Every board is owned by an Account
The Account Owner owns all the content on that board
You can work in your Account, or in someone else's Account
When you sign up as a new user, you get presented with some choices:
If you are signing up from a free domain, like Gmail or Outlook, you will be prompted to create your own account – unless you had been invited to join someone's board, in which case you will be automatically added to their account.
If others from your company (domain) had already signed up, we encourage you to join an existing account rather than create your own, since this makes it more likely that you will end up working with your real-life coworkers.
You aren't forced to join anyone's account when you sign up; you can always create your own account, separate from all your coworkers. This can make sense if you are from a completely different department from within the same company, and don't expect to be collaborating with others who have already signed up as Kerika users.
Every new account gets a 30-day free trial
Every new Kerika account gets a free 30 day trial, during which you can create as many boards as you liked, and share them with as many people as you like.
After your 30-day trial is over, you will still own your account, and any boards that you had previously created, and you will continue to be able to create new boards in your account. However, if you want to continue to have others work as Team Members or Board Admins, content and whiteboards – then you will need to pay for them.
Each account is associated with a specific email address:
- You can sign up with a Google ID; we will store your Kerika files in your Google Drive.
- You can sign up a Box ID; we will store your files in your Box account.
- And if you sign up directly, with any email you like; we will take care of everything for you and you don't have to deal with Google or Box.
The Final Boss
The Account Owner has ultimate authority over all boards owned by that account:
- The Account Owner can add or remove people from any board team.
- The Account Owner can change the workflow of any Task Board.
- The Account Owner owns all the files attached to boards owned by that account.
The Account Team
The Account Team consists of everyone working as a Team Member or Board Admin on any board owned by the account.
Here's an example: this Account has three boards, with a mix of Team Members and Visitors. (The Team Members are highlighted here in red circles, and the Visitors in blue circles.)
Creating new boards
Everyone who is a part of the Account Team can create new boards: these are automatically owned by that account, regardless of who created them.
Each board can be kept private or shared with the rest of the Account Team, and each board can have its own set of Board Admins, Team Members, and Visitors.>
