SwiftKanban now in its release version 2.0.1, extensively supports Scrum processes with an integrated set of Scrum features and metrics- all set to make an evolutionary change to your processes. In this version, we focused on improving its usability and implementing our users’ feedback.

Here’s a quick glimpse of what has been added and changed in v2.0.1:

Kanban Board
Policy Communication: The description that you add to any card type acts as an explicit policy that can guide the usage of various card types. Team members can now view the policy by just hovering on the respective ‘Card Type’ label in the ‘Legend’ menu.

Search List Enhanced: Changing the Card Owner is now made more intuitive. The Search list now shows the selected members at the top, making it easier to un-select current owners for any re-assignment or adding another member on the same card.

Cards
Permanent URL for Cards and Kanban Board: You can now bookmark your SwiftKanban board or any card in your favorite browser to revisit directly. SwiftKanban board and cards now come with permanent URLs that can help you to access your board or card quickly and share/enter these links in any external application, making cross-referencing easily possible.

More Accurate Metrics: Average Lead/Cycle time metrics have been improved to now show the average times for cards that are archived within a selected date range. This could help tremendously in analyzing the recent performance of the team against the previous duration or analyzing the outcome of any process change.

Printing Cards to PDF (Beta)
You can now print and download your SwiftKanban cards in a PDF file for archival, or use it as an attachment in any external system. The printed card contains all the card details, including To-dos, Comments, and Activity Log.

You can check out the SwiftKanban Release page for more information. We thank all our users who have motivated us and provided their valuable feedback to bring out the above-mentioned features.
