Card Blockers

Last modified:


The card Blocker allows you to Block cards with a specific reason. Create multiple Blockers to make the Blocked reasons explicit and to categorize your problematic work. There will be a new counter that indicates the Blocked cards by you in the order of impact. Impact will be calculated based on the relations and due dates.

Creating Blockers

1. To create a Blocker, go to Settings.

On demand Blockers - When this type of Blocker is created, every Board Owner could choose to add it to the boards they manage.
