  • Support for SharePoint 2013.
  • 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 This is useful for finished projects and responsibles that are no longer active in the workgroup.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 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 will be removed.
  • Added a possibility to change the behavior of the Delete icon (X) on the visualized tasks from a delete feature into a close feature.

    When a phase for this icon is specified in the Kanban Task Manager settings, the icon will not delete tasks but instead move them to the specified phase and hide them from Outlook/SharePoint. They will still be present in the database. The Delete icon is changed into a Closed icon.
  •  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 one more special Kanban Task Manager SharePoint list with customizable caption. Here each organization can define their own component to add to the tasks. This list is not used by default but is created when a name is added in the Extra field in the Configuration page.

    When a name is added, each task will get one more dropdown field where the values in the custom list 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 custom field.
  • Added a possibility to show the Priority value on the visualized tasks on the kanban board.
