Space and Speed with Kanban Task Manager Single
Borgholm, Sweden, 22
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
Use swim lanes to group the tasks on the
Drag and drop tasks within or between phases
and lanes, or use Ctrl + the arrow keys or a
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
A subscription to Kanban Task Manager Single
includes free upgrades, so users will benefit when
the single edition continues to grow with the workgroup
"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."
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
