The File Column

We know you use lots of different ways to integrate your important files into your board, but we wanted to give them the spotlight they deserve. Introducing a column dedicated entirely to all kinds of files; the File Column! 📁Keep reading to learn how it works. 👇

How to add it

Click on the '+' icon located to the right of the last column on your board and select 'More columns' like this: image_1.png

Choose "Files" from the Column Center:

How does it work?

Once your column is added, click inside the cell to add your file. You can add files from your Desktop, Google Drive, Dropbox, Box or OneDrive. If you are using the Desktop App, you will only be able to upload files from your computer. 

Note:  500 MB is the maximum file size for each item. If the files you'd like to upload are bigger than that, you can create a zip file and upload that instead or upload them from Google Drive or Dropbox.

 Once your files are added, they will look like this:

How do I edit my uploaded files?

Have you ever needed to edit or make comments on an uploaded file? Instead of having to exit the file in order to discuss it, or worse yet; download it, make comments and then re-upload, use our Annotation feature! With this feature, you can comment, tag, and converse directly on a file in your File Column!  

Note: Currently, you can only make annotations on images. Coming soon...all types of files! 

To access our annotation feature, click to view one of the files from the File Column or from the Files View. Hover at the top of the image, and you will see the option to 'Add Comment' appear.

Once you’ve added a comment, the option to 'Hide' or 'Show' comments will appear!

Clicking on 'Show Comments’ opens up all of the comments or conversations that were previously added to this file. Clicking on ‘Add’ allows you to create a new comment wherever you’d like on this picture by dragging the small pointer to your location of choice.

Tip: You can tag team members and they’ll be notified in their bell notifications!

 

To edit or delete existing comments, click on the three-dot menu to the right of your name in any of your annotations.

How can I see all my files?

To see a list and a Gallery View of all files in one group, you can add a Column Summary! Click the arrow beside the Column's title and select 'Show Colum Summary' from the menu.
