We hope you and your loved ones are staying safe and healthy during these unprecedented times. We’re happy to inform you that the development of SwiftKanban has not dropped pace. In this release, we have introduced a new way to gather work requests from the end-users. Using the External Work Requests feature you can create a customized Work request form and embed that in a website for your end-users to raise any type of work request.
Moreover, we have also introduced a new Admin Policy related to Board deletion, enhanced the TeamMemberService REST API and copy the swimlane feature. Read on to know more about them.
Collecting Work Requests from the External Source
With our new External Work Requests module, collecting information from your users is now quick, and easy. You no longer have to rely on the traditional way of collecting work requests by using other tools and integrating them with our system to get the card created. Now, you can create a customized form using External Work Requests and embed that form on your website. These forms can be accessed through clickable triggers (links) that are visible on your website. Users can raise their work requests by filling and then submitting these forms. Upon submission, a card gets created in the mapped Board and an email notification is sent to the user for future reference. Read more about it here.
Note: This is a licensed feature. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to know how to avail it.
Introducing New Admin Policy on Board Deletion
To offer you greater control on the Board deletion, we have introduced a new Admin policy, “Allow Deletion of Board To Admin Only” which you can enable to allow Board deletion by Admin only.
Moreover, to prevent any accidental deletion of the Board, we have removed the Board deletion facility from both My Boards and All Account Boards page and kept it available on the Board Profile page only.
Enhancing TeamMemberService REST API
Earlier using the getBoardWiseTeamMembers REST API under TeamMemberService, even though the admin users have access to all the boards they could only fetch the team member details of the boards in which they were invited.
Now we have enhanced the REST API by adding a new parameter Other-Boards, using which the admin can set if the REST API should fetch Board and team member details from all the boards or only the same details of those Boards in which the admin user is invited.

Copying Column Colors in New Swimlane
Now, while copying an existing swimlane any color of its columns will also get copied to the newly created swimlane.
