Kanban Board in Microsoft Teams

You can add Kanban Board Pro by Virto to Microsoft Teams as a separate tab. This way, you won’t need to switch between applications to manage your team’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 board’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 “+.”
Add a tab
Find the Virto Kanban app and click on it.
Find Virto Kanban
Now click “Add.”
Add Kanban Board
Choose a board you wish to add and save the settings.
Choose the board
Now you have a full-featured kanban board in a separate tab of the Teams channel.
