Private Boards

Last modified:


Private Boards are visible only to users added by Board Owner to it. They are not visible or accessible to users which are not added. You must be added by Board Owner to become a member or visitor in this Board.

1. Adding a Private Board

Simply click + (Add Board Button) in any Board Group. 

While creating a Board, select Private Board from the dropdown menu.

In case you are adding a Board with a similar name to other existing Boards, you will be asked if you are sure about creating your Board. Click on Continue.

A newly created Board won't be indicated as a Public one.

If a Board is private, it won't be indicated on your KanBo Home (while you look on the board tiles). Only public boards are indicated by special information on tiles.

2. Adding users to Board as Owners, Members and Visitors.

The Board won't be visible on the Personal KanBo Home until you got added to it as Owner, Member and Visitor by a Board Owner and add the Board itself to the Personal KanBo Home.

Here you can learn how to add users to Board.

Once you get added to a Private Board, you will get a pop-up "Discover Boards" indicating that you can add the Board to Personal KanBo Home.
