A few days ago, a notable threshold of 10 000 downloads on SourceForge has been passed.
Downloads come from more than 130 countries all over the world.
The most active countres are France, USA, Germany, India and Brazil.
This situation encourages the team to improve KADOS.
KADOS is web-based tool for managing SCRUM projects and other Agile projects
It allows teams to manage their projects through multiple dashboards on which they can pin e-postit for User Stories, Tasks, Risks, Problems, Notes, Actions etc…
KADOS has been build by a PHP team to replace the Excel Product Backlog of SCRUM projects.
This team has an old and deep reluctance to use Excel files as project management tools and has been tempted to use other quite efficient SCRUM tools, but they were Java based
After a few queries in SourceForge and other Free Software repositories, the team was unable to find a decent PHP SCRUM tool alive.
Then, the team decided to build its own tool and after a few releases to stabilize the software, the team published it as a Free Software.
Its main feature is to provide many screens where the user can move his post-it to change one of the attributes of the post-it, whereas in other tools, you have to edit the post-it through a form.
Kados supports most aspects and artifacts of SCRUM method, but it can also be adapted for other agile methods.
Kados is available in French, English,Spanish and soon German version : each user can choose his default language.
