You are looking at the bugs pile up in your project, the contents of which could mean your next feature could get delayed.
Your engineering lead is trying to wrap his head around the list of pending tasks. Your designer is sitting with the frontend developer trying to knock off design tasks. And the product manager is staring at the monitor trying to get a picture of where the feature stands and gauge if you can ship on time.
The thing about project management tools and teams is, everyone wants their own worldview of what’s happening in the project.
The product manager cares about the big picture. The development team cares about pending dev tasks. And the individual contributor cares about just the tasks assigned to them.
And with each team having their own way of working, it’s almost impossible to get a grasp of what’s happening and determine where the feature sits.
All Your Team’s Work In One Place
Multiple boards to fit everyone's workflow in a project
For several decades, teams have used sticky notes on whiteboards and other kanban tools to track work within their team. But we all know it takes members from other departments - design, marketing, sales - to ship great products and features.
When working on a feature that requires more than a product manager and the developer team to work together, a single board with Todo, In Progress, Ready For Deploy, and Done won’t cut it.
Starting today, each project in Zepel can have several boards to accommodate more than one workflow.
So, when the designer joins your project to help make your new feature pixel perfect, they don’t have to settle with "In-Progress" or a very meta "Design In Progress" status. Because getting pixel perfect design requires the task to go from concept to mockups to several reviews before you can hand it over to the dev team.
The best part? While other members of your team get to work within their worldview of the project without losing context, you, as a manager, can see how work in each initiative in your project is progressing just by clicking on the list board.
See how each list is progressing with list boards
If you need to take a step back and see progress of the entire project, the Project Dashboard has you covered with a cumulative report.
Get the full, big picture of your project's progress
With an easy to use interface, a desktop widget, and integrations, Zepel has helped plenty of teams ship on time already.
Today, with the introduction of boards, you can finally get a simple, full blown picture of where your feature stands in QA, Design, and Marketing.
After all, you need more than just a product manager and few developers to push a feature on time.
