Looking to view all of your important item details in one, compact location? Well, you've come to the right place! We've created the Cards View with exactly this in mind, to allow you to view all your important item details in one very visual, gallery-like display.
Keep reading on to learn more on how to set this up on your board! 👇
Add a Cards View to a board
To add the Cards View to your board, click on the option at the top of your board (it will say "Add View" when you hover over it) and select "Cards" from the dropdown menu:
Add a Cards View widget to a Dashboard
To add the Cards View widget to your Dashboard or Dashboard View, click on "+ Add widget" and select "Widgets Center". Search for "Cards" and add the widget!
Setting up the Cards View
After adding the Cards View to your board, it's time to customize the columns that will be displayed! To do so, simply click on the cogwheel at the top right of the view and customize the following settings as you wish:
- Cards Cover
The first setting option allows you to select a cover that will be displayed on your card. From here, you can choose to have any of your File or People Columns displayed as the main image on your card or you can opt to have no cover image at all.
- Card Columns
Next, select the columns from your board that you'd like to have displayed directly on your Kanban cards. On ours, we chose to have the Designer, Status and Asset dimension columns shown on each card.
View all card details
If you click on any of the cards, it will open a pop-up view of the item with all of its column information. From there, you can easily view and update any item details and the changes will reflect automatically on your Main Table as well. 🙌
Edit card details
You can also edit the columns displayed on your cards without having to fully open up the pop-up view! Just click on any of the displayed columns to edit the information shown.
Add new cards
Adding additional cards to your view can be done seamlessly by selecting the blue "+ Add" button at the top left of your screen. Click "Item", type in the name of your new card (item), fill out the column details and then click "Create Item" in the pop-up view. Your card will automatically show in both your Cards View and the Main Table View of your board as a new item!
Sort the view
Try adding a sort to your Cards View to display the cards in the order you wish to see them! To do this, simply click on the "Sort" button at the top of the screen and select "Add new sort". Then, choose the value that you want to sort and whether you want it to be in ascending or descending order!
Edit the view
You can rename your view at any time by opening the views dropdown menu, clicking on the menu beside your view's current name, and selecting "Rename". Then, you can simply type in the view's new name! This can be really helpful for when you have more than one Cards View on your board.
Looking to use your Cards View and your Main Table simultaneously? You can view them together using the Split View! In your Settings panel, click "Split View" to view your Cards View above your Main Table, and click "Fullscreen View" to see only your Cards View.
Filter your view
And finally, if you're looking to only see specific information in your Cards View, try adding a filter to it! In our case, we wanted to see all digital assets in which Noy is the designer and that have the status of "Live". We simply clicked on the filter button, chose these parameters, and now only the relevant cards will be displayed!
That's all for now! We hope you enjoy using our Cards View for a consolidated display of all the important information you need for the items on your board. 🤗
