Default Kanban Diagrams

Using Default Kanban Diagrams

A default Kanban diagram can be set for the entire repository, and each individual user can also set their own default Kanban diagram; in both cases there are specific options to locate and open the diagrams. These defaults help you to quickly and easily get access to a Kanban board and immediately start contributing to work items that will deliver value to the customer.

To track your own work, you can select:

  • The 'Start > Today > My Kanban' ribbon option, or
  • The 'Construct > Task Management > Kanban > Open My Kanban Diagram' ribbon option

To track the team's work, you can select:

  • The 'Construct > Task Management > Kanban > Open Project Kanban Diagram' option or
  • The 'Model Default Kanban' menu option from the diagram Caption Bar

Set the Model Default Kanban

A default model Kanban diagram can help you to visually track a range of work items and their current stage of development through an initiative. This feature ensures that all team members can visualize the important work items in a consistent way and allows them to track the work items as they move from an idea in the backlog through to completion ultimately delivering business value to the customer.
