Frequently asked questions

What is MyBoard?

Starting as a small, personal, web app to keep track of links for possible houses whilst house-hunting, MyBoard has now grown to a fully functional and useful organisational tool. 

From educational tools, to portfolios, to shopping lists, MyBoard is a great and easy way to keep track of multiple pieces of information in one place and share with others or just use privately.

How can I customise my boards?

Boards have a few customisation options. By default you can edit the board title, description, background image, and background colour. Users that upgrade to MyBoard Plus get a few more options such as custom slugs, and custom overlay options.

Can I share my boards?

By default, you can invite 1 person to each of your boards. With the powerful user permissions users invited to boards can manage cards, manage other users, or manage the board itself.

Those that upgrade to MyBoard Plus can invite an infinite number of other users to boards and can make boards publicly available for anyone to discover.

What are public boards?

Public boards are an incredibly useful board option, allowing you to create and share out in the open. Public boards can be searched via our public search and easily shared or embedded into other blogs/websites.

Some great uses for public boards could be:
  • A work portfolio
  • Educational resources for students
  • A single source for affiliate links

Free MyBoard users can create one public board, with the ability to create more as you subscribe to different tiers

How do I find boards?

Finding boards is easy for users and non-users alike. The powerful search page searches all boards, cards, and pages with your search term.

Are there any example boards?

Sure, we have a few boards we've created as examples for MyBoard's usefulness, as well as a couple of boards that we actively manage and use.

What kind of cards can I add to my boards?

By default, there are 3 available cards you can add to your boards. These are:
  • Links
  • Notes
  • Albums

Those that upgrade to MyBoard Plus get access to 3 more card types for even more customisation. These are:
  • Files
  • Locations
  • Checklists

How can I customise my dashboard?
