Project and Month Views in Kanban Task Manager Single
Borgholm, Sweden, 22
kalmstrom.com Business Solutions has released a
new version of the Outlook add-on for project and
Kanban Task Manager Single. This kanban
style solution visualizes and keeps track of tasks
and projects on a kanban board that is integrated
in Outlook. It is suitable for anyone who prefers
organizing work or hobbies in Outlook instead of
using cards or pieces of paper.
Version 5 of Kanban Task Manager gives two
new views in addition to the kanban board: Month
and Project. They give users good overviews of task
distribution over time and among projects. The Month
view has two options: timeline and calendar.
The demo shows the
workgroup edition for Outlook, but the new views
work in the same way for single users.
Group tasks by tag
"I think the new Kanban Task Manager views
will be popular", says kalmstrom.com Senior
Developer Jitendra Patidar, responsible for the
development of Kanban Task Manager Single.
"The tasks are color coded by project in the new
Month view, just like they are in on the kanban board.
In the timeline, the tasks can be grouped by project,
phase or priority. A custom tag may be added
to Kanban Task Manager, and if this possibility
is used you can group by your extra tag too."
Feature-rich siblings Kanban Task Manager comes in three more editions,
all intended for workgroups. When creating the single
edition the kalmstrom.com developers have been able
to use much of the code from the workgroup editions,
and therefore Kanban Task Manager Single
is more advanced than most other single solutions.
A subscription to Kanban Task Manager Single
includes free upgrades, so users will benefit when
the single edition continues to grow with the workgroup
"It would not have been financially vindicable to
develop such an advanced single version of Kanban
Task Manager if we hadn't already had the workgroup
editions", says Peter Kalmström, CEO and Systems
Designer. "We cannot expect single users to bear
the costs for such a development undertaking. By
using parts from the workgroup editions we can give
single users a good product at a reasonable subscription
Version 5 of Kanban Task Manager has several
new icons. High and low priority is displayed, and
when the completed field in the task form is filled
out, a completed icon will be shown on the task
card. An overdue task is marked with a red border,
and the completed icon also gets a red top.
More efficient task handling
Here are some other features that enhance Kanban
Task Manager Single:
Use swim lanes to group the tasks on the
Drag and drop tasks within or between phases
and lanes, or use Ctrl + the arrow keys or a
Responsive Web Design makes the kanban board
adapt to all kinds of screens.
Solutions offers a trial period of 30 days for the
full version of Kanban Task Manager Single.
During the evaluation the kalmstrom.com team gives
full support, just as support is included when you
