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 may be opened in one of two ways:

1. Within Google Drive

Open your Drive. Select the board you want to share by clicking on the Dashboard’s name in Google Drive. Then click on the Share Button  in the upper menu of the provided screen.

2. Within Kanbanchi dashboard.

Click on the blue Share button at the top right corner of a dashboard.

These actions will lead you to the standard Google Drive Sharing Settings. To inform Google Drive of who can access the file, enter the Email Address of the person(s) you would like to share the board in the field underneath the Invite section of the screen.

Here you can also choose permissions for the invited members. Click on the drop-down menu near this field and select Can edit, Can comment or Can view. Then click on Send.

You are able to 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 certain that your board is available to Anyone with the link.

Click on the Share button, then click on Advanced at the bottom of 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 just only comment your cards (Can comment).

The generated shareable link is provided by Google and never works to open Kanbanchi boards. To share a dashboard with others (after you change permissions), you need to send a URL from the browser address bar.

So, the right link will look like this:

https://kanban-chi.appspot.com/dashboard/xxxxxx/d-xxxxxx
