Box type settings affect the availability of tabs in Box Configuration and the functioning of the Box (greyed out options, unavailable features, hidden tabs).
Box type Module Availability
To be able to change module settings you first have to make sure a given module is active for a Box type. Otherwise, the module itself won't be available for Boxes of a given type. In such a situation, relevant tabs are also missing from Box Configuration.
Hidden or Missing
If you set the mode to "Inherited only" the resulting Box won't have its own setup, so the related tab is removed, as it would be redundant.
|Affected Box Configuration tabs||Comments|
Card Views (Risks)
Risk Cards are the only item under "Risks", so the entire section won't appear at all.
|Card Views (Board)|
Risk Cards are the only item under "Board", so the entire section won't appear at all.
|Column Views (Gantt)|
If both Column Views and Task Templates are Inherited the "Gantt" section won't appear at all
|Column Views (Scope)|
Column views are the only item under "Scope", so the entire section won't appear at all.
When a box type is set to "Sub scope" - the resulting Box doesn't have its own scope. Its contents are always a subset of the scope already defined at an upper level of the Box hierarchy (the upper-level Box must have "Own" scope).
