Item is a container. In other project management tools it's also referred as Issue.
There are many predefined types of Items:
- User Story
- Feature Request
Also you can create your own types of Items.
Item concept in Apa is more powerful than Issue:
- Item can contain another Items inside it and any of those children Items can contain Items inside them and so on.
- It does not matter how deep an Item you want to work on is located - thanks to Panels (Items manager) it's really easy to navigate between them, create new Items and move Items around.
- Items can be put on Board, you can add comments, attach files and generally speaking work on them - just create an Item in Panels and drag'n'drop it to Board or create an Item right on a Board (double-click on any board's column).
