Creating a card view

Turn your table into a card view or kanban board

Updated over a week ago

When managing an ongoing project or showing others a status update, a card view of your data can be really helpful. 

Step 1: Create your table

It's always easiest to start with a table for building your card view. Include all the information you would like to see on your cards.

Step 2: Turn your table into a card view

To see this table as a card view, hover over the table, click Options once it appears in the top right, then select Cards.

This will turn each row into an individual card. Click on any individual card to see more details. You can even update information on the card, or add conditional formatting, and those updates will be reflected in the underlying table, too.

Step 3: Experience the magic of a kanban board

A kanban board communicates a project's progress by using cards to represent each task and columns to represent each stage of the project. Making your cards look like a kanban board is easy, and there are a few ways to do it.

One way is by customizing groupings from a card view.

You can also create a kanban board by hovering over the table and clicking Options once it appears in the top right. Choose "..." in the display options, and select Board.

Alternatively, you can type /board on any page/canvas to insert a kanban board.
