It has an intuitive board and available board templates that can be used to create a Scrum, Kanban, or any other project type. It has visual lists which can be organized by task, member name, work day, and others. They can stay aligned with the project goal by measuring task progress, defining task, using checklist and labels. They can also create, manage, and prioritize their boards to make project delivery easier.
