Adding Attachment to a card WITHOUT adding Cover

Hiya

When I attach a file to my Trello card, it appears as the cover - as well as being added as an Attachment.

How do I add an attachment to my card WITHOUT adding it as a Cover?

Thank you :)
Ann

Hi @Ann Schofield ! Welcome to the community :) It is possible to disable card covers in your board settings:

This will turn it off for all cards in your board. If you're wanting to disable card covers for some cards, you'll need to remove the card cover at the individual card level:

Hi Hannah

I can't find this feature, maybe not available on the free version?

Please confirm. 

Thanks :)

@Ann Schofield it should be there just under the regular board settings! The screenshot you shared is more about advanced restrictions/privileges that can be set at the workspace level.

To access your board settings, open your board>>select "Show Menu">>More...>>Board Settings.

Hi Hannah

Great, thanks! I have found it now and can see how it works.

Covers look to be either ON or OFF.

My situation is that I like Covers to be ON in general - when I CHOOSE to use one. However, I want to know how to avoid a Cover being automatically generated every time I add an attachment to a card. Is it possible to control whether or not this occurs?

Alternatively, I could leave Covers OFF in general. And add them back in at the card level for the few times I want one.

Any further suggestions on how to manage this?

 

Thanks

It sounds like the way to go would be to leave them on. For the attachments you don't want to be covers, you'll just need to select "remove cover" at the individual card level. Not sure if there's a different way to approach this, sorry!
