    • Display age of a card in column and have its visible attribute change if waiting longer than task's estimate

      Ability to see the age of a card in a lane and have its color or some visible attribute change if it is sitting longer than the estimated time for the step or some visible flag to attract attention. Currently, when there are a large number of cards on the board it is difficult to find the ones that have been sitting for too long.

      • 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).

        • allow me to change which fields are shown in the backlog view

          For example, I'd like to see who owns the backlog items, and filter the backlog by owner, so that I can change the owner of those.

            Hi Andrew,

            Allowing configuration of Backlog view is not planned, but we can certainly add the ‘owner’ field in the view so that you can filter cards by owner.

            Thanks for your valuable feedback. We’ll surely take it up in the next release.

          • Provide metrics for each team's (column's) performance with drill down capabilities

            Currently, your application provides metrics at an aggregate level for lead time, cycle time, work and wait time based on archived cards only. It will be very helpful, if it can provide work time, wait time and cards processed for each team on the board so that each team can see if it is getting better or worse or at same level. If it is getting better or worse then the drill down to the relevant cards will help us determine what caused the improvement / degradation. Your system captures a lot of value timestamps as the card moves. By…

            • 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.

              • Make Calendar Feature for with Filters for Boards and Users

                Currently, the Home view has a calendar where I can see any task that I'm assigned to with a due date attached to it. This is great. However, I need to manage a team of people, and would like to see their dated tasks on the calendar as well.

                I suggest making a standard calendar feature, which allows you to filter dated tasks by users and boards. This would allow me to view all of my team's dated tasks, from multiple boards on the calendar.

                • Make adding people to the board more intuitive

                  The current set of steps to add a user to a board is:
                  1. Hover over the board name
                  2. Click Team Member
                  3. Click People Icon on the side
                  I find that most managers do not understand how to add team members without explanation.
                  It would be better to have an icon on the sidebar with a plus and the people so that they could add users without clicking to the Team Member page.

                  • Allow the option to pin the autohide toolbar

                    While the auto-hiding of the toolbar is nice for visibility of cards, especially on smaller displays, it would be beneficial to be able to pin it when actively using the board. This is especially true when the board is not on a single monitor system. On dual monitors, it is easy to overshoot the popup toolbar when the board is not on the leftmost screen.

                    • Display the current owner's name on card prominently to drive ownership and right behavior

                      We have currently well over 100 users & growing spread across 3 venues in USA using this application. We may not know all of them by face but know most by name having exchanged emails etc. Currently, the system does not allow names to be displayed prominently. The space for a photo icon gets abused as some tend to use it with different images (cartoon, car etc). From a visual management perspective, if the current owner's name is prominently displayed, it will drive a sense of ownership and right behavior. If some customers like photo icon, then perhaps you can…

                      • allow selection of a floating end date for analytics

                        Currently selecting start and end dates for analytics locks in the dates and must be updated on subsequent dates. It would be beneficial to be able to select floating dates, such as end on current date, or show past X days/weeks/months.

                        • Enhance the new personal view

                          I like the new personal view when you hit the little house and can see all the cards you are working on. I'd also like to be able to quickly see all the cards that I have individual tasks on. On our team, a lot of use have tasks inside of cards managed by others on the team.

                          Big fan. Thanks for the timely updates!

                                  It would be useful to copy the date (appearing in the Comment Tab) from the the relevant card to be shown together with the last added comment.

                                    • Pressing 'Enter' should commit changes and close the dialog

                                      Hello,
                                      For example, when I am editing a lane and change the WIP-Limit I would expect that pressing enter should close the dialog and the change is applied (like when creating a new card). For my opinion, the behaviour is not consistent yet.
                                      Best regards and keep up the great work!
                                      Mathias

                                      • allow users to edit card types after creating them

                                        It's very unclear if it's possible to change a card type description once it's created. So far, I can't do it. Please make it more obvious how to do that.

                                        • View Actual Time Spent on Card

                                          To know the time spent working on card, one has to deduct the Total Blocked Time from the Total Working Time. This is tad cumbersome. It would be better if you can show the Actual Time Spent on the card directly OR exclude the Blocked Time from Total Working Time.
