How does Kanbanchi card progress automation work?

Kanbanchi card progress automation is a perfect way to streamline processes of keeping boards updated. Depending on a card status, Kanbanchi will move it to a specific list.

Kanbanchi detects three types of statuses

  • On hold – tasks that haven’t been taken into work yet or for which the work has been paused;
  • Working – tasks currently in work;
  • Done – accomplished tasks.

Click on the board title and navigate to board settings. Scroll down to Status mapping and choose the corresponding lists.


Put cards that should be fulfilled in the list with the ‘on hold’ status. When you are ready to get started on a specific task, open it and click Start working on it. Kanbanchi will move the task into the list with the ‘working’ status.

You may easily find the card in work. Just click your profile picture in the upper right corner and you will see the card you are currently working on in the drop-down menu.

When the task is done, mark it as done. Therefore, Kanbanchi will take it to the list with the ‘done’ status.

Please, note: if card progress automation is enabled, each user from a board will be able to have only one card in the ‘working’ list. The other cards assigned to the user will be moved from the ‘working’ to the ‘on hold’ list. Thus, it will be obvious what specifically the user is working on.
