Kanban Board in Microsoft Teams

You can add Kanban Board Pro by Virto to Microsoft Teams as a separate tab. This way, you wonโ€™t need to switch between applications to manage your teamโ€™s tasks.

You can create and manage tasks as usual in Teams and adjust the board settings in SharePoint. Although customization of kanban boards is only available in the SharePoint environment, you can display and manage the boardโ€™s tasks in Teams without access to settings.

The kanban boards in Teams inherit the user permissions from SharePoint and are invisible to external users in Teams. To add a board to Teams, open the channel and click โ€œ+.โ€

Find the Virto Kanban app and click on it.

Now click โ€œAdd.โ€

Choose a board you wish to add and save the settings.

Now you have a full-featured kanban board in a separate tab of the Teams channel.

Dark theme

You can apply the dark theme for Kanban Board in Teams. Open the Teams settings (right-click on the Teams icon in the tray) and choose the dark theme.

The screen will switch to dark mode.

Now open the Teams channel where you have added the Virto Kanban Board as a separate tab. Or see how to do this in the โ€œHow to Install Virto Kanban Board for Microsoft Teamsโ€ blog post.

The kanban board will also be displayed in dark mode.

If the board is somehow not synchronized to the Teams theme, open the board settings ("Advanced Setup") and ensure you have the checkbox โ€œUse Microsoft Teams themeโ€ ticked.
