Looking to perform an action such as notifying your team, starting the time tracking or moving an item with just a click of a button? With the addition of the Button Column, that's exactly what you can do!
Adding the column
To add it, click on the + icon located on the top right of your board and select "more columns". Once in the column center, select the option "Button" from the list of columns or search it in the search bar.
How it works
Once you've added the column, you will immediately be prompted to set it by configuring an action for this button.
To configure the specific action, click on the blue botton "Setup". This will lead you to the custom automations set up, where you will define what action you'd like to trigger whenever you or your colleagues click on the button.
Depending on the action chosen, you will need to set up the respective parameters. Below, we have configured our button to create a new item whenenever the button is clicked. To learn more about custom automations setup, check this out.
Once you've completed the setup, you will see the custom automation for the Button Column added to your automation center.
Customizing your button
Your Button Column can be customized by choosing the color and the text written on it. This can be done by clicking on the small arrow next to "Button", then "Column settings".
Deleting or editing the custom automation for the button column
Deleting or editing the Button Column can be done in the same way that editing other automations is done. Go to your Automations Center by clicking on the automation icon on the top right of the board. From there, make any edits or deletes should you need. To learn more about automations, check this out.
Alternatively, you can delete or edit the automation from the column settings itself by clicking on the small arrow next to "Button", then "Column settings". From there, you can reconfigure it from scratch.
