How to Add a Cards View in JotForm Tables

Cards view displays your form submissions in card format. This allows you to quickly view data on each submission. You can also selectively display specific fields on each card so that you can get a quick glimpse of the information you need.

How do you add Cards view in JotForm Tables? Follow these steps:

1. In JotForm Tables, click the Add Tab button.

2. Choose Cards view, and click the Next button.

3. From the three options, choose Connect to Form, and then click the Next button. This allows you to select your current form as the source of the view. 

4. Search for and select your current form in the list, and then click the Next button. 

5. In this step, you can select which fields to display in each card. You can select all by checking the Select all box or click on each field to selectively add it to the card. You can also change these selections later. Click the Create button when you’re done making your selections.

6. The Cards view is now created.

In the main Cards view tab, click on settings (the three vertical dots) icon to display the following options:

Clicking the Manage fields option will allow you to show/hide fields as mentioned earlier in step no. 5. 

Clicking the Fields button in the top toolbar also allows you to show/hide fields. We highly recommend using this option as it autosaves your changes.

On each card, clicking the settings icon will also display some options. Here, you can view the entry, edit the entry, star it, and more. 

Selecting the card also displays the More button in the top toolbar. Clicking it will display the same options.

Double-clicking on the information in the card allows you to edit it instantly. Once you’ve finished making your edits, press the Enter key on your keyboard to save your changes. 

Alternatively, clicking the expand icon on the card will open the full display of the submission. Here, you can edit the submission by double-clicking the entry you’d like to change.

Last, clicking the Add Card button will allow you to add a blank card. This adds a submission to your form and will count toward your submissions limit. Double-click a field to enter information into it. 

That’s it for Cards view. If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact us through one of the support channels below.

    When a table is displayed in Card view one of the fields is shown in bold at the very top of the card - the field with the checkbox and index number beside it.

    How do I control which field is chosen for this?

    Thanks
