Teamly's easy-to-use Kanban Board let teams track work progress at a glance, so everyone knows exactly where Tasks are in the pipeline and who's working on them ... as a result, work remains organized, while moving forward at a brisk, efficient pace!


In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to

  • Make custom workflows using Kanban boards

  • Create and assign Tasks to users

  • & Move Tasks between columns to indicate progress


To create a custom workflow:

1. Click Workflows in the left sidebar.

2. Click the workflow picklist located in the top navigation bar. 

3. Select + New Workflow from the workflow picklist.

5. Click the checkbox next to the names of the users who will be able to access this workflow.

Note: Users can't view a workflow unless they've been granted access.


6. Click the Create button.


Now that you've created your board, you'll want to add columns to your workflow. These columns keep work organized by indicating the stage of progress that Tasks are in. For example, you might create a Content Workflow by using the following columns:

  • Not Started
  • Writing

  • Approved

  • Published

10. Click the + New column button to add your second column.


11. Enter the name of your second column, then click the blue checkmark icon.

12. Repeat this process until you've finished creating your custom workflow.

Hint: If you need to reorder columns, just click the top of a column, then drag-and-drop it to your desired location.
