The Box switcher is a mini version of the Hierarchy mode of the Overview module. It shows the Box names and the hierarchy.

Use the Box switcher to easily shift between different Boxes. Once opened, the active Box will be highlighted so you can easily switch to a sub-Box or a different Box.

You will be able to browse Boxes to which you have permissions only.

The Box switcher is displayed in the Apps header for each module and in the WBS Widget which can be added to the issue screen.

Box Details

The following information is presented for each Box on the list: 

Box ID

Box IDs consist of Box type prefix and a sequential number automatically generated by the App. The Box ID is displayed in the Overview module next to the Box switcher. You can use the Box ID to search the list of Boxes using the search box located in the Overview module and the Box switcher.

For example: The Hybrid Project's Box id is PROG-43 as this is the 43rd Box created using the Program Box type.

Box Name 

Use the Box name to search the list of Boxes using the search box located in the Overview module and the Box switcher. When a new sibling Box is added, the App will add a number to the description.

For example: if the Box's name is "Iteration," the automatically generated name of a same-level Box would be "Iteration 1."

You can change the Box status in different sections of the app. In the Overview module using the right-click or by drag and drop when in Kanban mode.
