Synced record card styles

When managing workflows on Fabrie, it's often necessary to connect divergent information on whiteboards with structured information on tables. This can involve visualizing complex content and data, making information more intuitive, and presenting it in a unified format. For instance, component information from tables can be marked on canvas with icons in game design, industrial design, and interior design. Similarly, fabric and plan information can be turned into info cards or pattern sheets in fashion design and product design. To meet such needs, Fabrie offers a synced record card that synchronizes whiteboard objects with table data. By setting more flexible styles for synced record cards, it's possible to visualize table data on the whiteboard, thus meeting the aforementioned needs and requirements. Currently, there are several styles of synced record cards available.

💡 *How to switch synced record card style?*

It’s simple, after you creating a synced record card, select the card and click the first button on context menu, then choose your preferred card style.

Number card

The number card is a basic model of a synced record card. It does not display any fields and is suitable for making simple annotations on the whiteboard.

Image card

This upgraded version of the synced record card now supports displaying image attachments from table data as fields. This makes it suitable for use as icons and examples in game design, industrial design, and interior design scenes. The intuitive style seamlessly integrates into whiteboard content and quickly locates referenced table data.

💡 Image card tips

- If the table record contains multiple image attachments, it is possible to quickly switch the desired cover image to be displayed in "Set image cover".

- By default, the image style synced record card includes a border. To toggle the "card border", select the card and click the gear icon in the context menu. When the card border is turned off, the card cover displays its original style, allowing for a more immersive integration with the whiteboard content.

Text card

The advanced version of the synced record card supports displaying multiple table fields (up to 8 fields, but does not support image covers). It can also combine the content of the title, tag, description, and other fields in the table to create a text card that intuitively expresses an item or theme on the whiteboard. This feature is very useful for to-do messages in design project management boards, or as information introduction cards.

Gallery card

The full version of the synced record card supports displaying up to 8 table fields, including cover images. It can combine the content of image attachments, titles, tags, descriptions, and other fields in the table to form a graphic card that fully expresses an object or content in the whiteboard. This is very useful as a fabric card or sample sheet in design project management.
