April 10 Web Release: Time-saving Google integrations, new Productboard integration, and more!
Time-saving Google integrations, new Productboard integration, better formatting on sticky notes, and three Enterprise features
This month’s launches will help your ideas stand out in big ways: on sticky notes, over email, and even in product planning sessions. Plus, we have three updates for our customers on Enterprise plans.
🎉 Take your next team meeting to new heights with Mural for Google Workspace
Mural’s Google Workspace integration now extends to Gmail and Google Calendar for more dynamic teamwork, anytime and anywhere.
Stop spending time searching through old meeting notes to gather context and prepare for your next team brainstorm. With Mural’s Google Calendar integration, now you can conquer daily to-do’s and reduce prep-time by referencing a mural directly in your team’s Calendar invite.
After a successful real-time brainstorm, set the team’s next big idea in motion by attaching a mural or template within email to cascade next steps and keep a record of collaboration front and center.
Mural for Google Workspace also extends to Docs and Slides for top-notch documentation and more creative presentations.
Want to give it a try? Head to Google Workspace Marketplace and install the Mural add-on. For tips, see the support article.
🚀 Add Mural to your next product planning session in Productboard
Now, teams can easily embed their Mural content directly into Productboard’s editor for more collaborative product planning workflows.
Productboard helps product teams understand what customers need, prioritize what to build next, and align everyone around the roadmap. With work happening across different platforms, teams often struggle to get complete context and stay in-sync when making critical product decisions. With Mural templates designed for feature brainstorming, setting roadmap objectives, and documenting user insights, now teams can ensure everyone has the background and updated information they need to execute product plans with ease in Productboard. Get started
This integration was built with the Mural API.
😍 Further express your ideas with improved text formatting in sticky notes
You can now bold, strikethrough, underline, or italicize specific words in sticky notes to further accentuate or express ideas visually, and create bulleted and numbered lists to organize your thoughts easily. Available using standard keyboard shortcuts or the ‘T’ icon in the sticky note’s toolbar.
✨ Free plans now have Mural’s upgraded user interface by default
Teams using Mural’s Free plan now have our upgraded user interface by default. For now, you can continue to toggle back to our classic interface if desired by clicking the ✨ button in the top right corner of a mural.
Teams on a Mural paid plan will be moved to this opt-out experience soon. And coming later this spring, the upgraded user interface will become generally available. Members will no longer have the option to toggle back to our classic interface.

🔎 Provision, deprovision, and manage access with SCIM groups now in public beta*
Easily provision, deprovision, and manage Mural user group access and permission-setting for workspaces through Mural's updated SCIM API and the launch of our new Mapping API. Available for Enterprise plans only. Learn more.
🧪 Test new features before releasing to the rest of your company with Mural’s new sandbox environment
Introducing our new test.mural.co sandbox environment that allows you to experiment with Mural's features without any impact on your production data. This means you can safely test and evaluate new features before enabling them in your company. With the launch of this new testing environment we will deprecate the scim.mural.engineering environment June 30, 2023. Available for Enterprise plans only. Learn more.
🔐 Meet compliance needs and minimize data security risks with the new Mural + Theta Lake integration
The seamless integration between Mural and Theta Lake enables the capture, retention, and supervision of content in Mural to support regulatory compliance needs and help minimize data security risks. Available for Enterprise plans only. Learn more.
🦋 Small but mighty
You can now take your previously published templates in our classic interface and quickly update with the new upgraded user interface by following these simple steps:
- Click Edit template in the top right-hand corner.
- Select the drop-down menu next to your template’s name and click Edit details.
- Apply the new Mural look to the objects on your canvas by toggling on the upgraded content. Click Update.
- You’ll then see your template with the upgraded user interface! Be sure to click Save changes in the top right-hand corner.

Thank you for improved text formatting in sticky notes – sometimes the little things mean a lot!1
Agreed- good to see you in the forum, @heyrobertdavis! 😉Thanks for stopping by.0
Tagging in @valerioalba @manuel - the sandbox concept may be helpful for you and your teams! 😉1
Hi Meghan, thanks for the recent updates. Can I join the sandbox with my company account? Interested in being a part of it.
You'll start by reaching out to [email protected] to request the sandbox.
From there, there are a few next steps. Sharing a few from the Help Guide, but do come back here if you have any additional questions.
Mural's customer support team will need to be involved in the initial setup of your sandbox company. After the initial setup is complete, you can follow these steps to ensure continued access to the sandbox for anyone in your company:
- Visit test.mural.co.
- Type your work email address.
- Click Continue. If this is your first time logging in, you’ll be prompted to create an account.
- Click Create your account.
- Note: If you’ve saved an SSO configuration in your test environment, you will be prompted to authenticate your identity using that method.
- Once you’re back in Mural, review the terms and conditions. If you agree, select the I Accept Mural's terms and conditions checkbox, then click Continue.
Now, you’ll be dropped directly into a default test workspace dashboard configured by Mural’s support team. Next, reach out to Mural Support to upgrade your account to a company admin in the sandbox, which grants you access to your company dashboard and enterprise settings.0
I feel like that sandbox is perfect, @valerioalba- especially if you'd like to host upcoming sessions with your team if a feature is of interest or requires a little live demoing together! 🙌0
