This post is also available in: Deutsch

Display settings refer to a set of customizable options to personalize your space view. With display settings, you can add or remove card details, and change the appearance of views to suit your preferences and workflow. Display settings allow you to mark what you want to see and hide what is unnecessary to help you focus on what’s important. 

With display settings, you can change the appearance of:

Remember that each space view has its own characteristics and different display options.

Display settings are located on the top space bar.


The example below shows the Kanban view display settings where you can decide whether to show: child cardsempty groupings, or timeline. You can also add or remove card details.

Every space user can change the display settings of their personal space view, but only space owners can change the display settings of the shared space views.

Card details

Each card has a card details section in its structure. There you can find features like labels, dates, statuses, etc. The same information can be viewed from the space level. You do not need to enter the card to check it. Use display settings to show them all.

Card detail can be displayed in a space view:

  • as an icon on the card front (Kanban view, List view, Mind Map view)
  • or as a column (Table view, Gantt Chart view).

If you want to see precise information about cards at a glance, add details from the menu. Available card details to show:

  • start date – the date set for the start of the card
  • due date – the date set for the end of the card
  • creation date – the date of card creation
  • completed date – date of changing the card status to Complete
  • age – number of days since card creation
  • status – the icon with the name of the card status
  •  list – all card lists the card belongs to
  •  label- all labels assigned to the card
  • children – number of subcards (completed/all)
  • default parent – the name of the default parent card
  •   – number of items from to-do list (completed/all)

Not every card detail is available to show in every space view.

Show card details

  1. Open the space.
  2. Go to display settings and select the button.
  3. Choose needed positions.

The order in which the card details are displayed on card fronts depends on the order in which they were added.

Hide card details

  1. Open the space.
  2. Go to the display settings list.
  3. Hover over a card detail and click on the three-dot menu button.
  4. Select Remove.

Expand child cards

There is an option to show all the child cards connected with a card on the space.

All you need to do is to go to the display settings. After activation of Expand child cards option, you will see all the child cards under their parent card.

You can hide child cards in the same way.

This option is available in the Kanban view and List view.

Hide empty groupings

Sometimes you might have empty groupings like Unassigned, that can take up room in your space.

Try hiding them using the collapse button or the Hide empty groupings option in the display settings menu.

This option is available in the Kanban view, Table view, and List view.

Remember to save the changes

If any modification is applied to an existing view you will see the notification about unsaved changes. It appears at the top of the space.

If you want to keep the changes, choose to Save the space view. If you choose to Discard your recent steps, the view will not be overridden with changes.

Go to Space Views for more.

You cannot save the changes to the shared space view if you are not the space owner.


When you change display settings in space view, there is an option to save, discard the changes or save it as a personal view. Only you can see a personal view, but every card action will be visible to everyone in the space.

The display settings menu is located in the top right corner of the space.

Hiding empty groupings completely hides the empty groupings from the space and collapsing empty groupings only minimizes them to take up less space.
