Card Structure

A card is the basic element that makes up the spaces. Cards have a well-defined structure that can be expanded by adding more card elements. How to navigate within the cards?

Enter the card

First, to open a specific card, go to the space and click on the front of the card you want to open.

The card front is a visual representation of the card in a space view. It is a white rectangle with the card name at the top and various card icons in the middle.

When clicked, a separate window will open. Here are the contents of the card. Every KanBo card has three major sections: card details on the left, card activity stream in the middle, and card elements on the right.

  • Card Details are used to describe the card. They are helpful in determining the purpose and character of the card. They also give you information about other related cards, users, and time dependencies. 

  • Card Activity Stream shows what is happening in a card. You can explore who created it and track its entire existence. This is the space for comments too.

  • Card Elements are features that make up the contents of the card. They are useful for describing task details with Notes and ToDo lists, or for organizing card documents.
