Showing Board Name in Workspace Views?

Bradley Irish June 19, 2023

Hi!  New user here.  If you are creating a Calendar or Table from multiple boards, is there a way to permanently display the board that the card belongs to, without having to rely on remembering color-coding or hovering over the name of the card?

Basically, I want to be able to view all my "Next Step" cards across all my boards, so I can see all the things that need to be done.  But if it doesn't easily and immediately tell me the board that each card is from, then the table feature is useless to me.  Is there a way to do this?

Hi Bradley,

Thanks for reaching out!

Right now, there isn't a way to show the board name in the Workspace table view. I definitely understand how that'd be helpful, and have flagged this as a feature request with the team.

For now, if you hover over the board icon, you'll be able to see the board name: 

Do let me know if you've more questions. I'd be happy to help.

New Business Class user here, too, and our entire team asked for exactly this. The board colours are impossible to convey enough info. We have a board for each client. There's no way to make sense of things without seeing the board (client) names.

In addition, the limited amount of colours leads to eventual repeats, which makes this even worse. Background images create an incredibly busy and borderline manic board visual. Why not open up the entire HEX palette for board backgrounds at least?

Hi @Nadja von Massow

Thank you for sharing your feedback!

I understand how the current limitations with board colours and the absence of visible board names in the Workspace table view can be challenging, especially when managing multiple boards for different clients. Your point about the repetitive nature of limited colour options and the overwhelming effect of background images is well-taken.

Regarding your suggestion to expand the colour palette to include the entire HEX range for board backgrounds, I think it's a great idea to enhance board differentiation and personalization. I will forward this suggestion to our product development team for consideration.

While we work on your suggestion to expand the colour palette, you might find the following workarounds useful for differentiating your boards: You can personalize your boards by changing their backgrounds. This can be done by selecting "Change Background" from the board menu on the right side of your board. You have the option to choose from six different colours or select from a range of high-resolution photos provided by Unsplash,  additionally, You can upload custom board backgrounds by clicking the grey box with a "+" sign-in it located under "Custom" in the board backgrounds menu which can simplify the process of identifying with a familiar background.
