List roles

In a scenario when you don't have Card statuses enabled in a Board, List roles will be set to all Lists. Roles give meaning to Lists and cards located in specified lists will be counted into results of the Analytics component.

Card Statuses must be disabled if you would like to set List roles.

During the creation of a Board, the three default Lists will have the following roles: To Do = Not Started, Doing = In Progress, Done = Completed. 

Lists are marked differently, depending on their role:

Role none

Role Not started

Role In progress

Role Completed

The fixed roles out of which each List must choose its role (None, Not started, In progress, Completed). The "None" status is set by default while creating a new List. Change the role of lists to organize the flow of work in a Board. 

Change the role by clicking on the three dots button next to any list name and select the Role.

You can still use the "None" status for Lists which have been created only for informational (or other) purpose and do not indicate actual work. 

A role can occur many times of not at all. This is up to the one who can sets up the structure of the board chooses the roles for lists. During the creation of a Board, the three default Lists will have the following roles: To Do = Not Started, Doing = In Progress, Done = Completed. 

Completion of cards will be determined by the role "Completed" of any List. Complete cards will be marked with a green completion check mark.
