KanBo App for Microsoft Teams

Extending Microsoft Teams through best of breed work management platform

Add KanBo to your Microsoft Teams strategy and create a perfect work management environment built to break productivity records. Employees can benefit from the union of two powerful platforms with a dramatic improvement in the quality of information due to increased transparency and clearly defined work contexts.

KanBo and Office 365 Groups
KanBo can deeply integrate into the Office 365 Groups concept that sets the foundation for Teams and Channels within the Microsoft Teams. KanBo reuses the pre-existing resources of the Team/Group to access and store documents.

Here are some ways in which KanBo effectively integrates with Microsoft Teams to deliver a perfect digital workplace:

  • Authenticating Users Microsoft Teams and KanBo leverage the same Azure Active Directory of the Microsoft Office 365 tenant to authenticate users. Multiple KanBo Boards can be attached to a Team and inherit the permissions from the user management of the Team. Microsoft Teams controls the accessibility of KanBo Boards.
  • Document Sharing KanBo can access and attach all documents that are stored within a Team to KanBo Cards without duplicating them – this also works vice versa where documents uploaded to KanBo cards can be accessed within Microsoft Teams Channels.

SharePoint Document Libraries & OneDrive

Work seamlessly with documents from your entire SharePoint & OneDrive in KanBo

Now you can connect any Document Library as document source in KanBo. Sources can include Site Collections, SharePoint Websites or Office 365 Groups in SharePoint online or on-premises. With the ability of bringing your OneDrive or SharePoint documents into any KanBo Board, you can easily use them in KanBo Cards without creating multiple copies.

With external event handlers, KanBo actively informs users about any document changes inside Cards that these documents belong to. One KanBo Board can have several document sources. You can connect one document source to many KanBo Boards.

KanBo does not override the permission settings associated with Document Libraries to ensure complete alignment and compliance. Hence, even if a user has access to a board but not to the documents attached, KanBo will show access denied respecting the permissions of the Document Library.
