The Card Wall widget is configured from the Module Designer. Select a module (or add a new one), then add a tab into which a card wall can be added.
Properties for the widget can be set on the left-side under Properties.
When the card wall appears in a tab in Serena Agile, you must first select an interval (project, release, sprint or team).
Adding the Card Wall widget to a view
You can add a card wall to any custom view or custom workflow that your organization wants to add to Serena Agile. A card wall must be configured for a specific interval (project, release, sprint or team).
- From the application toolbar, click Setup and select Configuration.
- In the Configuration module, select Module Designer.
- Under Modules, select an existing module or click New to add a module. (If you click New, enter the name at the prompt and click OK.)
- Under Module-Tabs, click New to add a new tab. At the prompt, enter the name of the view, and then click OK.
- Select the layout type. The most commonly used layout types are single, over-under, and side-by-side. (The fixed-size and fixed-position layout types do not support the Serena Agile widgets.)
- Select the Card Wall widget, click (and hold down) the mouse button, drag it to the layout pane on which you want it added, and then release the mouse button.
- Set the properties.
- Click Save All.
When you add the Card Wall widget to a layout pane, you can use the Widget Wireup to synchronize the Card Wall with another widget, such as List or Burndown Chart.
The Card Wall widget can perform the following actions:
The Wire_SourceSelect action allows a Widget Wireup to load information in a backlog, a burndown chart, or a list that is determined by the selected interval. When the selected interval on the widget that has been configured as the publisher changes (using the sourcechange event), updates are then pushed to the widget that has been configured as the subscriber.
The Card Wall widget can perform the following publish options:
The sourcechange event allows a Widget Wireup to listen for when a specific interval is selected for viewing in a backlog, storyboard, or burndown chart. When the selected interval changes on widget that has been configured as the publisher, the information on the widget that is configured as the subscriber is updated to match the information for the new interval (using the Wire_SourceSelect action).
The Card Wall widget has the following properties:
The CanChangeSource property is used to indicate whether a user can change the source while they are working on the page. Set this property to No to prevent users from changing the source while working on the page.
The Columns property is used to specify the item types to be shown in the columns of a Card Wall widget.
The Configuration property is used to specify the attributes shown on a Card Wall widget.

The LayoutHeight property is used to specify the height of a control or widget. LayoutHeight can be specified in pixels or as a percentage of the height of the containing pane.
The Layout Width property is used to specify the width of a control or widget. LayoutWidth can be specified in pixels or as a percentage of the width of the containing pane.
The Title property is used to specify a title that is visible to team members while using the widget or control.
