5 reasons to use board sections in your online whiteboards

Sections are a great way to organize your work in Conceptboard. Check out the video above for the top 5 reasons you should be using sections in your boards, and read on for some more tips!

1. Easier board navigation

Use the board outline and sections to create an easy navigation through your boards. Any multi-page pdf you drop into the board will automatically have each page added to the board outline. You can also add items on the board like images, sticky notes, and text to the outline.

2. Better visual organization

As you add content, your boards expand. Having an endless online canvas is great for allowing creativity to flourish, but it’s best to add some organization to your content as you work on the boards. Using a visual structure to organize your boards makes content easier to find.

3. Helpful welcome screens for clients and teammates

Adding a welcome screen for the board helps set the tone for the board, and it’s a great place to provide some useful information for your teammates or clients.

If you need people to give you feedback in a specific way, or want them to use a color code, add a sticky note to let them know what they need to do before they get started.

Know your company culture, but the welcome screen can be a great place to have a bit of fun!

4. Interactive presentations are great in online whiteboards

If you have a large board, use sections to create a walkthrough of your content. Your team can view the presentation on their own, and you can use the sections to hold a live presentation as well.
