kalmstrom.com Business Solutions has released a new version of Kanban Task Manager Single, the Outlook add-in for project and task management. This kanban style solution visualizes and keeps track of tasks and projects on a kanban board that is integrated in Outlook. It is suitable for anyone who prefers organizing work or hobbies in Outlook instead of using cards or pieces of paper.

New kanban board design
"In our contacts with Kanban Task Manager users, we have understood that many of them would benefit from a design that shows more task cards on the screen without scrolling", says Peter Kalmström, CEO and Systems Designer. "Therefore, version 6 of Kanban Task Manager has a totally new design of the kanban board.

Now the cards are smaller, but they still give the necessary task information. Panes on the sides contain filter options, search and task details. These panes are only visible when they are needed. The new design gives room to see more task cards without scrolling, but to see details users can zoom in with the Ctrl and plus keys."

In addition to the kanban board, version 6 of Kanban Task Manager Single has several other views. Tasks can be seen by month or by year, and they can also be grouped by month and project.

The Project pie view shows the projects as colored pie charts, where each slice is a phrase.

"I think the new Kanban Task Manager views will be popular", says kalmstrom.com Senior Developer Jitendra Patidar, responsible for the development of Kanban Task Manager Single. "The tasks are color coded by project in the Month view, just like they are in on the kanban board."

More efficient task handling
Here are some other features that enhance Kanban Task Manager Single:

  • Create tasks from e-mails by pressing a button in the Outlook mail view or in the open e-mail.
  • Use swim lanes to group the tasks on the kanban board.
  • Drag and drop tasks within or between phases and lanes, or use Ctrl + the arrow keys or a finger.
  • Responsive Web Design makes the kanban board adapt to all kinds of screens.

Feature-rich siblings
Kanban Task Manager comes in three more editions, all intended for workgroups. When creating the single edition the kalmstrom.com developers have been able to use much of the code from the workgroup editions, and therefore Kanban Task Manager Single is more advanced than most other single kanban board solutions.

A subscription to Kanban Task Manager Single includes free upgrades, so users will benefit when the single edition continues to grow with the workgroup editions.

"It would not have been financially vindicable to develop such an advanced single version of Kanban Task Manager if we hadn't already had the workgroup editions", says Peter Kalmström. "We cannot expect single users to bear the costs for such an extensive development undertaking. However, by using parts from the workgroup editions we can give single users a good product at a reasonable subscription fee."

Free trial
kalmstrom.com Business Solutions offers a trial period of 30 days for the full version of Kanban Task Manager Single. During the evaluation the kalmstrom.com team gives full support, just as support is included when you subscribe to Kanban Task Manager.
