Nextcloud’s Kanban app Deck today delivered major new features with a new version, including attachment and checkbox support. The last release had well over 30.000 downloads so there are perhaps hundreds of thousands of users managing projects with Deck already and they’ll be glad to see this update come along.


The major changes in this release are the ability to attach files to cards as well as embed them in the description and support for checkboxes in the description. The new color picker and JSON export feature complete the list. Besides these additions, some bugs were fixed and minor improvements made.

Great App! Thank you so much for the development of the app.

I have just one question: How do I use/enable checkboxes inside the description?

Best regards,



Create markdown checkboxes:

- [ ] Second


Thank’s a lot. I forgot blank space.


Thank you very much for your app! It helped to significantly streamline my work.

In connection with the recent update, I have a question: where exactly are stored the files that I attach to the card?
