Kanban Task Manager

visualize and co-operate on projects and tasks in SharePoint

Kanban Task Manager for SharePoint iconKanban Task Manager visualizes tasks and projects on a kanban board in SharePoint. When managers and team members get such a picture of the work process, they can quickly reveal bottlenecks and blockers. Less time is spent on trying to sort out how projects are coming along, because everything is visible on the board.

When you open Kanban Task Manager in SharePoint, you can see the workgroup's different tasks visualized as color coded cards on a kanban board. New tasks are created with a click directly from the board, and the tasks can be dragged between the board's phases (and lanes) as the work proceeds.

Kanban Task Manager uses as much standard SharePoint features as possible, so it is easy to understand and use. Tasks for multiple projects can be displayed on one kanban board.

Kanban Task Manager comes in three editions: Client-side web part, Sandboxed Solution and PowerShell script. (In the demo below, an add-in edition is mentioned. We have stopped supporting that edition, as we cannot recommend it. The division between a host web and an app web makes it unstable.)

The editions have the same features and version number, but they are installed in different ways. All editions are included in the subscription, and they can be used and combined freely within the subscribing organization.


  • Filter tasks by priority, project and responsible and, if enabled, also by a custom field. Users can bookmark the filtered view and share its URL with other users who have access to the same Kanban Task Manager installation.
  • Search of both subjects and body texts of the tasks.
  • Switch Tasks list to be displayed on the kanban board.
  • Create task checklists.
  • Graphic indicators on the kanban cards: high and low priority, overdue and % completed.
  • Time logging for each task.
  • Create a custom parameter that is added to tasks, filters and views.
  • More views in addition to the kanban board:
    • Month, an overview of open tasks
    • Timeline, tasks grouped by Project, Assigned, Lane or a custom parameter if that is used
    • 7 Habits, tasks grouped by importance and urgency
    • Grid, all information about all tasks
    • Burndown, how tasks are managed over the last 30 days
    • Donuts, tasks in each phase, grouped by Assigned, Project, Lane or custom parameter
    • My Tasks, analytics of today’s work
    • Multiboard, a manager overview of multiple kanban boards.
  • Set WIP limits for phases and lanes, to give a warning when the predefined number of tasks is exceeded.
  • Set number of columns for each phase, to optimize the use of Statistics iconscreen space.
  • Generate Statistics reports and study tasks and projects in Excel.
