How to use pinnery?
With pinnery you can organize your projects with boards, columns and cards.
To understand how pinnery works its the best to imagine a board in the real world. This board equals to a board in pinnery.
Then you subdivide this board into multiple columns, e.g. Ideas, To Do, In Progress, Test and Done. This columns are called columns in pinnery, too!
In the case you, your friends or colleagues have some good new ideas you write them on a small post-it sticker which you will stick on the board into the column Ideas. This stickers are called "Cards" in pinnery.
As soon as you have decided on an idea you move the sticker to the second column, To Do. Now you see all the tasks that still need to be done in the "To Do" column.
Whenever you decide to use something from your board you move the sticker into the In Progress column. This prevents you from working on the same task at the same time and everybody can see what you are actually working on
Before you move all the finished tasks from In Progress into the Done column, you can run a test. You can also skip the test that depends what you are working on.
Every finished task is in the Done column now. You can delete the card when it's done but then you dont't hafe the benefit to evaluate your whole project anymore.
