Office 365 Kanban has updated board view with collapsed swimlanes

September 18, 2016

We have made Virto Office 365 Kanban even better and added several awesome features. The board view slightly changed due to expanded swimlanes functionality.

Now you automatically collapse all chosen swimlanes when you opening your Kanban Board. Also, any swimlane is collapsed by default if it does not contain any tasks.

Total option for swimlanes allows you to count the number of tasks in chosen columns of a swimlane. You can check the required column that will be used to calculate the total amount of swimlane`s tasks.

In the following example the total count of tasks for “Normal” swimlane is 5. The column “Not started” was not included in calculation.

Among other features is the ability to replace Kanban edit form with default SharePoint form while using Virto Kanban as app part.

And the last but not least capability is new Task title field. Now it is not necessarily to select task name field of the list for Kanban task title, you can choose any other field to display it on Office 365 Kanban card!

In this example, the Title field of item and Title field that was chosen for displaying on task body have the same list field.

In this example, the Title field of item is an actual task name. And the Title field for displaying on task body contains the value from column “Project”.
