@John_Hung in Switching from Boards to List View (and vice versa) (which is now closed)
I’m surprised you need to ask what problem it solves after 100’s of requests for this - even before you closed off the other topic.
Boards are good as a manager for seeing whats happening - reallocating tasks to different parts of workflow etc. BUT …. With all the missing features, its unusable if that’s the only way to view a project
In practice Boards are never usable because at some point you might need something from the List functionality and at this point you are s****d - have to do massive reorganization to switch and reassign columns to lists etc. I have one project for example where I mistakingly hit board, and now its going to be a pain to switch back.
When I share a board, for some people List is more appropriate, for others Board - depends on how they think and their relationship to a project, e.g. as a manager I might want to see the workflow, while someone working on it wants all the details in List that are Missing features in Board.
Missing and needed from Board … seeing which other projects a task is in (crucial as projects are often sorted into one project on a per-client basis, and another on a team basis and third on what kind of work it is, or some kind of Sprint that goes across projects.
Boards are much slower when you need to click into the details of projects, or see Subtasks.
That’s just a few missing things from Boards , @Eric_Ang_Ze_Cheng listed some other details that are important and missing NONE of which would be a big issue IF I could switch back and forth between two different views on the same project.
As it is, I would suggest a big dialog box when anyone chooses BOARD - “Are you sure you want to use Boards, its crippled. And you can’t change your mind later”
