7 Habits View and Hours Open
in Updated Kanban Task Manager SharePoint Editions
Borgholm, Sweden, 14 March
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
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
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
"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.
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.
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
kalmstrom.com Business Solutions offers a trial period of
30 days for both SharePoint editions of Kanban Task Manager.
There is a possibility to create Example data, so the evaluation
can be quick and smooth.
During the evaluation the kalmstrom.com team offers full
support, just as support and upgrades are included for organizations
that subscribe to Kanban Task Manager.
