Work-in-progress limit

People love to start things, but we sometimes struggle to finish them. A work-in-progress limit is a feature designed to nudge you to complete the work you already started before taking on new work. This increases throughput and reduces the amount of work that is "nearly done" – it helps you work more efficiently.

In the settings, configure when Lunatask should tell you that you have too much unfinished work. By default, when you sign up, it is set to when you have three tasks in progress When you hit the limit, you are still allowed to start working on new tasks, but a message will show on the top of the list.

The work-in-progress limit is available in Now / Later workflow and in our Kanban workflow. You can also disable this feature altogether in the settings.
