Other than viewing the cards in the SwiftKanban Board, you can also view them in the list format. The Card listing page in Swiftkanban helps you monitor cards in a group and view their status, estimates, priority, or any other attributes
By default, the List view displays the cards on the Kanban board. You can select to view the list of all the cards, the cards of a specific card type, or those in Backlog. The column headings on the listing page are actually the fields configured for the card. You can scroll through left and right to view all the columns, and up and down to view all the cards. Users of all roles can see the card from the cards listing.
In card listing, you can see –
- All the cards on the Board
- Cards of Backlog Board
- Cards of a specific Card Type
To view the card listing of a Board, perform the following steps:
- From the main menu, go to the Kanban Board menu > Card Listing.
- Based on your requirement, select All cards, Backlog, or any other card type.
You will see a list of cards. By default, all the cards are shown with all the status including open, closed, archived, and blocked. The columns in the listing view of cards are the attributes of the cards like Name, Status, Done Date, Size, Rank, Created By, Priority, and so on.
All Cards Listing
In the Card listing, you can see all the cards – default cards and, also the custom cards like User Stories, Defects, Issues, and so on.
As the name suggests, here you can see the cards available in your Backlog board in the listing format. You can also add these cards to the Kanban board by clicking the Add to Board button. In the card listing of Backlog boards, some columns like Done Date will not be available as the Card is in Backlog only.
All the ToDos for the parent card are listed here. It has all the To-Do details like Current State, Estimate, Actual, Remaining, To-Do Owner, etc. You can also view the To-Do Description which provides a clear and detailed explanation of each To-Do, helping you and your team members better understand the purpose, scope, and progress of every To-Do.
Specific Card Types
Select a specific card type from the Card drop-down list after clicking the Board menu and it will show the cards of that particular card type like selecting User Stories, you will see only the user stories. So. if you want to see the cards of any specific card type, then this is the best place to see as well as perform any operations on those cards.
In the card listing view, you can add, filter, edit, delete, import, export cards, and view the information of the cards by double-clicking the card row. Some of the operations that can be performed on the cards are –
