Change dates of cards
It would be nice if we could change the date a card entered the system or a specific lane. Sometimes cards are not created on the day the work started and this is problematic for the metrics.
This feature is now available in SwiftKanban. You can change the ‘Date Identified’ field using excel import and set a past date that should get considered for Lead time computation.
Do give it a try and let us know if you have any further suggestions on this.
I agree. This would be an important feature.
Thanks, I am on a new trial version now. I suppose the import and export of data from and to Excel is only possible with a paid subscription ?
We agree with the occasional need to be able do this but every change in creation/modification/closure date will also impact the computed metrics, that'll have to be recomputed for the card and add to the system performance. Also, merely giving this right to admin may also not help fully.
We have somehow not been able to justify the benefits derived from this change w.r.t to the cost of change required. But this is surely there in our radar. We'll think over this further and see if we need to move up the priority for this.
Thanks for your feedback.

This is something all Kanaban tools need, it is OK to restrict it to admins etc. but sometimes stuff gets moved wrong and the all the metrics can be out
