It would be great if you could do the dotvoting for specific areas, where there are different groups. Today I use different colors of post-it's, but having a group voting feature would be great.
Maybe not by areas, but by people.... not sure :)
Would you like to see this? 👀 Up vote the idea, and share your use cases below to help us understand how you would use this idea. 💡
@FrankWesseler, hey there, thanks for posting this idea/ Can you help me understand what this would look like? Are these groups of items that are connected? Groups of people voting on one item?
So I can understand a little better. What are you trying to do with this feature and what problem are you trying to solve?
Many times I am working with groups on one Mural. These groups could be working on the same tasks as part of a training, where they need to brainstorm ideas and then vote on the ideas.
Or I could work in a business setting and divide and conquer on different tasks.
Yet these teams share the same Mural and would like to use the voting feature. Today, I am not sure I can so this, as the voting session is always for ALL the board members.
Now with breakout sessions in Zoom, Google Meet, etc. it would be an awesome feature, if the voting could be made available to subgroups.
Does that help?
Yes it does! So you want to be able to run multiple voting sessions at the same time on different areas of a MURAL so people in that area can vote while others are still busy interacting and doing other nonvoting things?
If this is the case, are you OK if I edit the title to say "Enable concurrent or separate voting sessions to happen in one MURAL"?
Yes, please change the title :)
Would be great to restrict a voting to a certain "area" on the board (not necessarily an "area" item) to restrict where votes are given. Thus several votings in parallel could happen.
Would be cool to limit to object types, too, e.g. only votes on images or sticky notes or text boxes or forms because sometimes I want people to vote on the groups of ideas instead of single ideas in those groups. Would be great to be able to facilitate that easier by a voting-restrictions-feature :-)
In addition to @manuel s comment:
In a retrospective, when people cluster their stickys I always ask them to find a headline for the cluster in oder to figure out, wether the cluster is well defined. Than I ask them to vote on the cluster headlines only. These can be identified as they are stickies with a different colour. Unfortunately very often some votes go the either the area object or on stickies within the cluster, but not to the headline stickies. So it would be fantastic to be able to define the objects that are allowed to vote on individually.
I am so happy to see this has been implemented!!!
This idea of enabling concurring (parallel) voting sessions in Mural is excellent!!
Has there been any progress regarding this development?
Currently the mural can only be used to vote when a voting is in progress and when several several groups work simultaneously on the mural. Everything outside of the voting area is greyed out which makes sense when there is only one team on the board.
But I sometimes like to use one mural for several breakout groups because it's easier for going to the right mural, organization and exporting and documenting and finding results, if everything is in one place. Therefore it would be helpful if the groups could continue working outside from "the voting area" when one group is taking a voting... makes sense?
