Import Over 30 File Formats

BoardCloud will create your agenda in seconds by importing a wide variety of file formats. To speed things up, you can also clone any previous agenda.

Supported formats include Microsoft Word, EXCEL and PowerPoint as well as PDF's, images and even email threads as .MSG files.

Microsoft Word documents

Microsoft Excel documents

Microsoft PowerPoint documents

Our agenda builder supports importing of the major MS-Office document formats and PDF documents. In the case of PDF documents BoardCloud's agenda builder and document viewer allows for the display in a board pack of a single selected page as well as a range of pages from an imported PDF. It also can surface internal bookmarks from an imported PDF, into the final board pack's index.

BoardCloud has been designed to import data compressed files in the ZIP format.

The name zip was suggested by a friend of Phil Katz one of the original developers because of the speed at which files were compressed into an archive. ZIP is built-in to the Windows operating system as 'Compressed (zipped) folders'.

An imported compressed ZIP file is unpacked and inserted into an Agenda with a structure that mirrors the original folder structure that was originally compressed. All file formats supported by BoardCloud are imported as per the original folder hierarchy. Unsupported formats are ignored.

Various image formats are supported for import.

These include TIFF, JPG, PNG.

Standard text files and RTF files are supported as well.

Other Supported Formats include:


Drag and Drop Multiple File Formats

New Feature MSG file import Import Email Conversations

We have recently added support for the MSG file format. This allows for the inclusion of email message conversations or mail-trails into the agenda.  

MSG is a file format used by Microsoft Outlook and Exchange to store email messages. Saving any Outlook based message into the .msg format allows you to add a message into your agenda. Mail messages can include images and fancy formatting.
