SharePoint App on premise

Increase Engagement and Adoption on SharePoint

KanBo gives you a chance to expand your locally installed SharePoint with the KanBo SharePoint App. The resourcefulness of SharePoint combined with the intuitive KanBo experience results in quicker ROI on your SharePoint infrastructure as KanBo increases the engagement of everyday users immediately.

Unlike the WSP packaging solution, KanBo is a SharePoint App that runs on a specific application server instead on your SharePoint servers. This eliminates any chance of dependencies between your SharePoint environment and the application.

KanBo can be configured to access specific Site Collections in your SharePoint and utilize their documents, resources and services. KanBo comes with a variety of integrations into the SharePoint ecosystem such as:

  • Customizable profile sync including user photo
  • Using the SharePoint People Picker
  • Synchronizing SharePoint Security groups
  • Automatic creation of SharePoint Sites based on any template
  • Leveraging the SharePoint Search
  • Accessing documents without copying them and
  • providing several SharePoint Web Parts.

KanBo provides a powerful user experience that is highly intuitive and easier to use than the SharePoint native experience.

KanBo supports SharePoint 2013 or any higher version.

Office365 SharePoint Online App

Adding tangible value to your SharePoint Online

Whether you are a small business or a large corporate organization, KanBo can be installed as a SharePoint Online App within any of the Office 365 plan. KanBo uses the Client Site Object Model (CSOM) to communicate with SharePoint Online and native web services to talk to Office365 products like Exchange, Outlook, Skype, OneDrive, Active Directory, etc.

It supports Office 365 OAuth and can also talk bi-directionally to PowerApps and Flow. Much like its on-premises counterpart, KanBo supports the same variety of integrations into the SharePoint Online ecosystem. Even though KanBo is installed as a SharePoint App it leverages all the foundational services of Office 365 and Azure rather than pointing to outside services.

From SharePoint, and Outlook, to Microsoft Teams and Office Groups, KanBo works across the Office 365 products you use daily to leverage their powerful features on one comprehensive platform.

Microsoft Teams Extension as Azure App

Extending the work management capabilities of Microsoft Teams

When KanBo is installed as an Azure app, it uses the Office Graph API to integrate into the Office 365 environment.

The KanBo Board infrastructure utilizes the concept of Office 365 Groups instead of pure SharePoint sites. Since Microsoft uses Office 365 Groups as the underlying concept for Yammer and Teams, KanBo can easily be integrated with these two concepts. KanBo Boards can be attached to existing Office 365 Groups or create new ones of any type such as native, Yammer, Teams and inherit access to files, resources and services. KanBo also respects the assigned users to the particular Office 365 Group, granting access to its attached Boards only to these users.

Google G Suite extension

Build a smart work ecosystem with Google and KanBo

KanBo provides multiple integrations and a hassle-free single sign on with your Google Account so you can easily connect G Suite with all your work in KanBo. The effective integration allows you to use KanBo and G suite as a seamlessly integrated platform. Here are some exciting things you can do with KanBo’s smart integration with Google G Suite:

  • Import Gmail contacts to quickly assign them to KanBo Boards or Cards
  • Share updates and communicate via hangouts
  • Use the Gmail Add On to make updates to your KanBo Cards without leaving your Gmail Inbox
  • Store files in Google Drive or attach them directly to KanBo Cards without duplicating them.
  • Access files directly from KanBo Cards and speed up communication with our Google Hangouts chat integration.
  • Receive and reply to KanBo notifications and reminders without leaving the Google communications hub.
  • Stay on top of your key dates by syncing the Google Calendar with the KanBo Board Calendar.
  • View and display events from Google Calendar on the Timeline of a KanBo Board.
  • Use import and export to move information between KanBo and Google Sheets.
  • Update or create KanBo Cards from Google Forms using the KanBo data connector.

Amazon Web Services

Use the resources of AWS to host your KanBo

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a leading cloud platform offering fully featured services from data centers all around the world.

KanBo can be installed on the AWS environment using AWS own native services. KanBo is installed on the AWS Elastic Beanstalk and uses an SQL Database from Amazon Relational Database Service to store its data. Additionally, all documents are stored in Amazon WorkDocs which is a fully managed, secure content creation, storage, and collaboration service. The Single-Sign-On experience and advanced user management is being provided through AWS Directory Service.
