We are back again with a few, but significant updates to SwiftKanban. Here’s a quick glimpse of what has been added and changed in this version, v2.3 :-
Kanban Board Enhancements
Board Lane Re-sizing
Filter Board By Due Date
Card Auto-Assignment Policy
You can now change the ‘Card Type’ of a card and carryover all its details to the converted card, using the new ‘Convert Card’ option that is now available for the cards.
View Linked Card
You can now navigate to ‘Linked Cards’ view from th Kanban board using the newly added ‘Linked Card’ link under ‘Options’ menu. The user interface for linking cards has been improved as well and one can simply click on the ‘Search and Link Cards’ icon and enter card id + Enter key and select a card that needs to be linked. An interface to configure ‘Card Type Link’ definition has been added as well, that lets you control which card types can be linked together.
Edit Card Comments
You can now ‘Edit’ the comments added by you, to make any required corrections. The edited comment would be shown with the new timestamp when comment edited.
Card Layout Improvements
We have made following improvements in the card layout based on the feedback from all the users :-
- The Card Icons are not shown by default and show up only when you mouse-over on the card, enhancing the default visual appearance of the cards.
- Two new attributes, ‘% Completion’ and ‘To-Do Estimate’ have be added on the Card Carousel, providing you quick status for the same on board.
- When no users are assigned to the card, no avatar image would be shown. This should differentiate the ‘Unassigned’ cards from the cards where a user has not put any avatar image.
Card Hierarchy Enhancements
Card Type Link Definition
Card Hierarchy Across Projects
You can now use Parent-Child links across projects i.e. add a child card to another project/ board. This could be very useful in requirement decomposition that could be executed by different teams, across different board. The usability for the parent-child definition view has been enhancement as well.
