Board Types

Modified on Tue, 05 Jul 2022 at 10:34 PM

Boards are collections of reports, organized in a specific order on the screen. This article will discuss the different collections of boards in Appature. 


Home Board

The home board is the "homepage" of Appature. It is the screen users see when they first log in. Each user can only have 1 home board.

Favorite Boards

Uses have the ability to favorite boards (see how to do so here: Favoriting boards) The "Favorite Boards" section is a collection of all boards the logged in user has favorited. 

My Boards

My Boards is a collection of all the boards that have been created by the logged in user. If you've created it, it will appear in this list. 

Canned Boards

Canned Boards are boards that have been created by Broadleaf staff and come as default options to use. They cannot be removed, but you don't have to use them, either. 

Global Boards

Global boards are boards that have been created by someone within your org and made visible to anyone within your company. They are similar to canned boards in that everyone can view them, but they are different in that they were created by your org, instead of the default boards that every user of <product> can use. 

Shared with me

Shared with me section of the boards sub-module are boards that other users have created, and shared directly with you. Similar to global boards in that they were created by someone at your org, but they have been shared with specific users, not everyone at the org.
