Editing Boards (Including Making Sections and Board Groups)

Roles: Authors


Build out and refine the architecture of your knowledge in Guru by editing Boards

How to Edit Boards

  1. In the web app (app.getguru.com), select 'Collections' from the left navigation bar and choose the Collection in which the Board you want to edit exists.

  2. Select the Board you would like to edit.

  • If the Board you would like to edit is in a Board Group, first select the Board Group, and then find and click the appropriate Board.
  1. Click 'Edit Board' once you select the Board.
  • Edit the Board's title or description by clicking on the respective text boxes.
  • Add additional Cards to the Board by searching in the right column and dragging over the Cards you would like to add. As a note, we generally recommend that Boards have no more than 50 Cards as that makes it easier for your team to scan and utilize them.
  • Add a net new Card to Guru and the Board by clicking on 'Add a New Card'.
  • Drag the Cards and Sections to change the order of Cards on the Board. This can be especially helpful when onboarding new employees because you can order the content as you would like them to go through it.
  • If you decide to delete the Board, the Cards contained within the Board will not be deleted. Once a Board is confirmed to be deleted, it cannot be recovered. To delete select 'Delete' in the top right corner and confirm the action.
  1. Remember to click 'Save' throughout your editing to preserve the changes you make, Boards do not auto-save.

How to Make Sections

  1. When editing a Board, click the 'Add Section' button. Sections allow you to further visually divide your content within a Board.
  2. Enter a title for the Section and press enter.
  3. Add Cards to the section by dragging Cards either from the Board or search area into the Section.
  • The Cards will not be added to the Section until the blue position indicator line appears.

How to Make a Board Group

  1. From the Boards menu, simply drag a Board into another Board (like you would with apps on your mobile device) and it will create a Board Group that you can name, describe, and add Boards to.
  • Board Groups allow you to group Boards, so that you can easily organize content and keep your Boards at a manageable size.
