If you’ve already created a board, you can open Boards using the App Bar. If you don’t see the Apps Bar to the right of your screen, you can access boards using the product menu in the top left corner of Mattermost.
From Mattermost Boards v7.2, you can organize your boards in the left-hand sidebar using custom categories. By default, all boards will appear under the Boards category. To manage your categories, open the menu next to the category to create, delete, or rename a category. With the exception to the default Boards category, all other categories can be renamed or deleted.
If you delete a category with boards in it, then those boards will return to the default Boards category.
Categories are organized per-user, so you can arrange your boards under categories that make sense to you without impacting boards or categories for other users. If a board is moved to a custom category, then the board will appear under that category for you only. Other users who are members of the board will continue to see the board in their own categories.
Upgrading to Mattermost Boards v7.2 onwards: If you belonged to a workspace prior to v7.2, you’ll see that the workspaces have been migrated to custom categories in the sidebar. All boards from a workspace are listed under a category of the same name. Boards from direct messages and group messages appear under the default Boards category.
Categories are per-user, and can be renamed or deleted by each user after migration. New users won’t have default categories, and boards they join will appear under the default Boards category.
Boards that you create after the migration won’t be linked to a workspace and will always appear under the default Boards category unless you move or hide the boards.
You can move both sidebar categories and boards and change the order of both to suit your preference. You can:
Set the position of a board within a category.
Drag a board out of one category and drop it into another category.
To do this, select and hold the cursor over the category or board name. Then move the category or board around as needed. Boards moved into a category are sorted to the top of the category by default unless you specifically position the board before releasing the cursor.
Delete board: If you’re an admin of the board, you will see an option to delete the board. Deleting the board permanently removes the board from the sidebar of all board members.
Duplicate board: Creates a copy of the board and all the cards on the board. The duplicated board will appear under the same category as the original board. Board members and comments from the original board aren’t migrated to the new board.
New template from board: Creates a custom board template of the board and all the cards on the board.
Hide board: Hides the board from your sidebar only. The board will still remain visible on the sidebar for other board members. You can add the board back to your sidebar using the search box (CMD+K/CTRL+K).
From the top of the boards left hand sidebar, select the Find Boards field (CMD+K/CTRL+K) to open the board switcher, and start typing the name of the board you’re looking for.
