Add or modify a lane

When you create a new freeform or flexible task board, it includes the default lanes To Do, Doing, and Done. Any board member can change the names and add new lanes to accommodate the task workflow you want to track.

About this task

Unlike guided boards, the lanes on a freeform or flexible task board do not match possible field values.

Note: You cannot remove lanes from guided boards.

Procedure

  1. Open a task board.
  2. To create a new lane, scroll past all the existing lanes and click Add Lane.
    This option is available for guided boards only if the lanes are based on a reference field, such as Assigned to.
    A new, empty lane appears to the right of the existing lanes.
  3. Enter a title for the lane, then press the Enter key.
  4. To change the order of lanes, click the left and right arrows at the bottom of the lanes.
  5. To delete a lane, click Delete Lane at the bottom of the lane.
    Delete Lane appears only if the lane does not contain any task cards. If you want to delete a lane that contains task cards, drag the task cards to another lane or archive the cards first.
