How do I create an Index Card/Substorm?

Create an Index card to organize multiple sticky notes together in one place.

Index Cards help you organize your ideas better. They work like a file folder on your computer, letting you drag and drop to collect multiple sticky notes in one card.

To create an IndexCard/Substorm:

  1. Double click anywhere on the Storm to create a sticky.

  2. Select Index Card.

Adding ideas that are already created

To add sticky notes that have already been created to an Index Card, simply drag and drop your stickies on the Index Card sticky. 

You can add any type of stickies (Text, Image, Whiteboard, File, Video, even other Index cards) to an Index Card.

How to remove stickies from Index Cards:

You can remove stickies from Index Cards by dragging them out individually. Click on the idea and drag it to a new location in your Storm. 

Enter the Substorm and move ideas out

  1. Enter the substorm to see all of your sticky notes inside

  2. Single click on the sticky note and select "Move to"

  3. The first option will be the level above the substorm that you are in
