SharePoint Kanban for SharePoint On Premises. Major Update 5/2019

Virto SharePoint Kanban for SharePoint 2013, 2016, and 2019 was updated with upgraded conditions, “Field is modified” notification trigger, notifications by user role, suggested cards style rules, and more fields for task title.

Upgraded conditions

We’ve enhanced SharePoint Kanban conditions and used 2 possible operators to combine several filters. In other words, you can create a complex multi-conditional view with and/or operators included.


“Field is modified” notification trigger

We’ve added new condition type for Kanban notifications: “is modified”. Now, you can track any changes of selected fields.


Notifications by role

You can add notification receivers by role. It is possible to select not only e-mails, but user fields from the list as well.


Notifications about comments 

There are 3 notification examples: new comments to task for assignee, task creator, and a user who left a comment.

You can disactivate these SharePoint Kanban notifications or enhance them with additional information (use reset button to apply new notification form).

It is possible to allow users unsubscribe from these alerts using checkbox “Users can unsubscribe from comments in particular tickets”. In this case, users can enter their email in “Task Watchers” pop-up to unsubscribe from current task notifications.


Suggested cards style rules

We’ve added 4 suggested style rules already customized. You can activate these style rules (use enable/disable red button next to the style rule name) or enhance them with additional information (use red reset button to apply new rule). Please check if default style rules match your list fields.

And another style rules feature is the ability to use “transparent” color, this helps create several distinct style rules with independent border / body / font colors (in the previous version the upper style rule prioritized other color conditions).


3 fields for task title

Now, you can use several fields displayed as Task title.


Enhanced WIP limit

We’ve modified Work-In-Progress limits.

If WIP limit is exceed, the count in the bottom of the column is highlighted. “Enable WIP restrictions” checkbox blocks adding new tasks in the column with exceeded WIP-limit.

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