What's the difference between boards, folders and workspaces?
- A board is the place where your groups of items are held. It's a virtual whiteboard where projects are stored as a way to keep track of everything from everyday tasks to month/year long projects... but so much better! Check out this article to learn more about boards.
- A folder is simply a storage space for boards. Folders make it easy to organize all of your boards so that your account can stay neat and clean.
- Workspaces are here to help your organization better manage multiple departments, teams and projects in one unified place. They provide your account with a hierarchy of organization, allowing you to keep everything orderly as you seamlessly scale your account.
