How does it work?
Once you've signed into the Pickit platform, you can find Boards in the side menu below Guidelines on the home page for Content Administration. This is where you will start to create your first board.
After clicking on Create new board, you'll be able to name it and generate a thumbnail by selecting a background color and the font color. You can also choose if you'd like the board to be displayed full screen or use a scaled version at the center of the page. These settings are also accessible by hovering the mouse pointer over the thumbnail and clicking on the wheel icon.
After you've completed these initial settings, you can now start building your Board by adding specific sections. The sections are divided into 6 modular categories: Images, Files, Collections, Video, Text, and Separators. They all have different display options for you to choose from and they allow you to offer a unique style when showcasing your content.
When you've completed a section, it will become available in the board's menu on the top left side of your screen. You can even edit the section's name, making it very easy for users to find exactly what they're looking for.
As soon as you've finished your board it's ready to share with either all users, admins, or selected users.
We've created a Boards user guide to get you started over here.
