Kanban Task Manager Single for Microsoft Outlook

Kanban Task Manager logotypeThe Single version of Kanban Task Manager uses Outlook tasks that have been given extra dropdowns for project (and lane if you want to use swim lanes). You can also add a custom tag for your tasks.

The information from the dropdowns is not only used to categorize the tasks – it is also used in the Excel reports available for this version.

Design

Kanban Task Manager Single is installed in a folder under Outlook Tasks. When you open that folder you can see your different projects and tasks on a virtual kanban board. You can create new projects and tasks with a few simple steps.

Kanban Task Manager Single stores your projects, tasks and settings in an Access database that the application creates on your computer. The database is open, so you can use all the data in it as you wish.
