Sometimes, you may want to hide the content of flip cards from others. Perhaps you're playing a guessing game or team trivia.

  1. Select a flip card.
  2. In the contextual menu, select image Blur and unblur for others. When the flip card is blurred for others, a banner appears at the top of the flip card.

  2. In the contextual menu, select imageShuffle.

Use cases for the flip card

The flip card is great for games, icebreakers, and other fun activities with your team.

Use the flip card to create and play memory, Jeopardy, trivia, or other games with your team. To get started quickly with a game, browse Freehand's icebreaker kit.

The possibilities go beyond fun and games, though. Perhaps you're requesting review of a wireframe, product roadmap, or client deliverable. Use the flip card to provide a cleaner canvas, such as only putting a feature name, two choices, or the required client decision on one side. On the reverse, provide additional detail and explanation; whoever reviews can view the detailed information when they choose to.
