Kanban Board

Do you prefer the Kanban method and work in columns? In Freelo you can create a Kanban Board alias board with columns. To-Do lists are particular columns and you can name them according to phases of the tasks such as Inbox, In progress/WIP, Done etc.

Example of a project managed in kanban boards (Inbox, In progress, Waiting for approval).

TIP: Are you coming from Trello?

In case you are used to having boards in Trello, we would recommend importing the data from Trello to Freelo.

Freelo will remember the next time you see it in the columns for the project, so you will not have to set it up anymore. You always click on the To-Do list

Now you can start moving tasks between columns according to the current task status via drag&drop. You can also move the completed tasks.
