Board Views

Board Views allow you to get an at-a-glance look at your Records, by grouping them into columns and rows. Board Views may be useful for:

  • To Do List

    Group your tasks into columns to track what is To Do, In Progress and Done

  • Opportunity Tracking

    Show the progress of each of your sales opportunities, grouping by their status and sales region

  • Roadmap Planning

    Group features to develop by delivery phase and delivery team

For more ideas and examples, see our Board Tutorials.

Board View


You can create as many Boards as you like in your Projects. You can also create multiple Boards for the same Table to allow you to get different views of the same data.

Creating Board Views

  1. Open the Create menu in the bottom left hand corner
  2. Click Board
  3. Enter a name for the Board View
  4. Click the next arrow


You can use Ctrl + \ to open the Create menu if it is currently collapsed.

Create Board

You will now be guided through the steps to configure your new Board.

  1. Choose the Table that your Board should show Records from, then click Next
  2. Choose which columns your Records should be grouped into

    The Records in the Table can be grouped by a Field of one of the following Types: List, User, User Group or linked Parent

    Select the appropriate Field from the list and click Next.

    Alternatively, you can create a new List Field to group by by selecting the Create New option

  3. Choose the information that should show about each Record by specifying the Fields that should be shown on a Board card

    Drag the fields from the Available Fields column into the Card Fields column, then click Next

  4. Click Save

Specify Fields to show on Board Cards

Additional Board Settings

To customise your Board further, take a look at the additional settings available in the Optional Steps section of the Board configuration.

Card Icon

You can choose an icon to show on each of the Board cards. This can be an Icon Field from the Table, or alternatively you can show the initials of any User Field from the Table.

Show Field Names

You can choose to show or hide Field Names that feature in your Cards. To configure this setting, simply click the drop down menu and select either Show or Hide.


Field Names are configured to not show by default so you will need to configure this optional setting if you wish to show them.

Column Total

It may be useful to see the total value of Records in a column. For example, if you have a Board of sales opportunities, you can show the total value of opportunities in each of the stages.

Select a number or money field in the Column Total section.


If you have also divided your Board into rows, a total will be shown for each column and row combination.

Card Colours

The Board cards can be colour coded to help your users understand the data at a glance.

Select a List, User or Group Field to control the colour which is applied to each card.

Row Settings

A Board can be divided into rows as well as columns. You can specify which Field to group the Records by in the Row Settings section.

The Records can be grouped by a List Field, a User Field, a Group Field, or by Parent.
