You must have the 'Administer Project' permission for a particular project in order to configure the settings described on this page.
The GreenHopper Task Board provides you with visibility on the progress of ongoing versions. You can view all of the issues assigned to a version and their status at a glance, as well as transition issues through a workflow by simply dragging and dropping it.
You can configure how the task board displays for a particular project, by adding, moving, renaming and/or removing columns from the Task Board. Each column can also be associated with multiple workflow statuses and resolutions. Based on your workflow and your TaskBoard mapping, GreenHopper will present the available workflow actions to users when dragging an issue from a column to another. If the workflow screen of your workflow step asks for the "Resolution", users will also be able to select the Resolution for the issue.
Tip: Creating a Default Task Board Mapping
You can create a default task board mapping in your Global Settings. The project settings described on your project's own task board mapping page will override the global defaults. However, if a project does not have any settings configured, then the global defaults will apply.

You can add, remove, move and edit columns from the Task Board, as described below:
Each Task Board column has one or more statuses as well as one or more resolutions associated with it. Any issues viewed on the Task Board will be sorted into the appropriate column based on their status-resolution and the statuses-resolutions of the columns. For example, if you assign the 'Open' status (with any resolution) to the first column on your Task Board, all issues with the 'Open' status (and any resolution) will be grouped under the first column (provided that the issues are also assigned to the project version that you are currently viewing with the Task Board).
Please note, an issue can only appear in one Task Board column at a time. This means that you cannot have the same status-resolution combination assigned to more than one column. For example, you can assign 'Resolved'-'Fixed' and 'Resolved'-'Won't Fix' to different columns, but you cannot assign 'Resolved'-'Fixed' to two different columns.
To assign one or more statuses and resolutions to a column,
