VirtoSoftware Introduces Improved Virto Kanban Board Online Application for Office 365 and MS Teams

The latest major update of the Kanban Board may be an absolute surprise for the app users or will be the pack of features that VirtoSoftware customers have already waited to implement.

VirtoSoftware presents the major update of the Virto Kanban Board online application for Office 365 and MS Teams. The updated Kanban Board App includes:

  • Using subtasks, or a checklist feature.
  • Rapid swimlane change.
  • Short/full view of Kanban cards.
  • The new style of fonts and icons.

Virto Kanban App supports subtasks

The VirtoSoftware development team has added the logic of parent-child tasks to the Kanban Board app. When a task is too large and needs to be split into smaller steps, subtask mode can be used.

The key benefits of using subtasks are:

  • More detailed estimates in cost and dates.
  • Subtasks help to define bottlenecks and points of issues.
  • Ability to plan day-to-day steps.
  • Getting a picture of possible solutions for better efficiency.
  • Better communication within a team and overall transparency.

Working with swimlanes on a board

When a project team applies special software tools for running a project, the real condition of work becomes evident. The structure of the project, the complexity, and involved resources may need more ways of grouping and categorizing to stay clear for the team and stakeholders.

For example, in software development epics need to be split into user stories. And user stories require dividing into tasks and subtasks. Virto Kanban Board users may transfer this logic to the board, where epic is a board, and user story is a horizontal swimlane with relevant tasks. This way swimlanes on a Kanban board become an additional way of grouping work depending on the case.

Within the latest major update, VirtoSoftware improved working with swimlanes. Now there is no necessity to open board settings in order to change the swimlane field to another one. Users just choose the field in the dropdown right on the board. Switching between swimlane fields lets users analyze tasks from various sides without creating multiple boards for the same list and different swimlane fields.

Full view and short view of cards

The changes have touched the tooltip and the view/edit form. Now the tooltip is changed to a short view and the view/edit form to a full view.

The key reason for such an update was to display the tooltip and edit form in a single place. Users click on a task and just switch the toggle to display the view they need at the moment. The set of fields for both views are fully customized as before.

New font and icons

If working on the Virto Kanban Board, functionality is essential, but the appearance is a pleasant bonus for Virto users. Now the Kanban Board has a new font and task titles look more highlighted. Improved icons have the same logic but changed their style to a more polished one.
