Featured image on cards (Board view): how does it work?



I’ve seen a lot of screenshots of Asana board projects that have cards with images that can be seen in the project view. It’s quite visible on the Boards layout page in the Asana Guide too: https://asana.com/guide/help/views/boards

But I can’t seem to figure out how on earth I can do this in my own boards. I’ve tried adding an img link in the card title and description: it just showed the url and not the image itself. Also tried dragging an image to a card, but it didn’t work either. I’ve been googling this (and searching here) for about a week and haven’t found anything about how to do this.

So, my question is: how can I accomplish this in my boards?


And ofcourse I just managed to add a picture as a featured image on a card haha

In case someone stumbles upon this topic because they didn’t manage to accomplish this: I opened the task and dragged an image from a Finder folder to the task. You get a big ‘upload file’ field. Drop the file and it starts saving the image.

At first it didn’t seem to work, so I removed the file again. Then tried to drop it into the ‘title’ field, got the same upload box, dropped it again, it started saving. I could see in the background the cards height were changed (movement), so I closed the task and saw that it now did have the chosen image as featured on the card.


@hiranthi … love your forum etiquette! Thanks for marking the solution, albeit a solution you yourself provided :smile:


@hiranthi hi! Do you know how I can remove a image of being featured? Thanks in advance!


Hi @pkoutsod! At this point it is not possible to remove the featured image on a board card. If a picture feels too prominent, then you might consider replacing it with a smaller image.


Hi @Alexis. Thanks for the feedback. I believe that it would be useful for us to be able to remove the cover image or change it with another attached one, like Trello does.
