What are the different types of boards?Last Updated: February 13, 2020
When creating your new board you'll realise you have 4 different options to choose from, as shown below. Each of these board types will be covered in this article.
1 ) The blank board
This board is exactly what it sounds like, completely blank. It's good for anyone that wants to build a board specifically to their liking or if it's your first time using the boards feature, it's a good testing ground. See Image below to see what the blank board will look like:
2) The ticketing board
This board comes ready to help you keep your email organised. When created it will have an "unassigned" column, a column for each user of the board, and a closed column. Just like the blank board this too can be customised to your preference. You can see an example of a ticketing board below:
3) The get things done board
This is another pre-made board. Rather than it being split into the separate board users, it splits the columns into stages of completions. So from emails come in to the shared inbox, then "to-do", "in progress" and so on. Just like the previous board types all of the columns are of course customisable and can be automated. See image below for an example of this board:
4) Saved templates
If you already have a board that you've put a lot of time an effort into customising and you'd like to duplicate it, this is the option for you.
You'll first need a template though, so head over to the board you want to duplicate and save the board as a template. Now you can create an all new board with the same customisation as the previous one.
