As well as all the stuff in the Stationery tab that we offer for you to play with you can also add lots of your own stuff as well.

Adding images and files to your Board

In the Stationery tab scroll down using the up/down arrows or with your mouse/trackpad and you will see a box waiting for your uploads. You can simply drag-and-drop an image or document file into the box and Ideaflip will upload it to your Board.

You can also click or touch the box and your systems finder/browser will pop up for you to locate images and files.

File types supported:

  • JPG and PNG images*

  • PDF files

  • EXCEL files

  • CSV files**

  • Max upload size: 10MB

Add a Web Page screenshot

Below the media upload box in the Stationery tab is the Web Page snapshot area. Simply enter the Web Page URL in the box and wait for Ideaflip to collect a snapshot and put it on your Board.

Tip. Be patient! Uploading and capturing Web Pages can take a while depending on the size and type of document/Web Page and how busy the servers are.

*Important note on uploading image files.

Any image that exceeds 1200 pixels in either x or y dimensions will be resized down to 1200 pixels.

**Important note on uploading CSV files.

At the moment Ideaflip handles .csv files in a very specific way and you may experience unexpected results if you do not follow this advice;

In your spreadsheet use the below columns as a template for your upload.

Column A - The Notes text - required

Column B - The Notes URL (displayed in the Details tab) - you can leave blank

Column C - The Notes notes (displayed in the Details tab) - you can leave blank

Columns D, E, F, & G - must leave blank (they are not supported for upload)

Column H - The Notes colour (Cream, Yellow, Red, Orange, Pink, Pale Pink, Purple, Blue, Light Blue, Turquoise, Green, Light Green) - if left blank will default to Cream

Columns I & J - must leave blank (they are not supported for upload)

Save the file as CSV UTF-8 (Comma Delimited)
