About this task

When you create a 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.

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.
