This release introduces several enhancements and new features.

Here are the highlights of SwiftKanban version 3.5.15:

Enhanced Board Activity Feature

We have enhanced the Board Activity feature in terms of defining period and searching information on the Board Log pop-up page.
Previously, you had to use a separate pop-up for defining period before you could access the Board Activity Log. Now, you can perform the same action inside the Board Activity Log itself.
The newly added search field lets you search information like Card ID, Title, and Owner, and highlight them on the cards displayed on the Board Activity Log.  Moreover, the corresponding cards are also made prominent on the Kanban board, while rest of the cards on the same board are grayed out.
 

Managing Attachments in the Card

We have introduced following exciting features for effectively managing your attachments in the card:
  • You can attach multiple files (maximum up to 10) simultaneously. Alternatively, you can also drag and drop them to the attachment table.
  • You can take a screen print and copy it directly into the Description field.
  • On clicking any attached image file, it displays the image in the full view. So, you have the flexibility of viewing an image file without downloading it. Alternatively, that full view also has download icon to download that image into your hard drive. Moreover, if you have more than one image files attached, then the view mode will display them in succession with left and right arrow icons to move forward or backward.
  • You can download all the attached files at one go into the ZIP folder. Alternatively, you can download individual file by clicking the Download icon under the Action column.

 

Enhanced Settings for Analytics

We have enhanced few Analytics by expanding its filtering options and modifying the calculation criteria so that you can plot charts for Cycle Time, Throughput, and Flow Efficiency according to your wide-ranging  requirements:
  • You can now select particular or all smart lanes inside your Kanban board and plot chart accordingly. This smart lane selection will help you narrow or expand your filtering options while plotting chart.

 

Enhanced Calculation Formula for Analytics

For Cycle Time, Throughput, and Flow Efficiency, the time period is usually calculated based on the time the card entered into any lane in between the Start lane and the End Lane to the time it was moved out of the End lane. But, if the End lane is tagged as Done lane type, then the cycle time is calculated till the card’s entry into the end lane, not based on its exit from the end lane.
If you select all or multiple smart lanes for plotting the chart, then the Cycle time, Throughput, and Flow Efficiency are calculated based on the archived cards and any cards that enter into the Done lane type or move beyond Done lane type.
 

Default Filter Option in All List Pages

All listing pages have now been enabled with default filter box. You can use this filter box placed below the column header to narrow search results.
Note: Some of the columns like Priority, Card Owner in the Card Listing still have the button which you need to click to select the filtering option from the drop-down box.

Session Timeout Increased

Based on many of your requests, we have increased the session timeout from 2 hours to 12 hours.
Enjoy using SwiftKanban uninterruptedly!
