Are you able to change the size and number of kanban cards or do you make existing cards inactive and create new cards

    I guess you have to make the card inactive after it is full..to generate the new cards...
    system won't allow you to create new cards...without making existing cards to inactive or maybe cancelled

    I have found that a simple personalisation to make the field update will work - does anyone know if there are any bad consequences for allowing kanban cards quantity field to be updated in this way?

    Doing personalizations to force a field to be updatable is as good (or bad) as doing a table update.
    For Kanban cards, updating size could have bad ramifications. Try to avoid that.

    I understand that Updating size when kanban is full or in process may have bad ramifications - i would like to kow what they might be.

    However

    If we only allow update to kanban size when status is empty - what bad ramifications might occur ?

    thanks

    I really can't understand..as what is the main business reason for this update..

    why can't you generate new cards?

    kanban card numbers are used in interfaced systems. Cards are created manually with 'meaningful' naming. client wishes to retain original card number, hence make changes to existing card sizes directly

    You dont need to inactivate current kanban cards. go into its corresponding pull sequences and change the qty's. That will flush throug the its linked cards.
