Find your frames faster with our new File Manager

upload-sources

You can now connect your existing file storage services like Dropbox and Google Drive directly to your Boords account, meaning it’s never been simpler to create and share storyboards, wherever you keep your images. Not only that, but you can also make storyboards with a Google Image search or your by using your webcam, without ever having to leave the app. Happy days!

Allowing guests to edit comments

guest-comment-edit

If you often receive feedback using the Boords shareable link, you’ll know that sometimes comments need revision. That’s why we’ve now added the ability for Guest commenters to edit comments they themselves have made.

It’s important to note that guests will only be able to edit their commments from now on, not retrospectively.

Custom PDF footer logos

If you have a Plus or a Team plan, you can now add a custom logo to the footer of your PDFs (or indeed choose to hide the logo altogether).

Just click “Download” on a given storyboard, then upload a logo in the “Footer logo” section. From there you’ll just need to select a JPG file and you’re away.

Portrait PDF layouts

We’ve just launched a brand new portrait PDF template, specifically designed to be printed out and stuck up on your wall. The margins are a little tighter than on our landscape templates to pack as much information onto the printed page as is practical. Portrait layouts are an oft-requested feature (and are for many the classic way a storyboard should be laid out), so we hope the new template will come in handy.
