[New] Add a Kanban Board to your project! Drag & drop project management board

Exciting news!! We just added a Kanban board to our openBuild library!

The second widget that we added to the widget collection is a Kanban board, basically a project management board. This allows you to create tickets and drag & drop them from one stage to another on your board.

Check out a live preview here: Kanban Widget

This widget comes with workflows and is close to plug and play. You only need to go through a few steps to successfully paste the widget in your app.

Step 1

If you haven’t already, install the openBuild extension. You can do that here.

Step 2 (Required plugins)

Make sure that the following plugins are installed:

  • Draggable Elements (by Bubble)
  • openToast (by Ideable)

Step 3 (Setting up your database)

Go to the tab ‘Data’, go to the tab ‘Option sets’ and add a new option set called “Status”. You do not need to create new attributes. Add the following options:

  • New option = “Backlog”
  • New option = “In progress”
  • New option = “Review”
  • New option = “Done”

Step 4

Now go to the tab ‘Data types’ and create a new type called “Task”. For this new type, create the following fields:

  • Field name = “Description”
    • type = text
  • Field name = “Order”
    • type = number
  • Field name = “Status”
    • type = Status

Step 5 (Pasting the widget in your app)

Go to the Kanban widget in the openBuild extension and hit ‘Pick me’. Bubble will recognize that the Kanban widget is a page and will show the popup ‘Paste a page’.

Step 6

Modify the page name if desired and paste the page by hitting ‘CREATE’

You’re done! Hit preview to check it out.
