💡Feature Idea: Add entry in Outline below "parent" area for nested areas

1. What you want to be able to do in MURAL

I work with nested areas to group contents in the Outline and make it easier for participants to find their "work area". In the screenshot below, I've done it for a game ("Game II"). I've created an area ("Game II") and created another area for each participant ("Name 1", "Name 2" etc.). Then I've dragged the entry for the Names one by one to be placed below the "parent" area (= "Game II") which is drawn around all of the participants' areas. That's why I would call the "Name" areas "nested areas".

2. The problem you are trying to solve

When I add the nested areas ("Name...") to the Outline via their context menu, they will always be inserted at the end of the Outline. I then have to drag and drop one by one to their intended position (= below "Game II").

I wished that MURAL would recognize that I've added an area to the Outline that is contained within another area ("Game II") and would then automatically insert the entry of the "Name" area below its parent on the mural ("Game II").

3. Why this helps everyone (or many people)

This would save time and lots of dragging and dropping through the Outline which can become quite "unhandy" when you have lots of entries in it (see my example with 30+ entries for a workshop). Who wouldn't love AI?! ;-)
