The files you attach can be of any type: documents, spreadsheets, presetations, video, images, zip files.... It's all good.
If you signed up using your Google ID (in other words, you are using Kerika+Google your files are automatically uploaded to your Google Drive and shared with your Team Members (who get read+write access) and your board's Visitors (who get read-only access).
As you add or remove people from your board teams, Kerika automatically makes sure everyone has the right access.
This also works great if you signed up using your Box ID (which means you are using Kerika+Box: Kerika automatically uploads your card attachment files to your Box account, and arranges for your Team Members and Visitors to get the right access to these files.
If you signed up directly with Kerika – you are relying upon Kerika to store your files for you – we use the Box Platform to store all your files for you. (You don't need to worry about how the Box Platform works; we take care of everything for you.)
And it's not just files that you can attach to cards: you can also attach any kind of Web content from your Intranet or the public Internet.
Just add a URL (using the +Web Content) button and Kerika will figure out what you are adding, and show it in the best possible way.
In this example, you can see that Kerika figured out that one particular URL was a reference to a Google Map, and so Kerika automatically shows a small, zoomable view of that location.
Also in this example, you can see that Kerika figured out that another URL that was added was for a YouTube video, so you automatically get a small (playable) thumbnail of the video.
If you working with canvases (which you can attach to individual cards on a Task Board or Scrum Board, or use as a Whiteboard) you can attach files and Web content right onto the canvas, as shown in this example.
As with adding Web content (like Google Maps, videos, images, etc.), Kerika shows a small thumbnail of the content which you can resize, and incorporate into your process flow diagram.
Not just cards and canvases: you can also attach content to the board itself.
Attaching content to a board – which could be a Kanban board, Scrum board or Whiteboard – is useful when you need to share documents, etc. that are relevant for the entire project, not just a specific card.
