For example, you can use swimlanes to distinguish the priority or responsibility of sub-processes.

User permissions, task watchers, and notifications

With SharePoint Kanban Board Web Part, you can configure access to SharePoint task management. You can set a list of users who can change task content. This way, users can only manage their own tasks or have permission to manage all tasks.

Task watchers receive emails about any changes in the task even if they are not assigned to this task. The task notification feature allows you to track specific changes of a task according to custom conditions (for example, get comments to a task as an email notification instead of tracking comments on board). You can also allow sending notifications to users assigned to a task.

Subtasks Supported

Virto SharePoint Kanban Web Part supports subtasks. Use subtasks when you need to split your Kanban tasks and manage them in detail.  You can make an existing task be a subtask or create a new one.

Statistic charts and diagrams

SharePoint Kanban Board web part displays statistics of your teamwork with charts and diagrams. You can switch from the Kanban Board view to the charts page to track the status of the tasks of the whole project and see user tasks statistics. You can show or hide data from diagrams by clicking on any value on the picture.

Powerful set of task filters

SharePoint Kanban Board Web Part allows you to sort or group tasks according to custom condition filters. Apply filters to display all tasks assigned to a specified user, tasks from a certain project, or use any other value from the SharePoint list fields. You may also use task sorting on a column according to a specified field (for example, sort tasks in each cell according to Start Date).

There are common filters for all SharePoint Kanban board users and personal filters. This means you can create a personal task filter visible only to you.

Search and edit tasks right on the board

You can use an interactive search control to show only the tasks matching to any entered task value (text, numbers, and symbols) that is displayed on cards. SharePoint Kanban cards can be edited in the edit form or from a card directly. When you hover the mouse cursor to a card field and click on it, you can edit this field without opening a full edit form.

Color-coded tasks, condition markers, and tasks total count

You can simplify SharePoint task management, using multicolored tasks and condition markers. SharePoint Kanban Board Web Part allows you to customize color marker, for example, which informs users about overdue tasks. Also, you can define a marker for a custom condition and assign any color to the task body, according to predefined settings.

SharePoint Kanban Web Part provides the ability to aggregate data for a column with the Count option (Sum or Average). This can be used for workload optimization and efficient SharePoint task management. For example, if a list has a “Hours” field (a number field), you can count the time required to close all tasks.

For me it's an amazing task board, it's hard to find anything that good for SP on-premises. Very intuitive and feature rich. Swimlanes - nice structural feature for a board, never seen it before! Look no further if you need a tool like this.
April 27, 2023
Quite nice kanban for daily activities, rich settings that can be a bit too much for some. My personal favorites are subtasks and visual statistics. The apps style is a bit outdated, but overall I can recommend it.
June 15, 2022
Great sharepoint kanban board web part for project management – highly adjustable and personalizable.

Excellent software, I recommend this to anyone. It works very stable and covers my needs in monitoring the status workload, analyzing and correcting the work process, and color code tasks, condition markers, and tasks total count. Moreover, this kanban tool has a powerful set of task filters, search and edit tasks right on the board. It's worth implementing in every work process.
