Being a project management application, UpWave needs you to make a board for yourself. This is probably the area to start working on your first task.

As soon as you sign up with UpWave, you create your very first board and can name it as per your project names. This board is divided into columns, and you assign your tasks here using cards. The menu on the top left corner displays the name of the profile holder and the number of boards they have created. The board is divided into sections- To Do, In Progress and Completed. A card is added by the application as your first card to make get started with tasks as soon as you create your board.

The board is broadly divided into three columns- To Do, In Progress and Completed. You can add cards and assign tasks to them. The works that remain to be started on are kept in the To Do column.

As soon as the team starts working on it, this card can be moved to the In Progress column of the board simply by dragging your mouse over the board. UnWavealso provides some additional functionality with the columns- Edit Column, Move Column Right, Archive Completed Cards, and Add Cards.
