This release introduces several enhancements and new features.
Here are the highlights of SwiftKanban version 4.13:

Highlighting Cards on Board based on Cycle Time Threshold

Having a hard time remembering how long a card has been in a particular column?
Now, the cards get highlighted if they cross a particular threshold set by you.
You can define two thresholds and a maximum value in hours, days or weeks for a particular column. 
Clicking the Cycle Time icon on the left menu bar highlights the current status of the cards in a horizontal line based on the thresholds. Any card under threshold 1 is shown in green, in between threshold 1 and 2 in orange, and beyond threshold 2 in red.

Code Insertion Through Code Snippet

Adding a code snippet and highlighting the keywords and syntax of that code in the card details gets easier now. 
Just click the Insert Code Snippet icon, select the language and enter or paste the code. The syntax will be formatted based on the coding language selected by you.

Adding card from backlog to board directly via hierarchy screen

While adding cards in the hierarchy view (Linked Cards section), you can now select the board, lane and respective column for them to be placed in. Moreover, the same enhancement is also available in the Bulk Edit screen. So, you can now go on adding multiple cards in the hierarchy, each being placed at the right location since their inception.  

Board and Team Wise Notifications

Getting too many wanted notifications? Now you can minimise them by subscribing only for selected boards using Board wise notifications. This will send you notifications specifically for those boards that you select. 

Moreover, as a Manager, you can even set notifications for the selective team members of your board using Team wise notifications.

On Card Operation Navigation Simplified

Now, get all the card operations like Archive Card, Clone Cards, Convert Cards and others just by right-clicking on your card. Not to mention, previous menu options like Links, Move card and Transfer Cards are also available with them.

ESP Analytics 

ESP Analytics, which offers an extended range of rich analytics with which you can extract insightful, predictive data has become richer with new charts, refreshing diagrams, card level drill down and lots more.  Some of the key enhancements:
  1. Multiple filtering options: More filtering options like Time Unit, Value Stream, and others.
  2. CFD chart has now another version, CFD Forecast.
  3. An aging chart has been introduced.
Note: ESP Analytics is available only to SwiftESP paid subscribers.
