KanBo Accelerates the Adoption of Microsoft Teams

Award-winning Microsoft Partner, KanBo, announces plans to release KanBo connector and bot for the Microsoft Teams collaboration solution.


Berlin, Germany -- (ReleaseWire) -- 09/26/2017 --KanBo on Monday announced its integration with Microsoft Teams through a custom Tab, the KanBo Connector, the KanBo Bot (K-Bot), or Compose Extensions. The award-winning project and portfolio management capabilities of KanBo can help accelerate the adoption of Microsoft Teams through a single-pane of glass, giving executive teams the ability to ask questions, discuss changing priorities, and have real-time visibility into the details of project schedules through Teams.

"KanBo accelerates Microsoft Teams adoption because it helps you to capture all relevant information, documents, and conversations within a simple-to-understand card interface, reducing context-switching between different tools and projects," said Michal Sobotkiewicz, chief executive officer at KanBo. "When using KanBo within Teams, you can quickly assign people, attach files, notes, and checklists, and discuss details by posting comments. KanBo provides a quick overview of what's being done within a single Channel, but also provides instant visibility across multiple Channels and Teams, without being slowed down by status emails and reporting."

With Microsoft Teams, the latest productivity and collaboration solution for high-velocity teams, KanBo provides a number of key benefits:

- Transparency of individual KanBo project plans (boards) within Channels as a custom Tab

- Management and Executive portfolio views of multiple projects, Channels, and Teams

- Granular tracking of project activities that are journaled through the KanBo Connector and made visible within conversations of relevant Channels

- Versatile interaction within Teams using natural language and the KanBo Bot (K-Bot) to retrieve project insights within a Channel

KanBo leverages Kanban lists and cards as containers for all work activities and conversations, ensuring that every activity within Teams has context to a relevant project, task, and conversation within SharePoint, whether online or on-premises. The KanBo solution manages all users through Azure Active Directory, and uses SharePoint's permissions infrastructure to ensure security.

KanBo can be installed within any Office 365 plan, whether you are a small business or a global enterprise. It can be added as a SharePoint App, as well as an Azure Active Directory App. It can utilize the Office Graph API to consume Office 365 services, and use the native Web Services of the SharePoint, Exchange, Outlook, Skype, OneDrive, Active Directory, and more. It supports Office 365 OAuth, and can also talk bi-directionally to PowerApps and Flow.

With Microsoft Teams, KanBo integrates through custom Tabs, the KanBo Connector, the KanBo Bot, as well as through Compose Extensions, providing deep integration within the Microsoft platform.
