Kanban Task Manager SharePoint Editions

Generally the both SharePoint editions of Kanban Task Manager have the same features. The differences depend on how SharePoint sandboxed solutions and add-ins behave and are not unique for our products. The most important difference is how the editions are installed.

For SharePoint 2010 users there is no other options than the Sandboxed Solution, but organizations with later versions or Office 365 SharePoint can choose whichever edition they prefer. We will continue to update both editions.

Details

The most detailed descriptions of the Kanban Task Manager SharePoint editions are given in the manuals, but these are the important differences:
 

Sandboxed Solution

  • The Kanban Task Manager Sandboxed Solution .wsp file is downloaded from the kalmstrom.com website and uploaded to the root site of a site collection. When the file has been activated in the root site, it is available for all sites in the site collection. It has to be activated on each site where it should be used.

  • The Kanban Task Manager Sandboxed Solution supports SharePoint 2010 and above, both on-premise and SharePoint Online.

  • The Kanban Task Manager Sandboxed Solution uses JavaScript as much as possible, and the code is to 99% running in the browser. However, a very small part also runs on the SharePoint server.

  • The feature "Move tasks to another kanban board" is only possible with the Sandboxed Solution. Add-ins don't have permission to access other sites.

  • The Kanban Task Manager Sandboxed Solution supports attachments, videos and inline images in the task description field.

Add-in

  • Kanban Task Manager SharePoint Add-in is installed with the "add an app" command. The .app file can be downloaded either from the SharePoint Store or from the kalmstrom.com website. If the file is published to the Add-in/App Catalog, it will be available to the whole farm or tenant under "Apps You Can Add".

  • Kanban Task Manager SharePoint Add-in does not run on the SharePoint server at all. Instead all functionality runs in the browser.

  • Kanban Task Manager SharePoint Add-in supports SharePoint 2013 and above, both on-premise and SharePoint Online.

  • Kanban Task Manager SharePoint Add-in may be inserted as an App Part on any page in the site where the Add-in is installed and configured.

    The App Part supports attachments, videos and inline images in the task description field, but attachments, videos and inline images are NOT supported in the Add-in. To use these, first configure the Add-in and then insert Kanban Task Manager as an app part in a page.

  • Due to permission limitations in SharePoint add-ins, Kanban Task Manager SharePoint Add-in does not support moving tasks between kanban boards.
