Diligent Boards Configuration Specs

The configuration specs outlined in this guide are a reference on the minimum technology requirements to run Diligent Boards on all devices. Since Diligent is an Application Service Provider (ASP), minimal IT support will be needed for implementation. The configuration specs below may vary based on method of access and user role, and are based off minimum requirements.

Diligent Boards Access

Diligent Boards has native applications for Windows computers (OneClick), Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 Devices, as well as iPad, iPhone, macOS and Android. Diligent Boards is also accessible through any standard web browser. Mac administrator users can install Windows Virtualization software to run Diligent Boards OneClick via a Windows virtual machine.

User Role Considerations

Administrative users have read and write access to make site changes; this requires using Diligent Boards OneClick. Unlike read-only users such as Board or Executive members, the Diligent Boards Admin Client will use more CPU resources to complete tasks, especially if running Windows virtually on a Mac. Board or Executive members who use Diligent Boards OneClick in offline mode will use additional CPU resources as well. The specs below provide the minimum requirements for using Diligent Boards OneClick in any of these scenarios.
