Improved Board Administration

We’re excited to share some significant updates that aim to enhance the board administration experience. In this article, we will delve into these updates, focusing on the introduction of a check-out system on both the main configuration level and widget level.

In the past, only one administrator could update the Ichicraft Boards configuration at a time. This often led to delays and required constant communication among team members. To address this, we’ve introduced a feature that allows multiple administrators to update the Ichicraft Boards configuration simultaneously.

Main Configuration Check-Out

The main configuration of Ichicraft Boards includes various elements such as design settings, board templates, general settings, and more. Administrators can now check-out the main configuration, make necessary changes, and then check it back in. This ensures that the changes are saved and applied consistently across the board.

Widget-Level Check-Out

In addition to the main configuration, each widget on the board has its own separate check-out system. This means that administrators can check-out a specific widget, make changes to it, and then check it back in without affecting the rest of the board. This granular level of control lets you focus on enhancing individual widgets without affecting the overall configuration.

Discarding Others’ Check-Out Changes

In a collaborative environment, there may be times when you need to revert changes made by others. To facilitate this, we’ve added a feature that allows you to discard check-out changes made by others. This ensures that unwanted changes can be easily reverted, maintaining the integrity of the board configuration.

Selective Saving of Configuration Changes

We believe in giving our administrators control over their work. That’s why we’ve added a feature that lets administrators select which sections of their draft configuration they want to save or discard. This selective saving option provides you with greater control over your configuration changes and helps prevent unintended modifications.

Persistent Draft Configuration Changes

We understand how frustrating it can be to lose unsaved changes due to unexpected browser reloads or session timeouts. To mitigate this, we’ve made it possible to maintain draft configuration changes between browser sessions/reloads. This means that your hard work is always saved, giving you peace of mind and allowing you to pick up right where you left off.


These enhancements are part of our ongoing commitment to improving the Ichicraft Boards experience. By making board administration more efficient and user-friendly, we hope to empower administrators and foster a more collaborative working environment. We believe these changes will greatly simplify the task of board administration and provide administrators with more control and flexibility.

We’re excited about these updates and look forward to seeing how they transform your board administration experience. Stay tuned for more updates as we continue to innovate and enhance Ichicraft Boards!
