  1. Create a Card Template

    It would be nice to have the ability to save a card template. I have projects that I need to go through my board every week and I would like to not have to re-imput on the information into a new card and re-set my "to-do-list' every week.

    • CFD needs to show the entire board

      The CFD will only show one smart lane at a time. I would like to see all of the lanes at the same time and individually. My board has 36 smart lanes. I need to be able to see each smart lane separately and at the program level I need to see the cumulative status.

      • add the optional ability to post backlog in a column on the visible board view

        On a physical kanban board, you can have an area to "display" the backlog along with the WIP which gives upstream and downstream stakeholders the ability to look into your backlog and see what you (or the operational review board) did not select for prioritizing. This is very often useful when not everyone who has a stake in your work can attend every prioritization meeting and you have a relatively high velocity and variable WIP flow.

        • Additional Columns for the Hierarchy Import Tool

          It would be great if the following additional optional fields could be added to the Hierarchy Import Tool:

            • Allow us to freeze the column headings when scrolling down the list of cards

              when scrolling down a long list of cards, you lose the column headings. Allow us to freeze them like you can in Excel spreadsheets so you can always see the column name when scrolling to the bottom of the page.

              • Task effort shouldn't have a unit of time associated with it.

                The tasks shouldn't be labeled with Days or it should be configurable.
                Maybe some tasks will take 30 minutes, some 2 hours and others will take 2 days.

                • Blocked cards report

                  I want to see a report of all blocked cards along with the blocking reason and the blocker's comment.
                  I need to this report in order to identify quickly and easily which blockers i need to solve since not every blocked card means a problem.
                  For example, in my project cards are blocked when their owner is on vacation.

                  • Read only access without using up licences

                    We would like to share the project information sometimes with other stakeholders. To do this we would have to map them to one of the existing roles, but this eats into our available license pool. It would be nice if we could allow temporary read-only access for some users at a project level (probably using their email address as a logon).

                    • Automatically move child card to Release & Sprint

                      Business Problem:
                      Identifying and moving every child card of an EPIC to Release/Sprint when the EPIC is already planned for a specific Release/Sprint.

                      Use Case:
                      1> An epic EPIC1, EPIC2, EPIC3 is created and planned for a Release ABC & Sprint PQR
                      2> We start creating child cards UST1, UST2, UST3 under EPIC1. Similarly we add more userstories to EPIC2 and EPIC3
                      3> After brainstorming we have added 10 Userstories to each EPIC. 4> Now we have Total 30 Userstories to be moved in Sprint PQR

                      These Userstories should be automatically moved to Release ABC and Sprint PQR automatically as…

                          The "Stakeholder" role should be similar to the "Reader" role, but with one additional permission: "Stakeholders" are able to create cards and add them to the Backlog only.

                            Hi Rodolfo,

                            Thanks for your feedback.

                            Do you see this as any issue in giving the ‘Member’ role to such stakeholders? If they can add cards to backlog, they might as well want to add it on the board for expediting the requests. But they’ll not be able to delete any.

                            We’ll surely think over it and see if it’s a generic request for other users as well.

                            Current state:
                            When zoomed out to the lowest level the cards on the board show no information. When hovering over a card it shows the card type only.

                            Request:
                            When hovering over the card, at a minimum the card title is shown.

                                Tom,

                                Thanks for the suggestion. Yes, it would be a very nice feature. We are enable a basic time capturing in the coming release ad will explore if a pomodoro timer can feed the time capture.

                                Let us know if you have any other feedback/ suggestions.

                              • Generate notification when card skips "In Progress" columns

                                When WIP limits are violated, a red notification is generated. If a team member skips "In Progress" columns and violates the team's workflow (e.g. in order to avoid WIP violations), no notification is generated.

                                In my opinion this type of action deserves a notification. And I also believe this notification deserves a special color (either red or another color that highlights the importance of this kind of notification).

                                • All Cards Export needs to include Parent Card ID column

                                  When you export all the data for all cards, there needs to be a column for the Parent ID of each card. Since there can only be one parent for any specific card, it seems like this would be easy to add.

                                    The ability to move a slider up and down the X or Y axis of any graph is a powerful way to view performance in the time frame or area of focus. it basically amplifies the signal to noise ratio - allowing users to focus on the specific behavior area of importance

                                    • make it so you can see boards that users are on.

                                      Allow me to see which projects people are working on by clicking on their name and then view. I am frequently asked by managers to "Just give them access to the boards I am on." However, I have not been able to figure out how to view which boards the managers are on to do so.

                                      • Title the CFD with the lane that is reflected in the Data

                                        The CFD has no title and there is no way to know which Data is being shown. This is related to the bigger problem that you can't see the CFD for the entire board.

                                          Hello,
                                          from one year I'm using an Excel in order to maintain all my activities. Now I'm switching to SwiftKanban, but I'm not able to import all my cards that are started or completed.

                                          If I've understood well, SwiftKanban is able to import cards that are not started yet, but it's not possible to import cards that are in progress or already done.

                                            Hi Gavino,

                                            You can import the existing in-progress cards on the board directly by using the export/import option.Please add new cards directly and select any column on the board reflecting the card’s current status.
                                            Please note all the analytics will reflected the time from the day the cards are imported only.
