Kanban Task Manager Support For Project Tasks Lists

Kanban Task Manager for SharePoint logotypeThis week Kanban Task Manager for SharePoint has been updated to support lists that build on the SharePoint 2010 Project Tasks template.

Drag and drop color coded task cards
In Kanban Task Manager tasks are visualized on a kanban board, where tasks can be dragged and dropped between phases and lanes as work proceeds. If you have a touch screen you can also move the tasks with a finger.

Use any task list
Kanban Task Manager has a custom tasks list that is used by default, but it is easy to switch to another list. All lists that build on the SharePoint Tasks template can be used with Kanban Task Manager.

SharePoint 2010 has a list template called Project Tasks, and from now Kanban Task Manager supports lists built on that template too. We had a request for this support from a subscriber, and as many organizations still use SharePoint 2010 we wanted to meet it.



The Gantt view
In SharePoint 2013 there is no Project Tasks list template. Instead the regular Tasks template has a Gantt view, which was supported by Kanban Task Manager also before this week's update.

Sandboxed and Add-in
Kanban Task Manager comes in two SharePoint versions: a sandboxed solution and an Add-in. Only the sandboxed solution supports SharePoint 2010 and thus the Project Tasks list template. Both versions can be used with SharePoint on-premise as well as SharePoint Online.

Upgrade
