What is a board?
An Upwave Board is a shared canvas where Board members can collaborate on projects, tasks, ideas, issues, etc. Read more about boards here.

Your first Board
If you are invited to a workspace, but not to a specific team or board, this is the screen you will see when you log in for the first time. What you see here is your dashboard.

To create your first board, click on the "New board"-button. 

When you create a board, you have to choose which template you want to use.  You can start with a blank board, a simple to-do list, or a more advanced template, like Business Model Canvas. If you want more information about a template before choosing, you can click "See more details" under the template. 

When you have decided on a template, give the board a name and click "Create Board". This Board is private and will be visible to you and the members you invite to your Board.

If you are on a Business or Enterprise subscription, you will have the option to make the Board a Team Board. This means that the Board will be added to a specific Team. In this case, you need to select a visibility setting and which team you want to create the board in.

You are now ready to start adding tasks to your board.

Now that you've got the basics covered, it's time to start collaborating!
