Select Cards

The List zone provides the ability to see all your Kanban cards in a list view.  When you first access the List zone you will see a message at the top saying “Select one or more cards to perform bulk actions“. This message will get replaced by the available bulk actions once you select at least 1 card.

You can perform a single or multiple bulk actions on the selected cards. For example if you need to update the owner on multiple cards but also apply a specific label to the same cards, then your cards remain selected until you change your selection.

  • selected shown with a green checkmark
  • not selected shown as an empty circle), butt the headers containing cards can

The sections shown as grey headers, can be used to select or unselect all the cards contained within that section. Please note that these sections are your actual columns on your Kanban boards. These sections have 3 selection options:

  • selected shown with a green checkmark
  • not selected shown as an empty circle
  • partially selected shown as a lighter green checkmark

The selection option within the bulk action area can be used the same way as the sections on the List but for the entire list.
