Codecks comes with a powerful grouping mechanism. Learn how to slice and dice your cards to surface the important stuff.
The order button shows up in three contexts:
You can find it in the action bar to the left.
By default, cards will be grouped by priority. But using the order panel (shortcut
shift+o) you can pick any of the other available orders:
Decks also have a special order:
Manual. This allows to define a deck-specific order via drag and drop.
Except for the Manual order, every order groups card into swim lanes. I.e. when sorting by priority there will be swim lane for each of the three priorities as well as for cards without priority. Swim lanes without any cards won’t be shown.
To get a more compact view, you can activate the
Compact toggle at the bottom. This will group all cards into a single swim lane. Tags do not support a compact view as a card can show up multiple times if it has more than one tag.
The swim lane header consists of up to three parts:
ctrl/cmd + awill select all cards of the current swim lane. Hitting
ctrl/cmd + aonce again will select all visible cards.
For cards that share the same attribute of the primary sort order there’s an implicit secondary sort order. It’s based on priority, then effort and lastly creation date. So if you order by e.g. “Owner”, then high priority cards will be shown first for each owner.
You can overwrite this behavior by
ctrl/cmd + click on an order button. This will effectively push the selected sort order in front of the implicit order defined above. So if you picked “Milestone” as a secondary order while keeping “Owner” as primary order it’ll show cards in the nearest milestone first for cards with the same owner. Cards with the same owner and milestone will again use priority then effort and creation date to sort those further.
You can also define more than one secondary search order by
ctrl/cmd + clicking on additional buttons. The number next to the button indicates the rank of the selected search order. To reset you can do a normal click on the primary order.
Whenever you apply an order in a deck or in a milestone, this choice will be remembered for your browser. Note that the last used milestone order will be applied to all milestones whereas the deck order will be applied to the specific deck only.
To share your preferences with your team (or in case of a public deck with your audience) you can define a “Preferred order” for a deck. Do this by hitting the star icon at the top. When team members or visitors see the deck for the first time they will see cards in the preferred order. They can still pick their own order but will see a hint which will allow them to go back to the preferred order.
