How to Navigate Boards

Navigating from one Board to another is wheelhouse behavior for working in KaiNexus. In saying that, there are now several different ways you can navigate to your Boards. We’ve made it as simple as we can to ensure that you can navigate to where you need to go in the easiest way possible. Here are all of the ways you can navigate to a Board in KaiNexus.

Board Drop-Down Picker

Using the Board drop-down picker, you can click to open up a menu of all your top-level Boards. Hovering over these Boards will open up a sub-menu showing all of the Boards nested underneath that Board. Click on any of the Boards to be taken to that respective Board.

NOTE: If you click on a Board that you do not have access to within that drop-down menu and you are not able to see that Board, then a message will appear to explain why.


Manage Boards Window

Within the Board drop-down picker, at the bottom of the top-level, you will see a . This will pull up a window that gives you a high-level view of all your Boards within the system that you have access to. Click on any of the names of the Boards shown to take you to that specific Board. For more information on managing your Boards, check out this support page!


Board Breadcrumbs

Board Breadcrumbs are displayed at the top of the Board listed to the right of the blue Board drop-down menu. Previously, this would only show the name of the Board that the current Board was nested under to which you could easily navigate back to. Now, we have made it to where these breadcrumbs show all nested Boards under the current Board as well as other nested Boards under the parent Board. 

Clicking the names of each of these Boards will take you directly to that Board. Clicking the will open up a drop-down menu, where you can navigate to all of the Boards, visible to you, that are nested under the parent Board.

Searching for a Board

At the top of the simple header toolbar, you have your main Search bar. From here, you can enter in the name of a Board that you are looking for. When you pull up the search window, you even have the option to check the Boards only search filter to help pull up your desired result quicker.

Getting a Link to a Board

If you Share a Board, you are given the web-link to that Board. Clicking that link will take you directly to that Board. 

NOTE: If you click on a link to a Board that you do not have access to, then a message will appear to explain why.
