⚡️ Plans: Plus & Above

While creating a new board you can add your team directly. However, you can also add them after the creation of the board.

Here's how:

Only the creator of a board can share it with other users.
  1. Next to your board name click on the blue Share icon
  1. Type in the name of a user you want to share that board with
  2. Click on + ADD USER
  3. Optional: syncing your Gmelius board with Trello will create a board on Trello that you will be able to share not only with people in and outside of your organization. See more info here
  4. Click on DONE
Your teammates will receive a notification to approve the board and you'll be ready to collaborate on it.

⚠️ Legacy Users: Migration to the new boards

If you are the owner of a board and it appears with a lock, it means that your board is still locked in the old version and it's time to switch!

Click on the board and it will unlock it and update your existing board to the new version!

All the cards and columns will remain unchanged.

The power engine behind our new boards is the Gmail (shared) label created on your left Gmail pane, which allows you to collaborate with your team and automatically route conversations to your Gmelius boards. Deleting the label will result in the deletion of your Gmelius Board
