visualize and co-operate on projects and tasks in SharePoint
Task Manager visualizes tasks and projects on a kanban
board in SharePoint. When managers and team members get
such a picture of the work process, they can quickly reveal
bottlenecks and blockers. Less time is spent on trying to
sort out how projects are coming along, because everything
is visible on the board.
When you open Kanban Task Manager in SharePoint,
you can see the workgroup's different tasks visualized as
color coded cards on a kanban board. New tasks are created
with a click directly from the board, and the tasks can
be dragged between the board's phases (and lanes) as the
Kanban Task Manager uses as much standard SharePoint
features as possible, so it is easy to understand and use.
Tasks for multiple projects can be displayed on one kanban

"Kanban" refers to a way of visualizing work, to
make it flow and reduce waste of time.
The traditional wooden kanban board uses paper cards that tell what and how much should be produced and when it should be done.
When managers get such a visual overview of the work process and status, they can quickly reveal bottlenecks and blockers. Less time is spent on trying to sort out how projects are coming along, because everything is visible on the kanban board.
By adding the kanban board to SharePoint, we can
give it many more features.
