SharePoint Kanban for SharePoint On Premises update 11/2019

Virto Kanban Board for SharePoint On-Premises was updated with a scroll for columns, interactive search feature, swimlanes sorting, a user mentioning in comments, image preview on task, and tickets cloning. 

Scroll for columns

Your work with Virto SharePoint Kanban columns is even more comfortable now. If a column contains many tasks, its length will be reduced and a scroll appears when you hover the cursor. It’s possible to scroll the tasks in each column up and down. You can also scroll the whole board using the scroll bar on the right or the mouse wheel with hovering between columns. This option can be disabled in board settings.

Interactive search

This new search control in the right upper corner allows you to show only tasks matching the entered task values (text, numbers, and symbols) that are displayed on current board cards.

Swimlanes sorting

You can sort swimlanes manually, in ascending or descending order by title.

User mentioning in comments

If a task requires someone’s attention, you can mention this user by entering @ sign and choosing the name from the search suggestions.

The selected person will receive a notification about the comment to the task, where he or she was mentioned. To enable this feature for board users, you need to activate relevant notifications in board settings.

Image preview on the task card

We’ve added an ability to show image preview on Kanban tasks and improved the field for images in the task edit form. It looks similar to the attachments field, where you can drag and drop pictures to attach them and view a task.

Comment value in notifications

You can include a new tag “Comment value” in any notification message about comments. The comment content will be displayed in the e-mail. This feature reduces the need to switch to the board to read a new comment.

‘Fill-in’ choices fields support

We added an ability to add choices for “allow to fill-in choices” fields.
When you have to add some new values to choice type fields, you usually leave the Virto Kanban interface and go to a SharePoint list to make changes. Sometimes these new choice values appear during the work process and require extra time to manage. We’ve added an option for end-users to add these values right on SharePoint Kanban Board!
The custom choices entering is available in the task edit form.
Note: Allow the ‘Fill-in’ choices feature must be enabled for the column.

Clone ticket

You can clone selected tickets using the drop-down in the tooltip. When you clone a ticket, it will be opened in a new ticket’s edit form that contains all field values from the cloned ticket. Attachments and images can’t be transferred to a clone ticket.

You can download the last version of SharePoint Kanban on our site and try its 30-days free trial.
