💡Feature Idea: Version Control for Boards, Rooms and Templates
1. What you want to be able to do in MURAL
- Version control for boards, rooms and templates owned/shared by multiple people
- Different types of access for boards and rooms (edit, view, publish,...)
- Multiple owners/editors for published templates
2. The problem you are trying to solve
In an attempt to enable interactive online trainings, we are moving all training materials to Mural. When doing this, we are creating one single room per training and adding the "master" boards in there. Only the "main" faculty should have access to the master slides, while the rest of the organisation is welcome to consume the templates created by the faculty. When consuming the templates, people often find improvement opportunities and are welcome to act on them, which requires them to have access to the board (or often entire room). But as online trainings have been growing, thus the access to the boards, it has been challenging to keep track of changes and ensure boards' reliability. Therefore, we would like to have a version control that would enable peer review before changes are made in the master boards. One other way we foresee would be to enable more than one person to be the owner/make changes in published templates.
3. Why this helps everyone (or many people)
As we move to a more collaborative environment where digitalisation enabled people from multiple locations and timezones to work together, it is important that we remove silos from people. Having SMEs or single point of contacts for training material in Mural prevents the industrialisation of these materials and knowledge sharing. We value teamwork more than individual success. Therefore, having a version control that would enable multiple people to collaborate towards one single goal while still ensuring the reliability of the material is key.
