Outlook Kanban Task Manager For Lots Of Tasks

Kanban Task Manager for Outlook logotypeWe have released a minor update of Kanban Task Manager for Outlook to enhance the experience for users with a huge number of tasks. Thanks to our Support Lead, a customer with problems had help quickly, and all users will have a new version.

Faster Outlook startup
The update of Kanban Task Manager came after a subscriber complained that the earlier version slowed down the Outlook startup. The kalmstrom.com Support Lead, Senior Developer Jitu Patidar, found that this organization had a huge number of tasks on the virtual kanban board, and that was the reason for the sluggish Outlook start.

Jitu researched the problem and changed the Kanban Task Manager code so that Outlook now works fast again even for this customer with so many tasks. To avoid that other subscribers get the same issue, he wanted to release the new version for all.

For many users
Both the Outlook and the SharePoint versions of Kanban Task Manager are popular kalmstrom.com Solutions, and several of the subscribing organizations have many users. This is how we intend the solution to work, and soon after the first release  in 2012 we published a blog post on how we had prepared Kanban Task Manager for Outlook for use in big organizations. Therefore, it is  important to us to quickly correct any issues.
