I'm new to RTC. Where can I find instructions on how to setup a Kanban view of my project?
Our project does have work items and sprints.

Hi Mike,

In addition, you can reference the information center for help on creating plan views at There is more information specific to the Kanban option under the "Display" heading at

Thanks Jennifer and Mark. I've configured a Kanban view.

 Jennifer, do you know if it is planned to add the WIP limit configuration to the workitems states? Nowadays you assign a WIP limit, but to a state-group (New, In Progress, Closed).

The configuration we have today, although helps, does not allow us to really represent the kanban board we want to have within a project area.

Hi Scott --

In the web client: 

Click the Edit Plan View toolbar icon.  
Select Edit current-view from drop-down list.
Under Options, look for Display.  If it's not visible, click More.
Select Kanban or Kanban Board from the adjacent drop-down list.

please refer to for what is needed for planning. If you have no work items, and if you don't have iterations, you won't be able to use Kanban plan views.

To set it up, create a plan. Create a new Plan View. Add a display option and select Kanban as the display option. Enter the thresholds for Kanban, if you like. Then run the view.

 Just got 4.0.3 deployed. I crated a new plan, but in my view options I only see flat, rank, taskboard, tree, and tree (tracked by) as my options. I don't see Kanban.
