Where I work tasks can have the following statuses (that the end-users see):
To Do, In Progress, Done, and something of a joker in the form of "On Hold". As you are probably familiar with issues ideally flow from left to right, going from To Do -> In Progress -> Done. However On Hold really breaks the flow. See this picture of our board:
I don't see a problem-free place for the "On Hold"-column. Tasks may "jump" back and forth, left and right, wherever you'd place it.
The solution I can think of is to have "In Progress" and "On Hold" share the same vertical space, as described in this sketch:
Can the above appearance be configured?
You could try the following trick with swimlanes :
You should now have an overview of your board with your on hold issues clearly visible in a seperate swimlane, it's not exactly what you want but it comes close.
I believe that additional columns can't be added on top of an existing one, Will.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the Task Board meant to have the columns adjacent to each other in the flow you've mentioned:
To Do > In Progress > Done
But if there are any issues/impediments along the In Progress column, you would add them to the On Hold? Unless your use case is a bit different.
