Creating a new board couldn't be easier. The only complexity is knowing which board you need to create - Sprint or Kanban - as it cannot be changed once the board has been created.
To create a new board, click on the Create button in the top navigation bar and then select New Board.
You will then be presented with a form to create your new board. The top part of the form is used to capture your new board details.
You need to populate the following fields:
Board title - Use a descriptive title to easily identify your board.
Board Owners - If you are creating a board you will be added as the board owner by default. There can be multiple owners. Owners can edit the board settings, create/start/stop sprints (in a case of a Sprint board), archive Kanban tasks and edit any board tasks.
Board Members - Access to the board is limited to board members. Board members can create and edit tasks but they can't manage sprints or archive Kanban tasks.
Kanban or Sprint Board - Set the board type as Sprint or Kanban. Remember: This can not be changed later - so be sure of your board type when you create it!
Description - A description of what the board is for.
Privacy flag - If a board is set to private it will not be visible in search for anyone who is not a board member.
Yo can then directly click on the Create button to create your new board. Clicking on Create will drop you into the backlog of the board (in the case of a Sprint board) or onto the board itself (in the case of a Kanban board).
Alternatively, you can also customise your board before creating it.
