And let’s learn more about new features for end-users!


SharePoint Kanban Board labels are actually color-coded tags on kanban cards.


Label values are taken from a custom multichoice column added to your Kanban list created by default. You can add this column for existing lists as well.

Then you have to select this column in Kanban Settings > Cards Setup > Labels.

You can also allow users with Edit permission (selected in Kanban Settings > Advanced Setup > Permissions) to create and edit labels (values from a multichoice column). You have to add the Labels column to the Kanban card edit form to manage values and colors.

Charts data

There is a new ability to display in charts the values of number type fields. Now, you can choose which statistics to display in this chart view.

We’ve also added the “Points” column to all Kanban lists, which were created when you use the “add quick boards” feature. A point (story point) is an agile metric used to estimate the difficulty level of a task. This way, you can measure the workload and efforts of users required to implement tasks.

Task and board history

The task and board change history were some of the most sought-after features for Virto SharePoint Kanban Board users. Now, you can track the task and board history to see all changes.

Note: the Item Version History option must be enabled in list versioning settings.
