Creating a new board
Available to: team members
A board is an online whiteboard which you can use to work on concepts and ideas, on your own or with a team. Although each board in RealtimeBoard is endless, it's easier to navigate your projects, if each of them is being stored on a separate board.
Your boards are located in teams. If you are a member of several teams, first choose a team on the left side of the Dashboard to which a new board will belong.
To create a board, click on the big blue button on your Dashboard (please note, that the option to create board is not available if you are not a member of the chosen team or project):
The blue button to create a new board is always the first one on your dashboard.
If you have more than one team, select the team to which a new board will belong. You can select either a personal space or a team one. You will be able to move a board between different teams after that.
If you have several accounts - a certain team is always chosen.
If you choose a team and then choose a certain project within the working space - the board will also automatically belong to that very project and will be shared with the project's participants - they can be seen beside the project's name:
The dashboard shows to which project your board will belong to and to which team the project belongs.
Please note that different account types have different possibilities. If you are a member of a Free team and a paid one, you will be able to create unlimited boards in your paid account's space, but only 3 boards in your Free team. That also goes for the boards created - for instance, some features available on a board within a Company account's space will not be available on a board within a Team account's working space, even though you belong to both the accounts.
To jump-start your work, upon entering your board for the first time we will suggest using one of the templates from our library. You can skip it if you wish - you will always be able to use templates later.
Board information card
After you have created the board, you can change its title, add a description or set a cover picture in the board settings menu or add it to a project or Favorites (star it). Here you can also share, duplicate or delete the board. And you will also see when it was created or edited.
