If you are new to SwiftKanban, this is the place to get started. The links below would take you through 10 easy steps (you may even skip the last 4 steps for now, making it even easier  :-)) to get going with SwiftKanban :

Get Familiar with SwiftKanban Interface

Familiarize yourself with SwiftKanban interface elements and various modules available.

Create Your Board

Create a new workspace to manage your work, team, and processes and get started.

Visualize Your Workflow/Process

Visualize your work in terms of Lanes of a Kanban board, set WIP (Work-In-Progress) limits and much more. Alternatively, you may just use the default workflow we provide.

Manage Work using the Kanban Board

Add work cards to the Kanban Board, drag-n-drop through the defined lanes to indicate progress, block/unblock cards to indicate impediments, and use numerous other features available to manage your work visually.

Measure and Improve the Flow using Various Analytics

Measure key performance analytics like Lead Time/Cycle Time, track the Cumulative flow and find ways to improve.

Personalize Your ‘Dashboard’ View

Personalize your Dashboard view using various widgets and track progress.

Create More Users

Add more users, assign roles, and get them to access SwiftKanban. If you are a One Man Army, you may skip this step and come back when you expand your team.

Set up Your Team

Invite other team members to come and work with you on your board.

Define Your Backlog (Stories/ Defects/ Issues)

You may also create your backlog items, prioritize those and then add to Kanban Board.

Plan Releases

Define releases and tag backlog items to the releases, based on the release plan. If you don’t plan delivery in multiple releases then you may skip this step as well.
