Filter a Slideboard

For more information about filtering a Slideboard, refer to the Filters user guide.

Histogram display

Histograms are automatically formed when the size of your screen no longer allows the display of cards . A (configurable) functionality of histograms is sorting according to the grouping by color that has been defined.

In the example below, the grouping by color is done by “Target Region”. When hovering over the green parts, a tooltip indicates that these spots are assigned to the “Europe” zone. By clicking on this part of the histogram, a sort is then set up on the spots with the target zone “Europe”, and a filter “target zone = Europe” is added in the filters menu.



A system of column collapse is possible as soon as you hover and click over the column header (see below). To go back and make a column bigger, just go back to the column header to do the opposite.


This option can also be used to display the cards in the case where the columns are in “histogram” mode, for instance when a column contains too many cards to display them all:


Multiple columns can be collapsed, except in the case where all columns are collapsed.

Create a card from the Slideboard

When the card creation is activated, a “+” button appears under the name of each column of the Slideboard. By clicking on it, a creation block appears. Depending on the settings, you must enter the card's title and other information. The fields required to create the card are indicated by a small asterisk. Click on the "Create" button to validate. Once the card is created, it stacks on top of the other cards in the column.


The card will be created in the same space as the Slideboard form.

Closed card

From the Slideboard, it is possible to access certain additional information on the card without having to open it.


To do this, all you have to do is hover the card. The information configured by the administrator for the closed card will be displayed, such as the name of the manager, for instance.

Opened card

  1. Breadcrumb: It allows you to navigate to the parent, and the parent of the parent of the map.

  2. Card header:

    • Card Title

    • Tags interface

    • Refresh button

    • Open in a new tab button

    • Share button

    • Option to delete card and show activity feed

  3. Content of the card:

    The content of the card varies according to the configuration carried out upstream, and the blocks can be of different types according to the need.

    • A form block containing information about the product or the task to be performed.

    • A text block with layout that also lets you share photos, links, and content related to the task or product.

    • A social block to discuss the product and identify stakeholders so that they are notified of your message.

    • A document block allowing you to add documents related to the product, Powerpoint presentations, videos, etc.

    • A sub-list block allowing you to open and consult tasks directly from a map.

    • A custom block allowing to add an external application, an iframe etc.

    The number of blocks displayed (from 1 to 4) depends on the size of your screen. For each of them, it is possible to use the block display in full screen. On maps that contain many blocks, you can use the block selector at the bottom right, which will temporarily open on top of another block.

Cards drag & drop


The drag & drop functionality works on a card but also on several cards juxtaposed in the same column. The example above shows this second case.

To move a single card, simply hold down the mouse button on the selected card in order to drag and drop it in the desired column.

To move several cards, the principle is the same, but you must first select all the cards you want to move (once selected, the cards are colored).


  • You cannot display more than 4 columns in a sub-list block in normal display. To see all the columns, you must display the block in full screen.

  • When drilling down in a Slideboard, there are only 3 possible levels.

    Ex: the programs Slideboard will contain project cards which will contain milestone sub-cards, but you won't see the actions linked to these milestones.

  • In the Slideboard, it is not possible to group together on multi-value fields.

Columns and groups of columns

  • Columns: The Gridboard allows you to display data in tabular form. This table is composed of columns and the administrator can configure as many columns as needed. However, the number of displayable columns is limited to 50 for a Gridboard.

    You can resize a column by clicking on the border separating the columns and dragging it to the right or left.

    To auto-resize a column or a group of columns' width, you can double click on its right border header.

  • Column colors: The default column color is orange and is not configurable. Color is configurable on the level of column groups.

  • Column groups: A Gridboard can contain one or more group(s) of columns and each group of columns can contain one or more column(s). The administrator can configure the columns and choose the display color as well as the columns present in each group of columns. It is possible to hide groups of columns in order to gain visibility.

Manage columns and column groups

  • Columns display: It is possible to display up to 50 columns in a Gridboard and to choose which ones from those already configured. To choose the displayed columns and/or groups, use the Columns menu (13).

  • Changing the order of columns: It is possible to change the order of the columns by dragging and dropping the header towards the wanted direction. If you save the view, this setting is included in the saving.

  • Navigating through columns: You can use a horizontal scroll to navigate through the multiple columns of your Gridboard.

  • Pinned columns: To avoid losing context, the first column is pinned by default so it is always displayed when you scroll right in your Gridboard. It is not possible to pin another column by dragging it to the left. To change the pinned column, you can use the column selector and hide the columns before the one you want to pin in the column order.

  • Grouping columns by: For better readability, you can group columns by field using the "Group by" menu located in the header (8).

    When grouping, the rows are rearranged into groups accordingly. Row counters are shown in parentheses and numeric column totals are shown on each row in bold.

    Grouped rows are collapsed by default, you can deploy them by clicking on the small arrow in the grouping column.

  • Sorting columns:  Columns can be sorted in alphabetical order A-Z and Z-A by clicking on the column's header.  Alphabetical sorting is applied by default on grouped columns. For multi-sorting, use keyboard shortcut Shift+ click on the column's header.

    If you sort a multi-value field that is a document, text or list-picker type, the values of the field are concatenated. (for example: Europe;Asia;Oceania becomes EuropeAsiaOceania.)

    If you sort on a multi-value field of any other type than text, the first value is taken into account for the sorting.

  • Saving a view in Gridboard: When you save a view using the "Save" button (14), the following settings are saved:

    • Displayed columns and their order

    • Grouped by columns

    • Column width

    • Sorting

    • Filters

  • Totals: For numeric columns, the total is displayed at the very bottom of the column (16).

Gridboard Filters

For more information about Gridboard filtering, refer to the Filters documentation.

Editing content in the Gridboard

Card creation: If you have the right to create a card, you can create one directly from the Gridboard by using the creation button in the header (10).

In-line edition: You can edit any fields including multi-values fields, but you cannot edit read-only fields.

To edit a cell, double-click on it to make it active. To validate the edition, click outside the active cell or press "Enter" on your keyboard.

Bulk edition:  You can edit multiple cells at once in Gridboards. Select one cell or more and drag it/them from the bottom right corner to update multiple cells at the time, within the limit of 100 rows for each bulk edition.

You can select multiple columns or multiple rows to apply a pattern, as described in the following gif.


You cannot bulk-edit read-only fields.


If you try to edit more than 100 rows at once, no row will be updated.


Copy-paste: You are able to copy and paste directly in Gridboards and Sub-lists using right-click options or Ctrl+C (copy) and Ctrl+V (paste). The feature works similarly to Excel.

  • You can select one cell or multiple ones by dragging your mouse over columns or using Shift+keyboard arrows to widen the selected area. There is no limit in cells selection.

  • Copy-pasting works on every field type, including multi-values fields and you can do it from a text field to another text field. Same for number fields. Only the field type must be the same.

Limitations: If you copy multiple non-following cells, pasting will not take into account the fact that they are not following, as it does in Excel. However, if you copy one cell and paste its value in multiple non-following cells using Ctrl+click, the value will be correctly updated in these cells.

Copy-paste for external use: You can paste the content in Excel or Teams and it will be readable, with no metadata.

To do so, you can use the right-click menu in your Gridboard or the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Shift+C (Cmd+shift+C on Mac).


If you select the option "Copy for external use with headers", the title of each column will be included in the copy, as you can see in the following example.



All the detailed information regarding the import/export of the Gridboard can be found in the guide: Excel import/export in Gridboard.

Remarks & limitations

  • The difference between "copy" and "copy with headers" is the format output from the clipboard. As this is in CSV, the former will only copy cell values while the latter will add column names.

  • Duplicate columns during grouping: During grouping, you can observe that the grouping column (the first from the left which is fixed) appears twice. This is necessary to make changes in the field. The grouping column is only present as an indication to know on which line we operate by scrolling to the right of the Gridboard.

  • Bulk-edition is limited to 100 rows. If you try to edit more than 100 cells at once, no cell will be edited.

  • Pinned column: You cannot pin more than one column. The pinned column is the first one by default.

  • Limitations on sorting: Sorting on an enum or document field can be different when displayed in a Gridboard compared to Excel display from an export when the board contains less than 1,000 rows. In a Gridboard containing less than 1,000 rows, the sorting is done on the translated value displayed in the cell (example: Status - Ideation). Beyond 1,000 rows and in all Excel exports, sorting is done on the untranslated value of the cell (example: "value":[{"value":"ideation"}]).

    If the translated value is different, the sorting displayed in the Gridboard compared to that in the Excel table will be affected.

    It is therefore technically possible for an enum field to match the value and its translation through configuration to obtain the same sorting in Excel exports as in the Gridboard display. This is not possible in the case document of the field.
