  1. Mobile Site Revamp + Reoccurring Cards

    First I just wanted to say that the mobile site on a smart phone needs some work in my opinion. I can't seem to find a way to add a new card from it, if it's even possible.

    For my work flow, I have the same project or "card" every week that needs to cycle through my kanban board. It would be awesome if there was an option for reoccurring cards rather than having to create a new one every week.

  2. Allow lanes to be split horizontally.

    We wanted to split 'Ready' queue such that it creates two horizontal splits, one for 'Product' and one for 'Platform' team. Seems currently its not possible. Would be great to have that.

    We have released this feature in the new version i.e. Swift-kanban v1.1. Please take a look and give us your feedback.

  3. Change card type

    It is sometimes necessary to change the card type after creation (because the wrong template was chosen initially) - e.g. change a card from "Story" to "Defect". Currently this is not possible afaik, so it is necessary to create a new item from scratch (incl. transfer of all attached information & possible tasks) and delete the existing one.

    An additional drop-down on card-level in order to change the card type would be timesaving.

    Thx for reading!

    Hello Everyone,

    Thanks for your feedback and voting on this idea. We have implemented ‘Convert Card’ functionality that now allows a user to convert one card type into other and carry over all the data. This feature is now live on the servers and hope it’ll be useful to all of you.

    Let us know if you have any feedback/ suggestion on this or any more ideas/ suggestions.

    Thanks,
    Swift-Kanban Team

  9. Sticky Filters

    Could filters stick through login sessions?

    Typically I filter my board for the fabric types I work on/interested in but it resets everyday when I refresh/relogin to the board. Can they stick day to day unless manually cleared/reset?

    I'm using Firefox

    Hi Mike,

    This feature is already part of product.If you save the board filter with certain criteria and apply on the board.The board filter will remain persistent across sessions.

    This option is collapsed on the board filter under the down arrow ‘V’ icon at the bottom of the filter.Please check the below help section for further details.

  10. Allow user to copy/paste when entering a new card

    when entering a new card, now matter how few char you get 'exceeds 3000 char'. You have to add the card, then update it to copy/paste in the details from email/request/etc.

    Hi Melissa,

    We have now implemented this feature in SwiftKanban and it allows up to 12000 characters to enter, with an additional compression that will remove the unwanted space characters while copy-pasting.

    Please do try it out and let us know if you have any further suggestions.

    Thanks,

  11. Admin feature to notify users of scheduled outage/work

    As an Admin, I'd like to see a Kanban feature where I can click a notification to send a note to all my "People" users to notify them of something that would affect all users, for instance a system outage for our internal maintenance or changes to boards. This saves the admin the trouble of creating an internal email to all users one by one, or group by group...which is time consuming. A feature within the system would be better.

  12. Create template stories

    Allow to set usual tasks so every story has tasks by default. Example I want my stories to have UI / Design / Code / Test tasks per every new story.

  13. 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.

  14. Allow drag and drop to prioritize cards on the backlog board

    I would like to be able to prioritize cards on the backlog board, using drag and drop.
    This is a much more fine grained prioritization than using high/medium/low.

  15. Full-screen/Heatmap View

    Would be great to get a full screen view of the board. The curren one has smaller size, due to the top menu.

  18. Actual effort tracking

    Is it possible to record actual effort against cards? We wanted to track actual effort spent against tasks but couldn't figure out any option.

  19. Single-click opening

    Stuffs like Project/Story items should get opened in a single click. The current double click view is very unintuitive.

  20. Easily linking to external systems

    Currently we using a competing tool but are keen to work with your tool (after the recommendation of David Anderson) After playing around for a couple of hours one of the biggest draw backs that I have found is the lack of ability to use an identifier to link to an external system. We have an Issue Management system (and an in-house customer support system), accessed by a unique number/url. I understand that a link could be added into the description as a "link" but this is not easily visible on the card, and would need many "clicks" to get…
