Features, Benefits, Product Strengths
- Clean UI, Easy to Start Using – Kanbanery visual project management tool presents a simple and clean interface. Users can begin their project after one minute of familiarization, and the system helps in this as it provides a simple step-by-step welcome instruction. Adding a task on the board is done by clicking the ‘+’ (plus) button, and there are several preset choices in terms of type, estimates and priority. Users can also start by importing their tasks in CSV format into a project board in their workspace. This can also be exported back into CSV, so data is never trapped. Templates are also available, which users can copy and tweak further, add columns or rename them, and even can create their own templates for quick start. Moving the cards across the columns is as simple as click, drag and drop.
- Ready for Collaboration, Real-time Information – This visual project management tool makes it easy for teams to accomplish work. Users can invite as many members as their plan allows. An RSS feed keeps team members updated with what is happening to the project in real time. They can choose which tasks to subscribe so they can get email notifications for any status changes. This makes it ideal for virtual and geographically distributed teams. The Task Cards are very clean and simple in design, with just the right color-codes and labels to be noticeable for any update, such as when it has comments, bugs, subtask, GitHub commits, file attachments, resource assigned and status. Hovering on it will also show more options.
