Note: if you don't see the Board Background icon (Image 1) on your account, means you are running on version 5.17 that is maintenance mode only. To add a background to your dashboard, please refer to the following article (5.17).

1. How to personalize your Board Background?
With the Board background feature, you can make your workflow more stylish and flamboyant by adding an image or set a color as a background of your board.
You can upload the image from the great selection of quality photos available in the Unsplash gallery we are now integrated with.
Note: This feature is available only with versions higher than 6.0.
1.1 To access it, go to the sidebar at the right side of your board interface and select the "Board Background" button. (Image 1)
1.2 A new panel opens up at the right side of your board interface (Image 1)
- From the top "Boards Colors" panel, users can select a color that will instantly appear as a background of your board.
- To upload an image -> select one of the visible photos or use the Search option to look up for a photo by certain criteria. For example, if you are searching for "landscapes" images, you can search using "landscapes" as a keyword to filter the photos.
Select the image you like most -> click on it and it will appear discretely behind your board layout in contrast with the section/columns, lanes and cards.
Note: To remove the background image or color, just select the white color from the color palette.
2. Boards visualization on the dashboard
The boards ordering on the dashboard is optimized for better visibility and overall structure.
The boards are placed two in a row below the project and the background you’ve chosen is also reflected there.
