Reactive suspended members, rotate grouped objects, find popular templates, and squashed a bunch of bugs 

New Features 

🆘 Easily reactivate suspended members from the Company Dashboard

Company Administrators can reactivate members who have had their account suspended by simply clicking a button on the Company Dashboard. Suspended members can also trigger an email to alert their Company Administrator from the suspended account page they see when trying to sign in. 


✍️ Create more accurate drawings

We’ve improved the smoothing algorithm for drawing so that it is easier to draw certain shapes such as rectangles and right angles.  

🌀 See image loading progress when entering a mural

When entering a mural, you will now see the progress bar on images as they load. 

🔄 Rotate grouped objects

Now, you can rotate a set of objects that you’ve grouped into one element. However, if an area or framework is part of the grouped objects, you will not be able to rotate it. 

🔎 Find useful, relevant templates more easily

Instead of showing the most recent templates when creating a new mural, you will now see the most popular templates first. 

🗄 Clearer file names for exports

The mural name is now the file name when you export so you can more easily find the exported file.
