The Table View

The Table View gives you the option to see a filtered view of the main table of your board. For instance, you can filter by person, status, column, or group. This can help hide certain information that is not relevant for your needs. Here, we have the filter set to "Discussion leader", where we can view one person's items from the main table:

Note: If you are creating a board view from an existing filtered view, the filters will remain intact and the new board view will not revert to the "main" unfiltered view.


The Kanban View

Kanban is a project management technique that aims to manage work by prioritizing tasks and balancing demands according to available capacity. All you need to do is select the columns for the view in your settings and your Kanban view of the board will be ready to go!

The Blank View

Can't decide which view you want? Similar to a dashboard, the Blank View is a great place to choose multiple widgets to display on one page.

Tip: For more board view options, you can go to our Apps Marketplace and integrate one of the available apps as an additional view. 


Switching between views

We offer the option to collapse the board header and access or add board views from one menu, so you can focus on what's most important, and to increase your work efficiency by avoiding unnecessary distractions.

Once you've added a view to your board, you can switch back to your main board view, or another board view, by selecting the dropdown arrow next to the board view name.

If you choose to expand the board header, your board views will appear as tabs at the top of your board. To expand the board header, click on the dropdown "arrow" icon to the right of your board header.

Lock a view to prevent unwanted edits

Do you have a view that you worked hard on to filter to your specific needs? Did you set up a table view with specific configurations that you don't want others to mess with? Luckily, you can now lock a view that you created to prevent others from changing it!


Note: The ability to lock a view is only available on our Pro and Enterprise plans.


To do this, click on the three-dot menu to the right of a view that you created and select "Lock view". In the following screen, click on "Lock view" once again to confirm the change.

Note: All views are supported for locking aside from app views. Additionally, board owners and account admins will also have the ability to edit a view that you locked.


Choose favorites

If you have multiple views on your board, you can choose to "favorite" your most-used views, so that they will be presented first on the top left of your board for easy access!

To do so, select the dropdown arrow next to the board view, select the three dots icon that appears next to the board view name, and select "Add to my favorites".  That view will jump to appear right below the main table view.

To remove a view as your favorite, simply follow the same steps above and select "Remove from my favorites".


Set a default view

Board owners can set a default view for all board viewers and subscribers. To set a default view, open up the same three-dot menu beside the name of the view that you wish to select (it must first be added to your board). Next, click "Set as board default" as we've done below:

Note: While the Main Table view cannot be hidden, a different board view can be set as the default view which will place that view as the first of the view tabs. 


Sharing views publicly

Publish your boards, embed them in your website, and make them accessible to everyone on the web! Check out how it works right here

Easily share the current state of your board view with colleagues by exporting your widgets to an Excel or PDF document! To do this, click on the three-dot menu at the top right of your board view and then select  "More actions" and then "Export to PDF", as shown below.

Note: This action is only available for the Blank View and not for stand-alone board views at this moment.


Restoring deleted views

You can easily reinstate a deleted board view through your activity log. To find the activity log, click on your profile image at the top right-hand side of your board. This will open up the activity log for that particular board, displaying all the changes and updates made on the board. From here you can select the "Undo" button next to your deleted view.
