UseKanban is a seemlessly project management web application designed for fulltime teams but it can easily be used by single users too. According to Wikipedia, the “UseKanban” term is “a method for managing knowledge work which balances the demand for work to be done with the available capacity to start new work.”
In UseKanban, you can change the status of your task inside a project just by dragging and dropping it to one of the possible statuses (or columns) like: “To do”, “Doing” and “Done”. It’s really great that you can easily add your own column names which really comes handy when managing projects and tasks.
When editing or adding a new task, you can assign the task to different members part of the team, add comments and attach a file, set a deadline and a number of hours assigned to the task but also add tags.
UseKanban also nicely displays basic graphics of your weekly completed tasks and hours, all time progress and weekly hours per user which come very handy when trying to get a picture of your overall work.
The only downside that I’ve experienced inside UseKanban was when I tried creating a new UseKanban and chose to create one by associating my Github account with the UseKanban website, it kept showing me “We are loading your repositories… :)” without actually loading any of my Github repository. That’s too bad because I was really looking forward to see how would that work :(.
But if you have other new project management tools suggestions, I’d be more than glad to read them in the comments section.
