  • Kanban board is a great visual that shows every team member's projects and all the important information on a single page.
  • Kanban integrates well with JIRA to track and manage projects and quickly retrieve specific information on a project.
  • Kanban allows easy navigation with drag and drop features and smartly notifies the user of each action.
  • Kanban does not show the task or story clearly. You have to open the project separately to view the details of the project.
  • Kanban gives a higher level project management view but it lacks customization and personal settings features.
  • I would like to see Kanban provide mobile access to their tool, data, and board. This would be very useful for all companies and provide an increase in efficiency and productivity.
Kanban is well suited for a fast-paced working environment for larger teams who want continuous communication with users. Kanban is good for rapid development and daily meetings for updates and statuses. Kanban is less suited for smaller teams or groups who don't require collaboration and constant communication with involved users. Kanban is time-consuming and it takes additional effort outside of your regular work to maintain and manage the tool.

Kanban Tool is used in almost all departments, from HR (used for example for employee agile evaluations) to marketing. I believe this proves that it has a lot of applications.
  • time tracking which is very useful
  • easy, intuitive interface (click-and-drag) - it's easy to implement it
  • analytics and reports
  • synchronization with other applications
  • no iOS app
  • no chat
  • can't think of anything more
It is hard to think about such a situation. You can customize to your needs so it may be useful in lots of situation. I guess if you are not a fan of agile and task management it might be less appropriate. ;)

I suppose it would not be suitable for processes that are quite static - not a lot of change takes place (long-term projects), as a user would probably not benefit much from most of the available features.
