Visual Cues for Card View

It would drastically improve the user experience in card view (as well as eliminate a significant number of clicks) if the card view gave us more visual cues. For example, a simple bar or dot or something to indicate status, showing the due date on the card, etc. As is, it's a pretty stark look at what's what, and requires a lot of unnecessary clicking to orient one's self with the list of deliverables.

Hi everyone!

We've released an updated look for the card layout this morning. As part of this, cards will now show the color of the category used to sort your columns. Hopefully this visual refresh will help make the card layout even better for you! Please let us know if you have any feedback.

yes cards are unwieldy and the card view could do a lot more if it had just a few options to select which fields to display.

Sounds exciting, Dominik. Any idea of when we can expect to start seeing some of that rolled out, or even a teaser of what's coming?

So this release was a major letdown after this response. You guys updated the badge view, but card view is still a blank desert with no helpful visual information. Will the upgrade to badge view make its way to card view so we can use it more effectively?

Card view is planned for the future as well :)

We decided to focus on Badge layout first as this was a longtime requested product input with more than 200 votes.

Sorry for the misleading information, we should have made it clear first release was badge layout only.

Sara, I think it would be no problem to collect 200+ votes for an improved card view if discussion weren't distributed on so many feature request items. The card view with the drag&drop feature is so much at the core of Podio...
