💡Feature Idea: Improve ability to add links, especially internal links like wiki pages.

edited April 2022 in Feature Ideas

When I paste a link onto the canvas, I get these not-helpful boxes that provide no information. I'd like to just be able to paste a URL into a Mural board and have the URL show up as a link, like the default behavior in an email or Word doc or whatever. Please improve the experience and usefulness of adding internal links (links not public to people outside our company) to MURAL boards.

    Hi @LisaS Actually you can already do this, just pull over any text choice first and then paste it in there (title box, text box or sticky).

  • Hi @Christina , when I paste into a sticky, the link is not a link. There is no underline, and when I click on it, it doesn't take me anywhere.

    Ah, yes, @LisaS you are right, one does have to do a copy/paste. This is such a non-issue to me that I didn't even consider it before, but now that you mention it, a click function/hyperlink option would be good too.

    There are times, for example, where I WANT the link address to be visible in the instructions (Read the article at "xyz") while having the box next to it too, and I agree, lots of times the box is not attractive when it just says Private whatever... it kind of looks like it is a typo or mistake although it does lead to the right place. That's why being able to see the link in the instructions or whatever in a different color and underlined and just be able to click on it too would be nice indeed. Upvoted!

    Good point.
