Virto Kanban Board App Update 09/2016

The Virto Kanban Board app for SharePoint Online became even better with a major update. We added several awesome features and slightly changed the board view for expanded swimlane functionality.

Now any swimlane is collapsed by default if it does not contain any tasks. Also, you can adjust Kanban to automatically collapse all selected swimlanes when you are opening your Kanban Board.

The new total option for swimlanes is intended to count the amount of tasks in chosen columns of a swimlane. You can check the required columns that will be used to calculate the total tasks amount in this swimlane.

In the following example the total count of tasks for “Low” swimlane is 5. The column “Not started” was not included in calculation.

Another feature allows you to replace Kanban edit form with default SharePoint form while using Virto Kanban as app part.

A new option of Task title field customization was added. It is not necessarily to select task name field for Kanban task title, you can choose any other field to display it on your Virto Kanban Board card!

In this example, the Title field of item and Title field that was chosen for displaying on task body have the same list field.

In this example, the Title field of item is an actual task name. And the Title field for displaying on task body contains the value from column “Project”.
