Dashboard Overview

Your Dashboard

Your dashboard is your organization space in Metro Retro. You can navigate through it with the blue left navigation panel.
Your teams and boards are grouped into Workspaces. Workspaces you belong to are displayed in the left panel, which is also your primary navigation between workspaces, folders and boards.
In your dashboard you can create boards, view recent boards, join or create workspaces and invite new team members.
Navigate to different team workspaces with the left menu
  • Your user profile can only belong to one Organization account currently. We will enable multi-Organization switching in the future. In the meantime, you can leave a team from your Preferences menu in the top right (cog icon) to join a new one.

All Boards

The All Boards is the default landing page in your dashboard. From here you can see all the boards you’ve visited or have access to within your organization space.
You can quick-create boards from here using the buttons at the top. Any boards created when in All Boards can be accessed by anyone in the Account. If your plan includes workspaces you can move boards for privacy.
Your boards are ordered by most recently visited, handy that.

Private Boards

Your private boards area is like a workspace, but only you can access it. Private Boards is disabled on Free plans.
You can invite people to boards you create here, but all visitors must 'knock' to request access to participate on the board. You must be on the board when they request access. If you want your boards to be automatically editable by others, move the board to a shared workspace.

Legacy Dashboard

The Legacy Dashboard link takes you back to v1 - the first version of Metro Retro. It will only be shown if you have visited boards in v1.

Template Library

Here you can preview and use all the standard and custom templates in your Organization. Any boards placed in the Template Library will be available to everyone in the Organization to use as a custom template when they create a board.

Live Now

The Live Now view shows you team members online now, and 'Live' boards from public workspaces and the workspaces you belong to. Boards you do not have access to will not be displayed here.


Workspaces are how you organize your teams and boards. They can be open (public) or hidden (private) within the Organization.
Workspaces are available to teams on all plans, except for the Free plan.

Admin Area

Anyone with the Admin or Owner role can access the Admin area by clicking on the Organization name in the bottom left.
