Kanban Task Manager Plans

Kanban Task Manager for Outlook logoBelow is what we want to see in future versions of Kanban Task Manager.

The priorities are fluent, but if you like a feature and wish to make it reality soon, you are very welcome to sponsor it. Then we will put "your" feature at the top of the list.

We also welcome all suggestions for future development, whether your organization has a possibility to sponsor it or not.

Current development, for release in Q4 2017

  • Preserve the filters on the kanban board after Outlook restart.
  • A possibility to use custom phases.
  • A possibility to drag existing tasks to the Kanban Task Manager folder, so that they show up on the kanban board.
  • A possibility to add a checklist for each task.
  • A possibility to record time per user on each task.
  • A possibility to change the captions of the columns Lane and Project with the SharePoint sharing option.
  • A possibility to remember the collapse and expand status of the horizontal swim lanes on the kanban board even after restart Outlook.

Development plans

  • Archiving feature. It will be possible to export completed tasks to a separate database table or SharePoint list.

  • An option to restrict the number of displayed closed tasks and only show tasks from the latest X hours, or the latest X tasks, in the Finished/Done/Completed phase, that is, the phase to where closed tasks should be moved. The hidden tasks will not be removed from the database/SharePoint list. Instead they will be retained for statistics purposes.

  • We will give a possibility to filter tasks by due date.

  • Add a possibility to export the current kanban board to a PDF file, so that it can be printed.

  • A possibility to import existing tasks into Kanban Task Manager.

  • The creator of the task will be shown in a label in the Kanban Task Manager toolbar.

  • Give a possibility to use Kanban Task Manager with existing Outlook tasks instead of creating a new folder.

  • Add a connection between Kanban Task Manager and the Outlook calendar.

  • Give a possibility to pick responsible from the Outlook Contacts or GAL.

  • If a company has a backlog list of tasks to be done it will be possible to assign tasks between multiple Kanban boards.

  • Give support for synchronization of tasks created when Outlook was off line.

  • Make it possible to use multiple boards in Outlook.
