How to Organize Tasks and Columns

Keep your Tasks organized in labeled Columns.  

The three columns that are easiest to begin with are To Do, Doing, and Done

You can create additional columns and move them around the Workspace board.

Click the “+ New Column” on the far right of the Workspace window to create and name a new Column.  Or you can hover over the name of a current column and click the “…” icon.

Add an Active Task to a Column

Create a task from the top or bottom of the column. Creating at each direction puts it in the appropriate order.  

Simply click the “+” and “+ New Task” icon on either the top or the bottom of the column.

Move a task by hovering and then clicking and dragging. You can move a column the same way. 

You can delete a column or task by clicking the “…” icon and select delete.

Or Tasks can also be removed from a column by marking them Complete. Hover over a task and click Complete, and then it disappears from the Active view.

To view all complete tasks, hover over the Column and select Active or Done to see the relevant Tasks.

You can always mark a Task as Incomplete to make it appear in the Active view again.

Find Tasks by Searching

Get to the tasks you need quickly using filtering by clicking the Search Icon.
