Updating Your Welcome Message
Updated over a week ago

Your welcome message is what each new user sees whenever they access your board. A good welcome message should reflect your goals and help users get started with the basics.

P.S. To be able to complete the following steps, you’ll need to have an admin account for the desired Viima board. Please contact your Viima super user for access if you don’t already have an account.

How to get there

If you already know your board name, the easiest way to change your welcome message is through the following URL:

If you do this, proceed directly to Step 2. Otherwise, start from Step 1.

Step 1:

On your Viima Admin account, Go to "Settings" in the admin portal of your board.

Step 2:

Go to the "Communication" sub-section and select the "Welcome message" panel.

Step 3:

From here, you can manage your welcome message.

What to change

Now you should have the view from Step 3 open.

You can enable or disable your welcome message from the “Enable welcome” checkbox. (We highly recommend keeping this enabled) The title and message itself can be written into the text fields below the checkbox.

Try to make your welcome message as descriptive as possible about:

  • The theme

  • Motivation

  • Goals

  • The process (schedule, decision-making...)

  • Concrete action points for the participants

If you wish to use images or videos in conveying your message, you can add these by uploading them from the “Choose file” button next to “Attachments.” (We recommend doing so, as visual aid often helps catch interest)

Example message:


Let's come up with new ideas for [use case]


Welcome to use Viima! This is the place where all of our ideas related to [use case] will be stored, shared, and developed further. In order to get familiar with the tool, you can simply examine it yourself or start an interactive tutorial from behind the user menu on the top right-hand corner of the screen.

All kinds of ideas are welcome, be they incremental or radical, this platform will give them a chance to grow and develop to a whole new level by getting input from colleagues around the organization. The best ideas will be picked up for testing and prototyping, after which it is time to evaluate their business potential.
