    As per your suggestions we have introduced common custom fields in the product.Common custom fields will be available across all card types and all the boards. Hence you will be get the fields on the board cards as well.

    Please find the below help link for the same.
    http://help.swiftkanban.com/getting-started/admin/settings.html#commonfields

    Please note in the next release these custom fields will be available in board filter and listing as well.

  2. Create a Card Template

    It would be nice to have the ability to save a card template. I have projects that I need to go through my board every week and I would like to not have to re-imput on the information into a new card and re-set my "to-do-list' every week.

    There are two options available in SwiftKanban help with this -

    1. “Clone a Card”
    - You can create a card on the board with all information you’d like to have available each time a new card of that type is created – and keep it as a “template”.
    - Each time you have to create an actual card to work on, select the “Options” menu on this template card – and select the “Clone card” option – and you will get all the details in the new card.

    More on this here – https://www.digite.com/knowledge-base/swiftkanban/article/work-with-cards-on-kanban-board-2/#clonecard

    2. To-Do List Template

    You can also go to the Board Editor and the “Configure” each card-type to set up a standard set of tasks (To-Dos) for each card type. Every time someone then creates a card on the board, you automatically get the set of To-Dos you defined for that card type.

    More on…

  3. Change card color based on card attribute

    In order to improve the visualization flexibility offered by Swift Kanban, it should be possible to define what color a card should have based on the current value of one specific card attribute, e.g. class of service, priority, etc. The attribute should be defined for each project individually.

    Background: many teams need only one card type (e.g. user story) and would like to use card colors to visualize a specific card attribute that wouldn't be clearly visible otherwise.

    For example, a project using only user stories can classify each story as standard, fixed date, expedite, intangible, etc. and the project…

  4. don't end my session.

    Seriously, this is a tool I'll be using all day. And it's on my work computer, and there's not any incredibly sensitive data here. Why would you log me out automatically like a bank or something? What purpose does that serve?

  5. Support project-specific Lead Time and Cycle Time definitions

    In order to make Lead Time and Cycle Time really useful for any given project, it should be possible for the project manager(s) to configure the board columns where the measurement should start and end.

    This configuration should be made in the "Modify Process" area and NOT as something that can be configured when viewing the metric charts.

    The following blog illustrates quite well why this idea makes sense: http://blog.brodzinski.com/2010/05/kanban-measuring-lead-time.html

    Hi Rodolfo,

    We have now added a capability to select the Start/ End date and view the lead/cycle time accordingly.

    Request you to give it a try and let us know if this meets your requirement or if you have any further suggestions on this.

    Appreciate your valuable input. Thanks again for choosing SwiftKanban.

    Thanks,
    SwiftKanban Team

  6. Can you change the order of what you see along the bottom of the card

    Along the bottom of the card, you see Priority, Estimate, Rank, Cos, Size and Due date.
    Can this be configurable?
    I would like to see Priority, Size and Cos as the first 3.
    thanks,

  7. allow me to do bulk changes

    I'd like to change many cards at once. Let me filter a list and/or select multiple cards and do some common things like change the owner, set the priority, move to done, add a comment, etc.

  8. Create animation of cards moving across the board

    Kanban is all about flow. It would be great if you captured the board everytime a card was moved on the board and used this to create a visual animation with a timeline to show this flow

  9. Add Collapsible Columns / Lanes

    this would help with longer workflows and allow me to have a Backlog column on the far left. A little "twisty" icon would expand and collapse the columns as desired.

    Mike,

    Thanks for your suggestion. This has been implemented – and now you can collapse both columns and lanes that you don’t want to see. The collased lanes/ columns will just show you the name and the number of cards they contain.

    Thanks,

  10. Allow people to be associated to projects when user is being created.

    Enable an invite to board like feature in the create user page so that when the user is created, it automatically adds them to the chosen project boards

    Hi there,

    We have now added a capability to push ‘Live’ updates on the Kanban board.

    Request you to give it a try and let us know if this meets your requirement or if you have any further suggestions on this.

    Appreciate your valuable input. Thanks again for choosing SwiftKanban.

    Thanks,

  12. have an empty value for story size

    Not all cards are sized. However you must give all cards a size on the swiftkanban board.
    The option of an empty/blank value in the size dropdown would be great, Thanks.

  13. Make Reports More User Friendly when Exported to Excel

    Currently time spent in columns are strings rather than numbers so making calculations in an excel spreadsheet after exporting the reports is not possible. It would be a nice feature along with possibly making the reports as pivot tables rather than plain spreadsheets.

  15. 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.

    Hi RIk,

    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.

  16. Ability to mark cards as rework

    I would like to tag items as rework. It would be great to capture this time also.

  17. Provide metrics for average time spent on each board lane

    The following chart would be very helpful for identifying improvement "hotspots" along the workflow:

    For a given time window (specified by the user), create a distribution chart showing the average time (Y axis = average time) spent on each workflow lane (X axis = lane name) by all relevant cards.

    "Relevant cards" can be either only cards already archived that entered and left all/some workflow lanes during the chosen time window or all cards (archived or not) that entered and left all/some workflow lanes during the chosen time window.

    If a card entered and left the same lane several times…

    Hi Rodolfo,

    We have now implemented this feature in SwiftKanban and it is available to all the customers. Hope you are able to use it and it is helping you in analytics.

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

  18. Notification that includes the actual comment

    At the very least it would nice if the notification digest included the actual comment rather than just saying "Added a new comment on XXX".

    But it would be really great if an email was generated for that specific comment and sent to the mentioned team mate and if they reply to the email it updates the card and also emails the team-mate that left the original comment and so on with the whole conversation...

  20. Work Completion Gantt

    Possible to get a Gantt kind of view to show the card progress? the current views do not give a consolidated picture of various card status...even though you could filter in list view, hard to go through each and track.
