Lanes in card view disappearing

edited 12/09/19 in Archived 2017 Posts

Hi, I have a 'due date' column with a dropdown list. In card view the 'view by' lanes in keep disappearing after saving, the 'drop down list' reverts back to 'date'. How can stop this happening?

    Your lanes in card view are determined by your dropdown list. Have you tried hard-coding some options in the Dropdown List type? I have a feeling (not tested) that your lanes are disappearing because you do not have predetermined lanes in the dropdown list. 

    1. Right click on the header of your drop-down list.
    2. Edit the column type.
    3. Add some pre-determined lanes (See screenshot)
    4. Switch to card view and determine if your lanes are not present. 

    It might be because your lanes are being dynamically created by what content is currently in that field. So if you don't have a value pre-determined, it won't create that lane.
