File Attachments for Kanban Boards

Well, we finally did it. LeanKit now has file attachments. When we first started out, our corporate clients were a little leery of this whole SaaS thingy. They weren’t too sure if they liked their sticky notes being online instead of being on a wall, safely in the office. But they told us they definitely didn’t want people storing files out there on the Interwebs. So, we didn’t allow file attachments. We gave people the ability to link from cards instead in multiple ways and they often used those to link to document repositories.

But, since then people, even the guys in corporate information security, have gotten more used to the Cloud. They have iPhones with, Dropbox, etc. And more and more started asking us why we didn’t have file attachments instead of warning against them. So, we finally added a file attachments feature to our online kanban tool – something that is (we know) hardly Earth shaking, but we hope will make LeanKit that much more useful for our current and future customers.

There are, we promise, some much more exciting changes afoot in the near future. Stay tuned!
