  • 11. How to switch between board views?
     

    Kanbanchi offers several options to see cards on your board – Kanban View, Gantt Chart View, List View, Team Workload, Reports and Archive. To switch between different views, click the view button on the left panel of the board. Then just choose the view your need from the drop-up list.

    Kanban View

    When you want to monitor the progress your team makes it’s easier to do that with the Kanban View. It is a horizontal view where cards are places in the lists, which can represent categories or stages in workflow process. It will help you understand what milestones are being met and where you have bottlenecks in your project.

    List View

    However, sometimes, you’ll want to quickly look through all your cards, sort and filter them to easily access the ones you need. In this case, List View will come in handy – it displays a list of scrollable cards and allows you to quickly look through them from top to bottom.

    Archive View

    Archive allows you to save information that is not needed now, but might be needed later. The Archive feature includes archiving cards, lists and boards.

    Gantt Chart View

    Gantt Chart View demonstrates how your cards relate in time. You can see the duration of your cards across a timeline and visually plan and adjust project schedules with your team.

    Team Workload View

    The Team Workload view is very helpful while managing projects. It allows you to see how many tasks each team member has.

    Reports

    Data reports in Kanbanchi will help you to understand the performance and the current status of your project.

  • 18. Can I create card from email?
     

    You can create new cards on your boards by email. First, decide what board you want to send cards to by email. Click its title on the top panel to access Board settings.

     

    Once there, find and click Board email on the right panel.

     

    Copy the email address associated with this particular board. 

    Note: It’s a unique email address for your account, so when you create cards by email, they appear on the board as created by you. Keep it secret and don’t share it with others!

     

    When you send a message using the copied email address, a new card will be created with card title being the subject of your message, and card description – the body of your message. You may add tags to the card placing tag names in the square brackets in the subject of the message and attach files to the message. 

    Card, that was sent to the board by email will have a tag “from email”.

    Saving board's email address as a contact

    If you're going to use this feature frequently, we recommend saving the board's email address as a contact in Gmail.

    Add the first part as a name, and 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.

    Please note: some email clients, e.g., Outlook, don't let save contacts with the same email address. These contacts are detected as duplicates. Saving multiple board emails as contacts in Outlook will lead to incorrect card creation. 

    You may also use Kanbanchi Add-on for Gmail to create cards from the inbox.

  • 20. 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.

  • 31. How can I make a copy of any board?
     

    In Kanbanchi you can easily make a copy of a board. To do it click on board's title on the top panel and choose Board settings from the drop-down list.

     

    Then just choose Copy board among Actions on the right.

     

    A copy of the board with all cards will appear in the main folder of your Google Drive. It will also be opened next to the original board with the prefix Copy of. All settings will be copied, excluding comments, sharing settings, notifications, and dates in Google Calendar. We also advise you to check Permissions of attached files, because the original files might belong to the owner and be placed in the owner's Google Drive.

  • 32. How can I receive email notifications when my dashboard is changed?
     

    If you want to receive email notifications when changes have been made to your board you need to enable them in the Board Details. To do it first click on the board’s title on the top panel and then choose Board settings from the drop-down list.

    After that tick the Email notifications option in the popover window on the right.

     

    Then you can choose from the drop-down list how often the App will send you emails:

    • as soon as possible,
    • once an hour,
    • once a day.

    You also need to choose which cards on the board you want to receive notifications for:

    • all cards,
    • cards assigned to me, 
    • watched cards.

    You can tick all the variants. 

    Kanbanchi will notify you when:
    - a card has been assigned to you
    - a new card has been created
    - a card has been deleted
    - a new comment appears
    - a card's name has been changed
    - a card's description has been added or changed
    - a file has been attached
    - a card's due date passed
    - a card has been moved to another list
    - a card's priority has been changed

    Note, that notifications will be sent only if you are not the only member on this board and changes are made by other people.

    In case you want to receive notifications on cards that have not been assigned to you, mark these cards as watched. Open any card you desire to receive updates for and then click on the Eye symbol located at the top of the Card Details to the left of the card author’s name.

    If you would like to complement email notifications with in-app notifications, learn how to activate in-app notifications. You may also receive browser notifications in Kanbanchi.

  • 33. How can I export my board data?
     

    You can export Kanbanchi board data to Google Spreadsheet

    To export data from a board, click on the board's title on the top panel (or the three dots menu on the right of the title) and choose Board settings from the drop-down list.

     

    Board Details will open. Choose the Export tab at the top of the right panel.

     

    Choose the type of export you need:

    1. Card titles & description. This will pull out only card titles and descriptions of all cards on your board including archived cards. This export will be made in a form of Kanban board (columns and rows)
    2. All Active Data. This will provide you with all the data that you have on cards from this board excluding archived cards.
    3. Active and Archived data. The same as above but including all archived cards.
    4. Time Tracker data. This will only export the time that has been logged in by collaborators on your board. Learn more about this export type here.

    Additionally, you may configure the date and time format. Also, you may choose what columns the Google spreadsheet should contain.

    You may change the placement of the columns by drag and drop.

    Right after initiating the export, you will see a visual indication of the progress. Please, keep this tab in your browser open — export will take some time.

    When the export is finished, we'll send you an email with the link to a new spreadsheet with exported data. You can also open it from your Google Drive. The file will be created in the folder of your board inside the Kanbanchi folder in your Google Drive with the board name and export date in the title. Depending on your board location, it may be a folder inside the Shared Drive.
