A different perspective
Switch your project to table view
By this time you must have noticed the Board/Table view switcher at the top of your project board. The most curious of you probably have even tried it. Well, let's do it one more time, with a feeling!
Click on the "Table view" button at the top of the project screen.
Great, now all your tasks are in a neat table, not unlike an Excel spreadsheet. Everything should be grouped the way your Kanban was grouped — either by List, Status or Assignee — but now your columns are one on top of another, because the table takes up the full width of the screen. At the same time you can now see additional columns next to the task title.
Sort tasks, rearrange and hide columns
In table view you can easily sort your tasks. Just click on the column name you wish to sort by, and your tasks are organized by this column now! A small arrow will indicate the direction of sorting. Click the column name again, the direction will change to the opposite. One more click — and the sorting is reset to the default one.
You can also rearrange columns to come up with a view that is most suitable for you. Just click the column title and drag it to change its position.
The main title column is not draggable, the task title always comes first.
When you move your mouse over a column name, three dots appear on the right. Clicking on them reveals the menu, where you can hide that column, if you don't need it in this view. The information will still be available when you click the task to open it full screen, but it won't show up in the table.
You can unhide the hidden column (and add a couple of initially hidden ones) using the small plus on the right.
Managing your project
In the table view you can do all the things you do in the default board view. Add new Lists and Statuses, rearrange tasks and move tasks between groups. You can also rearrange Lists and Statuses themselves by clicking and dragging the group title. Try it, and you'll immediately understand how it works.
Keep in mind, when you switch the project view, you only change it for yourself. Your teammates will continue seeing the project in the Board view, unless they change it themselves.
Now, to unlock the true power of the Table View, let's talk about Custom Fields.
