Card View

Any Card View Users?

See Screen Shot 

How can I get Card View to specify the Column Name on the card?


On the Left Card -  "JOB# 10002121"

10002121 is JOB# Column but when I'm looking at Card View it doesnt clarify that. I can work around this by manually adding "JOB#" in the cell before the #s

HOWEVER, when it comes to symbols / dropdowns, I cannot use that same work around.

I'd like for it to read across " COLUMN NAME : symbol"

Any suggestions/advice?





  • Laura,


    Definitely a work around, but you could use the a hidden + locked column containing a formula to represent this. Simply select this field instead of the real one to display.

    The formula could be:   ="Status: " + Status1

  • Not seeing a way to edit my old post with the new community layout, but I'm not seeing you meant a Symbol column and not a Dropdown column. My solution will definitely not work for that

    Thanks anyways! Hopefully someone will have some experience in working with multi-symbols on card view.

    How would this formula read if you want it to remain blank if the cell its reading from is blank?

    I would suggest writing an enhancement request for showing column names with symbol (configurable per field would be my suggested)

    Why did the dropdown's not work?

    Would it work with Ben's suggestion if you changed it to this:

    =IF(NOT(ISBLANK(Status1)), "Status: " + Status1)
