  1. Allow a user to duplicate a board containing all its cards

    Once a user creates a board with many cards, it would be very time consuming to create a new board with the same cards, if they wanted to try out collaborative sorting of the same information with different users on separate boards. Suggest that duplicating the whole board with all its contents, but with a new name would solve that.

    • More "natural" card resizing interaction

      Right now, you can resize horizontally or you can resize vertically (but not both directions at the same time). This is a la Excel (and is irritating). It'd be awesome if you could just drag the bottom-right corner of the card to resize in both directions at the same time.

        • Be able to delete a new board in entirety instead of as individual items only

          Right now to delete a board I have to delete every item singly. Sometimes I want to delete all items at once and it's quite tedious

          • Carriage return within a card

            Need a way to return within a card...Similar to how you can carriage return within a cell with Excel.

              • The gear menu on a card is obscured by nearby cards

                When the gear menu on a card is selected and there is a card nearby the menu will be hidden behind the neighbouring card. That happens if the neighbouring card was added after the card on which the menu is being selected.

                • Refine the way dragging a card near the end of a board responds/feels

                  Right now dragging a card past the end of the current board feels very sensitive. I suggest creating padding around the card (say 20 px) so that when you release your mouse button, the end of the board doesn't snap to the edge of the new card

                  • Transform URL strings into special cards

                    If the user inputs a URL into the card content, transform the card from a regular card to a "hot" card, maybe with a different visual (like transform into an icon or something demonstrating it's a link). One click opens link in new window, double click makes editable like regular card.

                    I can see that being useful to me given the circumstances I am seeing the use of card with URL, where capturing the text of the URL is not relevant to what i'm trying to capture/view on my board, but just having the ability to reach that content elsewhere…

                    • The demo video moves to fast to catch how to group and dot vote.

                      I had to pause the demo video several times to see how to group things (its not clear by just looking at the screen how this is done). I don't think drag and drop on top is inherently intuitive to new users. I also didn't realize the options under the gear menu change once grouped. I had to re-watch and pause the demo video to figure out how to do vote.

                      • Allow Me to Hold My Brainstorm Cards in a “Private" Area

                        For brainstorming, everyone should be able to “write” all the cards and save them in a “private” corner of the board and move them on to the board one at a time form the “private” corner. So it would be possible to generate a lot of ideas individually before sharing the cards on the board.

                        • Lock/unlock

                          Locking and unlocking cards is counterintuitive. I click on a card to lock it (via the gear). It just took me five minutes to stumble on the fact that I need to click the other, mega-gear in the header to unlock all the cards. Why not change the gear on a card to a lock icon if that card is locked, and then click that lock to unlock it.

                          • Have new cards appear relative to where you are on the board

                            Right now, when you create a new card, it is created in the top left position of the board regardless of where you are in the board. Can cards be created with your position in the board in mind or as reference so that they don't appear off-screen?

                            • The video chat in the demo comes off as part of the product.

                              Maybe its just me, but the video chat that was going on in the video demo came off as part of the feature set of the Boardthing product. I am not sure how to make it more clear its not part of the product... so I don't have any good advise here other than to make you aware of that.

                              • De-emphasize participants

                                Having the name of each participant in a pill and your own name further emphasized in green is WAY TOO MUCH EMPHASIS! My eye keeps getting drawn to that, which is the least important thing on the screen. A different treatment to change the visual hierarchy would bring the focus back on the cards.

                                • Refine the guest experience prior to accessing the board.

                                  I just watched someone I shared a board with try to both "login" to boardthing without an account. I also watched they get confused because the login fields are closely associated with the name field and it wasn't clear "guest" was a separate process from login.

                                        One of the fun things about sorting is the relationships different people might try or find.

                                        The ability to capture a snapshot and have it somewhere that can be easily looked at/downloaded, might allow more freedom to change a board when someone else isn't present.
