💡Feature Idea: card stack

I think already mentioned that somewhere else. I would like to be able to create a post-it note with my own features, e.g. text on it, or a grid or anything else.

Then I would like to be able to define this object as a card stack, which means that the users can draw from the stack. I can also limit the amount that is in the stack.

    @FrankWesseler This seems related to my wish, which is to be able to download PPT slides in such a way as to be able to draw from the stack and see any one at a time clearly within the mural, without leaving it. A must-have feature for many colleagues is the ability to line up different people's PPT's vertically down a whiteboard, in such a way as that each one's individual slides, either a few or all, can then be drawn and spread out horizontally across it, one set below the other for direct comparison. Rather than jumping to PPT when clicking on an individual slide, it would just become bigger, as with the video in-Mural play function. Since PPT is the most used tool in academia for the lecture function that precedes the application function Mural is so good for, it makes sense to provide this kind of bridge joining the two in terms of user journey (what happens before the jump to Mural in a given meeting).

  • Hi @FrankWesseler

    do you also mean you want to be able to make the cards not visible when they are on the stack?

    That's something I would love to see, lke in board games that you draw a card without seeing what is on there. @Mural that would be an awesome feature!

    Yes, would be cool to have cards to draw from. I have a similar wish (not yet posted) for having double-sided cards like this: On one side of the cards you would see "an acitivity" like "focused work" and on the back side it would say which kind of room type would support this e.g. "1-2 person(s) office".

    Thus people could select let's say 10 activitites in phase 1 in a mural and then in phase 2 we would turn the 10 activity cards around and have 10 "room type cards" which could be grouped to see that we might have 5/10 saying "1-2 person(s) office".

    Would be a very visual way of imitating physical work in a room/on-site in Mural, but I would definetely like this (customizable) "cards" idea :-)

  • I also came up with the idea to have 2-sided cards. I thought more about having a summary on one side, and the details on the other. Thus being able to switch a single sticky, an area or the whole board between summary and explanation mode.

    Please find the details here 2-sided stickies: summary and explanation — MURAL

    I've also created stacks of stickies, especially in trainings. Also stacks of images to tell a story. But stacks are very hard to handle right now, so I try to find other ways. Stacks would also be cool.

    Yes, 2 sided cards and stacks would be cool. Definitely can imagine use cases for those :-)
