The Document Card Widget provides a user-friendly way to access documents within an Innoslate project. With a thumbnail image of the document's content, users can easily make (some) modifications and navigate directly to the document for efficient document management. This widget is conveniently available in both the Project Dashboard and the Documents Dashboard.

Adding a ‘Document Card’ Widget

1.   From the Project or Documents Dashboard, click the ‘ Add Widget’ button.



2.   The ‘Adding Widget’ pop up will appear. Select ‘Document Card‘.
