Office 365 Kanban Board app with extended swimlanes features

March 22, 2018

The newest update of Virto Office 365 Kanban app involves the changed behavior of dynamic swimlanes.

If you enable checkbox “Dynamic swimlanes”, the values are taken from the list without ability to customize each swimlane. This feature may be useful, if the swimlanes set of your source list is large and/or changes often. In this case, you don’t have to adjust the swimlanes settings in Kanban Board over and over, and the swimlanes will be added or deleted automatically. If you always use a concrete set of swimlanes for this board, you may disable this option and customize the swimlanes more flexible.

In the new update, we have extended dynamic swimlanes feature. There is an ability to add automatically a great number of swimlanes to Kanban Board and hide empty swimlanes.


If you tick the “Dynamic swimlanes” checkbox in SharePoint Kanban app settings, there are displayed two more options. When you have enabled dynamic swimlanes in a list containing a large number of values used for swimlanes, you can hide empty lanes and enable paging (in this case, you will have 20 swimlanes on each page).
