Board #

Plaky Board has your Team’s tasks, workflows and processes visualized. It helps users stay organized and keep track of you and your Team’s work.

Item #

Each Board in Plaky contains entities called Items. They are building parts of your project and they can represent any notion that makes sense to the user (task, location, client, time determinant…).
