Boards


Overview

Boards are the pages / graphs that comprise your project. Each board contains Entities like Elements, Connections, Notes and Jumpers.

{primary} Board elements can be connected via Jumpers allowing you to break down a long flow to multiple boards.

Boards help in the organisation and structure of your project. If you are writing a book boards can correspond to the various chapters, if you are creating a game they could model the levels e.t.c. Use boards however you see fit in order to structure your project in a clear way.
