Simple Kanban board

The idea I want to present here is based on Simple Kanban application. I quickly created same kind application using APEX. You can download sample application.

Application needs further development, e.g., authorization so users could share Kanban boards. If you have tested the application and you have improvement ideas, please post comment in our Blog.

    Hi Antti,

    I have not had time fix that sample.

    Problem is with JavaScript. Because sample was made on APEX 3.2, there is own jQuery library integrated. Sample should changed use jQuery that comes with APEX 4.x. Also most of JavaScripts in page HTML header should be done in dynamic actions.

    Hi Jari,

    I'm facing the same problem as vc because I'm using APEX 4.2.2.

    Did you manage to update this application for APEX 4.2? If not, could you perhaps point out what needs to be changed in order to get it work. I've been trying to fix it but I'm new to APEX so I'm a little bit stuck.

    In addition, a working example of this application would be appreciated to see how it works in general. Maybe then it would be easier to find out what needs to be fixed.

    Hi vc,

    Regards, Jari

    Sorry to bother you Jari, Would you know if this application still works in apex 4.2.1. I downloaded Simple Kanban Board Release 0.0.10b, followed the instruction in the readme file as well as I understood, but the create button on the add/edit boards page doesn't add a row. Thanks vc

    Hi Stew,

    Unfortunately I have not had time to enhance this sample, sorry.

    I try do it some point and write new post about it.

    Hi, Is there any chance you have a new version of this, with the ideas you mentioned above? Thanks

    Thank you for your feedback.

    I have already done some enhancements to sample. I try implement also your proposals.
    When changes are ready I update post or write new post with more details.

    Thanks again.

    I only rated the article 2 stars, because I think it'd be more useful if you'd given more information about the application. Having said that, I think you've got a nice start here. The drag-n-drop works pretty well and you've kept it *very* simple. Suggestions include: 1. Indicating the queue size for each step 2. Capturing more details for each task, especially start date, committed date, date put in last step (e.g. Done), so you can start to build metrics. 3. Enabling the definition of a standard board or copying a board as a template for any new boards. 4. Adding a trigger to update a Board's Changed_on and Changed_by fields.
