What is a card prefix?

Kanbanchi card prefix is a short text and number that you can add to your cards on boards. It allows unique identification, for example for a quick search. You may set up card prefixes in board settings if you are the creator of the board (My Drive) or have sufficient permissions higher than contributing (Shared Drives).


When creating a new board don’t forget to turn the card prefix on if you need it. You can do it at the very beginning when renaming the board. The first card will have the first number that you set and the next card will get the next number.

Card prefixes are searchable, so if you know the number of a card you need to find, you may easily find it using the built-in search.

*Advanced tip

Edit the prefix to have cards with different letters on one board. This may be used to have separate codes for cards that are meant for different departments or roles 😉
