Kanban Board

Manage your tasks via an easy to use drag drop Kanban board.

The Sysdoc Kanban task board makes it easy to manage your tasks and their lifecycle. Utilising a slick drag drop interface you can;

  • Move tasks between states,
  • assign and reassign tasks,
  • indicate task progress,
  • understand you and your teams workload,
  • and filter by search terms, people or teams

Clicking a task gives you the ability to manage the properties of a task and update it in realtime. You can also get a high level overview of which individuals you have in your task pool and how many tasks they have been assigned.

Fully integrated with SharePoint the Kanban board will visually pull through user profiles and photographs if availiable.

How do I install the Kanban Board?

The Kanban Board is a SharePoint 2013 app. It can be installed directly from the Microsoft SharePoint App store, it is not available as a downloadable package at present.

If you are using an older version of SharePoint you will not be able to use this application. If you do want a version of the application that works in SharePoint 2010 or older please contact us.

Can I install it on my local SharePoint environment?

Certainly! The Kanban board can be installed directly to a SharePoint Online site or to an on-premise SharePoint environment; this could be a development environment or your business production environment.

Assigned tasks are not showing the "Assigned To" value or pictures aren't showing up

If the app in installed on-premise there can sometimes be issues with the domain or sub-domain the app is install on being different from your SharePoint environment. If you are getting problems with Assigned To usernames not showing up or missing pictures ensure that you have added the domain the app is running on to your Trusted Intranet sites either via your domain group policy or local machine (via Internet Explorer settings).

I’ve installed the Kanban Board but it isn’t working, help?

There can be a number of reasons for the app to not work. As the application uses modern technology only Internet Explorer 9 or newer is supported however you will get a degraded experience in any browser older than Internet Explorer 10; Chrome, Safari, Firefox and Opera are all fully compatible.

If you are experiencing a SharePoint error or the application isn’t showing or appears to be showing incorrectly please contact us and provide the following information:

  • The browser you are using and the version
  • Are you using SharePoint Online or SharePoint On-Premise
  • Are you getting an error message? If so please provide the error message
  • A screenshot or screen capture of your issue and the steps you used to recreate the problem

    Hi Friedrich, thanks for your question. Currently, the Kanban Board does not have this functionality, but our team is eager to help and see if we can add it in. Could you provide some examples of what you would like to see on the ticket, and in the summary. Thanks - Sysdoc

    Hello Sysdoc

    If I may start by congratulating you on a very good app. We have started to use the Kanban board on our projects and it works quite well.

    One issue though is that we would like another field, Call it a lookup field where we can assign a specific column in our Task list to display on the Kanban board Ticket as well as the task panel on the right hand side. Is that Possible?

    Hi Oscar, thanks for your question. There is no limitation on cards, and items should be grouped by status. Feel free to send any more information across and we’ll be happy to help. – Sysdoc Tech Team

    Hello, I added this extension to our Sharepoint. there is a limit for 8 cards in the Kanban. This is just not enough. How can increase the amount of cards?

    Thank you

    Hi Keerthi, thanks for your comment. Can you please provide more information on the environment, where it is being installed? Thank you - Sysdoc.

    Hi. I am unable to add this as an app on my page. When I go to a page and select add an app, it does not show under the list of apps in my website. How can I add it to my page?

    The Kanban app looks for Task lists across site collections you have access to in order to populate the drop down displayed in the settings section. You will need to create a new Tasks list through the normal SharePoint method, once it has been created it will show up in the Kanban app settings and allow you to switch which Tasks list the app is using via the drop down.

    How to create a new Board?

    Under 'Settings' it only shows the 'Local' board without the ability to create new one.

  • Gravatar Sysdoc December 1, 2015

    Hi Bud. Thank you for your suggestion, however the Kanban board is designed as a light application to move tasks across states, and as yet, lacks this capability.

  • Gravatar Bud November 25, 2015

    Will this show all work assigned to a person across multiple projects or only one that you might be in?

    Knowing a persons entire workload would be much more valuable.
