The Projects app allows you to organize your projects cards in Kanban boards.
You’ll start with 4 columns (Future, Waiting, Current and Done) that represent the project's status from start to finish. You can also customize your circle's project board by adding, renaming and rearranging the columns!
Each circle has its own board to organize projects and tasks, track progress and collaborate with other circle members.

What's on a project card?
Projects are represented as cards that can be moved in the Kanban from one column to another. The cards include different information:
Members/Roles: Assign people to projects to easily see who does what.
Due date: Add deadlines and sort your projects by priority to prioritize next actions.
Labels: Add labels for a pop of color and to help categorize your board.
OKRs: Link OKRs to show what the project contributes to.
To do list: Breakdown project into subtasks to make sure nothing falls behind and link your tasks to your Actions app.
Attachments: Add from your computer a link and many cloud storage services like Dropbox, Google Drive, and OneDrive.
Comments and Activity: Comments can be added to cards when communicating and collaborating with circle members, like giving feedback or updates. Mention a role in your circle! The activity feed gives a timeline of all of the comments and actions taken on a project.
