💡Feature Idea: Select several Outline-"items" to move altogether

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

I want to be able to quickly edit the Outline in a popup or so (s. another post by me) and today I wished for an option to select several items from the Outline and move them altogether at once.

2. The problem you are trying to solve

I duplicated an existing mural for a workshop to reuse it for another workshop. I had to add additional spaces for participants. So I created an area per each. The Outline has about 40 "items" in it. Unfortunately, new ones are always created at its bottom. I need to move them up. Now I can just move them one by one which sometimes creates a whole mess in the Outline because sometimes entries move by accident or somehow by magic without faciliator's intentions.

3. Why this helps everyone (or many people)

Less mess. Less time. Easier preparations = happier facilitators ;-)

  • Yes, I'd like to take a basic template and rearrange it…add new content, move some to the top/bottom/side or delete some (edit and customize the template with the large "groups" of things

    Hi @kducharme! Thanks for sharing. Is your ask specific to the outline, or to the template itself? I'm interested, and wonder if it deserves a separate Feature Idea post altogether ;)

  • What I wanted to do was create a mural from a template that had most of what I wanted, then drag or delete sections as a whole (such as a stakeholder mapping section) to a different location, copy/past whole sections from other murals/templates (which could be a 2x2 with wording/instructions), or delete sections I wouldn't need. Maybe I'm doing it wrong but I can drag/select an area to copy/past between mural- I would have to manually select each individual object.
