💡Feature Idea: Ability to write on the back of a sticky note

I'd love to be able to write on the 'back' of a sticky note. This would allow me to add some extra detail specific to, and associated with the card. A common use case might be adding an acceptance criteria for a user story.

Here is an example of where the front and back of a card is used in another context (Magic the Gathering): https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/making-magic/elements-neon-2022-02-21 Scroll to the title 'The Kami War // O-Kagachi Made Manifest' and you will see a card that can be flipped to show front and back detail. It:

  • doubles the information density while keeping things readable
  • has a pleasant animation
  • ensure additional information stays with the sticky

  • This would be a real help for avoiding confirmation bias when scoring things.

    I'm especially thinking of Liberating Structures' "25/10 Crowdsourcing". This is a really powerful process that's clunky to do in Mural at the moment (putting scores in comments is *possible*)

    Thanks @padgett! Do you currently use comments as a workaround for this?

    @w8s Could you say more on the confirmation bias concept? I'd love to understand more of the use case behind it.

  • I love this idea so much! Personally, I use Mural to help mind-map the plot of my novel (I know I am in a very, very small minority!), but this would be very convenient to help elaborate on the small phrases that can comfortably fit on the front of a sticky note. I myself envision the action of reading the back of the sticky note as opening the contents in the sidebar to the right, if that makes sense.

    Thank you for suggesting this awesome idea!

    @she_plots_with_mural - I can relate! I use it for expanding on content all the time. Thank you for sharing your feedback!
