  • Kanban Board Mod for Spotfire®

    Version 1.1.0, released March 2022



    Kanban boards visually depict work at various stages of a process using cards to represent work items and columns to represent each stage of a process.

    Data requirement

    Every mod handles missing, corrupted and/or inconsistent data in different ways. It is advised to always review how the data is visualized.

    As a basic example you can have three columns "to do", "doing" and "done" and the list of tasks in respective column according to their current status. You could also use a Kanban-like board to plan activities and have columns for upcoming sprints or quarters with activities planned for that columns.

    Setting up the chart

    In this example dataset, we have 3 columns: Task, Status, Status Group, Icon

    A Kanban board can be configured to show a task board by creating a Kanban board with the following settings:

    - Column = 'Status Group'
    - Card = 'Task'

    Optionally we could also use colors to show tasks status. E.g:

    - Color By = 'Status'

    Optionally we can also add an icon to the cards to indicate certain situations of a task or item like existing impediment, complexity or priority. A certain list of icons is available. Add an attribute to the Icon axis, that contains the icon name as a string (see icons list).
