The Plan Board helps in planning high-level tasks, breaking them down into smaller tasks, and dispatching them to the right resource. It also shows the progress and percentage of completion of the task in real-time.

Board Types:

Plan Board: These boards are created to set up high-level summary tasks. These tasks can be later associated with Dispatch Board work Tags to track the progress.

Dispatch Board: These boards are created to create actual work tasks and assign them to people, teams, or companies. Once dispatched, these tasks are accessible by the assigned resource and update the status on the task.
