Fast and easy organization of Agile software development process.- It's easy to use. - Overall user experience is much more pleasant compared to Trello or Jira, that we also have to use sometimes. - The main view with boards and cards is informative thanks to custom card types, task type badges and tags. - Boards are highly customizable. - There are various card linking features. - Customer support is really responsive. They try to make a product better. Feature requests are NOT silently ignored as it happens sometimes with other software products.

I like lanes, limits, blocking option. I really fond of creating checklists that could be automatically added when you move a card and templates for card description.

I moved to Kaiten from Jira and liked it from the first view, because it reduced my daily routine and time spent on tasks management and control. I like using Kaiten because it is simple and helps me to solve my operational tasks.

The workspace allows users to create multiple boards and assign user permissions to control access.

Through the summary board, users can create a range of flows, including business and technical flows.

Blocks are displayed visually, giving users insight into why cards are not moving forward.

Users can define custom card types, assign types to each card, and add due dates to cards which have fixed deadlines.

Files can be uploaded to Kaiten, or users can link to files stored in Dropbox or Google Drive.
