In this article, we’re going to explain how to use our ‘Boards’ feature.

What are Boards

Boards is a feature of Just3Things which helps you collate data and present it in a simple and effective way with commentary and visualisation, highlighting all the information you need across various teams in one place.

How to access this feature:

  1. Log in to Just3Things

  2. On the left hand navigation, you should see ‘Boards’

  3. Underneath this, you will see subheadings of individual folders, inside which are individual boards. For example, Marketing Stats as a folder, with monthly updates inside

  4. If you click ‘Boards’ on the left hand side, you will get a pop up directory of all boards folders

  5. Clicking a board folder will then take you to the last page published in that folder. You will also be able to navigate other ‘pages’ within the folder on the left hand side navigation

  6. If you would like to add a new ‘page’, you will see the ‘add page’ underneath all previously created pages

  7. Alternatively, you can add a new board by selecting ‘Add New’ in the left hand side navigation, and selecting

Using Boards

So you’ve found the boards section of Just3Things. First things first, you have to name your page.

In the header you will see who, and how many people are on your board (Similar to Google Doc’s layout).

In the top right hand corner, you will see the kebab menu (aka the three dots.) On this dropdown you will see various options for the page, including the ability to share, duplicate, delete, and preview.

On the board itself, there will automatically be a text box (which you can delete), in which you can add any information you might need - in this example, perhaps some marketing stats from Google Analytics.

In the text box you can also add links and imagery via the text box toolbar.

The plus icon can be hovered over to add another text box, an OKR, or a spacer.

Any OKR you have access to can be added via this method, and all key results from the objective will also be pulled.

(In the kebab menu at the top of the page, you can select expand all, for the OKRs on said board).

Pages will be autosaved as you edit so no need to worry about losing your progress.

You can add additional editors to collaborate on the same page via the kebab menu.

If there is more than one editor on the page, the page will lock for 2 minutes while you are adding to it.

We’ve also removed ‘historic/live’ mode. Instead, you can now see past edits made to a board. Deleted something accidentally, or want to check on data from a few weeks ago? You will now be able to find those details easily under Version History.
