CW Kanban has two licensing plans- Agile Team and Agile Manager. In Agile Team licensing, subscribers pay for each ConnectWise member whose tickets and opportunities can be shown on Kanban boards, while in Agile Manager licensing, subscribers pay for each manager who can use Kanban boards (with a limit on how many members' tickets can appear on boards).
The plans are exclusive. You must choose either Agile Team or Agile Manager.
This table shows the key aspects of each plan:
|Licensing plan||Agile Team||Agile Manager|
|Who can use Kanban boards||All ConnectWise members- even those who are not licensed||Licensed managers|
|Board types||Service and Sales||Service|
|What appears as a card on Kanban boards||
|Embed Kanban boards in ConnectWise||Yes||No|
|Minimum license purchase||3 members||1 manager|
In either subscription mode, tickets with no assigned members can be shown by selecting the board's "Show unassigned tickets" option. This doesn't require any license.
The list of members who are licensed can be updated at any time.
As an example of Agile Team licensing, suppose there's a ConnectWise site with four technicians: Alice, Bob, Carol, and Don. Three licenses are purchased and assigned to Alice, Bob, and Carol. No license is assigned to Don (poor Don). Boards can show unassigned tickets (if configured) and tickets and opportunities assigned to Alice, Bob, and Carol. They can show tickets and opportunities assigned to both Alice and Don. However, tickets assigned only to Don will not be shown, because he is not licensed. However, Don can still log in and use the Kanban boards.
As an example of Agile Manager licensing, consider a site with a manager Alice and technicians Bob, Carol, and Don. One manager license is purchased and assigned to Alice. Only Alice can log in and use the Kanban boards. With each manager license, tickets of up to ten members can be displayed on boards, so tickets assigned to Alice, Bob, Carol, and Don can be shown. Tickets for an additional six members could be shown, for a total of ten members. If records for more than ten members needed to be shown, an additional manager license would need to be purchased.
