Kanban E-mail Manager for Outlook released

Kanban E-mail Manager for Outlook logotype Today, I am happy to announce the release of a new kalmstrom.com product: Kanban E-mail Manager for Outlook. This add-in is intended to help single users visualize and work with e-mails on a kanban board.

Kanban View
We have earlier developed another Outlook add-in, Kanban Task Manager Single which visualizes Outlook tasks on a virtual kanban board and converts e-mails into tasks. Therefore, it was not a big step to also create a kanban board for e-mails inside Outlook.

Show Kanban View button logotype Kanban E-mail Manager adds a "Show Kanban View" button in the Outlook ribbon. Select any Outlook e-mail folder and click on the button, and the e-mails in that folder are visualized as cards on a kanban board.


Main features
Kanban E-mail Manager gives the possibility to organize the e-mails in different phases. By default, the phases are called Unhandled, In Progress, Deferred and Handled. You can drag and drop the e-mail cards between these phases as your work with the e-mail proceeds.

You may also create new e-mails or reply to e-mails from the kanban board.

Another main feature of Kanban E-mail Manager is that you can filter and search the e-mails based on category, sender, priority/priorities or any word or phrase.

Outlook built-in categories
Once you have installed Kanban E-mail Manager, it will automatically take the Outlook built-in categories and display the e-mails with the category colors on the kanban board. The category for any e-mail can be set both from the kanban view and from the Outlook e-mail view.

Work efficiently with e-mails and analyze your work with an Excel report
Checklist icon Kanban E-mail Manager has other features, like Checklist and Time Logging. To work smoothly with a complex e-mail, you can break the work into small tasks by adding a checklist to the e-mail card.

Time Logging icon The Time Logging option helps you keep track of the time you have invested in an e-mail. When you record the minutes worked on e-mails, you can analyze the time spent in the Kanban E-mail Manager Excel reports.

Kanban E-mail Manager also generates several other Excel reports, where you can study statistics on the work done. Each time you generate a report the most updated data is included.
