What is a task board?

A board is a place where work comes to life. Think of it like a virtual white board where you can plan, track and manage anything, from everyday tasks, to complex multi-year projects. Boards are interactive and collaborative, you can work with your team and with external teams that you work on projects with.
To create a new board, click on the Quick Create button at the top of your dashboard or head to the Tasks page from the left side menu. You can create a board from there by using one of the many templates offered by Releese or make an empty board if you are working on something a bit more unique.
A board is structured into multiple components that you should familiarize yourself with: Groups, Tasks and Updates.

You can set a color icon to a board by clicking the 3 dots button at the top of your board. From here, you can also change the board’s name, members and owners. If you delete a board, it will be permanently lost.
Boards have a variety of views you can use to fit your workflow: Board, List, Calendar and Dashboard.
The Board view is a Kanban-style drag and drop component meant to show you a quick overview of what is going on: You can see the task’s title, status, priority, due date and assignee without opening the task drawer. This is best to drag and drop items between groups and see where things are heading at a glance.
The List view is meant to give a more profound overview of a board, from here you can see nearly every component that a task contains. You can also drag and drop items between groups or positions like in the board view.
The Calendar view is meant to give an overview on due dates. This is meant to manage a day-to-day calendar or a project’s roadmap.
The Dashboard view gives insight into progress of a board. From here, you can see what is done, past due, at risk of becoming past due and how tasks are divided between the different groups. This view is meant for analytics.
