I would love to be able to copy an Excel table (or just some rows/cells even) into Mural WITHOUT it being converted to a sticky note or text box. Just as a table.
For example, we want to online brainstorm on (a long list of) quality indicators listed in an Excel sheet. To do this, I am creating a Mural to be able to add sticky notes to each row but also in a general box and make it visually more attractive to look at.
At this moment, I have to copy - paste the information of each cell individually by right clicking each mural table cell, selecting "edit cell" and paste with ctrl+shift+v. This is very time consuming. If I just copy-past, it will create a sticky note, but I just want to have the basic information of the Excel table as a Mural table and THEN add sticky notes.
Would be of great help!! Thanks
In order to keep our workshop mural tidy, as a facilitator, I would like to be able to lock text boxes in place while leaving their content editable.
Problem. I use text boxes to gather end of day feedback and learning. Inevitably learners move the text boxes around the mural.
There are many places where participants add material to the mural as text boxes. The challenge if the text can edited for text then it can be moved
Why this helps many - if you design your own workshop templates then your attendees have suffered because they moved a textbox when all they wanted to do was move their mural.
One teammate and I do the vast majority of set up and facilitation of our Murals for our teams, and ended up with the same permanent cursor highlighter/user color, and happen to have similar names/initials. I know I can change profile pictures, but it would be great if there was a way to change the color of that highlighter element. This would also be helpful from an accessibility perspective for folks with issues seeing certain colors being able to personally customize.
What do I want to be able to do: Better organize information being put in Mural through a cards feature similar to Miro's. Specifically looking to use it for story mapping but can be used for other uses as well. Links here for reference (Sorry for the competitor reference! I love Mural but think this is a Miro feature that would be great to have)

Problem I'm trying to solve for: While stickies are great for quickly jotting information, they can be limiting when it comes to capturing detail and organizing. The amount of space limits the content you can enter without trying to increase the size fo the sticky or shrinking the text. Additionally, since pretty much all the content on a mural board is a sticky or text box, it can get a little confusing to easily identify 'what type of information' a specific sticky contains other than through color coding.
For me, I'm using mural for story mapping with clients. I can color code the stickies to indicate epics, features, and stories but have no way to capture any additional notes related to a story other than creating more stickies (which can get messy) or leaving a comment (but comments can get moved and aren't directly associated to a specific sticky). It would be great to be able to capture additional notes about a specific user story and tag the stories as well.
Why this helps everyone:
i) Allows the ability to create a card with a summary title but add more detail underneath it. Creating a single place to capture information rathe than through multiple sticky notes.
ii) Create more structure by tagging cards and being able to filter by them.
iii) Easily differentiate between different types of information on a mural (eg. cards are used for task tracking, stickies can be used for more general notes during ideation sessions)
iv) After collaboration sessions, user's sticky note entries can be summarized into detail notes portion of a card allowing to easily summarize workshop sessions whilst maintaining information in the mural board.
v) When exporting to CSV, cards will reduce the effort of cleaning the excel file since each card excel row will contain a title, detailed description/notes, tagging, card type information.
When I set up a dot voting session in a selection, it is rather tedious to define the selection by adjusting the selection. It is wasting precious collaborative time, and it is stressful for the facilitator.
Since it is so uneasy to use, when I'm short on time, I prefer asking participants to put a round post-it on the things they want to vote for, instead of using dot voting :-( And we lose the anonymitiy benefit :-(
Idea #1: having an option in which you can define the selection by simply clicking on a shape or an area.
Idea#2: being able to prepare a voting session in advance and launch it when the time is gone. Idea #1 will help to do that
This would make voting sessions much more fluid!
- I would like to be able to crop icons after I enlarge them the same way I can with images. I would also love to be able to pull their shapes to fit my needs the way it is possible with shapes in Mural (and any image in PPT).
- a.: Icons often have a lot of extra space around them. When they are placed near the edge of mural, this makes the png or pdf I might want to send to someone look unprofessional, because a blank swath is added to the emailed image which reduces sharpness in the part I actually want, and which also then needs to be edited out, taking up time I sometimes don't have. 2.b.: Often an icon does not "fit" into the space it needs to be, but it would if I could just squeeze or stretch it a little without changing the size from every side.
- Anyone who uses the icon function for anything would benefit when they need a professional looking png or pdf quickly, and that needs that thing to stay the same height but be a bit wider or vice versa.
Problem: Especially for more complex groups of objects it can be quite time-consuming and even difficult to ungroup and regroup them, which is necessary every time you want to e.g. change size or position of a single object within the group.
The solution could be a feature similar to e.g. Adobe Indesign, where you can select an object within a group and edit or move it (in case of Adobe with a different kind of selection tool, but this could also work with the context menu) and as soon as you unselect it, it is locked again within the original group.
As a Trainer/Facilitator I want to collapse the parent outline item so that I have a more organized outline.
- Verify that I can collapse an outline that has child outlines under it
- Verify that I can visually tell on the parent, which outlines have children
- Verify that I can expand the parent and see the child outline items
- Create an Area.
- Add Area to Outline
- Create Items in the Area
- Add Items to the Outline
- Make sure Items in Outline are directly below the Outline that represents the Area
YouTube allows for you to go to a point in a video and copy a link with a unique timestamp indicator so that when it is shared, the viewer of that link will see it start at that specific point in the video. Here is a web page with more information on this feature: https://designrr.io/how-to-timestamp-youtube/
This feature is important to us as it allows for us to more easily convey a point in reference boards or more easily share video content at the right moment when ideating. This is currently not supported in Mural and providing a YouTube with a timestamp in the URL will play the video from the beginning vs. respect the timestamp. We would greatly appreciate if YouTube start timestamp URLs were supported directly in Mural.
It would be great to add a video file into the mural space so that it can be played directly from the Mural, rather than having to click a link in the outline. This would create a smoother and cleaner user experience allowing for a more professional presentation and interaction. Right now, videos can only be played by clicking a link in the outline; however, we have videos that are not posted on external websites but would like to show during our session.
