Kanboard 1.0.13

Here are the main improvements for this release:

Project budget

The budget section is available for each project. The data used for the calculation come from the subtask time tracking, the user timetable and the user hourly rate.

Budget Graph

When you start a new project you can define a budget line. Then Kanboard will calculate the cost for you based on the user timesheet.

User hourly rate

Each user can have a different hourly rate, this feature is used for the budget calculation.

Hourly Rate

Read the documentation about that

User timetable

For each person, you can define a regular timetable for the week but also schedule time-off and overtime.


This data is also used in the calendar if you have enabled the subtask time tracking. The time spent takes into account the worked hours.

Task transitions

Each time you move a task to another column, Kanboard records this action in a seperate table now. So you have a better understanding of the history of the task.

Two factor authentication

Kanboard supports the two factor authentication by using the standard Time-based One-time Password Algorithm defined in the RFC 6238.

After each successful authentication, Kanboard will ask you a pin code generated by any TOTP compatible software.

There are many free and open source software available:

This method doesn't use any mobile phone and can be used offline.
