💡 Feature Idea: Prepare and save voting sessions
When preparing a Mural, to deliver another day, I know that I sometimes want to have a vote on topics. It would be helpful to be able to prepare one or more votes, titled for the particular topic, then save them in the Voting tab. This means I don't need to prepare each vote during the session: it is ready to go when I need it. I would open the voting tab, select the vote I want to run, then run it.
Without this, I either give the team a short break, while I prepare the vote. Or they watch me setting it up, which is not very good viewing.
It would save time, and reduce errors, as I will use the same vote every time the session is delivered, rather than set it up each and every time.
Layers (think adobe illustrator style)
It would be extremely helpful to all of my work if I were able to have layers in this tool. I am often working with a lot of stickies intentionally layered on each other and need to see them in separated layers. I also would use it as a tool when presenting to clients; toggling on and off layers as I show the entire MURAL board.
💡Feature Idea: Allow indents in a textbox
Currently you can include a bulleted list in a textbox but you cannot indent. I would love if we could add indenting of bullets so we could include outlines in textboxes at times

Help your team do their best work ever.
Re: Easy bulk word/term replacement (similar to excel)
We're getting closer with the ctrl + F just launched, but it would be SO much easier if we didn't have to replace each one manuallyl
Template Tuesday | What did we accomplish? Retrospectives in Mural 🤩
This Template Tuesday, we're talking Retrospectives. If you've ever heard of them, you know they can be a great way to review team projects, quarterly objectives or even the simplest of experiences.
If you haven't heard of this concept, during a retrospective meeting, the team members gather together to discuss and analyze the successes and failures of the project, the effectiveness of the team's communication and collaboration, and the overall process used to complete the work.
The goal of sprint retrospective meetings is to identify areas of improvement and come up with action items to address them in future projects or iterations. Retrospectives are an essential part of continuous improvement and help teams to learn from their mistakes and make incremental improvements over time.
Below are a few templates to help you get started (feel free to add what has worked for you)! They all help you look at what worked, what didn't, and what could be better next time.

Re: 💡 Feature Idea: Download voting results
For the nerds here: Here is a python script to extract voting session results from a Mural API response and saves it as CSVs.
You'll find the content for the "mural.json" in the network responses of your browser under '/api/murals', the repsonse starts with
This is quite hacky, but saved me a ton of work when I needed to process a huge Voting result.
Re: ✅ Feature Adopted: Bold Only a Portion of text in a sticky note
@YD10 Thank you for sharing your feedback! You can now bold,
strikethrough, underline, or italicise specific words in sticky notes to further accentuate or express ideas visually, and create bulleted and numbered lists to organise your thoughts easily.
Seed murals using GPT-3 and the MURAL API
OpenAI's GPT-3, DALL-E, and chatGPT have been in the news, lately.
But did you know OpenAI has APIs? They're quite easy to use.
Here's a blog post demonstrating how to call OpenAI's API to generate content using GPT-3 and then use the MURAL API to post it to a mural:
Using large language models to generate content to stimulate discussion and creativity in MURAL has huge potential! This example just scratches the surface.
💡Feature Idea: Add new font-types
For now their are 8 different fonts to use. It would be awesome to add new ones, e.g. to follow corporate/brand style guides or create advanced mood boards for clients.
