How do I change the column width on a RapidBoard Kanban board with lots of columns?

I've got a team using the RapidBoard Kanban view and they've got 20 columns set up. The columns are compressed and look awful instead of remaining a reasonable width and being readable. Is there a way to increase the column width and have the window scroll? It's pretty unusable as it stands and we'd like an alternative view.

Hi Zack,

There's no way to do this at the moment. Many customers just use two separate boards, one with the first 10 columns, the other with the remaining 10. This generally makes sense because boards with that many columns often include multiple conceptual stages (for example the development steps then the QA steps).


It's an answer, and I understand it, but I had to ask for a team that I'm helping set up. Thanks!

Hi, I'm sorry, but this completely defeats the purpose of using a Kanban board. Not being able to adjust the column widths means the team has to scoll down relentlessly to see all of the teams' tasks in a given column. Even if I wanted to use a "second" board to display only the backlog, it's still a narrow column. This is why everyone on my team would rather use LeanKit instead of this product. I can't really understand why this isn't a feature..?
