Working in a field where keeping track of fast-changing dynamics is crucial for managing the workflow in an efficient and sustainable way. As a supervisor of a team of 15 people, having an easy and understandable system to monitor daily tasks and prioritize with ease is essential to our work success. Achieving that is very much owed to this app. This software is also a great tool for our team whose work environment is 30% based on Google Drive docs and having Kanbanchi files in the familiar setting helps us navigate more easily through numerous documents we use daily. In our eyes, Kanbanchi was instantly recognized as a good marriage between G-suite habitat and a project management tool.
It allows us the flexibility without overwhelming the team members and it's a really fun way to effortlessly engage the staff and control our workflows. One of the most valuable features is the automatic sharing of attachments which is making sure everyone is updated in one place by receiving email and in-app notifications about the status changes. The filters are designed in a logical way and it lets me fastly grasp who is assigned to which task and to keep an eye on due dates. Having the possibility to backup our previous activities is helpful as it allows us to quickly access our past projects and connected documents. All in all, this is a great app for anyone who wishes to be on top of all assignments share relevant info in an efficient and engaging way.
The interface is simple and intuitive and it gets the included people engaged while at the same time allowing such a clear overview of all ongoing tasks.
Navigation is effortless. There is an overall sense of gratification when using this app so basically, Google built a nice software for people suffering from OCD. Result: more piece of mind and more team confidence.
Integrated chat would be a nice feature with a possibility of limiting access.

I had noticed my productivity dropping as more projects and tasks seemed to pile up. I have tried multiple task and project management platforms but always found myself looking at an exhaustive list of tasks that left me anxious and without a good plan of attack for the work ahead. I sort of had an idea of how I would like my work to be organized but didn't find anything that could accommodate until I found Kanbanchi. It allowed me the freedom to device a system that works for me, which I think is the most important since everyone works in different ways. Similar to Trello, but a lot more professional, in my opinion, Kanbanchi is a KanBan style framework with a lot of great tools in an uncluttered format which has greatly increased my productivity. Each week, my email inbox is 0 because it all gets forwarded to my Kanbanchi system. Emails end up in my Kanbanchi inbox where I can categorize, set estimated amounts of time for each task (based on my customized filters), set priority levels, and group with other tasks within a project. I can then drag the task to a specific day of the week when I will want to work on it, setting up each day based on the estimated time tasks will take (knowing I like to work on more complicated longer tasks in the morning, and quick, easier tasks in the afternoon). When I now look at my workload, I just focus on each day's tasks and don't have to think about the rest knowing I will get to it when that day comes up. The customer service has been great and I take pride in knowing that they are a smaller company that can easily adapt and change the software based on my recommendations in a timely manner. I did free trials of at least 8 different software tools before deciding Kanbanchi was the right one for me. I run a small non-profit community development organization and Kanbanchi has given me peace of mind knowing that my work is organized and prioritized efficiently and effectively.
Extremely flexible allowing you to create a system specifically designed to meet your own neurosis and OCD.
Sometimes there is a short lag when dragging and dropping items.
I can tell they owners are constantly improving this product and look forward to seeing how they can make it even better.

I use Kanbanchi for just about everything from organizing my work projects to keeping track of my Christmas list! Very easy to use!
Ease of use and the adaptability for keeping things organized
I don't like having to view the app through chrome on mobile devices - would like to see an app in the future.
1. It would be nice to be able to add an alias/name/id/legend for the background colors for the cards.
2. More colors for both the background and the color tags, and possibley the ability to color the card tags...?
2. A button that creates a new card, with templates that can be customized and wizard driven to set default tags, checklist items, etc.
3. I really like how kanbanchi's lists organized across the top and they can be 'closed' but it becomes cumbersome when you have many lists... I wonder about a left side menu displaying all lists with the ability to 'pin' lists open on and off the dashboard...?
4. I'm not sure how you would improve this - but I use the Activity view when My supervisor wants to know what I have worked on all week for eg. In fact I have shared the dashboard item with him and he is able to 'watch' may activity whcihc is great. Maybe the ability for filter by string, and by date, and create reports...etc.?
5. A button to 'archive' the card, kind of like how Google Inbox handles mail to be archived. Then it would stay in the list and either hidden or sent to the bottom of the list...?
6. Enterprise pricing for big and small organizations
Just some suggestions for you

This is touted as the number one Kanban app for the G Suite! I love both Kanban and Google services... and so, logically this Kanbanchi has been an easy choice for me.
First, exports. I love the abiliy to export your data into a file format that can be easily used for analysis and reporting.
We use Kanbanchi mainly for organizing our tasks (per person/team/priority) for the office. Easy for all team members to access and we even have a big screen on the office to see real time movement of our tasks from created to doing to done.
Plus the look and feel of the app is great. Smooth as they say. Our rule is that for our tools to be easily adopted by the users/team, we need to make it simple, beautiful, and easy to use. Kanbanchi it is.
No cons so far, pretty much loving this software for our Project Management and Task monitoring use case.

I love doing Kanban the Japanese way and it's made simple for me and my PM team via Kanbanchi!
Thanks to my Japanese friends I was introduced to Kanban boards. We used to do it via post its onto the bulletin board... until it got too crowded, and post-its stopped being sticky. So, we decided to migrate to an online/digital Kanban board. We chose Kanbanchi to complement our G Suite subscription.
We display our board via a lard LED screen in the office, and Kanbanchi works well for us. We change the background often to catch people's attention and to make it more pleasant and interesting to look at.
It's easy to create cards and move them around. Easy to make comments and updates on the cards or boards. The entire team can log in and update all at the same time and we are all kept aware of the changes via the notifications or just simply looking at the boards. At the end of the week, it is easy to download a spreadsheet/report of all the done or outstanding cards left.
No mobile app. Yes, accessible easily via web browser but it would be great to have a dedicated mobile app for both iOS and Android.
