About This File

 Stratagem is the next-gen project management app for Invision Community, based on the concept of kanban. Plan, manage, and deliver community projects directly from your Invision Community with the project management app Stratagem.

  • Manage – Implement the project of your dreams using the project management tool set of Stratagem. Create unlimited projects with their own unique workflows. Move issues as they get resolved, or remove them into the special Trash Can.
  • Collaborate – Add users to the project team, assign tasks to team members, and watch real-time updates happen as a team member updates a card or column.
  • Automate – Use the built-in automation tools to auto-update issues when they move into a new stage of the project, by either assigning a new due date or assigning a new status.
  • Control – Define the project leader to spearhead the project, manage the members, or restrict access to certain development stages.

Use Stratagem to plan your next community project, organize a user meetup, implement site feedback, or launch a new initiative. It can also be used for lists, comparisons, or any other form of visual organization.


Kanban is a visual approach to project management for incremental and continuous improvements. The emphasis is on continual delivery of small items without overburdening the development team. Kanban is a process designed to help teams work together more effectively, by allowing your team members to pick and choose the issues they would like to develop next. The Japanese pioneered the process of kanban for industrial management at Toyota.

The visual design is similar to a whiteboard where users can move cards to show progress (kanban translates to “visual card” in Japanese).



Create unlimited projects for online or offline initiatives, each with their own unique workflow, steps, and issues. The app features:

  • Projects - Create unlimited projects with their own unique workflows, teams, and statuses.
  • Columns - Organize your project by columns. Each column represents a step in the process.
  • Cards - Create cards for your task. Each card is an issue to be progressed or resolved.
  • Drag-and-drop ordering – Beautiful visual approach to moving cards in between columns.
  • Statistics – Detailed charts and statistics to help you analyze the progression of your project, identify roadblocks, and resolve upcoming issues.
  • Filters – The project can be filtered in the sidebar to identify cards based on criteria for status, completion, or assignment.
  • Live Collaboration – Columns and cards will periodically update without the need for refreshing. As other members of your team create new cards and / or reorder cards, the changes will reflect on your page for team collaboration.
  • Archive – If cards need to be discarded, each project includes a archive section to archive all cards which saves the cards for future reference.

Stratagem is beautifully visual with drag-and-drop ordering. Stratagem is beautifully simple, with a design that any member can immediately figure out. Stratagem is beautifully powerful, with workflows and badges that can be custom built to your needs.

I wasn't exactly LOOKING for this app but I will say having a trello type thing on my site is such a god-send you have no idea. Instead of having to manage a trello and a site it's all in one and I don't have to make my volunteer staff go to a million places to to deal with my level of crazy.

One of my favorite things is that @CodingJungle has been really accepting of feedback and ideas as well as getting bugs fixed in a timely manner. From stats to assignments this is quickly becoming one of my fave 3rd party apps out of the box. My staff love it and I'm able to better organize tasks so that they are easily found instead of a massive (seemingly unending) list in a topic. It gives my staff a sense of accomplishment to see that their card(s) are completed.

Heck, I've even moved my bug tracker to this so that it's easier to manage based on my staff groups.

If you like to be organized and would prefer people don't leave your site or have people that simply don't like to leave your site this is a great way to coordinate projects, get some of your to-do lists out of a thread and actually get some people completing them. I have to say, since I implemented this I've already seen an increase in completed tasks by my staff just because they can see their progress.

Thanks for this!!

Response from the author:

Thanks for the positive review 🙂 

You have been an extreme help with the development of this app, almost to the point, I probably should've put you on my payroll by now 😛 

but any way, I'm always excited to hear and see what people use my apps for, and i definitely like it when they enjoy them.

Needs many more customization to be made to fit into the forum board theme. Until these changes are made, it simply looks like youre using an iframe to embed a kanaban board. I recommend against the purchase of this product until the developer makes these changes. When these changes are made I will revise my rating. I am basing my ratings off of my wekan and Trello experiences. Ive been using both Wekan and Trello for years with projects that have over 500+ cards and 10+ users. 

Pros and cons which are in bold are extremely important to me.

The Pros :

  • The integration within the board is absolutely fantastic.
  • Use of the WYSIWYG Editor is a huge plus.
  • Card history is available directly on the card.
  • Easy to assign users to cards, easy to tag cards.
  • What settings do exist are straight forward. It makes it easy to change settings through the project manager.
  • Due date for the entire board is a nice feature.
  • The individual permissions for each specific type of team member is REALLY nice. You did a great job implementing that.

The Cons:

  • Cannot change the color of the headers in each lane
  • ipsclearfocus.ui bug ( should be entirely transparent )
  • Cant see the text in the cards on some themes.
  • Some features dont need to exist, an example of this would be the BIU bar when making cards 
  • Cannot easily delete / archive a card. There are no buttons for it?
  • No global setting exists for setting the color of the text in cards, which on some themes makes the card appear as a white box.
  • Clicking and holding to edit a title of a card is time consuming and should just be a quick edit to a title.
  • I believe in supporting developers, I did so with my money, Branding of the plugin should be optional. Or clearly state your project is branded in the bottom right. Also it's 2019, If you're going to brand it put the proper year at least. 
  • The plugin is not responsive. When a page is not so wide, a scroll bar simply appears to move between the lanes. 
  • When only one project exists, Dont send the user directly to the "splash" screen where multiple projects can be selected.
  • No option to change the picture of the project.
  • Make it easier to select what user groups can use the board through IPS, The selection making the board private is not enough.
  • No web hook support, When a specific event happens on the application, A message could be sent to slack or discord.

All in all , I think you're off to a fantastic start with your plugin, after these changes are made I will be more than happy to use it publically on my forum. Until then., I must continue to use Trello. I fully believe you're able to make these changes and earn a 5 star review from me. I currently rate this application as a 2 star because with these issues its not graphically appealing to use this on my website. First impressions are extremely important when developing software for clients. The appearance of this plugin is a huge turn off.

If you have suggestions for the app, you can leave them here:


or in the support topic:


I do consider all request/suggestions, however there is no promise if or when a feature will be added.

several of your "cons" have been address in the latest version, and i believe i have helped you out quite a bit in PM on styling already.  several of the cons, seem to be a misunderstanding of some of the features (maybe an assumption this is a clone of another service, which its not meant to be. its ultimate goal is to offer features of kanban, but one that is my own take on it). If you like, i can send you a PM with details on which of the cons i believe are a misunderstanding and not an actual bug or issue with the way the app was designed to be.
