You can use sections to create beautiful and organized boards.
What is a section?
A section is a specific area of your board used to present your content in an organized and visual design.
Each board is pre-designed in a layout of modular sections with specific use cases in mind. However, you can also create a custom layout by mixing and matching sections or adding new sections from the Folloze OOTB Section Gallery as many times as you like on a board. You can also delete a section entirely.
To help you fully design your boards, Folloze has provided you with preset sections to choose from:
- Feature can be used to showcase your agenda, core values, products, services and more in columns or with text and image or in an interactive carousel. Or, add a form to your board.
- Content sections can be used to display blocks of content items.
- Banner allows you to design the top part of the board.
- Team sections can be used to introduce your company’s team members in columns or with text and image or in an interactive carousel.
- Testimonials can be used to present testimonials on your board.
- Header & Footer sections allow you to add a header or footer to your board.
- Images sections add to the visual presentation of your board.
- Custom allows you to add an embedded section to your board.
