How to amend or pin your favourite boards or groups to the 'washing line'

The 'washing line' is the line of icons visible across the top of your page in GovernorHub. You click on the hanging icons on the 'washing line' to toggle between the accounts that are visible to you.

There could be icons for:

  • any board and/or group you're a member of

  • services your board subscribes to

  • the news page

  • the clerking dashboard My Hub (if you're a busy admin or clerk)

If you have too many icons (12+) and run out of space across the width of the screen, we will compress your boards, groups and services into one My Groups icon.

The My Groups icon

The My Groups icon is where you access all of your boards and groups in one place. All your accounts are included here, so you don't need to choose which ones to show/hide on the washing line.

However you might still want to pin some of your favourite boards back on to the washing line for convenience.

To do this, click on your name at the top of the screen, to go to your profile page (click on your name at the top of the screen), next click on the settings tab and then the washing line tab.

Here you will see a list of your boards, groups and services. At this stage, the washing line is still in the Default settings mode - this means nothing is pinned yet and all boards are still under the My Groups icon.

To change which icons you can see

To start pinning or customising your washing line, toggle the Default settings switch to Custom settings.

You can now start clicking the + button to choose which boards or groups to pin to the washing line.

Pinned items appear at the top pf this section, icons still hidden are shown underneath.

You can have 12 items on the washing line and we help you count how many you've pinned and how many you have left.

If you'd like to REMOVE a group from your line, you can simply click the minus (-) button next to the group you'd like to remove.

Don't forget to pin your My Groups icon so you still have easy access to any hidden boards and groups.

Your new custom washing line will update immediately at the top of the page.

You can go back in to change these settings at any time.
