Add new cards
In the board view
To add a card in the board view, click "Add card" at the bottom of a list, type its title and press enter. Another option is to click the icon next to that button - this way you can also add cards from templates.
In case you don't see the "Add card" at the bottom of a list, it's possible that you were added as view-only member in this board, or that you are a Placker-only member, when the board is synced with Trello (it is required to also be a Trello member in this case).
In the Gantt view
When you are in the Gantt view, you can click the plus sign next to one of the lists, and this will create a card inside it, as you can see below.
Notice that since this view mode is more related to schedule management, you can even set the new card's start date and duration (while in other views you can only do that after the card is created):
From Trello or Planner
Another option is to add cards from Trello or Planner, if the board is connected to them. The new cards will be synced to Placker after a few seconds.
To make the process of keeping information updated and complete in Placker cards easier, you can double-click a card in the Placker Board or Track view.
This is how the card looks when you open it in the Board, Gantt or Track view:
When you single-click a card, there will be a more simple panel at the right side.

Questions and answers
Where do I find custom attributes and fields?
At the right sidebar of the card overview. You may need to click "Show empty attributes" if they are not set to be visible by default.
I can't see the actual dates
To see or edit actual dates, the status can't be open or no scope, because these statuses indicate that the card hasn't started or finished, there for the actual dates are null. So it has to be started or completed.
Can I navigate between cards?
Yes, you can use the arrows at the side of your screen to access previous/next cards
How do I share this card with a team member?
When you are in the card overview, copy the URL and send it to a board member
I would like to change the font size and print the card
You can change your browser zoom and print options for that.
