It's very easy to create a new board. You can do in two ways. This first one is:

Click on the '+' red button on the bottom right of your screen



Alternatively, you can:

On you Gmail sidebar menu, find "Drag Boards" and click on the '+' icon next to it



Independently on the option you chose, the next steps will be:

Select if you want to add an empty board or a Shared Inbox.

If you add an empty board

In this case, after inputting the new board name, you will be redirected to the new board. This board will start empty. You will then be ready to share it with your team, customize your columns, drag emails into it or add new tasks.

If you add a Shared Inbox

If you chose to add a Shared Inbox, you will be redirected to the following steps:

Gmail authentication popup. This is to prove that you have the credentials to access that account.
Drag permissions popup. The same permissions Drag needed to connect to your account will now need to be provided to the Shared Inbox.
Shared Inbox will load. All emails will load on the first column. The remaining ones will be blank.

When you add a Shared Inbox, new emails will load automatically in the first column of the board.

You will then be ready to share this Shared Inbox with your team, customize your columns, drag emails into it or add new tasks.

A Shared Inbox needs to be a Gmail or G Suite user, with login and password. Google Groups cannot be linked to a Drag board (coming soon).
