Once you’re in the Labs area, you’ll see a whole bunch of different options and add-ons. For activating the group summary, locate the one labeled “Collapsed Group Footers” and click on it to activate. 

Similarly, you can activate the board summary by clicking on the “Board Footers” option.

After activating these features, you need to give your board a quick refresh to make sure all the changes have taken effect properly.

So what exactly are these group and board summaries we’re enabling? Basically, they provide neat little summaries or “footers” at the bottom of any collapsed groups or boards. 

Let’s say you have your tasks grouped by priority level. With summaries enabled, you’d be able to quickly see the total number of tasks, hours logged, or whatever metric for each of those priority levels. The summary footers give you the key stats you need at a glance.
