There are three types of columns in Kaiten:
The type of the first level column determines the status of the card. That is, if the card is in the column with the type:
queue, then Kaiten believes that work has not begun on it yet;
in progress, then the status of the card is also "in progress";
done, then the card is marked as complete.
To take a card into work means to move the card to the column with the type "In progress".
The type of the second level column does not affect the status of the card in any way.
1. Click on the three dots to the right of the column name
2. In the menu that appears, click "Column type"
3. Select the type you want
You will be automatically added as a participant to the card if you move it to the column with the type "In progress" or "Done". If the card did not have a single person in charge before, you will also be marked as responsible.
If you move a card to a column, and it receives the status "Done", then the timers stop on it. Example: the card has a due date November 30, you move the card to the column with the "Done" type on November 29. The due date timer stops and the due date on the card will be marked in green, which means you managed to complete the task before the due date.
Most likely the column has the wrong type if
1. moved the card to the queue and was added in it as a participant.
Solution: change the column type to "Queue";
2. moved the card to the column with the name "Done", and the deadline continues to "tick" on its facade
Solution: change the column type to “Done”.
