Move a Card

LeanKit's step-by-step guide on how to move cards on your LeanKit board. 

In LeanKit, cards usually represent pieces of work flowing through a process, with lanes representing the sequential steps in that process. The work may be parts in a factory, software features and defects, construction activities, or any other type of deliverable.

As the piece of work which the card represents is pulled from one stage of the process to the next, the card is moved from lane-to-lane on the board.

There are several ways to move a card or cards in LeanKit.


Click and Drag

Simply click and hold the card, while dragging it to the desired lane on the board. As the card is moved over lanes, it creates a shadow in each lane to illustrate where it will end up when you “drop” it. When you have moved it over the correct lane, just release the card to move it to that lane.



Move a Card by Menu

Another option is to use the menu on the face of a card to move it to the desired lane. You can access this menu by left clicking on the arrow that appears on the face of each card when you hover over it, or by right clicking on the face of the card. Then select the Move to Lane option in the menu. Finally, select the lane which you would like to move the card to. 



Move a Card in Card Details

To move a card from within the card details (i.e. with the card already open):

  • Click on the card you would like to move.
  • Click on the Lane drop down menu on the right of the window.
  • Select which lane you would like to move the card to.
