Within Teamwork, you can switch to board view to organise tasks in the project using cards within columns. 

Everyone on the project will be able to view the board.

You can use columns to represent the progress of a task through various stages.

To access the board view in your project, click the board icon in the top right of the Tasks area.

Once you switch to board view, you can create new columns (as long as you have the appropriate permissions) using the Add a Column button. Give your column a name and if you like, you can choose a color.

Click the Save button and do the same for any more columns you'd like to add. You can edit the column name or color later just by clicking the name.

When task cards are added to a board column, any cards assigned to you will be highlighted by a green border.

You can also use drag and drop to reorder cards within a column.

To rearrange columns, just click (outside the title in the header) and drag them in the same way as cards to their new position.

Viewing and editing options

In board view, you can hide the project sections and the site header so that you can work with a larger area to organise your tasks. Just click the View Full Screen button to switch.

When in full screen view, just click the toggle to revert back to the regular view.

In the column settings, you can also add triggers to automatically make changes to cards, set a default task list for cards, and choose a sorting option for the column.
