How do I add, delete, customize a column?

Columns are part of the foundation of your board. We offer many types of columns allowing you to build your board exactly the way you want it to be. 

How to add a column?

In order to add a column, please do the following:

  • Click on the + button on the far right side of the board.
  • Choose the type of column that you would like to add from the options below. 
  • Select the column you would like to add either from the drop-down menu or the column center. 


You can also add a column directly to the right! Just open an existing column menu and create what you want, where you want it.

How to delete a column?

To delete a column, hover over the column header you would like to remove and  click the drop down arrow. Select "delete column" and here you go!



How to sort a column?

Use the sorting option found above each column in each group of items. Clicking on the sort button once will sort your items one way. Clicking it again will sort them the opposite way.



Once you have sorted a column, if you want the sort to save, you can click on the tick button to the left of the sort button. You will see a pop up which will ask you if you want to save the sort for just the specific group you sorted or for the entire board.


 Tip: To sort according to the opposite order, i.e. Z-A instead of A-Z, click the sort button twice. To undo the sort, click on the 'x' button to the right of the sort button.


You can also sort multiple columns at once. Check out this article to learn more about it.


How to duplicate a column?

To duplicate a column, hover over the title of the column you would like to duplicate and you will see a arrow appearing on the right side. Click it and choose Duplicate Column. 



 Note:  When duplicating a column any set column permissions will also be duplicated.


How to collapse a column?

You can collapse any of the columns of your board. This way, you'll be able to keep your boards nice and tidy 😊 This option works the same as the existing group collapse option, so when you're collapsing a column it'll only affect your view.

To collapse a column, click on the arrow located on the top right of your column's title. Select "Collapse" and you are done!


How to resize a column?

If you need make your column width smaller or larger so you are able to see what is in the cell, these simple steps will show you how! 

Click on your cursor in the middle of any two columns (right in between the column title) that you'd like to resize and glide it along to change the column width. 😊



How to move a column? 

To move a column simply hover over the column that you'd like to move, in this case - Helper. You will see a set of 8 little dots appear, take your cursor and simply drag and drop to another column area on the board.
