You ever tried to find a time management app that worked for you? Or you had no idea how it worked? Well, I have a suggestion for you. Kanban Flow. Here is the website: kanbanflow.com
It is super helpful for getting you on task and sticking to it…and so I will show you step by step how to get the most out of Kanban Flow.
Kanban Flow Scheduler
What is Kanban Flow good for?
It is good for:
- Planning out daily tasks
- It can be your internet planner
- School projects
- Novel writing scheduling
- Blogging Schedule (hehe, I use it for this now!)
READY to begin? I put up a bunch of pictures with this guide so you should be able to find everything!
1. Click on administration to change your colors.
2. WOO! We are in the administration part. This where all the magic happens. You can create more boards. Back on task: click on board settings. This is where you will give your board a name and set your colors, etc…Also if you click on ‘User Administration’ you can invite others to join your board. So if you have a school project this is perfect!
3. Okay, color time! Click on color. (But this page is also so you can change the titles at the top of the page so instead of To-do, Do Today, In Progress and Done…you can change it to Today, Tomorrow, Weekend, Done or whatever you want…)
4. Edit your colors by changing their names to whatever you want them to be. I have mine set as my classes and these colors coordinate with my the colors I have designated in my planner too. (Meaning: My research class is both green on here and in my planner.)
5. Now return to your boards by selecting ‘select board’. You should see a color bar at the bottom of the page. So even if you forget what your biology class color is, there is a reminder.
6. Click on the green arrow to add tasks. You need to be sure to be descriptive about what you are doing. Sometimes reading book isn’t enough. Give yourself a set and reachable goal. Don’t forget your colors!
7. It is okay if you forget! Just right click and you can change colors, delete the tasks, set responsibility if you decide to share this board with others.
8. Slide tasks back and forth to their designated area. You can slide tasks up and down too if you don’t like the order.
9. THE POMODORO TIMER. This thing is amazing. You can set your task and it gives you breaks after it for five minutes. So if you haven’t completed your task, you take a break, then continue.You can look up statistics and it keeps track of your interruptions too. To exit this bad boy you need to press ‘stop task’ and choose an interruption. Yeah, it makes you feel guilty.
10. Alright! That is it. That is the basics of Kanban Flow. And if you actually read this all…congrats! You deserve a pat on the back. Have fun.
