Feature Update: Collapsable Comments

Head of Product at MURAL. A lifelong learner, passionate about strategy, productivity and simplicity.

We built MURAL to fully unleash the imagination of visual teams and we believe that communicating effectively is essential to accomplish this.

Adding comments and replies within murals is an easy way to discuss ideas as it resembles someone pointing at an element and saying something about it on a real whiteboard .

That's the feeling we've been trying to achieve in MURAL: bringing realtime face-to-face interaction into our virtual collaborative canvas.

Today we are announcing some changes to the way comments are used.

Collapsable comments

All comments are now automatically collapsed when not used. This allows you to visualize the mural by reducing the amount of elements on-screen. Any comment can be easily opened and collapsed by clicking the corresponding icon.

New reply/comment feedback

Creativity can be chaotic and murals reflect this. In the past, when you entered a mural after some time, you just didn't know what was new and where to focus your attention.

With this new improvement, new comments and replies will appear in a flashy color, indicating that there's something new there.

To sum up, starting today all comments will be collapsable, and new comments will be distinguishable from old ones.

Go back to MURAL and try these new improvements.
