Drive to be able to attach files to cards.

  • 32. I have a problem with Kanbanchi. What do I need to do?
     

    1. Allow third-party cookies in your browser settings. Kanbanchi will need Google's cookies to connect with your Google account, and if they are blocked by the browser, you'll face never-ending loading.

    Chrome: 

    Chrome gives hints in the address bar if cookie settings interfere with Kanbanchi. 

    Step 1: Click here

    Step 2: Make sure the Blocked list is empty

    Firefox:

    Go to browser preferences. In cookie settings allow third-party cookies.

     

    2. Make sure you're using the latest stable version of your browser.

    3. Log out of your Google Account, clear your browser history (including cookies) and restart your browser.

    4. Sometimes, browser extensions interfere with Kanbanchi. Try disabling them one by one to identify the troublemaker.

    Here is the list of errors you may come across:

    1) Cookies are not enabled in the current environment.

    2) Google is blocked for your system

    3)Temporary server error

    4) Difficulties connecting to Google services

    5) Failed to initialize a required iframe from Google, for instance, due to an unsupported environment.

    6) Closing the popup before finishing the sign-up process

    7) Permission to the scopes required denied

    If the above-mentioned steps don't help, contact Support:

    1. Try to access Kanbanchi in Incognito (Private) mode of your browser. Please, make sure the third-party cookies are not blocked.

    2. Go to https://kanban-chi.appspot.com/dashboard/help and click the Contact Support button. If Kanbanchi doesn't load, use this link instead.

    3. Describe your actions and the results you get in detail. Inform us whether the issue is resolved in Incognito (Private) mode of your browser.

    4. Attach:

    • URL of the page, where you get the issue;
    • Screenshots and/or a screencast. You can use http://recordit.co/ or another screen recording tool.

    Here are examples of problems some our users occasionally come across:

    Can not add new collaborators. It always says “currently not available, please try again later”; No application with ID “XXXX” has been installed.

    Please, log out of your Google Account, clear your browser history (including cookies) and restart your browser.

    Bad Request 400 error when I try to load my boards.

    Unfortunately, we could not help you resolve that problem. The probable reason for such a mistake might be the consequence of connection problems on the client side (firewall, proxy, or other network software).

    Kanbanchi freezes often, and I need to reload the page. We have about 1500 cards in our dashboard. Is it possible we have too many cards in the system?

    Dashboard with 500 cards works fine, but 1500 cards are outside of the limits we have tested. So the reason is actually in the card number. We recommend you to split a workflow into several dashboards. For example, by using separate boards for Backlog and Archive.

  • 33. Why Kanbanchi asks for permissions?
     

    Kanbanchi is integrated with G Suite. That means that there's an ongoing exchange happening – information flows from your Google account to Kanbanchi and backward, for you to always be up-to-date :)

    Upon signup, Kanbanchi will ask only for essential permissions to create you as a user and get Kanbanchi going:

     

    Kanbanchi has access toPermissionWhy needed?

    Google DriveView and manage Google Drive files and folders that you have opened or created with this appTo create a Kanbanchi folder in your Google Drive for storing boards, attachments, and backups.

     

    Along the way, as you continue using the app, Kanbanchi will ask you to give permissions to access other parts of your Google account, namely:

     

    Kanbanchi has access toPermissionWhy needed?

  • 36. How to use List View?
     

    List View is an easy way to see all cards in a scrollable list in the natural order. Switch to the List View by clicking the drop-down list on the top panel near the board name.

    list view improvement

    You see the list of your cards.

    Columns determine card properties. Apart from card title, description and its overall progress you may see the following columns: Priority, List name, Tags, Start Date/Due date, Estimate/Spent time, Related cards, Checklists, Attachments, Comments, Assignees. All columns are visible by default.

    However, you may customise your List View by showing/hiding the columns. If you would like to hide any property, click the Gear Wheel icon in the top right corner and check/uncheck the elements.

    Please, note: this setting is saved while switching between Kanbanchi views.

     

     

    Moreover, you may edit cards right in the List View.

    Epic cards are marked with the crown icon in List View, just like in Kanban View or Gantt chart.

    Subcards may be grouped with epics. If Group subcards with epics is checked, you may choose to Expand or Collapse all groups. 

     

    The order of the cards in the List view is Chronological by default, but it may be switched to Manual. When switched to Manual, Drag&Drop is available. In this case, moving cards on the List View will influence Kanban View as well. But if Manual order is chosen together with Group subcards with epics, it won't influence Kanban View. 

    List View and all the changes made to Manual order are saved if you switch between Kanbanchi Views. 

    Sorting by properties is available in the List View as well.

    You may sort by card title, overall progress, tags, priority, list name, start date/due date, related cards, attachments, comments, assignees. There is no opportunity to sort by card description.

    Please note, turned on filter effects sorting. Filter configurations take precedence over sorting.

    To sort the column click on the property. The first click initiates sorting in descending order. 

    The second click initiates sorting in ascending order.

     

    The third click turns sorting off.

    Sorting can be enabled only in one column at once.

    Reset settings may be used to return to the default. It affects sorting and drag&dropping of cards. 

    Please, note: sorting settings don’t save when you switch to another view or leave the page.

  • 47. How do I use my business Gantt chart?
     

    Henry Gantt invented the Gantt chart at the beginning of the XX century. More than 100 years later his invention is still considered to be one of the most important tools for project planning and scheduling.

    Generally speaking, the Gantt chart is a graphical representation of the workflow schedule. Its main aim is to track the timeline and check whether the project meets deadlines. Also, the tool helps to keep the task implementation sequence under control. Commonly project managers in companies of all sizes use business Gantt charts. However, the Gantt chart can prove beneficial to various businesses and teams.

    For example, Enterprise companies rely on the Gantt chart to schedule activities far ahead. Small teams may use the business Gantt chart to depict the tasks for the upcoming months. Both may utilize the chart to share the strategy with the stakeholders or external clients.

    How does the Gantt chart work?

    The way the Gantt chart represents the information is really easy to understand. It shows the list of tasks on the vertical axis. The horizontal axis shows the timeline. Tasks are depicted as bars on the chart. Depending on the width of a bar you can observe the duration of the task.

    A proper Gantt chart shows task properties as well. For instance, it's progress, status and relations with the other tasks.

    business-gantt-chart-knb

    Kanbanchi Gantt chart

    Digital Gantt chart brings more convenience to task tracking. You only need to choose the right tool. Let's review how to build the Gantt chart in the project management tool Kanbanchi.

    The kanban view of Kanbanchi shows tasks in lists. Cards represent tasks. Kanbanchi has a very convenient setting that allows representing all the cards from the Kanban view on the Gantt chart. Please navigate to the board setting and activate the "All cards on Gantt chart" option to turn it on.

    kanbanchi-gantt

    Once it is activated, start creating tasks on the board. Tasks will automatically appear on the chart.

    Let's build the chart!

    Since the Gantt chart shows the tasks in a timeline you obviously need to set start and due dates for the tasks. Observe how the bars appear on the chart.

    business-gantt-chart

    If you use subcards you will see the epic cards and their subcards in groups when switching to the Gantt chart. Additionally, it will be easy to distinguish epic cards from subcards as they are displayed differently on the chart. Epic cards are shown with the yellow crown icon in the list of tasks. On the chart, the epic card also differs from an ordinary card.

    business-gantt-chart-kanbanchi

    You may colour code cards to bring more visibility to the chart and see critical tasks or those that belong to a specific department. Moreover, the Kanbanchi Gantt chart displays task statuses.

    Certainly, the task panel is customizable and you may choose what specific properties you'd like to observe. Need to focus on the chart? Collapse the task list completely.

    Kanbanchi Gantt chart is a convenient tool for business and it doesn't take much time to build it. Moreover, if you need to reschedule the items you don't have to do it manually. Drag and drop the edge of a bar or the whole bar to change the dates for a task.

    Task dependencies

    Usually, task dependencies are set to display in which specific sequence the task should be fulfilled. There are four types of dependencies you may set:

    • Start to start
    • Start to finish
    • Finish to start
    • Finish to finish

    On the Gantt chart, you will see these dependencies in black arrows. But if the dependency is broken, the arrow will be red.

    Milestones

    Milestones are used to mark specific points on a project timeline, e.g. date of review or release date. You may mark a card as a milestone and it will appear on the Gantt chart as a diamond.

    It's that easy!

    We've just created the Gantt chart in Kanbanchi together. Nothing to it, right? We are sure you will definitely cope with building the Gantt chart for your workflow with the help of Kanbanchi.

  • 53. ¿Cómo Utilizo Mi Diagrama de Gantt Empresarial?
     

    Henry Gantt inventó el diagrama de Gantt a principios del siglo XX. Más de 100 años después, su invento todavía se considera una de las herramientas más importantes para la planificación y programación de proyectos.

    En términos generales, el diagrama de Gantt es una representación gráfica del flujo de trabajo. Su principal objetivo es realizar un seguimiento del cronograma y comprobar si el proyecto cumple con los plazos. Además, la herramienta ayuda a mantener bajo control la secuencia de implementación de la tarea.

    Normalmente, los directores de proyectos de empresas de todos los tamaños utilizan diagramas de Gantt empresariales. Sin embargo, el diagrama de Gantt puede resultar beneficioso para cualquier tipo de empresa o equipo.

    Por ejemplo, las empresas empresariales confían en el diagrama de Gantt para programar actividades con mucha anticipación. Los equipos pequeños pueden utilizar el diagrama de Gantt empresarial para representar las tareas de los próximos meses. Ambos pueden utilizar el gráfico para compartir la estrategia con las partes interesadas o los clientes externos.

    ¿Cómo funciona el diagrama de Gantt?

    La forma en que el diagrama de Gantt representa la información es realmente fácil de entender. Muestra la lista de tareas en el eje vertical. El eje horizontal muestra la línea de tiempo. Las tareas se representan como barras en el gráfico. Dependiendo del ancho de una barra, puede observar la duración de la tarea.

    Un diagrama de Gantt adecuado también muestra las propiedades de la tarea. Por ejemplo, el progreso, el estado y las relaciones con las otras tareas.

Navegue hasta la configuración del tablero y active la opción "Todas las tarjetas en el diagrama de Gantt" para activarla.

    diagrama-de-gantt-de-negocios

    Una vez activado, empieza a crear tareas en el tablero. Las tareas aparecerán automáticamente en el gráfico. ¡Construyamos el gráfico!
    Dado que el diagrama de Gantt muestra las tareas en una línea de tiempo, obviamente necesita establecer fechas de inicio y vencimiento para las tareas. Observe cómo aparecen las barras en el gráfico.

    diagrama-de-gantt-de-negocios

    Si usa tarjetas secundarias, verá las tarjetas épicas y sus tarjetas secundarias en grupos cuando cambie al diagrama de Gantt. Además, será fácil distinguir las cartas épicas de las subcartas, ya que se muestran de forma diferente en el gráfico. Las cartas épicas se muestran con el icono de la corona amarilla en la lista de tareas. En el gráfico, la carta épica también difiere de una carta ordinaria.

    diagrama-de-gantt-de-negocios

    Puede colorear tarjetas de códigos para brindar más visibilidad al gráfico y ver las tareas críticas o las que pertenecen a un departamento específico. Además, el diagrama de Kanbanchi Gantt muestra los estados de las tareas.

Además, si necesita reprogramar los elementos, no tiene que hacerlo manualmente. Arrastre y suelte el borde de una barra o toda la barra para cambiar las fechas de una tarea.

    diagrama-de-gantt-de-negocios

    Por lo general, las dependencias de tareas se configuran para mostrar en qué secuencia específica se debe cumplir la tarea. Hay cuatro tipos de dependencias que puede establecer:

    • Empezar a empezar
    • Empezar a acabar
    • Terminar para comenzar
    • Terminar para terminar

    En el diagrama de Gantt, verá estas dependencias en flechas negras. Pero si la dependencia se rompe, la flecha será roja.

    diagrama-de-gantt-de-negocios

    Los hitos se utilizan para marcar puntos específicos en la línea de tiempo de un proyecto, p. ej. fecha de revisión o fecha de publicación. Puede marcar una tarjeta como un hito y aparecerá en el diagrama de Gantt como un diamante.

  • 55. Is there a way to change the owner of a board? Or can we have more than one owner of a board?
     

    There can be only one owner of a board. The sharing settings in Kanbanchi are provided by Google Drive. Unfortunately, Google Drive does not allow more than one owner.

    Within Google Workspace / G Suite domain, Google Workspace / G Suite Admin can move ownership of all files, including Kanbanchi boards, to other members of the organisation. This option is very useful when one user leaves, and another comes in his place.

    The board owner can transfer ownership to another user by clicking Share in the app or within Google Drive.

    Note: ownership can only be transferred to another user in the same domain as the current owner.

    Click the Share button on the top panel on the right and the "Share with people and groups" window will appear.

    Start entering the new owner’s email in the "Add people and groups" line. Then choose the email and click Send.

    The user will appear in the list of those who have access to the board. 

    Click on "Editor" on the right from the new user and choose Make owner from the drop-down list.

    Confirm the transferring by clicking Yes in the "Make this person the owner?" pop-up window and the owner will be changed.

    In order to transfer ownership within Google Drive find the folder containing the board file. Click on it with the right mouse button. Choose Share in the pop-up window. Repeat the actions that are described above.

    We advise waiting a couple of minutes (up to 10) to make sure the transfer is completed. You may also check if the transfer has been completed by visiting the board. Open the Board setting panel. The new owner's name should appear in Board details.

    Personal users (gmail.com) cannot pass ownership of their boards to other users (unlike with Docs and Sheets). A quick workaround would be to share the board with a colleague, who you want to see as the owner. Then the colleague should сopy your board into his or her Google Drive, thus becoming the owner of this copied board. All settings will be copied, excluding comments, sharing settings, notifications and dates in Google Calendar. Permissions of attached files also must be checked, because original files belong to you and are placed in your Google Drive.

  • 62. Как использовать бизнес диаграмму Ганта?
     

    Генри Гант изобрёл свою диаграмму в начале 20 века. 100 лет спустя, бизнес диаграмма Ганта все ещё считается одним из самых важных инструментов для планирования проектов.

    В общих словах, диаграмма Гант представляет собой визуальную репрезентацию рабочего расписания. Основная задача диаграммы - отслеживание временных рамок проекта. Так же, диаграмма помогает контролировать последовательность выполнения задач. Как правило, диаграммой пользуются менеджеры проектов. Но нужно отметить, что диаграмма Ганта может принести пользу различным бизнес сам и командам, вне зависимости от их размера.

    Например, крупные корпорации используют диаграмму Ганта для долгосрочного планирования деятельности. Маленькие команды могут полагаться на диаграмму для контроля задач на ближайшие месяцы. И те, и другие могут беспроблемно использовать данный инструмент для демонстрации клиентам и учредителям.

    Как работает диаграмма Ганта?

    Информация на диаграмме отображается действительно понятным образом. По вертикали отображается лист задач. По горизонтали располагается график времени. Задачи на диаграмме показаны в виде полос. В зависимости от её длины, можно судить о длительности задачи.

    Диаграмма Ганта может также отображать свойства задач. Например, статус и зависимости от других задач.

  • 67. How to receive in-app notifications in Kanbanchi?
     
    In-app notifications in Kanbanchi are updates about activity on Kanbanchi boards, which you receive in real-time in the app.

    Enabling in-app notifications in Kanbanchi

    In-app notifications are turned on for all new boards that you create. However, they may be turned off for some boards if they have been created a while ago. To enable in-app notifications for a particular board, first, click on the board’s title on the top panel and then choose Board settings from the drop-down list.

     

    Turn on the in-app notifications first and then configure what types of notifications you want to receive. You may receive notifications about the updates of cards and important activities (for example, when someone assigns cards to you or mentions you in a comment). Also, you may choose cards on the board you want to receive in-app notifications for (all cards, cards assigned to you or cards you are subscribed to).

    Here are the default settings for in-app notifications for all new boards. Please, note, that for some old boards that you've created some time ago, you will need to manually reset in-app notifications.

     

    Receiving in-app notifications in Kanbanchi

    Notifications are located behind the bell-shaped button in the top right corner. When you have new notifications, the badge appears, which displays the unseen notifications count. Click on the notifications button to view your notifications.

     

    The red badge displays the number of unseen notifications

    Notifications from all your Kanbanchi boards are gathered in one place. Looking at a new notification, you are able to see at a glance what board it belongs to, which card it is about and who performed the change. You can also use a filter to see notifications only from a current board or from all boards.

     

    Due Date Notifications and Notifications before the Due Date

    If you set a due date on a card, you will receive a notification in case it's overdue.

    You may also set up notifications before the due date to be notified in advance. Consult this FAQ for the details.

    Let us know if there're other types of notifications you would like to receive by dropping a message to Support. Also, learn more about an option to receive e-mail notifications and receive browser notifications in Kanbanchi.

    Kanbanchi default setting for all new boards is to choose cards you want to see on the Gantt chart when switching to this view. It helps to have only necessary cards on your timeline leaving all the cards that represent side tasks or contain descriptive information on kanban and list views.

    However, if the nature of your project requires all cards to be on the Gantt chart, you can change your board setting to adding cards automatically. This option may be found in board settings.

    If there's a need to remove any card from the Gantt chart, board collaborators may do it in card panel.

  • 79. Kanbanchi reports requirements
     

    General information about Kanbanchi reports

    This article contains information about the requirements for creating data reports in Kanbanchi.

    What plan should I purchase to have access to the reports feature in Kanbanchi?

    The data for reports creation is collected only for the boards which owner is subscribed to the Professional plan. Kanbanchi automatically started collecting the statistical data for reports creation from 25 April 2019 for ALL the boards which owners are on the Professional plan. Consider upgrading your plan if you need to create reports for your boards.

    If I have cancelled the subscription, but want to renew it now, what data my reports will be based on?

    If the owner of the board cancels the subscription, we stop collecting data. After the owner renews the subscription the data collection will be started again. However, the data for the unpaid period will not be available (and you may see a flat line or a gap in your reports). The data that has been collected before the subscription cancellation will be still available. 

    What statistical data is collected for reports to be generated?

    The data collected for reports generation: board ID, the number of cards in each list, the number of done cards in each list.

    What changes may influence my reports?

    Change of plan may influence the data view (gaps for the periods when the owner of a board was not on the Professional plan). Also, changing the Time zone of a board may result in some incorrect data representation. Please, learn more about Time zones in this FAQ article

    Requirements

    Please, note: a collection of statistical data for reports may be affected by such factors as:

    -disabled cookies;

    -installed browser extensions;

    -installed antivirus software;

    -installed firewall.

    All these factors may result in incorrectly collected data and, consequently, a corrupted report.

  • 93. How can I use Kanbanchi Archive?
     

    The Archive feature includes archiving cards, lists and boards. To archive a board, open its details and choose Archive board from the Actions menu.

    When you archive a board, it moves to a special tab on the start screen. All the collaborators will find it there.

    When you archive cards or lists they move to the archive of the same board. Each board has its own archive. To switch to this Archive, use the drop-down list near the board name.

    You may easily unarchive cards, lists or boards and they will return to where they have been before.

    The Archive is available to all users on the Professional and Enterprise plan. If you are on Starter and need Archive, please, consider upgrading your account.
