Work with Card Templates

Card templates make it quick and easy to create frequently recurring cards which have requirements for standard information. 

To see a list of all card templates for a workspace, click Templates > Cards. This view provides a quick overview of some of the information included in each card template, such as label color, title, assignees, due in (days), checklist status and number of attachments.

From the Card Templates view, you can create, edit, and delete card templates for your workspace.
