Borgholm, Sweden, 24 May 2017

kalmstrom.com Business Solutions is happy to announce the release of a major update of the Outlook workgroup edition of Kanban Task Manager. Version 6 has a totally new design, and the configuration is now very easy to perform. At the same time, the developer team has managed to keep the good features from earlier versions.

New kanban board
Kanban Task Manager visualizes Outlook tasks as color coded cards on a kanban board with phases and lanes. The design of the kanban board is now changed to give room for more phases and lanes on the screen. The cards are smaller, but important information like subject, due date, responsible and priority is still clearly visible on each card.

The kalmstrom.com team has also added two panes with additional possibilities. Right click on a card to open the right pane and read the task description.

Click on the search icon to open the left pane, which gives a possibility to filter the tasks by one or several projects and/or assignees and/or priorities.

"We have seen that customers often have many task cards on their kanban boards, and with the new design they can see more of them without scrolling", says Peter Kalmström, CEO and Systems Designer at kalmstrom.com Business Solutions.

Manager Views
The visualized tasks can be studied in more ways, as there are various other views in addition to the default kanban board. Tasks can be seen by month or year, or on a timeline grouped by project or assignee. The projects may also be visualised as pie charts, where each slice of the pie represents a phase.

These views give managers good overviews of task distribution over time and among projects and staff.


kalmstrom.com Business Solutions offers a trial period of 30 days for the full version of Kanban Task Manager. During the evaluation the kalmstrom.com team gives full support, just as support and upgrades are included for organizations that subscribe to Kanban Task Manager.

The kalmstrom.com team
Peter Kalmström and his team develop and market add-ons for Microsoft Outlook and SharePoint under the brand name kalmstrom.com Business Solutions. The company behind the brand is the family owned Kalmstrom Enterprises AB, a Swedish business with customers all over the world.

The common theme for the kalmstrom.com applications is that they add functionality on top of the Microsoft products they build on.
