Creating a Storyboard
Creating a new Storyboard is easy! You can do so using a tablet or your web portal - my.kaymbu.com.
*Storyboards are not available via the phone app as phone screens are much too small for an enjoyable creation process. Of course, you can always capture your observations using your phone app and use another platform to curate your content as a Storyboard!*
To make a new Storyboard, go to Menu > Storyboards
Select "New Storyboard" and type your Storyboard Title
Add new sections to your storyboard by clicking on the large "+" icon and choosing a section type. You can keep adding sections to create a layout that fits your needs!
Adding Images, Video, Text, and Attachments
To add images or video, select one of the layouts that includes an image placeholder.
Tap on the image placeholder to load your Moments. Choose the Moment you'd like to add, trim it so it fits in your selected image section type, and select Save!
You can also upload your own Media if you have content outside of your Kaymbu account that you'd like to pull into your Storyboard!
If you wish to add text, click on the “Tap to edit text” option.
Remember, you can keep adding section types to extend your Storyboard by clicking the "+" button at the bottom of the screen!
If you change your mind about the layout, the modules are easy to move around! Simply click on the "Rearrange" icon on the left of the section type, scroll to the area you'd like that section type to move to, and select "Move Here."
If you want to completely delete particular sections of a Storyboard you have created, select the trash can icon to the right of that section.
Sending and Saving Storyboards
When you're done creating a Storyboard, you might choose to save it for internal reference or share it with families and/or colleagues.
Teachers - Keep in mind Directors and Administrators can always access teacher Storyboards, so there's no need to send a Storyboard to your Director!
To Save for Internal Reference:
Click "Done" in the bottom left corner
If you'd like to save the Storyboard outside of the Kaymbu system, click "Create PDF" in the bottom right corner.
Select the "Email" button in the bottom right corner.
To choose recipients connected to your Kaymbu account, click the "+" button. You can also type in any email addresses stored outside of the Kaymbu system if you'd like to send the Storyboard to anyone else!
Choose your recipient(s) and select Done.
