Add a grid card to a page to display data from a module in a grid.

This is useful for highlighting important numerical data for end users.

You can add a grid card to a board page or a worksheet page. For report pages, use a presentation table, which enables you to apply more format options.

While grid cards cannot be used as a primary grid in worksheets, you can expand them to full-screen from the Additional insights panel.

To add or edit a card:

  1. Select Edit this page in the toolbar to open your page in designer mode.
  2. Optionally, add a new card.
