Create Group

All Items in Boards are grouped in sections called Item Groups. These Groups are color-coded and help you organize and visually divide the Items into different sections with each section representing any notion meaningful to you, or related to the project, process or activity you’re trying to manage.

Keep in mind that, besides being marked by color, Groups are also structures by columns created on a Board level. Once created, they are set up as templates for all Groups in that Board.

Once you create the Board, an empty Group and an empty Item samples are automatically created. These samples are always available at the top of the Board.

However, if you’d like to add new Group manually, follow the steps below.

All the actions listed below can be performed by all Team Members who have access to the Board.

To add new Group:

  1. Navigate to New Item at the top left corner of the Board
  2. Choose New group of Items from the dropdown

You’ll get the template for new Group. Customize it according to your needs.

or:

  1. Navigate to + Add to board at the top right corner of the Board
  2. Choose Group from the dropdown

You’ll get the same Group and Item template ready to be customized.

Change color

As previously stated, the Groups are color-coded to represent different sections in which the Items are Grouped. This color can be changed according to your needs and or preferences.

To change Group color:

  1. Navigate to the Group
  2. Choose Change color from the dropdown
  3. Choose color from the palette
