The Kanban view is available for almost any object from a list view. One of the objects not available is the Task object. Kanban view gives you a great look at records, grouped together in pipeline like view.
To switch to Kanban view from a List view, click the View toggle button (#7 below) and choose List or Kanban.
Here is an overview of the Kanban View for Opportunities.
- The name of the object you are viewing
- Button to toggle from regular list view and the Kanban view.
- Button to filter records being viewed
- Search for records in the current view
- Records separated by Record Type
- Records are grouped into columns base on stage, status, etc.
- Button to adjust settings for the Kanban view such as columns and summaries
- Click and drag records to different columns to easily organize the list
- Yellow Alert icon will be different for each object. In this example it is telling the user the Opportunity has not been ‘touched’ or does not have a pending task.
Some Considerations for Kanban Views are:
- The Kanban view displays a maximum of 200 cards.
- Kanban cards display a maximum of four fields.
- Summaries can be created only for numeric and currency fields that aren’t roll-up summary or formula fields.
- If a record has a null value for the Group By field, it doesn’t appear in the Kanban view.
A new feature in Salesforce Lightning Winter ’19 are the Display Density settings which controls the amount of white space seen on the pages. There are two options:
The first is the “Comfy” setting which has more white space between Salesforce elements such as fields and related lists. The label for fields is located at the top of each value. Existing organizations will have this setting as the default. The Comfy setting looks like this:
The second is the “Compact” setting which has less white space so more elements fit onto the viewing page. The label for fields is located at the side of each value allowing for up to 30% more information to be seen. The Compact setting looks like this:
To change the Density setting, click on your username in the top right corner of the page and choose “Comfy” or “Compact” under the Display Density section.
