The GreenHopper Task Board provides you with visibility into the progress of ongoing versions and offers two viewing modes:
- 'Compact (Kanban) Modes' — shows the standard Task Board, with a column for each mapped status.
- 'Outline Mode' — shows a mini Task Board for every issue that has sub-tasks.
To select the viewing mode for your task board project,
Compact (Kanban) Mode
The compact mode is the standard Task Board view. Simple columns populated with the issues based on the mapping defined in the Task Board mapping. Users will be able to drag and drop the issues from one column to another based on their permissions and the board mapping. Your project administrator can also add columns via the project configuration.

In outline mode, GreenHopper will create a small Task Board for every issue that has sub-tasks. The parent issue will be represented as the header of a small Task Board that will be populated with all of the parent issue's sub-tasks. This makes the progress of the parent easier to follow. All issues without sub-tasks will populate a Task Board at the bottom of the page called 'Other Issues'.
