29 Jan Version 2 released

Enhancements:
  • Added an Extra field option with a customizable caption. Here each organization can define their own component to add to the tasks. A new table is created in the database when a name is added in the Extra field in the Configuration dialog. When a name is added, each task will get one more dropdown field where the extra field values can be selected, and the selected value will be shown on the visualized task on the kanban board. It will also be possible to filter by the extra field parameter.
  • Added the option to create Example data for the evaluation.
  • It is now possible to hide one or more of the Kanban Task Manager phases, for example the finished phase or if you have many tasks on the kanban board.
  • It is now possible to hide Projects and Responsible persons. This is useful for finished projects and responsibles that are no longer active in the workgroup.
  • The Delete icon on the delete button on the visualized task has been changed into a Close icon, and we give an option to change the behavior of the button.
    The Closed button will either delete or close the task and save it in a pre-defined phase. When a phase for this icon is specified in the Kanban Task Manager settings, the button will not delete tasks but instead move them to the specified phase. That phase will probably be hidden by the administrator, but this way the tasks will still be present in the database and used in the statistics.
  • A details pane has been added at the bottom of the screen. It shows more of the task subject and description when you right click on a task. Once the pane has been opened you can move between tasks and see the pane for each task.
  • New design for the statistics Excel reports
  • It is now possible to drag and drop tasks within phases and not only between different phases. The task ordering is maintained in both cases.
  • Improved performance.
Bug fixes:
  • An issue with the Kanban Task Manager ribbon group in the task has been solved..
  • Some organizations behind a proxy server got a premature trial over. Now Kanban Task Manager can handle it.
  • Fixed issues with non-English SharePoint languages
  • Fixed the error when select any task on the kanban board and press the 'Enter' key.
  • In the earlier version, when a filter was applied and the user pressed the key 'F5', the tasks disappeared from the kanban board. Now it is fixed.
  • Fixed compatibility issues with Kanban Task Manager for SharePoint.
10 July Enhancements:
  • The design of the visualized tasks in the kanban board is changed to match the Windows 8 style. This means that the shadows and rounded corners are removed.
  • There are two task sizes for the kanban board. The bigger size is the default one, but for workgroups with many tasks we give an option to use smaller visualizations of the tasks, so that more tasks can be seen on the screen without scrolling. The smaller tasks has no "card pin".
  • Added a possibility to show the Priority value on the visualized tasks on the kanban board.
  • The kanban board has a dropdown for filtering of Priority.
Bug fix:
Handled a synchronization issue experienced by some users.

Reduced the time delay in updating the SharePoint list when a change has been made from Outlook in any task.
10 Jan Enhancement:
Now the Outlook version supports systems with Outlook 2013 64-bit + Windows 8.

Bug fix:
Handled the scripting error some users experienced.
2013
27 Nov Enhancements:
  • The performance of Kanban Task Manager has been enhanced, so that it works faster and smoother and the risk of Outlook hanging is minimized.
  • There is one single MSI for both 32-bit and 64-bit Outlook.
30 Sept
2012
Enhancements:
  • Kanban Task Manager now supports Office 2013.
  • The task colors of the Kanban Task Manager homepage are connected to either the responsible or the project. That way the extra step of setting color is avoided. There is an option in the settings form for this. All colors in the RGB range are supported.
  • The tasks in the Outlook Kanban board have a new design and look 3D, and the Edit and Delete buttons are displayed only when the task is in focus.
  • It is possible to add a new task directly by double clicking in the desired phase area. The selected phase will be displayed in the task dropdown for phase, If the project and responsible are already selected on the Kanban board before the double clicking in the phase area, both (project and responsible) will also be displayed in the corresponding dropdowns in the new task.
  • A Search feature is added in the Outlook Kanban board, to help users to search any task through the task subjects and bodies.
  • It is possible to add tasks from the ‘New Kanban Task Manager Task’ under the Home Tab > New Items ribbon button.
  • The speed of getting the latest changed items from SharePoint has been increased to ten times faster.
  • The settings are now stored in a text file in JSon string format, which is better than the earlier xml as the settings are loaded faster and easier.
  • Variable text color: when the background color of a task on the Kanban board is dark the text color is white, and when the color is light the text color becomes black.
  • At the automatic synchronization only changed items are synchronized, not the whole homepage, which gives a faster synchronization.
  • Auto-complete instead of dropdowns for many items. When the number of alternatives for project, phase or responsible is more than 100 a dropdown is not the best alternative for selection. Then the dropdowns are converted into buttons. A click opens a dialog with all the alternatives and a field of the auto-complete type.
  • A new column named "Sequence" is added in the Kanban Task Manager Phases table/list, to make it easy for users to change the order of phases through the database/SharePoint site.
  • In the Settings form it is now possible to edit any cell on a single click.
  • The new Kanban Task Manager uses Client Object Model to communicate with SharePoint. It is comparatively faster than webservices, that we used earlier.
  • Kanban Task Manager now supports multi-language for the SharePoint lists.
  • A loader image is used wherever needed and proper loading messages are given.
  • Projects and responsibles are now displayed in alphabetical order everywhere in the settings and the new task dropdown.
  • After installation or upgrade of Kanban Task Manager , the settings form will not appear by default when the database/SharePoint already has Projects, Phases and Responsibles values are filled out.
  • If there are changes like password change or change in database name, the old settings are automatically filled out in the Sharing Option form. This way the user does not need to fill out all details if only the password is changed or the connection is not set. Earlier the sharing option form showed blank fields and the user had to fill out all the entries again. Now the user only needs to update the changed value to make a new connection.
Other changes:
  • Removed items: Interop.VBIDE.dll and jQuery folder
  • In settings form for Projects, "Due Date" is replaced by "Completed Date".
  • In settings form for Phases, "Order" is replaced by "Sequence".
  • The task description is not shown in the Reports.

Bug fixes:
  • Sometimes Outlook hung while writing an email.
  • For a few users the Task ribbon and Email ribbon sometimes disappeared.
  • For MS Access and SQL server databases, if a user selected a new database in the Kanban Task Manager sharing option form and a database already existed, the old database was deleted and a new one created. Now Kanban Task Manager gives a message that the database already exists.
  • Sometimes the Project and Resposbile dropdowns in the Kanban Task Manager homepage moved from their positions and the Responsible dropdown came before the Project dropdown.
  • If phase names were more than 20 characters the phase did not appear on one line in the homepage. Now it is possible to have phase names as long as the task width.
  • A few users were getting problems when working with two task items open in new windows.
  • The Excel reports process should end when the reports are closed. This is now handled for all cases.
