Collaborating with others and gathering feedback is an essential, but often challenging part of the storyboarding process. 

Boords helps take the stress out of collaboration by offering a variety of ways to share your storyboards and animatics with others. 

You can either: 

  • Send a link

  • Add another person as a teammate on your team

  • Share a storyboard PDF file 

  • Or share an animatic as an MP4 file 

Shareable link

Using the shareable link is a quick and simple way to share your work and collect feedback from others. 

First, open the storyboard you want to share and click the Share button.

Before sending the link to others, you’ll be able to add or remove a password, enable comments, set the layout view and decide whether you want to share your work as a storyboard or as an animatic. 

Copy the link, then send it to clients, colleagues or anyone you want to share your work with! 

They’ll see your storyboards or animatic in the shareable view and can add their feedback by leaving comments on frames.

Invite a Teammate 

If you want another person to have access to edit your storyboards, you’ll need to add them as a team member. This would involve setting up a team plan (Group, Agency or Powerhouse).  

To invite a teammate, first, click your profile image in the top right-hand corner of the Project Dashboard. From the dropdown menu, select Invite people

Choose whether you'd like to add full or restricted access users (or a combination of both!). For more information about the difference between the two, check out this article.

Then, invite your team members to join your team! Enter their email address to send them an invitation via email. 

When they accept, you can choose the level of access you’d like to allow them. Learn more about setting up a team account here.

PDF Exports

To download your storyboard as a PDF file, click Download in the panel above the storyboard, then select PDF.

Customise your PDF by choosing a frame layout, adding your logo and adding a personal front & back cover

MP4 Renders 

When you've completed an animatic, you can download it as an MP4 file.

Click Download > Animatic.

Start a new render or download the latest version of the animatic onto your device.
