Borgholm, Sweden, 22 December 2016

kalmstrom.com Business Solutions has released a new version of the Outlook add-on for project and task management: 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.

New views
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 editions.

"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 fee."

New icons
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 kanban board.
  • Drag and drop tasks within or between phases and lanes, or use Ctrl + the arrow keys or a finger.
  • Responsive Web Design makes the kanban board adapt to all kinds of screens.

kalmstrom.com Business 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 subscribe to Kanban Task Manager.
