I am trying to convert from Asana to Airtable using Kanban cards. But the Kanban cards, even with the recent improvements hiding fields if they are empty, are still too chunky. Using a non Kanban view on Asana. I can see 15 tasks without having to scroll down, and their Kanban view will show around 5 tasks. But with Airtable, the cards are so huge, I can only see 2 or 3 cards before I have to scroll down.

If there was an option on each card to show a compact view or a standard view, it would greatly improve the usability of Kanban cards with airtable.

The compact view only needs to show the title, and if you want to see more of the card you can toggle the standard view.

This would greatly increase the usability and help me move everything off of Asana.

Such a small request made a long time ago and such a disappointment.
I can’t bring some of my users from Trello into Airtable just because of this.

I also very much needs this (in addition to multi-line text showing on the front of the cards). I want to switch my organization completely to Airtable from Trello, but right now the fronts of cards just aren’t dense enough to make it work.

Quite dissapointed at Airtable’s Kanban view. Kanban is not even in the interface designer. It appears that Airtable is just suck at Kanban.

Same issue here - the kanban card titles get truncated SO short that kanban is unusable… Looks like this issue has been being raised for YEARS i see requests back to 2018…

Please consider taking thiese demands into your product roadmap. At least the fact of hiding the “Field name” and just display the values. It would cut-off by 50% the height of each card and make kanban display lighter in terms of redudant info.

Has this issue still not yet been solved? Is there a different way to help bump this up their product backlog?

Yes Kanbans are completely unusable. Two things:

1. Make the titles smaller and WRAP PLEASE! it only fits 3-4 words

2. Don't show field titles on the cards.
