An Upwave Board is a shared canvas where board members can collaborate on projects, tasks, ideas, issues, etc. You can look at it as a digital whiteboard with post-its. All changes on a Board are instantly visible for all participants in real-time.

A board is highly customizable. You can define your own structure with columns and rows, and upload background images for each board to give it a personal touch.

Columns & Rows

A column is often perceived as a status for Cards, where you drag & drop a card to another column to signal a change of state. Columns can be added, edited, and sorted to fit most workflows. To edit a column, press the arrow next to it. To add a new column, press the "+" symbol. 

Rows can be used to separate your cards into different categories, e.g. different rows for different marketing channels. To use rows, simply click on the “Enable rows”-button at the bottom of the screen. You can also enable or disable rows from the board settings.

Background image

Give your board a personal touch by uploading a background image.
To change the background image, click on the three dots next to the board name, choose "Board settings". Under background, you can either select a new image from the gallery or upload a file. Read more here.

Board view

Our Board View lets you toggle between different views for your projects, including Kanban board, table, timeline, and calendar. You can learn more about our Board View here.

Board types

There are two types of boards in Upwave; Board and Team Board. A Team Board is located in a specific Team, and will either be visible for everyone in your Team or for the members of the Board. Super admin can view all Team Boards, even if the visibility is set to private.  A regular Board is however not attached to a Team and will remain private until you invite people to the Board. Super admin cannot view regular Boards unless invited. Read more about board types here.
