New Design and Easier Configuration
in Updated Kanban Task Manager for Outlook
Borgholm, Sweden, 24
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
"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
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
These views give managers good overviews of task
distribution over time and among projects and staff.

Task Manager. During the evaluation the kalmstrom.com
team gives full support, just as support and upgrades
