Frequently Asked Questions

There are two fast and easy ways of getting started with Kanban Zone for free and with no credit card information required.

1. Create an account using the Free Trial plan.
As an Administrator on a Free Trial, you have the ability to create and manage boards. Based on your plan you also get to manage users, customize your experience and scale to connect multiple boards.

2. Get invited by an Administrator as a Free Collaborator.
As a Free Collaborator, you get to do everything needed on a board, but you can’t create or manage boards and users. If you can’t wait to get invited by an existing member, then start now with your Free Trial.

As soon as you create your account, you get to start using one of our Kanban board templates. Everything you need to use Kanban Zone is available within our intuitive interface, full of contextual help at your finger tips. The reason we believe that we will delight you in minutes using Kanban Zone, is because Kanban is simple by design and we take great pride in keeping everything simple too.

Even with the most basic Kanban board (To Do, In Progress, Done) we believe that strictly visualizing your work will provide a productivity boost. When working with a team new to Kanban, we simply expand the In Progress column to have a few steps to improve communication throughout the process (To Do, Review, Execute, Verify, Done). Ultimately teams using a Kanban board will evolve over time to improve their starting board to match the ideal way to flow their work. Getting started is easy!

Kanban is a Japanese manufacturing system that regulates the supply of components using display cards. Each card contains instructions and specifications that move the card along the production line. Although it has often been considered a manufacturing system, Kanban can actually be used to guide the workflow for anything – personal, professional or organizational.

Kanban is a simple system for visualizing work. It is a methodology that helps to clearly organize and prioritize work and keep everyone focused so work actually gets done. It is also a way to quickly and efficiently uncover problems and bottlenecks in any process.
