Getting started with Projects

Here's a quick start guide to help you get the most out of Whimsical Projects.

First of all, ensure you're working in Project mode, then you can get started!

Making Cards and Stacks

There are a few ways to make your first Card:

  • Double click on the canvas
  • Use the Add Card option by selecting it from the toolbar
  • Use the keyboard shortcut A

To make a Stack

  • Use the Add Stack option by selecting it from the toolbar
  • Use the keyboard shortcut S

Customising Cards and Stacks

When you create or edit a Card, there are a set of customisation options available in the toolbar including:

  • Changing the size of the card
  • Changing the colour of a card
  • Choosing whether to watch the card or not
  • Assigning the card to yourself or a teammate
  • Duplicating the card

When you create or select a Stack, you get similar options in the toolbar including:

  • Setting the default size of cards added to that stack
  • Setting the default colour of cards created in that stack
  • Options to sort the cards in a stack by:
    • Newest
    • Oldest
    • Latest Comments
    • Most Comments
    • Most Votes
  • The option to open the stack in a sidebar

Import and export

Need to just copy and paste? We have a quick way to import lists and turn them into Cards!

Inside Cards

Once you open a card, you can add a description, including lists, links and images.

You can also assign the card, change the color and send it to another stack - as well as start a discussion.
