Full-screen mode now available in Groupboard

HTML5 version of Groupboard Designer with select/move/undo

We recently updated the html5/ajax version of Groupboard Designer so that it now includes all of the Groupboard Designer features including undo/redo, select/move/delete, gridlines and DXF import. This means that you can now use Groupboard Designer on any html5-compliant web browser without needing to install java (including on iPad and Android). To try a demo, go to:

Groupboard Designer html5/ajax demo

You can access the html5/ajax version of your own hosted Groupboard by adding &ajax=true to the link.

New Groupboard facebook app

If you are on facebook, try out the new Groupboard facebook app:

Just go to the app and you will instantly have your own free Groupboard that you can invite friends to draw on.

Enhanced Groupboard control panel

We recently updated the Groupboard control panel (available to customers of paid-for hosted Groupboards), so that it now remembers the settings you enter when configuring your Groupboard. To try it out, just log on to the customer control panel:
