💡 Feature Idea: Editable Frameworks

Laurie ✭
edited June 2021 in Feature Ideas

We want to build up a library of re-usable components to make up workshop canvases and can't see an easy way at the moment. It seems 'Templates' are only able to create new Canvases and can be editable, 'Frameworks' can have one or more added to an existing Canvas but what's added is a static, non-editable element, and 'Content Library' is only for the individual so useless to share across an organisation or team.

It also feels very artificial - why wouldn't we be able to add more than 1 'Template' to a Canvas, why is there a difference between Templates and Frameworks, and how is the 'Content Library' so much better but with more restricted permissions?

The ideal would seem that they all behaved like 'Content Library', but more public - may be permissioned to the Room, Workspace or even Organisation. You could create a new Canvas from the, or add them to an existing canvas? But, if not able to replace Templates then at least extending the same editable functionallity to Frameworks so anyone can add and modify to suit the specific workshop they are running?

You'd think merging and adding some permissioning might increase the delivery of value across all three though?

    When reading the headline, I thought it was just about being able to change and modify frameworks when using them, I completely agree that this would be helpful.

    Additionally I think it could be very helpful to be able to add several templates to one mural and to have a "content library" which can be shared with others (maybe like the templates in general with every member or on a one-by-one-basis by inviting others to an item in my "content library").
