  1. Collaboration bugs

    Testing collaboration in 2 different browsers on the same Mac (signed in as user on Chrome & as guest on Safari), seeing a few bugs:
    - Grouping cards in one view sometimes confuses the other view, leading to different group orders and even loss of a group on one end
    - Dot voting numbers get out of sync
    - Dot voting in one group allowed voting on individual cards, but in another group voting on one card raised the count on all cards in the group

    Not sure if this has anything to do with running on the same machine,…

      • Allow cards to be added to a group even when the group is collapsed.

        It appears that the only time that you can add new cards to an existing group is when that group is selected/expanded. When you have groups within groups, and there are a lot of groups arranged on your board, it would be convenient to keep everything collapsed instead of having to expand before adding new cards... especially when you are simply adding the same card/description to multiple existing groups.

        • Bug: Re-ordering cards within a group

          When you re-order cards (drag one above or below another card) within a group, the group snaps back to the original position where it was first created

          • Bug: Moving a Group will remove any drawn pencil sketches on the current canvas

            • Support Markdown syntax for simple formatting

              I've recently started using Markdown for quick HTML content creation. It is much faster than typing HTML tags. I learned the basics using the Markdown tutorial found here: http://markdowntutorial.com. I think this could really speed up simple formatting.

              • Enable text to be drag'n'dropped into the Boardthing window to create a new card

                I would like to select text from another browser window, or anywhere really, and then drag'n'drop that text into Boardthing to create a new card...

                This would put Boardthing instantly into daily use for me, since this is something that OneNote on the web does not currently do... and I desire this feature more than anything else. :P

                • Is there a way to share files, and have group editing tracked?

                  My work group is 10 people and I want to be able to post a file in a place other than a shared drive and edit in real time, avoiding the inevitable multiple dated versions (and inadvertent edits) that goes along with a group editing process.

                  • Erase by Color

                    Have a color selector for the eraser tool, and swipe across the entire board, erasing pen marks for just that color.

                    • File and Desktop Sharing maybe?

                      Often times we would have materials to share while collaborating, I could not find any option to share files or documents, maybe I am missing something?

                      Else, it may be a helpful feature to add. While we are at it, it would be great to have a desktop sharing feature as well, which can be controlled by the moderator.

                        • Provide a way to select multiple cards and change their color

                          When I first typed in my cards, I just used the default color. I'd like to change the color, but it looks like I have to change it for each individual card.

                          It would be great if I could ctrl + click to select multiple cards and apply a color to all of them at the same time.

                          • Pasting a list should create a card for each list item

                            List items could be determined by delimiters like bullet points or new lines...

                            This may need a special way to indicate that the user intends to paste a list.

                                      • Have a way to draw boxes and arrows to connect groups of cards

                                        I want to be able to create groups of cards the way I would on a white board, by drawing a box around them. And to show when a group of cards is a sequence or alternatives

                                        • Create a way to either toggle back and forth to a mind map view or export to mind map

                                          After a flip chart and voting session, I end up having to go enter all the ideas and data into my mind map for refining between meetings. I now just mind map with the group directly using a projector. I like this interface, but I'm also addicted to my mind maps for organizing.
