What is a High Level Board?


A high-level board is a type of board that allows you to see an overview of everything you and your team are working on inside of your monday.com account. It will help you monitor your workflow whether it's projects (by quarters or months), teams, project managers, clients, etc. The high-level view can represent what ever you choose! 

How to build it?

  • Step 1: add your groups

Let's look at what a quarterly project high-level overview board would look like: in this example, the high-level board is organized in groups by quarters. Alternatively, you can also use each group as a month, a specific phase of a project and so on...


  • Step 2: Add a link column

A great way to link the high-level board with the lower-level boards is by using the Link Column (available on our Column Center). Edit the column name and input the unique URL of the lower-level board and edit the text to display. Jumping between the boards will now be seamless.  



 Note: Our platform just started to support dependencies between tasks and boards. You can check out this article to learn more about it.


  • Step 3: Add a Tag column

Another thing you are able to add to your board is a tags column (available on the PRO plan and above)! By adding a tags column to your board, you will have the ability to label and get a cross-board view of all of the items related to that particular project.


  • Step 4: Add a timeline column

Having a timeline is a great way to visually see where everything is standing. To learn more about the timeline column, click right here


Why are high level boards useful?

Having a birds eye view of what you and your team are working on at any given moment and moving forward is very powerful. You'll be able to gain better insight when taking on more projects, allocating tasks and setting deadlines.

The high-level board can be supplemented by a lower-level weekly task board or a project board. This allows you to see the overall status updates you need while your team handles the day-to-day at a more granular level.
