  • From the "Type" drop-down, select "Create Button" as your Widget type.

  • In the “Description” field, enter in a description for the Create button. Users will be able to see this text when they hover over this “Create” button.

  • If you want all Items created via this button to be automatically nested under a particular parent, enter that parent into the “Parent” field.

    NOTE: Since no Items can be nested under Tasks, you can not add a Task to this field.

    NOTE: If a “Create” button has a default parent set, Users who do not have permission to add Items to that parent will be unable to see that button on the Card.

  • By default, all templates are available from a Widget Card’s “Create” button. If, however, you want to limit the button so that only certain templates are available, add those templates to the “Available Templates” field.

    NOTE: If a User does not have permission to create any of the available templates, they will not see this “Create” button on the Card.

  • Click 2018-04-30_1131.png to finalize this Widget.

  • If you want to add an "Item Count" Widget to the Card:

  • Click the Advanced_filter.png to open up the advanced filter window and apply any new filter criteria to this Item Count.

  • Check the box next to "Apply View Permissions" to take into account the current User's view permissions so that they will only see data corresponding to the Items they have permission to see.

    NOTE: This can result in different Users seeing different results.

  • Click 2018-04-30_1131.png to finalize this Widget.
