Display settings are located on the top right corner of a Board.
The example below shows the Kanban view display settings where you can decide whether to show: child cards, empty groups or timeline. You can also add or remove card details.
Every card has a card details section in its structure. You can find there features like labels, card dates, statuses etc. The same information can be visible from the board level. You do not need to enter the card to check it. Use display settings to show them all.
Card detail can be presented:
- as a flag on card front (Kanban, List, Mind Map)
- or as a column (Table, Gantt Chart).

If you want to have more precise information about cards at one 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
