It is easy to drag and drop tasks within
or between different phases and lanes.
Tasks for multiple projects can be displayed
in one kanban board.
You can filter tasks by priority, project
and responsible and, if enabled, also by a custom field.
The filter is kept at refresh and browser restart, so
users can bookmark the filtered view and share its
URL with other users who have access to the same

Every user can, for example, send a manager the path
to a filtered view that shows only that user's tasks.
If this is done regularly, it is easy for the manager

changed into something that suits the organization better.
