In Connections Card Designer, you can create new cards and edit existing ones.

Connections Card Designer

When creating a new card, you can select a card size and set the font. You can then insert available fields from the Connections, People, and Attendance modules as well as your own text. You can also move items around on the card to create the look you want. You can drag and drop items or use a combination of keyboard shortcuts.

Tip

To insert your own text, from the Available Fields, expand Other, and select Text.

There are three toolbars available to assist in designing your card. If a toolbar or button does not display, click the down arrow  at the end of a toolbar and select Add or Remove Buttons. Select Customize to add the other toolbars.
