Attaching Files to Cards

My Boards

Kudos Boards allows files under 20mb to be attached to cards directly.

Anyone who has access to view the card will be able to view and download the attachment.

This feature can be disabled organisation wide by an administrator if desired.

Office 365 (OneDrive) & HCL Connections (Files)

If you use Office 365 or HCL Connections as your authentication method, you may also upload files to those services directly, in this case the files and security will be managed by your respective provider. Kudos Boards will only save a link to open these.

Open your desired card, click the + next to Links and Attachments

In the menu that appears, choose Upload.

Locate the file(s) you wish to attach and click open, Kudos Boards will examine the selected files and prompt you where to upload them as below. choose Upload to Kudos Boards and click Upload.

Your file will now appear in the Links and Attachments list.

Removing an Attached File

To remove an attached file, hover over the file in the card and click the X to remove the link. The file will be deleted and the link will no longer work. Please ensure you still have a copy of the file if needed before doing this.

Who Can Remove Files?

Anyone who can edit the card can also remove the attached files.

Where are Files Stored?

Files attached to cards in Kudos Boards Cloud with Auth0, Google, Facebook, LinkedIn authentication providers are stored in Google Cloud Storage

If you are hosting Kudos Boards yourself then files are stored in the default file storage as defined in your environment.
