What is the kanban view?

Kanban is a card-based view of your projects, opportunities, or leads. With a selected pipeline at the top, the kanban view displays up to 200 records in movable cards below each stage of the pipeline.

Note: The records that appear in the Kanban view are selected automatically. This cannot be altered.

To view projects or opportunities in the kanban view you'll need:

  • A pipeline
  • Projects or opportunities assigned to the pipeline
  • A custom list view

  5. A warning icon in the corner of a card means there are no tasks due in the near future, indicating that a customer or deal might need attention.
