LeanKit Integration Service for Project Management

We are very excited to announce our LeanKit Integration Service.  With LeanKit integrations, you can move projects, work and/or issues across a customized board. Taking advantage of visual cues, you’ll have instant visibility to the status of your work – despite the fact the data is “buried” in enterprise systems.

The LeanKit Integration Service can be used to synchronize projects between Microsoft Team Foundation Server (TFS), Visual Studio Online (VSO), JIRA, or GitHub, and your organization’s LeanKit boards for a more robust set of project management tools.  The integration service is supported on our Portfolio Edition.

Easy to set up

LeanKit Integrations helps Project Management

Included in the LeanKit Integration Service is an easy-to-use, web-based application for managing the synchronization between your projects and LeanKit boards. Give it a try!

Read the documentation or download the software.

Open Source Integration

We are also excited to announce that the LeanKit Integration Service is available as open source software! With access to the source code, you are free to modify the behavior of the LeanKit Integration Service to suit your organization’s needs, or to add support for your own project management system. The source code is available at GitHub, and is written in C# for Microsoft .NET.

  • Modify the source code to suit your organization’s needs.
  • Create your own “target” to synchronize LeanKit with your organization’s project management tool.
  • Use the source code as a starting point to create your own custom solution for automating your LeanKit boards.
  • Contribute your enhancements back to LeanKit by commenting on this post so that everyone can benefit!

Upgrade to ‘Portfolio’ Edition today to begin experiencing the added power of LeanKit’s Integration Service for visual process and project management.

LeanKit Zapped with Drag-and-Drop App Integration

Databases. Calendars. Planning tools. Execution tools. Email on every device. Using multiple tools/business applications is a reality most of us have accepted and maybe even embraced (Is there an app for that yet?). But as the number of our non-integrated systems grows, the more inefficient and error-prone our work can become.

Easily connect web apps with Zapier integration

LeanKit’s integration with Zapier lets you connect web apps so you can easily move your data and automate tedious tasks. With Zapier’s automated online integration tool, the project and task information you manage in other business applications for communication/meeting management (Google, GoToMeeting), CRM (Salesforce, Zendesk) or marketing automation (Emma, HubSpot) can be consolidated and made visible in LeanKit. Likewise, your business applications can automatically reflect updates made to your LeanKit project boards. And that’s just scratching the surface of visibility and simplicity.
