Welcome to Cronycle – your collaborative research platform. With Cronycle you can create interest boards which you can share and collaborate on with colleagues and clients. You can clip articles, comment and add notes to Boards. You can also add images, videos, pdf’s, excel’s and documents. The following guide will teach you how you can upload files to your Cronycle Board.
Create a board
Once you’ve logged into your Cronycle account, go to your Boards menu. If you’ve previously created a Board or you are currently following someone else’s Board you can access them here in this menu. If this is your first time with Boards then this menu will be empty.
To start a new board click on ‘create new board’ on the top right-hand side of the menu. A menu will appear.
Choose a name for your board. Remember it is important to name your board with context to the project or team you’re working with.
Within the create new board box you can choose a team to your Board. You can choose to invite a collaborator team or/and follower team. All depends on what you’re trying to achieve. A collaborator team allows you to invite others to contribute to boards. A followers team allows you to invite others to boards as read-only members.
If you have not yet created a team, you can create a new one by going to your profile page. Then creating a new follower/collaboration team there. Simply give you new team a name, then invite others by entering their email, or their Cronycle username.
Go back to your boards and click on the boards you would like to add new team members to. Click on the settings cog on the top right of the selected board. Add new team members to a board.
Cronycle Boards allows you to upload a variety of different files. The aim is to allow our users to build a rich database of knowledge in a dedicated collaborative space.

Uploading files allow you to populate your boards with rich information that will facilitate your research and improve collaboration with your team.
