Column Views allow you to add different fields and configure their display and aggregation settings which determine how data is presented in the Gantt type module's task list.
Each Box type has a predefined list of Column Views which you can edit or create new ones.
To configure Column Views go to Box configuration > Gantt type module (Gantt is the default module name used) > Column Views.
To configure the default views and the inheritance mode go to App's administration > Box types > select a Box type > Gantt > Gantt is the default module name used) > Column Views.
Only a user with a minimum Box admin security role can access and manage the Box configuration.
Only a user with a minimum App admin security role can access and manage the Administration.
The Card View configuration page will not be visible if the Gantt module is not active or the Inheritance mode is set to 'inherited only'.
Active column view
Expand the drop-down menu to see the list of available column views. When you select one of them, it becomes active and is applied whenever a user opens the module or returns to it.
The Column Views can be inherited by the sub-level Boxes when the Inheritance mode is set to "Inherited only" or "Own with inherited" in the Box type configuration of the upper-level Box. This way, every time you create new views or edit the existing ones, all available views will also be updated in the sub-level Boxes.
Box Viewers and Box Editors can dynamically modify an active column view but don't have permission to save those changes.
Box Admins can additionally save changes made to the active view.
We recommend using the 'Built-in" type of fields which display field values from all synchronized fields in Jira and connected tools. For example, the "Start date" built-in field shows the date values from all fields mapped as the start date in the Fields configuration and from connected tools, such as Trello.
To add a column, click the 'cog' icon on the far right of the task list header. Use the search box to find the fields you want to add:
Once the view is modified, the Box admin can:
Save changes to the active view
Save it as a new one
Restore the changes
Click on the Customize column icon to:
To pin a selected column:
Click on the Customize column icon.
Click Pin column and select one of the available options.
Data from various fields can be aggregated at the parent task level, or you can change the way it is presented. For example, the status field has different aggregation options and one of the most useful is the "Children status categories" which shows the task distribution in status categories:
To remove the selected column from the column view:
Click on the Customize column icon.
Click the cog icon.
Click the bin icon next to a column you want to remove.
You can mark your favorite views using the star, and your views will be displayed in a separate section of the drop-down:
Delete column views
You must access Box configuration > Gantt > Column Views to delete column views.
You can't delete the column view that is in use. At least one View has to exist at all times.
Switching between column views may clear the grouping. Grouping is based on visible columns - if the new column view doesn't contain columns used for grouping, grouping is cleared. If possible, grouping is maintained.
