New version of Kanban Task Manager for Outlook Workgroup Edition

Kanban Task Manager for Outlook logotype We have successfully released version 7 of the Kanban Task Manager for Outlook Workgroup edition. Among the new features we can find more views (in addition to the kanban board), a checklist option, time logging and default values. From version 7, the Workgroup edition also has automatic upgrades.

Outlook Add-in
The Workgroup edition of Kanban Task Manager for Outlook is an Outlook add-in that adds a kanban board to Outlook. It is intended for organizations and teams who cooperate on tasks and projects. Data and settings are shared via a database or a SharePoint site.


With Kanban Task Manager, the team members can manage their tasks together on a shared kanban board. New tasks are easily created and tagged with important info selected from dropdowns. E-mails can be converted into tasks with a ‘Convert’ button, so the team members can generate tasks for any e-mails related to a project. The task will be visible to all users who have Kanban Task Manager for Outlook installed.

Default Values
To make the task creation even quicker, the new version of Kanban Task Manager gives default values for some of the parameters that the tasks are tagged with. These values can of course be changed in the settings, and there is also an option to not use default values at all.

Simplifying the work
The kalmstrom.com developers have added a checklist feature to version 7 of Kanban Task Manager, to help users work more efficiently with tasks. When a task is complicated, users can make sure they don’t miss anything by adding a checklist to the task. The checklist can be managed from a details pane on the kanban board.

Supervise and control
The new version of Kanban Task Manager, gives more options for managers to control how the work with projects and tasks is proceeding. There are two new views, Daily Trend and Day Report, and we have also added a time logging feature.

When users register how much time they spend on a task, managers will have a good overview of the work process. Each time a team member works on a task, he/she can enter the time in minutes in the details pane. The total time will be automatically converted into hours, and the hours per task, phase and project can be studied in the Kanban Task Manager Excel reports.
