New User Has Classic Board


We had a new developer start at our company and his scrum board is stuck on the classic view. The rest of our team has been using the new style Agile board for some time. I don't know how to switch his view from the classic board to the new board?

As an admin (a new admin), I can select Classic and view the classic boards. I can then go to More and then to Agile, and I am back on the new style. He does not have the More option under Agile.

We have searched for a couple of hours online and have only found answers to questions about switching from the new style back to the classic style - nothing about doing the reverse.

I am certain that I am missing something obvious. Would anyone be able to help?

Thank you

Is the user member of the project? I do not believe you can access the boards if you are not a project member.


Thank you for the reply. Yes, he is a member of the project.

What happens if you send him a specific URL to the rapid board? Is he able to open it, or does it thrown an exception? Anything in the logs if he cannot access it?
