Borgholm, Sweden, 14 March 2019

kalmstrom.com Business Solutions is happy to announce an update of the two Kanban Task Manager SharePoint editions. A new task view has been added, just as a possibility to let the product calculate Hours Open for each task.

"We hope that the new features will help subscribers to work even more efficiently with projects and tasks"' says Peter Kalmström, CEO and Systems Designer and the one who created the first prototype of the 7 Habits view.

Sandboxed and add-in
Kanban Task Manager visualizes tasks as color coded cards on a kanban board. The tasks can be filtered, searched and shown in many additional views, and they are dragged between phases and lanes as the work proceeds.

There are two SharePoint editions of Kanban Task Manager, a sandboxed solution and an add-in/app. The differences between the two editions are small. Most features work in the same way in both editions, but the sandboxed solution gives some additional possibilities. On the other hand, the add-in is easier to install. The demo below shows the sandboxed solution.



7 Habits view
In addition to the kanban board, Kanban Task Manager has several other views that let users visualize and work with the tasks in different ways. The latest version has a 7 Habits view, where all open tasks are divided into four quadrants according to the Eisenhower "Urgent-Important" Matrix. The name of this view comes from the renowned book "7 Habits of Highly Effective People" by Stephen Covey.

The kalmstrom.com developers have use the Priority value as the importance parameter and the Due date as the urgency parameter, and these parameter are changed automatically when tasks are moved between the quadrants. The tasks in the upper left quadrant has high priority and are due today.

Hours Open
The new Kanban Task Manager gives a possibility to let the product calculate how many hours a task has been open. This information can be seen in the task and in the Excel reports generated by Kanban Task Manager. Only the organization's work hours are included in the calculation.

Copy task
The updated versions of Kanban Task Manager gives a possibility to copy task, a good option when there is already an existing task similar to the new one you want to create.
