Boards, columns and cards: The building blocks of your workflows

Drag boards are where emails and tasks get organized, information is shared, and great work happens.

Made up of lists and cards, they give everyone a shared perspective on the work getting done and what still needs to get done.

You and your team can create and use Drag boards to manage customers, projects, leads or anything else.

With the Drag Pro plan, you can create as many boards as you want and share with unlimited team members. The free version includes up to 10 individual boards.

Drag boards can be used in a kanban or list view.

Adding Incoming Emails to Drag Boards

You can add incoming emails from a Shared Inbox or Google Group to a Drag board, so that new emails load in real time into boards. Otherwise, you can go for an empty board, that is not attached to any inbox or Google Group, and customize it according to your needs.

Empty Boards (no incoming emails) start empty, like a blank canvas. You can then populate them the way you want: create new cards, Drag existing cards into it, create automations to move emails into it automatically, etc. Drag boards were designed to be a flexible workspace for both individuals or teams.

Shared Inboxes are for teams that use company emails such as sales@ or support@ (with login and password) and want to manage them as a team. It was built for teams that have multiple team members that need to access incoming emails from the same inbox.

Google Groups Boards are for teams that use Google Groups as an attempt to collaborate on emails. These Groups do not have a password associated to them, they are set up as distribution lists where multiple team members receive the same emails. Drag Google Groups boards replace this confusing process by a simple, centralized, collaborative board.

Any board can be shared or used individually

Regardless of whether boards are empty or have incoming emails, they can be shared with your team.

Avoid losing communication with all back and forth emails. Share your boards with your team members and have them collaborating on the same view!
