75. Change to Single Line of Text and click on OK


76. Navigate back to My Project SharePoint List, click on the List tab and Open with Project


77. Microsoft Project will open and sync with the Task List in SharePoint


78. By navigating to the Task Board view, you will notice that Task 4 has been added to the To Do bucket and Task 3 now appears within In Progress (You may need to click on Gantt Chart and click on Task Board again to get the view to refresh).

79. You will notice that the Task Board within MS Project is in exact alignment with the Kanban board in SharePoint



80. Drag Task 2 to Done
