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 Q2 2017

  • Completely new design of the kanban board.
  • A possibility of creating a new task by the shortcut Ctrl + Enter.
  • Enhancing the filter option by adding a possibility to filter by multiple projects, responsibles and priorities.
  • The filter controls will be moved to a left pane, to give more vertical space.

Future development plans

  • Archiving feature. It will be possible to export completed tasks to a separate database table or SharePoint list.
  • When filtering it will be possible to select multiple projects/responsibles instead of just one.
  • 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.
  • We will also give a possibility to display due date on the kanban cards.
  • 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.
  • Make it possible to drag an existing task to the Kanban Task Manager folder, so that they show up on the kanban board.
  • Give a possibility to use Kanban Task Manager with existing Outlook tasks instead of creating a new folder.
  • Give the option to automatically add current user as responsible.
  • 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.
