 Note: You cannot move a board if you are not the owner of it. You will need to ask the owner of that board to make this change.

 

How to organize your boards?

Having a well organized left panel is super important. We're anti-clutter here at monday.com, we believe that having better visibility of your boards will make your time with the platform more on point. Here are a few tips to achieving anti-clutter status:  

  • Drag boards to organize them the way you want

Simply click on the board’s name, drag it to where you want it to be placed and drop it. For example, you can sort your boards in alphabetical or chronological order.

  • Use the folders to store your different boards.

A folder is a way to group and organize boards relating to the same projects, clients or project managers so that your account can stay neat and clean. Once your folder is created, you just need to click on the name of the board (on the left panel) you want to add to it and drag it under the name of your folder of choice. Check out this article to learn more about folders.

  • Put your high level boards on the top

If you are using high-level boards, we recommend you to put them at the top of your boards list to make them more visible to all your team members.
