Add a Widget Card

Widget Cards make it possible for you to bring critical functionality and features to Boards for easy access. You can add Widget Cards containing "Create" buttons and Chart Goals to any of your Boards.


Who can add a Card to a Board?

  • The Board's Editors

  • Anyone with the "Global Board Administrator" permission


How do I add a Widget Card to a Board?

Open the Board with which you want to work, then:

  • Click 2018-05-02_1314.png in the top right corner of the Board.

  • In the resulting drop-down menu, click 2018-05-02_1315.png.



In the resulting window:

  • Enter the Card’s title in the “Card Name” field.

  • Enter the number of rows and columns in the corresponding fields. NOTE: The maximum value of both those fields is “5.”

  • Click 2018-05-02_1321.png in the top right corner of the “Widgets” section.



  • In the resulting window:

    • Enter the widget’s name in the “Title” field. This is the name that will be displayed over the corresponding goal gauge.

    • If you want to add a Chart Goal to the Card:

      • Select “Chart Goal” from the “Type” drop-down menu.

      • Choose the Chart that's goal gauge you want to display in the “Chart” field.

    • If you want to add a "Create" button to the Card:

      • Select “Create Button” from the “Type” drop-down menu.

      • Optionally:

        • Enter a description in the “Description” field. People 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.

          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 addbutton.JPG to finalize this widget.

    • Repeat these steps as many times as necessary to build as many widgets as you want.

  • Click addbutton.JPG and the Widget Card will be added to your Board.


NOTE: Boards have a maximum card limit of 16. Once a board has 16 cards users cannot add or copy additional cards to that board.
