Better Board Joining (v2.52.1)
This release focuses on enhancing the participant experience when you share your boards - making it faster and more streamlined to join a board and get into the action.
Invited participants now see simplified options - join or just view the board
In addition, the release includes a few other updates:
- Multi-account joining. You can now join boards that are in other accounts without having to leave your current team. If you join another team you can switch between them from the account name in the bottom left.
- Named guests. You can use your profile to join a board as a guest, rather than being logged out and forced to use a temporary guest profile.
- Guests can claim their account. If you join a board as a temporary guest (join without signing in), you can now signup with email and password to claim that account.
- Change to paid plan invites. For paid plans, people are no longer automatically added to the team when you share a board link. Instead, they will use a guest slot, if available. To invite new members to a paid account, you must invite them from the dashboard. Note - free plans still require everyone to join the team account to participate on a board.
Reminder - easier sharing
Lastly, a reminder that since the last release you can make a board instantly editable to anyone by setting "Can be joined by" to "anyone with the link". This disables the waiting room and entry approval process:
Change the join setting to 'anyone with the link' to disable the waiting room.
That's all for now!
