One of them being the Card configuration for your Contacts, Accounts, Deals, and other Custom apps. Cards are a great way to get relevant information in a single place, and we know that what is important might be different for each business, which is why you can change the information that appears on the Cards.
In this tutorial we will cover the following topics:
- What is a Card?
- Access Level Needed to Change the Card Configuration
- Navigate to Card Configuration
- Customize your Card Configuration
- Where are Cards Used?
What is a Card?
Before getting into the configuration, it is important to explain that Cards are small summaries for any of your Apps. Each card contains relevant information about them. But they don't need to stay this way. You can completely customize the information they show to suit your needs.
Access Level Needed to Change the Card Configuration
This feature is only available for Administrator users. If you would like to change the Card configuration and you don't have System Settings in your menu, please contact your team's administrator for further information.
Navigate to Card Configuration
Open the menu and go to 'Settings', then click on 'System Settings' to display the available options. There click 'App Setup' and select the desired app. Make sure you are under Card Configuration'. You can use the search function to search for the App's name to get there faster.
Customize your Card Configuration
If you need to see different pieces of information for each of your Apps your best option is to customize the Cards.
To edit the configuration, you can switch the currently shown fields for any of the available ones when you click on them. There are a bunch of different options for you here: Add a Cover image and show it as a Thumbnail or in Landscape. Select the most important fields for you in the Card Body and decide if you want to show additional information in the Card Footer.
You will see a preview of your Card on the right side of the screen and it will show you in real-time all the changes you make to the Card. Once you are done selecting your field, click the 'Save' button.
Where are Cards Used?
Your card configuration will show in every view where Cards can be found. The Rolodex View is one example, you will also notice the Cards in the Related List on the right side of the screen.
Cards are smart, as they will adjust their size to include only the information available for each one of your Records. And the best part of it all is that they look exactly the same across all your views in the system.
Now that you know that the Cards are completely customizable you can get the most relevant information for you condensed in a simple yet powerful card!
