Experience Technology and Simplicity at its Best!
Yes, SwiftKanban v3.0 is here! This latest version brings you numerous innovations that we are sure you’ll enjoy – right from a revamped UI, enhanced Usability, real-time Collaboration, and updated Analytics!
Here’s a quick overview of SwiftKanban 3.0 to get you started:-
Revamped Contemporary User Interface!
The new UI has a modern look and feel, a more pleasing combination of colors and more color theme choices for the user – with many more to follow!
Visual Indicators, Easier on the Eye!
Notifications such as WIP Limit Violations and Blocked card are easier on the eye, yet prominent!
Improved Readability of Cards!
The card type is now indicated by the lower border color for greater board visual and card readability.
Enhanced Hierarchy feature for easier Portfolio/ Enterprise Kanban!
The new Hierarchy icon now appears right on the cards that belong to a hierarchy or that are linked to other cards. Click on it to directly go to the Linked Card/ Hierarchy View!
Set up and manage flexible multi-board hierarchies for a variety of portfolio, program and multi-team scenarios!
More space for your Board!
New Auto-hide toolbar on the left eliminates space waste on the top and makes more of the board visible!
All screen-specific menus of SwiftKanban are now shifted to the tool bar for a consistent user experience.
Quick Access and Reduced Clicks!
All top Menu links, Widgets, and Search bar collapsed into single row for easier access and better use of space!
Three Levels of board Zoom!
Three zoom levels to choose for viewing more cards or the required level of card details!
New ‘Aging’ View – Catch where the action is!
Click on the ‘Aging’ option to see which cards have not been updated recently and which cards have. The ‘older’ the card updates, the more faded it will appear!
Legend Optimized to highlight Cards on Board

Manage your Backlog Visually on the Backlog Board!

Enhanced Analytics: Forecasting Capability of the CFD
As we focus on providing greater insight to users, we felt it was more appropriate to rename this module “Analytics”. Stay tuned as we continue to improve the insights you can get into your projects!
Use the “Show Prediction” flag to forecast the required throughput to complete backlog items based on the current progress.
Enhanced Analytics: Greater Precision with Lane Selection
Select the Start and/ or End Lanes to choose exactly the stages for which you want to measure Lead Time/ Cycle Time and other metrics!
Collaborate with your team in Real-time with Board chat!
Chat with your team-mates within SwiftKanban! And if needed, capture the discussion as “Notes” at the card or board level!
Chat with other Card Owners – individually and as a group!
The Card and the Board Chat features are in Beta. We invite you to use them and give us your suggestions for enhancements!
Stay in Sync with your Team Members at all times!
SwiftKanban automatically refreshes the board and highlights card updates by your team-mates!
