Sometimes you just cannot move on with work because someone else has not delivered yet or you need a decision from someone else – a classic block up on the road. Just mark the work as blocked, enter a reason and optionally point out users who you think would be potentially able to resolve it. KanBo will keep reminding the right users about the block-ups to ensure their reaction and hopefully a quick resolution. In KanBo you will see who is waiting on you and in which cards. If cards with block-ups have relations, then KanBo will determine the critical path of resolution and prioritize the block-up reminders accordingly. Once the card gets unblocked the members of related cards will receive notifications about it. The block-up resolution time chart makes the story perfect by showing how much time it took for a blocker to be resolved.
User Activity Stream
What is happening around someone?
Life is full of surprises and that is what makes it worth living but sometimes it can be a real challenge. In situations where a co-worker calls in sick and you were asked to take over their project or someone leaves the company, KanBo’s user activity stream can be a lifesaver by showing you what that person was doing recently. Sometimes you know that a colleague is working on something that you are looking for – instead of trying to get through to her/him, you can just look it up in the user activity stream and find the context of work you were looking for. Of course, you will only be able to see activities from Boards you have access to.
