h2. Usage
38 1 Eric Davis
39 1 Eric Davis
This plugin requires some configuration so it knows your specific Redmine environment.  The Readme shows a recommended configuration that I used during development.  Future versions will allow more customizations like turning off some of the panes.

Once configured, there will be a Kanban link on the top left menu.  This will bring up Kanban page, which has the entire logic of the plugin.  Make sure you have Javascript enabled and then start drag and dropping the issues.  As issues are dragged to the right panes, their statuses will be updated inside Redmine.
