Start Lynx Tameflow / Lynx-x
If you want to work with Cards on the Tameflow board, you can use the Lynx Tameflow / Lynx-x application. Both Lynx-x and Lynx TameFlow can be started from Windows (search for Lynx-x / TameFlow) or in Lynx via the buttons in the Project Portfolio tab, see figure:
Download and Sign-in
If you haven't started Lynx Tameflow or Lynx-x yet, a download will start which makes sure that you are able to work with the application(s). After that, you simply can login with the same credentials as you use within Lynx:
Lynx-x is our new application, focusing on Task and Card management. Therefor, you will first open a Dashboard with My Activities, Projects, My cards and Tameflow. Within this article we focus on the Tameflow board:
Publishing cards on the Tameflow board
As explained in this article Get Started - LYNX TameFlow, the following process conditions are applicable in order to publish cards on the LYNX TameFlow Taskboard of a user:
- The "Project Status" is "Released"
- Mike is assigned (or confirmed) as a resource to the Skill Designer for "This is a Workpackage"
- The Workpackage status is "Started"
Working with Cards on the Taskboard
After login the cards are displayed automatically on the task board:
Add a new Card (Subtask):
Any user and team member with access to the workpackage also has the possibility to update and add a new card, using the '+'-button at the left top side:
Get a card Done (and Closed)
Cards can be moved from left to right. Once the card reaches the "Done" column, it is also considered as closed, a trigger set in the Card Configuration on the background will close this card automatically.
Update Ettc (Expected Time to Complete) of the Workpackage
In this example it is assumed that Mike, as a resource working on the cards within the workpackage) is in the best position to provide an Expected Time to Complete for completing all known cards within the Workpackage. He has completed one card from 8 hours and has 3 cards left (all from 8 hours). Lynx is supporting this process by showing the remaining size from cards:
As a result Mike decides to change the ETTC for the Workpackage to 3 days (or 24 hours) in the Resource Requirements.
NOTE: when working with Team Skills the ETTC process is fully automated and derived from size or remaining duration of individual cards, see this article: Get started with a Team Skill.
The Workpackage is also presented via My activities, together with other tasks. Typically the ETTC process is done via My activities only:
'My activities' - Cards View
As Mike is assigned to the Skill and Workpackage "This is a workpackage", he also automatically has access to the Workpackage via My activities. From this screen Mike can also choose to work with the My activities Cards View:
Once he has opened the Cards View, he can work with the Cards and also add/ change cards:
