Mobile app - How to add columns


With more than 30 columns available, you can easily customize your board exactly the way you want. Visit our Column Center to see all the columns you can add to your board right from your iOS or Android device!


How to add a column

There are two ways to add a new column. Let's check them out!

  • "Add" icon

When viewing your board, you'll see a blue "+" icon in the lower right corner of your screen. Click the button to expand the options and select "New Column": 



  • Scroll right

The second way to add a new column is to scroll all the way to the right side of your board (by swiping left on your screen). After your last column, you should see the "+ Add Column" option:


Access the Column Center

After you click "Add Column" or "New Column", you'll see a pop-up window at the bottom of the screen offering a list of some of our most popular columns. You can select from this list or choose "See all columns". This will take you to the Column Center, where you can view all of the columns available to add from your mobile app! 



Note:  At this time, all columns are available on mobile except for the Dependency Column, the Mirror Column, the Connect Boards Column, and the Button Column. However, if you have already added them to your board from your browser, you may still view them using your mobile app with limited capabilities. 


Add a column description

A column description helps board members understand the purpose of the column. You can add, edit, or view a column description on your mobile app for all of your columns! 

To add a column description, click on the column name and press "Description". Add a description, press "Save," and viola! If you'd like to see the current column description or edit it, click on the little info icon next to the column name:



Note:  If you cannot edit or add a description, check your column permissions to see if you have access to these actions. You can find more information on our Column Center and the types of columns here.
