How to create a list or column

Lists and columns are used to create sections in a Space. They are one and the same, just a different view. A list becomes a column in the board view.

A list can reflect the status of a task such as: High Priority - In Progress - Blocked

A list can also be specific to the team or project such as: New Lead - Contacted - Won - Lost
