When you access your board’s settings by clicking on the “settings” button, you’ll have access to the features you can use on your board.

Whether you are new here or want to know more about each one of the features you can use on your board, this article is for you!

Here are each one of the features you can use. Plus, a brief description of each one of them:

Facilitator controls

Hide cards: When you use this feature, you'll hide all the card's information. You and the participants will only be able to see your own cards. As the board's owner, you can use the "Show cards only for me" feature. With this feature, you can reveal all cards just for you.

Disable voting: When you use this feature, no one (including you) will be able to vote.

Hide vote count: When you use this feature, no one (including you) will be able to see the vote count.

One vote per card: When you use this feature, all the participants (including you) will be able to vote only once per card.

Presentation mode: When you use this feature, you’ll hide your votes, so when you share your screen, participants won’t be able to see where you voted. If you are not the Owner of the board and use this feature, the menu of your cards will also be hidden.
