Checklist, Time Logging and Default Values
in Updated Kanban Task Manager SharePoint Editions
Borgholm, Sweden, 1 November
kalmstrom.com Business Solutions is happy to announce the
release of a major update of the two
SharePoint editions of Kanban Task
Manager. Default values for several task fields
have been added, just as a possibility to use a checklist
and time logging to each task.
Sandboxed and add-in Kanban Task Manager visualizes project tasks as color
coded cards on a kanban board. The tasks can be filtered,
searched and shown in additional views, and they are dragged
and dropped between phases and lanes as work proceeds.
There are two SharePoint editions, a sandboxed solution
and an add-in/app. The
differences between the two edtions are small. Most
features work in the same way in both editions, but the
sandboxed solution supports SharePoint 2010 and gives some
additional possibilities. On the other hand, the add-in
is easier to install. The demo below shows the sandboxed
It is often convenient to give default values in the task
form, so that users have less selections to make. Earlier
only the Assigned To and the Priority fields had default
values ( the current users and Normal), but in the new versions
it is also possible to set default values for Project, Start
Date and Due Date.
The kalmstrom.com developers have also added an "Empty"
option, which is something that does not exist in standard
SharePoint list items. The default values are set by the
admin in the Kanban Task Manager Configuration page.
The new versions of Kanban Task Manager give a possibility
to use time logging for the tasks. If the feature is enabled,
each user who works with a task can enter how many minutes
was spent. The minutes are then automatically converted
into hours, and the time per task, responsible and phase
can be viewed in the Kanban Task Manager statistics.
Sometimes users want to divide their tasks into several
actions to be taken and check these "to do" as they are
completed. The new Kanban Task Manager gives this
possibility, and it is enabled by default in the settings.
kalmstrom.com Business Solutions offers a trial period of
30 days for both SharePoint editions of Kanban Task Manager.
There is a possibility to create Example data, so the evaluation
can be quick and smooth.
During the evaluation the kalmstrom.com team offers full
support, just as support and upgrades are included for organizations
that subscribe to Kanban Task Manager.
