There’s no shortage of free online Kanban boards, including open source, Excel or good old Trello. But if you are here, you’ve probably heard that Bitrix24 offers you Kanban 2.0 – the most advanced free Kanban board software out there (open source version is available).
We are not going to go into Kanban definition, there’s a great Wikipedia article that covers that. Kanban has taken the world over, because it’s simple. But as far as project management goes, it turns out that sometimes isn’t not just simple, it’s too simple. Kanban 2.0 to the rescue.
Let’s look at a free virtual Kanban board example. Which tools does a classic Kanban board miss.
Kanban time tracking. That’s an easy one. By default, Kanban doesn’t track time. But it should (and it does in Bitrix24).
Kanban task automation. Again, a board is a board, and traditional Kanban doesn’t automate anything. But wouldn’t it be nice if something happens automatically when you finish a task on your Kanban board or move it from one column to another? Kanban 2.0 solutions do just that.
Kanban resource management. It’s been long known that Kanban boards aren’t effective in shared resource situation. But if you create resource management and workload planning that work with Kanban, this problem is solved automatically.
As you can see, all Kanban disadvantages are easy to overcome with the next generation of Kanban boards. That’s one of the reasons why over 6 million teams are now using Bitrix24. Importantly, Bitrix24 gives you Kanban not only for task or project management, but you can create separate Kanban boards for client management (CRM) to manage your leads and deals. Can your Excel Kanban board do that? We thought so.
