What are Boards?

Like a whiteboard with instant chat, Boards are HostJane’s work tool to help you organize tasks, store files, track updates and see a bird’s eye view of your work progress.

Boards are an integral part of the HostJane Workspace

Useful for diverse projects from web development to online lessons, Boards let you create lists and cards of sticky notes to organize tasks and collaborate together more effectively.

Each list and card can be moved and is centrally tracked. Add labels, leave comments, upload attachments, add photos and documents with custom labels for each card.

Each time a milestone is reached or the board changes, tracker ensures both Seller and Buyer are kept up to date.

In messaging and order chats, check marks appear next to each message you send with the timestamp of sending.

Here’s what they mean:

Single check

The message was successfully delivered to user

Double check

For audit and transparency purposes, read receipts cannot be turned off.

Can I hide my ‘last seen’?

Can I delete my messages?
