I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Allow cards (or groups of cards) to be copied and then pasted.

    I'm mapping an existing process and then a revised process. Some of the steps within the process won't change so it would be great to be able to copy and paste a set of cards into the revised process.

      Gerry,
      Thanks for the suggestion. I certainly understand the need.
      I will add this to dev log and if I hear of any hacks coming from our community I will certainly share them with you.

      Cheers
      Michael

    • Make it clear, on Welcome to Boardthing page, how to save a Boardthing drawing.

      Arriving on Welcome page for first time, I see how to use cards, pen, eraser, images, how to find my saved boards. I drew on that page, Great! Looks good!
      But how do I get to a fresh board without all that info on it, where I can put some cards and drawings, and save it with a title?
      If the steps for that are on the Welcome page, they are not very obvious

      • Reduce loading/repainting time when making changes

        Every time I make a change to card placement (moving a card out of a parent card, for example), the board has to repaint itself, and each card in the parent group reloads -- very, very, very slowly. It's a huge obstacle in making revisions and working efficiently.

        • Allow the board creator to have a few functions like the ability to see which participant wrote which note, sort post its by author etc.

          I would love for there to be board creator options that allow teachers to keep the note anonymous to all users, but allow the creator to see who wrote what. Allow the creator to highlight by participant etc.

          • Backup your boards

            Backup your boards (on a cloud environment or with a local import/export tool) so that you can be sure no work will go missing if something were to go wrong.

              • Make it easy to align cards

                If I use <enter> to create a new card, it is created exactly underneath the previous card. But if I move / change a card it's almost impossible to align it again to the previous cards.

                Idea: Use a snap function while dragging the card to snap it to other cards or a grid of (for example) 10 x 10 px.

                Idea 2: Use this snap function for resizing a card too

                • Allow import to create cards with specifying color

                  I am looking to use this more for release planning. I can export stories in text or CSV format get them all placed as cards. Then I can work with team to create visual release plan export in PDF and put it on my team wall. I can export and then get the plan translated into JIRA by putting respective team value. Since the number of stories in JIRA will be high it will be duplication to type all of them in Boardthing

                    • Offer a license for on-site or government-cloud hosting

                      Federal government agencies are often precluded from using SAAS or other private cloud-based services unless such services have gone through a long and involved certification process [ see https://www.fedramp.gov/ ]. If a small publisher offers a way for the government to host the capability directly or via an already FedRAMP approved cloud service, things happen much more easily and quickly.

                                    • export the results of the dot vote.

                                      It is really useful that you can export your board and I like the formats available. It would appear that the dot vote tally is not included in the export. Could this be an option?
                                      Many thanks...

                                      • Add ability to stage notes and then post when it’s their turn.

                                        This would allow us to mirror the in-person cadence that opens many sessions. Individuals write multiple ideas privately and then are called on by the facilitator one-by-one to place them on a whiteboard while reading each to the group.

                                        • Allow to arrange/distribute multiple cards

                                          When you start adding cards with the keyboard they start to stack up one on top of the other.
                                          If the UI allows you to select a group of cards and "arrange" or "distribute" them with some layout, adding cards could be really easy:
                                          - Add cards w/keyboard (ie taking notes in a meeting)
                                          - Select a group of cards
                                          - Distribute --> In a Row (the selected cards are layout in a row one after the other).

                                          It could be another distribution options:
                                          - In a column
                                          - In a grid (you pick the number of cols, rows)
