Stages let you and your team get a bird's eye view of how product development is progressing for the seasons/designs. From design to approvals or sample rounds to production, you can assign stages to your Techpacks and view them at a glance at any time.
So in short, you can create custom stages, and assign stages to all your techpacks, filter your techpacks stage-wise, now you may identify bottlenecks quickly and this keeps your entire team on track.
