Kitemaker helps teams build better products. We're specifically helping integrated product teams collaborate closely to build products and features their users want. If you want to know what being an integrated product team means, Marty Cagan made this detailed article and John Cutler made this infographic.
Kitemakers' basic building blocks are work items. You can think of work items as an initiative or a bug. Internally, we use work items for things we deliver our users, and keep individual tasks as todos in the description. That way, the board becomes an overview of your team's process.
Each work item consists mainly of a collaborative document and an activity feed. Use the document part to write down what you plan to build, why it is essential, and break it down into todos. The activity feed allows you to discuss the initiative with your team and see activities and discussions happening in Kitemaker and any tool you have set up an integration with.
We also have themes, roadmaps, labels, and a lot more coming that will make your product development a breeze.
Take the time to learn hotkeys. The users who invest a bit of time in teaching hotkeys can work very quickly and efficiently. We strive to ensure that the most commonly used actions have hotkeys that are easily accessible. You can find all of them by pressing '?', and if you see something that is missing, ping us any time.
