2. Give your board a name: Boards can serve to organize materials for an entire project or a space within a project. It could be Lujiazui Tower or Conference Room A... the sky is the limit. Enter notes and select a mood image.

3. Once the Board is set-up, click on 'Materials' in the top bar.

4. On the materials...

As a material provider:
1. Upload a mood / inspiration image that represents your company culture.
2. Post and link your materials (and projects).
3. Manage and edit your company contact(s).
