Work Board Overview

About the Work Board 

The Work Board is a centralized view of all Work organized by Location and status. The Manifest iPadOS Work Board uses the Kanban system to provide users a clear visualization of all the current Work in progress at any Location and a quick way to find Unassigned Jobs and/or Tasks that need to be completed.  Finding the Work Board

The Work Board can be accessed by selecting Work Board on the bottom menu. 

Using the Work Board 

Filters & Search Options 

The search bar gives users the ability to look up Work within a location using keywords and/or numbers related to the template, model type, or ID.   

The various filter options give users flexibility in customizing their view based on what’s important to them. The following filters are available for the Work Board. 

View My Work or All Work

  • Selecting My Work will load only Work assigned to the user

Filter by Work Type

To filter by Work Type, select the Work Type dropdown, and choose the desired type from the list. Work is divided into the following types:
