In my previous Posts I’ve created a simple Project for Web:
This is View in Grid. Now let’s see Board Tab:
All tasks are here! In the upper right corner I can choose between three type of Boards:
So Board can be grouped by Buckets (as you can see in the picture above), Progress or Finish Date. I will now switch to the Progress and I will get:
Here are three Buckets: Not Started, In Progress and Completed. And, basically, it is Kanban Board. And in this View there is no possibility to add/edit&remove any bucket.
Now I will drag and drop Task one to the In Progress bucket, and I will get:
Automatically it is 50% completed! But, let’s say that it is 75% completed. All I have to do is to click at that Task and I will get:
As you can see, when I put 75% in %Complete field, automatic calculation is made like this one:
- Nenad and John were supposed to work on Task which have 1 day Duration, e.g. 8 hours Nenad + 8 hours John = 16 hours – Total
- Task is 75% Completed, e.g. 16 hours * 75% = 12 hours – Completed
- 16 hours – Total – 12 hours Completed = 4 hours Remaining
With this screen I can do many other things and that is going to be explained in separate post, but for now, you should know That moving to In progress Bucket means that some work has to be done. If I put 0% in the % Complete field, Task will automatically “jump” into Not Started bucket.
If I move Task to Completed bucket, I will get:
As you can see, Task is marked as Completed 100%. If I put in % Completed field value other than 100% then Task will “jump” into In Progress bucket (if % Completed is greater than 0%), or in Not Started bucket (if % Completed is equal 0%).
In my next Post I will when and how you how to use Group By Bucket View!
Stay tuned, and Best regards!
