As promised, this week’s post is all about what a card is capable of. Think of a card like a little sticky note but a Mary Poppins sticky note—it can be as big as you need it to be.
Here’s some of the cool features available on cards
- Attachments- add attachments from your computer, box.com, Google drive, URL links, and more for easy access
- Checklists- add checklists that create progress bars for items completed
- Communicate- message board members quickly and easily
- Due Dates- set a due date that can also be quickly checked in calendar view
- Labels- create custom labels and visually organize each card
Most of these capabilities are pretty straight-forward. One of my favourite more hidden tools can be found in the description. The description is a great place to lock-down information you would prefer not to be changed frequently or want to discuss.
For example if you were to input a recipe into a card the description is the best place for it.
Tip: remember to save any and all changes to a description for real-time updates.
Here’s an example of the kind of info we’ve used in our descriptions

Cards my friends, they are magical.
