Help & Support

Help Menu

LeanKit's step-by-step guide on how to access and use the help menu from your LeanKit board. 

For your convenience, LeanKit provides a help menu in the upper right corner of each screen in the system. To show and hide the help menu, simply click the question mark icon located on the top right-hand side of the board.

The help menu options are the same unless you're on a board or in the board layout editor, where there's an additional Quick Reference option.



Getting Started


Clicking the Getting Started option will open a new browser window and take you to a special section of that's designed to help new users learn the key features of LeanKit.


Quick Reference: Board


On any board, clicking the Quick Reference option from the help menu will open a window that contains a legend (i.e., key) of the various colors and icons on the cards for that specific board. This legend automatically updates to match the way you have set up your board options. 



Quick Reference: Board Layout Editor


In the board layout editor, clicking the Quick Reference option from the help menu will open a new window that contains a legend of the various icons used to edit a lane (and briefly explains the function of each one).



Contact LeanKit


The Contact LeanKit option in the help menu allows you to quickly search for information on the LeanKit support site. If the articles you find don't fully answer your question, you may also submit a question to the LeanKit support team.


Access the Knowledge Base


To browse the support site for how-to articles or to submit a feature request, click the Knowledge Base option in the help menu.


What's New


New features and bug fixes roll out continuously in LeanKit, so we typically don't need to take the system down for maintenance.

If, however, a new feature is going to change major parts of the system that might disrupt the way you've learned to use LeanKit, we'll announce it in advance through our newsletter or product blog.

All of these announcements, whether published in advance for big features or afterwards for smaller features, are stored on our blog and can be accessed via the What's New link in the help menu. If you see something new on your screen and aren't sure how to use the new feature, be sure to check out What's New.
