With and thanks to the sandbox nature of the platform, you can create views that are 100% unique and useful to you!

  1. Table View – standard board view which can be filtered
  2. Kanban View – view and track the status of work more visually
  3. Files View – see and easily access all the files on your board
  4. Form View – easily create new items in a streamlined way
  5. Cards View – see important item details in a single visual display
  6. Dashboard View – Use widgets to create graphs, timelines & more

Helpful board view tips:

1.) Think about your end goal or objective before you try and change anything. What is the outcome you’re seeking by presenting data in this way?

2.) You have options! Explore the different views available, you may find some awesome ways to visualize your board’s data.

3.) Not every column is important all the time. You have the ability to filter boards in dozens of different ways, as well as the ability to “hide” columns when you don’t need them. Take advantage of this to streamline your board data consumption.
