Hide or Promote a Board

Customize the way you view your Boards within the Boards drop-down menu with the Hide and Promote Actions.

Two Line OfieNOTE: Only Users with the Superuser User Type will be able to access the Hide or Promote actions for a Board.


Hide any Board that is not relevant to your work in KaiNexus and Promote a Board to give it visibility in the Board drop-down menu for easy navigation. Together these functions can really help clean up and simplify how you navigate your Boards in KaiNexus. 

At a glance:

  • Only Users with the Superuser User Type can Hide or Promote a Board.
    • Users with a System Role that grants them the Board Administrator advanced permission can also Hide or Promote a Board from the Manage Boards window.
  • Choose to Hide any Board that is not relevant to your work in KaiNexus to make sure you are only seeing the Board(s) you need.
    • You can still access a hidden Board by either clicking a link to the Board, viewing the Board within the Manage Boards window, or by searching for it in the Search Bar.
  • Use Promote to bring Boards that may be nested several levels deep in the Board drop-down menu to the top-level for quick and easy access.
    • If there are any Boards nested underneath the promoted Board, they will also be promoted along with that Board. 

Two Line OfiePRO TIP: These changes are a User preference, meaning that hiding or promoting Boards will only affect how you see them in KaiNexus and will not affect the Board’s visibility for other Users.
