Checklist and Time Logging in Kanban Task Manager
Borgholm, Sweden, 27
kalmstrom.com Business Solutions has released a
new version of
Kanban Task Manager Single. This kanban
style Outlook add-in helps users visualize and keep
track of tasks and projects on a kanban board in
Outlook. It is suitable for anyone who prefers organizing
work or hobbies in Outlook instead of using cards
or pieces of paper.
Feature-rich siblings Kanban Task Manager comes in three more editions,
all intended for workgroups. "A single edition cannot
alone bear the development costs of all features
in Kanban Task Manager Single, explains Peter
Kalmström, kalmstrom.com CEO and Systems Designer.
But as the single edition of Kanban Task Manager
makes use of code from the workgroup editions, we
have been able to give Kanban Task Manager Single
more advanced features than other kanban board solutions
intended for one user. By using parts from the workgroup
editions we can give single users a good product
at a reasonable subscription fee."
Checklist and Time Logging
Version 7 of Kanban Task Manager Single gives
two new possibilities: to create checklists for
tasks and to log time spent on tasks. The time logging
is of course especially interesting for everyone
who charge for the tasks they perform.
Checklists are helpful for tasks that are complicated
and include several steps. When a checklist is created
for a task, the task card on the kanban board shows
how many of the steps that have been completed.
In addition to the kanban board, Kanban Task
Manager Single has several views that lets users
study and work with tasks from different angles.
Tasks can be seen by month or by year, and they
can also be grouped by project.
In version 7, the kalmstrom.com developers have
added two more views. The Daily Trend is a line
chart over the latest 30 days, that shows how many
tasks are open, new and closed each day. The Day
Report shows task activities for a specified day.

Task Manager Single:
