View and organize items on board

There're various operations and settings in Zoho Sprints to tailor the view of your board to suit your preferences.

Board views

There're different views to the items listed on the board. Click the View dropdown at the top to access them.
  1. Plain view provides a simple view comprising only the item ID, item name, and assignee.
  2. Detail view offers a more comprehensive view displaying the item ID, item name, priority level, estimation points, tags, item status, assignee, and more actions.
  3. Due Date tracker will enable you to track the items by their due date or by the measure of time since the due date. The item cards are bordered red to denote over due items and green to denote items within the due date. This tracking will be applicable only if start and end dates are defined for the items.
  4. Subitem Expand View includes the subitem details in the view.
  5. Sheet view enabled you to your sprint on a spreadsheet. Learn more.
  6. Collapse empty status allows you to hide statuses in which there're no work items.
  7. Show empty lane allows you to include swimlanes with no items in the view.
  8. Customize the fields visible in this view in Card View Settings.
  9. Create custom status in addition to the available default status. Learn more.
  10. Get live updates on the sprint board of changes made by others while viewing it.

Filter items on board

The advanced filter mechanism allows you to easily find what you're looking for. You can apply filters to the work items on the board. There are two types of filters: Quick and Custom filters. Quick filters are the in-built filters that are based on the various attributes of projects. Whereas, custom filters equip you with AND/OR conditions to create your own criteria pattern. You can save the filter criteria and reuse them to avoid the rework. Click here to learn all about filters.

  1. Go to the Board module.
  2. Select the required sprint.
  3. Click the filter icon at the top.
