KanBo’s primary discipline and the aspect where it truly outshines is in building the perfect work context.
KanBo allows you to access content from various Document Sources like SharePoint, Egnyte, OneDrive, Google Drive, Box etc. into a card just by drag & drop. However, KanBo also gives you a more customizable option in the form of custom document sources.
With custom Document Sources you can integrate any legacy, file system or any other document storage system (i.e. proprietary archiving system) to provide its content to be drag & dropped onto KanBo cards.
The same applies to attaching Data Entities (Objects including their data) from various Data Sources to KanBo Cards like:
- Invoice from SAP
- Lead from Salesforce
- Ticket from ServiceNow
- Customer from Microsoft Dynamics
- Employee from PeopleSoft
- Record for an SQL Database
- JSON from any REST Service, etc.
In order to implement custom document & data sources for your own needs you need to implement the IDocSource and IDataSource interface for KanBo to use it natively.
See the API Reference for details about all KanBo interfaces.
