  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.

    • 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.

      • 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.

        • 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.

          • 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.

            • 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…

                • Add new role "Stakeholder"

                  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.

                      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.

                    • Please add ability to interact with Graphic reports (like LeanKitKanBan) with sliders

                      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.

                        • fix the pixel-positioning of the menus.

                          When I go to ProjectName > Cards > Backlog, half the time I miss the Backlog and go right off the menu because the submenu that has Backlog etc. on it is too far below the top line of the Cards item.

                          Both the menu and the submenu have a 7-pixel margin of dead space (counting the border and the margin), making it that much harder to select an item. In addition, the "Backlog" menu border is lined up with the active highlighted portion of "Cards", which means that if I put my mouse near the top of the word…

                          • Export/import feature improvement

                            The export import feature is currently dreadful. Currently it exports date formats that are incompatable with import. This does not facilitate ease of use when attempting to move cards from one board to another. Either make card movement easier to do or fix the import/export feature.

                              Hi Shon,

                              We regret the inconvenience caused but can you please elaborate the issue a bit more?

                              Are you saying that when you export cards to excel, it changes the date format and throw error while importing ? Ideally, it shouldn’t happen, unless there’s some setting in excel that’s messing it up.

                              We’ll investigate this immediately and see if anything needs to be resolved.

                              Thanks for trying Swift-Kanban. We’ll look forward to your reply to take this further.

                            • 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).

                                We would like to be able to use the TODO Tasks to log defects for cards currently being worked on instead of creating a separate Defect card and linking them to the card. This way we can keep our WIP limits lower as the TODO items wont affect the WIP limits and our board will not be cluttered with Defect Cards for items still in Development.

                                  Hi,

                                  Please can you elaborate more on the need as what more details are required on TODO for tracking .You also suggest you that we have TODO board to keep track of the TODO items separately for tracking and not affect the main Kanban board.

                                • allow 'custom Id' on cards

                                  The default id's based on 'type of the card + number' (card1, card2. card3...) are not 'self-explained', it's very difficult to associate this Id to the task, that might be better represent by a tag or acronym.
                                  I suggest that we could use customized id's, specially on the 2nd level of the kanban board and on the Board PlayBack view.

                                  • A visual indicator of current demand and delivery rate on the main board

                                    I would like to display on the board the current rate of demand and delivery rate of the board. I would use this help communicate the status of our ability to meet demand.

                                      • Ability to change view or add a scroll bar when looking at child card hierachy

                                        Today, when you look at the child hierarchy for a card and the parent card has at least 10 child cards, there is no scroll bar to move up and down on the screen to view all the child cards. You have to try to drag the cards up or down to see them.

                                        • Don't allow archive without viewing incomplete tasks.

                                          When moving cards from one lane to another, any incomplete tasks pop up to be addressed, however if you archive a card, there is no visibility that you have incomplete tasks.
