Easy Setup Of Multiple SharePoint Kanban Boards

Kanban Task Manager for SharePoint logotypeMany subscribers use multiple installations of Kanban Task Manager for SharePoint, and we already offer them a PowerShell script to facilitate the setup. Now we will soon be able to give a script that helps with the configuration also.

Tasks Overview
Kanban Task Manager visualizes SharePoint tasks as color coded cards on a kanban board with phases and lanes, and with multiple installations managers can easily move between the boards and have an overview over how work proceeds in different projects or for different teams.

Customer request
We are currently setting up Kanban Task Manager for SharePoint on multiple sites for a new Premium subscriber. This customer wants all installations to have the same basic configuration, so we have created a PowerShell script that sets default values for each site's phases, lanes, projects and colors.

The PowerShell script we use for this automated configuration can be used for both Kanban Task Manager SharePoint editions: the sandboxed solution and the add-in.

Search all tasks
Using the configuration script is much quicker than configuring each installation manually, but it also gives another advantage: we can create the content type in the Content Type Hub instead of in each site collection. This makes it possible to search all tasks in Kanban Task Manager tasks lists across the whole organization.

Free of charge
Premium Subscription icon Kanban Task Manager Medium and Premium subscribers may request the installation script without any extra costs, and soon we will give them the configuration script too. Minimum subscribers normally have just a few installations, so the scripts are not included in that subscription level.

Please contact us if you are interested in the configuration script, and we will e-mail you as soon as it has been properly tested and is ready for distribution.
