Personal limit within column constraint

Is there any option to set a personal (user) limit within column constraint on a Kanban board? We would like to avoid multitasking. Sometimes users are working on more tasks at the same time which can cause a slow-down in the development process.

Many thanks!

Dear Rahul,

Thanks for the quick response.

I was afraid of this but hopefully we will get a new feature in the future :)



The other workaround can be to create a board for your user and set a column constraint on it.


you can set a 2 dimensional filter statistics gadget on your dashboard with assignee and status on the two axis. And you can monitor manually when a limit is breached.
