New and noteworthy in Trello: Card colors and full covers are here!
Card attachments can now be displayed on the front as full-sized covers, and you also have the ability to change the color of a card.
In addition to being able to upload your own images as card covers, you can now select a card cover from the vast pool that is the Unsplash Gallery (just like when you’re picking the perfect board background!).
Once you attach an image to a card, you are now able to select different sizing options for the front cover display. Click on the button named “Cover” on the card back, and then choose whether you want the attachment to display above the card name (how it worked previously), or as the full height of the card:
One of Trello’s longest requested features is here: the ability to change the color of entire cards!
In the same “Cover” button as above, you also have the option to select from color swatches. The sizing is the same as images–the colors can either appear above the card name, or as the full height of the card:
You can display Card Colors as a card header (left), or change the entire color of the card (right).
Are these features available on mobile? Currently these features are read-only on mobile and tablets, so you are able to view card colors you created on the web.
Where are these features located? On a card back, click the “Cover” button to reveal the entire menu of selections.
Are card colors available in colorblind mode? Yes! Card colors display the same functionality as labels in colorblind mode.
Card covers and colors don’t just make your boards more beautiful and visual, they also can help you stay organized. Check out the Trello blog post for more examples of how to put this in action.
We would love to hear from the community about ways to plan to use these new features. Share below in the comments.
