  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. Make auto-scrolling an option

    Today when I move a card to another lane via the drop-down menu, the window horizontally scrolls so that the new lane is visible.

    I almost always want to stay where I am because I am processing a given lane's cards and moving them as appropriate.

    This same auto-scrolling behavior takes place when I clean up some card type assignments. What I actually do is:
    - Filter by card type
    - Convert a given card to another card type
    - The window auto-scrolls and I lose my place.

    The current behavior is very user-hostile in my opinion.

    Thanks!

  5. 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.

    HI Luiz,

    We do have export/ import of cards. are you expecting any other type of export? We need a bit of clarification to understand the need for this. Request you to elaborate on this.

  7. Support smaller than and bigger than (< and >) charachters in descriptions

    When I use smaller than and bigger than characters, in a form that resembles an XML-tag, I'd like to see those characters after saving and reopening the card.

    It seems that the text I enter isn't escaped/unescaped correctly, so that the UI and browser think "<placeholder>" is a tag it must process, instead of just text in a description.

  8. 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!

  9. Smart Lanes with custom field on the card

    I have defined a new field on my cards: department. I would love to use the values of this field to instantiate smart lanes.

  10. Cost of Delay or Value field

    Is there consideration for creating a visible field for valuing the card work item? Hours is nice for understanding estimate of completion for the card, but there are times when having a positive or negative value for $ cost of the card (especially if delayed) would help prioritize and otherwise determine proper sequencing of cards based on that value estimation.

  11. More ways to update card position and assignee

    There are many places to view card details, but few places to update the most important attributes -- Assignee, Position, and Title:

    Linked cards diagram view
    Bulk edit view (in linked cards diagram)
    Linked cards tabular view (card > hierarchy > detail view in kanban board)
    Card > all cards (or card types) tabular view
    card details view (from linked card view

    Please allow me to update at least the card position(board/lane/column), assignee, and subject line.

    ...This is even more important in the table views where I might quickly update and assign child items of a specific effort hierarchy.

    Without…

  12. Full support for Swedish letters

    As a Swiftkanban user I want to be able to send comments to coworkers having Å Ä or Ö in their names so that they can receive notifications.

    Example: trying to insert @Anders Öberg in a comment will make the comment to fail.

  14. Filter

    Hello. Great job - you guys are improving your product all the time. Keep it up!

    If you could investigate your filter system. It's not intuitive as it should be. I'm using Chrome and it remembers the last filter name when there is no name in the filter and I don't expect it to keep that previous name. Also, I have to go to Reset and/or Apply to clear it.

    thanks

  15. Would like search results to honor the filter they are ran under

    I am an individual contributor and I always have my board set to filter to only me.

    When I search I am interested in searching only my cards. Now when I search for "AIX" I get 20 cards in the result. It is hard to tell which ones are mine.

    Is there a way to do this today? If not maybe this would be worthwhile.

  17. display attachments as thumbnails

    Most of our projects are graphics. It would be great if the attachments showed as thumbnails rather than a text list. And a larger preview opened in a lightbox or new window rather than downloading.

  18. Fill automatically the 'current owner' field with the value 'unassigned'

    It took me a long time to find out why I couldn't move my cards from the backlog to the kanban board. Then I realize that my cards were imported from a excel file, with the 'current owner' field blank, and I was using smart lanes based on the team member. In this case, swift-kanban doesn't recognize that blank is the of 'unsassigned' so the cards just can't be moved from the backlog. After I fill all the fields with the string 'unassigned' the problem was solved.

  19. Option to create image or video card to communicate

    There should be an option to create a image or video card so instead of going on in the attachment section .User can double click on the card and view the image or video in popup.

  20. The blocked time field in the Reports is not calculated properly per action

    In case a card is blocked, the blocked time field in the report will be the same for all records of this lane even if certain actions are done while the card is active.
    So there is no way to tell how much time the user action was blocked.
