Board views

Last modified:

Board views give users the opportunity to save their own views of boards as public and private ones.

    Views will save filters sorting, types of view, orders of dimensions, and other specific settings.

    Creating views

    When a new board is created, user will see information that the board doesn't have any views. He can create them using Add view option.

    There are 4 categories of views:

    - Kanban

    A list is a collection of vertically-arranged cards. They may represent a collection of ideas, things to remember, or the different stages of a workflow.

    - Calendar

    Calendar shows you all dates, marked with icons: : Start dates, Due dates, Card dates and Personal reminders (Personal Reminders will be shown only to the person who has added them.)

    - Gantt chart

    A Gantt chart is a bar chart which shows you a project schedule in a highly visual manner. With this functionality, you can set a visual view for all cards which are a part of your project (Board). The cards will be seen in a timeframe view and it’s easy to see their conditions on a present day. Also, the Gantt charts will enable you to see all start and due dates of cards in your Board.

    - Analytics

    Board Analytics will help you understand what’s happening in a Board and give you an overview of all actions. Analytics insights are updated accordingly to new activities which are happening in a Board.

    User can type a name of a view and make it personal (or not).

    To add new views, open Views pane and select + Add view.

    Exploring views

    When the first view is created, the user can start adding items (like lists) in the view

    User can open the views window to explore other views (chat view will be always created automatically).

    Changing settings of a view

    To change the settings of a view, Views pane needs to be opened and Settings must be chosen.

    View's appearance

    You can change the view's appearance by selecting the appropriate option.

    In the kanban view, you can decide whether to show child cards and the timeline.

    Filtering by user

    You can select users from the bar above and you will apply a filter that will show cards where the person is assigned to.

    Changing order for a view

    Drag&Drop can be used to change the position of the view in the dropdown. The first view will be always shown first.

    Saving views

    If any change is applied to an existing view, you can select to:

    - save it - the existing view will be overridden with changes,

    - save as - it will save this view as a new one,

    - discard changes.

    Removing a view

    To remove a view, user should enter Views section, select more button and select Remove.
