Project settings

Default columns for new projects

You can change the default column names here. It's useful if you always create projects with the same columns.

Each column name must be separated by a comma.

By default, Kanboard use those column names: Backlog, Ready, Work in progress and Done.

Default categories for new projects

Categories are not global to the application but attached to a project. Each project can have different categories.

However, if you always create the same categories for all your projects, you can define here the list of categories to create automatically.
