How can I share a board with others?

To share a board with one or multiple people, you need to first open Sharing Settings, which you can do:

1. Within Google Drive

Select the board you want to share by right-clicking on its name in Google Drive. Then click on the Share Button.

2. Within Kanbanchi 

Click on the Share button at the top right corner of a board and you will see familiar Google Drive Sharing.


Define permissions for the invited members. Click on the drop-down menu near them and select Editor, Commentor or Viewer. Then click on Done.

You can allow people to edit, comment or view your board just by giving them a URL for the board from the address bar of your browser. However, you will first need to make sure that your board is available to Anyone with the link.

Click on the Share button, then click on Advanced at the bottom right corner of the appeared screen. In the Who has access section, click on Change and select the Anyone with the link option. Customise Access: Anyone (no sign-in required) at the bottom of the Link sharing, if you want to let people view your board (Can view), edit it (Can edit) or only comment your cards (Can comment).

Note: After you change permissions, feel free to a URL from the browser address bar to a person  https://kanban-chi.appspot.com/dashboard/xxxxxx/d-xxxxxx), as the generated shareable link provided by Google in Google sharing screen doesn’t work to open Kanbanchi boards.
