When you add columns to a the Kanban boards you have to map them to a Work Item State. When you add columns to the board you soon run into a case where multiple columns get mapped to the Work Item state unless you edit the Work Item Type Definition and add custom States to work item and then map the Kanban column to the newly added State(s) . It would be nice to be able to update the Kanban board columns and as a bonus swim lane when editing the work item. While the Board Column and Board Lanes were added as fields in TFS 2015 Update 1 they appear to be Read Only. It would be nice if these were editable so whether you are using Kanban board to drag/drop work item or editing Work Item Directly you can have similar functionality to manage the Kanban Column and Lane.
