Hi Johan,

Thanks for your feedback. We are talking about how to aggregate this information and have had a few ideas about it. May I ask how many boards you typically have in a project?

Best regards,

Our "Standard" is normally one board for:

  • Administration
  • Pre Engineering & Standards
  • Procurement
  • Expediting
  • Engineering
  • Erection
  • Commissioning
  • As-built

Actually the same way we organize our files under Documents.

Johan, I understand the reason you are asking for this. However, I think there might be another way of solving your need given the currently existing feature set.

The titles of your typical board suggest to me that they are in fact phases or high-level tasks in your project. I would recommend you limit the number of boards to your project to the number of "teams" (working groups, departments etc) engaged in the project, rather than dividing cards between boards that represent phases or high-level tasks.

Then, create activities on the timeline that represent the phases (Administration, Pre Engineering & Standards, etc...) and connect each of the cards on the fewer number of boards to those activities to represent what deliverables those cards are there to accomplish. That way, you'll get more out of the swim lanes visualization and team members can focus on a single board rather than eight. As a project manager, you'll also get an easy-to-grasp overview of the progress for each phase, rather than having to look at eight different boards to get the same overview.

I hope this make sense.
