FUTRLI’s Card Library contains numerous pre-built Reports which can be quickly added and then tailored to suit your Organisation’s reporting needs. In this guide we’re going to walkthrough how to select and edit a Card from the Card Library.
The Card Library
Cards can be added using the Add Card button on the top of the Boards section. If you’ve never added a Card before, please see our guide to adding Cards for the first time. Selecting to add a Card will cause the Card Library to load, in which we’ll find each of the pre-configured reports which we can add to our Board, as well as raw Card types, which can be built from scratch:
Navigating the Card Library
Within the Card Library you’ll find three sections. The Build your Own section, containing raw Card Types, then the Profit & Loss and Balance Sheet sections, which contain Card Templates appropriate to either categorisation. Simply click a section to expand and scroll through the Cards contained within it:

To change the Organisation which we will be running this report on, all we need to do is select it from the list:

In the first dropdown box we can select our reporting period. If we select either Today or any Last or This period options, then our report dates will automatically update as time goes on. If we select ‘This Calendar month’ for example, this will always display data for whatever is the current Calendar month. Therefore when April becomes May, our report will now display May’s data. When May becomes June, June’s data will be shown. To choose a reporting period simply select it from the list:
