KanBo Home icons and sections

The KanBo Home is a starting page visible when you enter your KanBo address. Boards here are arranged by you personally as you manage Boards from there.


Let’s look on the top left corner of KanBo Home. It contains a grey vertical menu as well as a white horizontal menu.

White and the grey section

It consists of:


Boards. The default view for Boards.

Discover boards. This button will redirect you to a page where you can look for Boards in which you are added, or which are public boards. This will allow you to search for such boards and add them to your KanBo Home.


Users. This button allows you to enter User section which allows you to see Active users, Inactive Users, and Managers.

Closed Boards. This button allows you to see all Closed Boards to which you have access. You can reopen a Board from this section if you are Owner of it.

The white top menu

This button hides the menu by minimalizing it.
