Virto Kanban Board Pro: new style, mobile version and dark theme

With this update, Kanban Board Pro for Office 365 and Microsoft Teams has a new interface. Take a look at the new style, dark theme for Teams, and mobile version.

Introduction

VirtoSoftware is going to release the new update for Virto Kanban Board Pro App for Office 265 and Microsoft Teams. We have changed the design and improved Kanban usability for mobile users. Now you can work with a full-featured Kanban Board for mobile devices. The application interface is fully adapted to mobile now.

Virto Kanban Board Pro integrates perfectly with Microsoft Teams. You can add the app to a Teams channel as a separate tab. We have improved Kanban for Teams: now, you can apply a dark theme to the Kanban Board added to your Teams.

And last, we have changed the authorization process. You may receive two authorization requests while installing or configuring the Kanban app. Please, see our recommendations in the “Kanban App Pro Update: New Authorization Process” post of VirtoSoftware News.

Now let us return to the dark theme and unpack this new Kanban feature for the app users.

Why use the dark theme?

For several reasons, using a light theme (dark text on a light background) can harm users’ eyes. For example, a bright screen makes your eyes focus harder while working at a dark time of the day. This may cause eye strain, or you will get tired faster. 

Dark themes reduce the luminance of a screen. They are more adjusted to dark light conditions, saving battery power.

It is your choice which theme to use, but we provide both options for Kanban Board users working with Teams.

How does it look in Virto Kanban for Teams?

Open Teams settings (right-click on the Teams icon in the tray) and turn on the dark theme mode.

Now open the Teams channel where you have added the Virto Kanban Board as a separate tab. Or find how you can do this in the “How to Install Virto Kanban Board for Microsoft Teams” blog post.

The Virto Kanban Board will also become dark.

Note: if the board is somehow not synchronized to the Teams to mode, open the board settings  (Advanced Setup) and make sure you have the checkbox “Use Microsoft Teams theme” chosen.
