|Board description||Description of the board contents and use.|
|Supported card types|
Define if containers accept cards, card-pages, or both.
At least one type must be enabled. Both types can be enabled for the board.
Cards belong to the board. Pages (page-cards) are linked to Confluence pages. Pages must be enabled for the board to convert a card to a page-card.
|Template for new pages|
Boards can have a Confluence page template specified in their configuration which will be used when a page-card has been created from the board. The template will be applied when creating a new page or converting an existing card to a page.
When converting a card to a page-card, if a template is set, the page title and contents will depend on whether the card has a title and any body text.
