Articles on: 🚀 Getting Started

We call Drag Card View the view you have when clicking inside a card on a Drag board.

This is how it looks:

This article will walk you through how to use it.

The Drag Card View is broken down into tabs. Each tab contains information in different formats. To switch between tabs, simply click on their respective names.

Below is a quick explanation of what each tab consists of:

Details Tabs

Detail tabs only exists in cards that contain emails. It shows the content of the email conversation within a specific card. If the card you're looking into is merged to other cards, you will be able to access the content of the other merged cards on the Related tab.

By default, the title of an email card will be the original email subject. But you can rename cards, to any name you want.

Inside this tab, you can perform typical email actions such as archive, deleted, mark as read/unread, star/unstar, reply, reply all or forward. You can also reply as a shared inbox, Google Group or another team member's email address, if the required set up is in place.

Tasks Tab

You can also build a checklist around a specific card using the task tab. To do it:

Click on the task tab.

Write the subtask you want to add in the input box on the top.

Hit enter on the keyboard.

To mark a subtask as complete, check the checkbox next to the subtask name.

You can also edit or delete a subtask by clicking on the respective pen and bin icons, respectively, on the right side next to each task.

From the card view, you can also view the number of complete subtasks next to Tasks tab title, followed by the total number of subtasks (for example, 2/3 means 2 tasks out of 3 have been completed).

Notes Tab

This tab is like a virtual notebook. It was made for you to make notes about that specific card that you want to be accessed easily. To use it:

Click on the Notes tab.

Type the notes you would like to add to the card.

Notes will be auto-saved when you leave the interface.

Activity Tab

The Activity tab logs every activity that happened within a specific card. It works as an activity log at card level.

Files Tab

The Files tab allows you to upload or download any files that are related to the card in question. For example, if your card represents a deal that you are about to close with a customer, you might want to upload a contract template or a proposal previously sent to that customer. This way, other team members working on the same deal can have quick access to important files within the context of that specific deal.

The Related tab makes it easier for you to access other cards that are merged to the card in question. Note this tab will only have contents if you are using merged cards.

On top of the tabs, the Drag Card View also offers other collaboration, workflows and productivity features, listed below:

Color changes will be reflected to all members on the Drag Board.

If an email is not relevant at the moment but will be in the future, you can snooze it to a future date. This way, it doesn't clutter your inbox when it doesn't need to.

Our snooze button works exactly the same way the Gmail's one does.

When emails are snoozed, you can still access them in the "snoozed" subboard under their respective board titles on the left-hand column.

Card URL

In Drag, each board and each individual card has a unique URL. By using the card URL button on the top bar, you can copy these URLs and share with colleagues across any platform, to easily give them access to a specific card or board.

To copy a card URL, simply click on the card URL button and it will be automatically copied to your Clipboard, so you can paste it anywhere.

Print / Open as new tab

These buttons work exactly like the Gmail ones, to print emails or open them in a new tab.

Custom fields

Custom Fields allow you to customize Drag to perfectly fit your different workflows. With them, you can create customizable fields for each of your boards that help you manage a specific workflow. For example, "deal value" or "lead job title" for Sales teams or "years of experience" for Recruiters.

Previous / Next buttons

You can easily navigate across Cards on a single column by using the Previous / Next buttons. This means you don't need to go back to the Board view to check other Cards.

These buttons are located on the top right of the detail view, right above the live chat icon.

The Previous / Next buttons will display Cards within the same column in a board.

Internal Live Chat and @mentions

Drag has an internal chat box on the right side of the card view for chat within the context of a card. Click on the chat button on the top right of the screen to expand or collapse the chat box. Whatever setting you choose (expand/collapse) will be saved and become default for any card you open within Drag.

You can also @mention your team members inside the chat, notifying them instantly about the conversation on the card. Learn more about @mentions here.

Every team member invited to collaborate on the board will be able to see the conversations in the comments box.
