Use a text card to add text to a board. 

This is useful for providing end users with further information to contextualize their data.

For example, you could explain the relationship between the different cards displayed on a board.

Add a text card

  1. Open the board in designer mode.
  2. In the Add card section of the Cards panel, double-click the Text tile, or drag it onto the board.
    By default, the card displays, full-width, at the bottom of the board.

Configure a text card

  1. On the text card, click Configure text.
    The Card designer screen displays. 
  2. Optionally:
    • on the Overview tab, enter a title in the Title field.
      A default title generates from the name of the view, but you can overwrite it.
    • enter a description of the card in the Description field.
      The text you enter displays when you hover your cursor pointer over the information icon (i) on the published card.
    • link the grid card's title  to a page from the Link to a page dropdown menu.
      When the page is published, the title is hyperlinked to the page you select
    • on the Text tab, enter your text in the Body text field. Once published, this text displays on the text card, as written.
    • toggle Display card background to display the card background or to remove it.

Format a text card

Optionally, you can format the style, alignment and color of the text in your text card:

    • select a text style from the Style drop-down list to format the text as: Heading 1, Heading 2, Heading 3, Normal, or Instructions
    • select how you want to align the text from the Alignment dropdown list
    • select a color for the text from the Color dropdown list.
