Wall View

Note: Some parts of this feature are available in SharpCloud versions v9.2.0215 and later

You can imagine the wall view as a blank canvas, allowing you to drag and drop items anywhere on the screen that suits you. 

 

 

Wall Views are also fantastic for creating dashboards/landing pages using annotations (example below). Because wall views have no required structure or axis, you can easily filter out all items and have a canvas for a landing page to be created on.

 

 

For each wall view you create, your story must have a Wall View attribute (a specific type of attribute that is only required and used on the wall view). If a wall view is created with no wall view attributes in the story, a prompt will appear with the option to create a wall view attribute automatically. Without a wall view attribute, the story can’t have a wall view.

 

To create a new Wall View Attribute, simply go to Story Setup > Items > Attributes (as shown below) and create a new attribute with the type of Wall.

 

 

View Setup

For each wall attribute you create, SharpCloud will remember the location of items you place on any wall views which use that attribute. This means you can apply the same item layout to multiple wall views by choosing the same wall attribute, effectively synchronizing your items’ locations across multiple wall views where the same wall attribute is applied.

 

If you plan to create multiple wall views that don’t show any items, you could use the same wall attribute for these views as item location does not matter (such as for dashboards).
