Ideas/ Suggestions

  1. Require comment when WIP limit is exceeded

    When a user pulls a card causing a WIP violation in a horizontal or vertical lane (i.e. swim lane WIP), they should be required to enter a reason why they are exceeding the WIP limit.

    This could be a policy option too.

    Hi Martin,

    Thanks for your feedback and voting on this idea.

    We have implemented a new policy that when enabled, prompts a user to add comments when a WIP limit is exceeded for a lane where the card is being pulled. 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

    Hi Signorini.

    We have addressed this issue now, in the Swift-Kanban GA release. Swift-Kanban session is now restored, even you close the browser by mistake. This should certainly save any further hassles of logging in every-time.

    Please do try it out and keep providing us your valuable feedback/suggestions to improve Swift-Kanban further.

  4. Create a Bigscreen account

    It would be great to have a dedicated account for our big screen in the office. The login must persist and the board must just refresh showing the changes made by the team at their PCs in real time. It can have limited rights.

  5. Should be able to order Backlog cards by priority - currently orders Alphabetically

    If I order the backlog by priority, the cards appear in alphabetical priority order (Critical, High, Low, Medium). Firefox 6.0.2

    Hi Andy,

    If you click on the ‘Priority’ column label, you should be able to sort the backlog by priority. Please try it out and let us know if you face any further issues.

    Thanks.

  6. 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.

  7. Change color of due date based on days left

    It would be helpful to color the due date yellow or red based on time left to accomplish the cards tasks.

  8. User Groups

    Having the ability to group users together. Metrics should be calculated as multiple owners, where everyone in the group becomes a card owner. Furthering this feature should include notifications for card blocks only being sent to all the groups that the individual that blocked the card is a part of.

  9. Adjusting the width of columns

    Add a capability to define the lane/column width.
    Some lanes will not have the same flow but the number of columns are fixed for all lanes.
    Some columns can contain a large number of cards which pushes other lanes out of view. It would be helpful if you could change the width of a particular column to position cards side by side.

    thanks,
    Gabriel

    Hello Gabriel,

    Thanks for your feedback and voting on this idea. We have implemented this feature and you can now re-size the lanes by dragging the lane borders to the left or right. This feature is now live on the servers and hope it’ll be useful to you and your team.

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

    Thanks,

  10. Be able to copy lanes in Admin

    When designing a board, it might be nice to be able to copy lanes within a board that have a repeated structure. Even better might be the capability to copy the same structure from one board to another.

  11. Provide a scalable view of the board to see the whole thing

    One of the most significant values of a physical kanban board is as an "information radiator" - the ability to grasp at a glance all tasks and their position on the board. The inability to scale the board in order to see the whole board on the screen is a near showstopper as I evaluate this product. The collapse function isn't adequate when there are a large number of cards on a board.

    I recommend a scaling feature similar to what is available in MS Project Gantt charts, or any other Office app (this may be what was intended by…

  12. Unable to add a lane at the beginning of process

    I can add a lane after the first lane but not before the first lane. I can add a sublane after the last sublane but not at the beginning or between

    Oliver,
    With the new board designer released in the new version i.e. Swift-kanban v1.1, you should be able to achieve this. Please do take a look at it and give us your feedback.

  13. Flipping card should show category and sub-category for tracking time

    Currently if click the flip icon. I see the time spent on every lane. However if my sublane is in-progress and it is like that in three other lanes I cannot distinguish them. I would like for it to show the Category name and subcatergory like Engineering-->in Progress

  14. Notification alerts via emails

    When any comment is added by any team member on a card, then there should be an option for the Manager to configure that all team members will receive an email notification upon any comment added/card status changes.

  15. show current owner on ALL CARDS list

    The Excel export is a bit more robust than we need for our Weekly meeting. I have been using the ALL CARDS list, but it would be great to see the current card owner on the list.

  19. Ownership of card should be optional when moving it

    Have a preference set to either keep the default card move behavior (you move it, you own it) or keep the existing ownership. This would help a lot with my morning standups where I must re-assign the card when I move it.
