Managing your Boards

A Board is a place to organize and save your favorite files for future reference. Here are some tips on managing and organizing your Boards:

The easiest way to save files to a Board is while you're searching. As soon as you have an active board set up, you can add files to it from the search results page or by clicking through to the file's detailed information page. Simply look for the plus sign on the image or for the "Save to Board" link below your video clip to add a file to a Board.

You can create new Boards or access all of your Boards from the Boards panel that can be opened by clicking on "Your Board" in the header.

To view your Boards, choose "View all" in the Boards panel select menu, or click on "Your Boards" in the sliding side account panel. All of the Boards that you've created and the ones shared with you will be listed - simply click on the Board row to view its contents.

Let others collaborate with you on your Board by clicking the "Share" button to create a unique URL you can copy and share.

If you've got files in a Board that you're ready to download, simply click each file's thumbnail to go to the detailed information page to download the file.
