Card View Doubts

Good Afternoon,

I hope someone can help me, the problems I have, are the following (all related to "Card View"):

-First, in the card view I can't get the primary column to not be seen (which in this case is a numeric field that does not provide any value)

- Second, it is possible that the entire title of the task can be displayed on the cards and that it is not cut off.

Thanks in advance.

Kind Regards,

    Hi @Alvaro Rivas

    1. The Primary Column is used as the title for the card; at this time it cannot be hidden from Card View. I would suggest using a different column for your numeric field and use the Primary Column as a field you know will be necessary for your cards. (See: Work With the Primary Column: Overview and Best Practices).

    2. There currently isn't a way to "wrap text" in Card View in the same way that you can do in Grid View and display the entire cell content. You will need to double-click the card to view the entire content.

    That said, the Primary Column is able to display a few more characters than other fields, as it is used as the title of the card. I would suggest changing the content you have currently set in your Title column to be the content in your Primary Column.

    Thank you,
