How to organize your workspaces, rooms, and murals

Understand the context you're working in, at every level.

 

Start by creating a new workspace (if you are not a part of any other workspace), or joining an existing company- or organization-wide workspace. If you are creating your own workspace, note that whatever name you choose will permanently affect the URL of your workspace. 

 

Then...

  1. Organize your murals and rooms within workspace(s)
  • DO take time to watch the Welcome to MURAL video, and acclimate yourself to all the different parts of your workspace.
  • DON'T create a new workspace for each new project. Create a new room first. 

Remember, murals are a part of rooms, which are part of workspaces!

 

 

2. Create rooms, and give your rooms clear names

  • DO think of rooms as folders to help you keep your murals organized.
  • DO create different rooms for different projects or work groups.
  • DO use private rooms when you only want to invite a certain group of people.
  • DO use workspace rooms for murals you want to make accessible to your whole team.



  • DON’T keep all murals in the same room.
  • DON’T use the same room for different work groups and projects to avoid mixing people who never work together.

 

 

Then...

3. Create new murals

  • DO create a new mural when you are about to start a new project with a new group of people.
  • DO more than one related activity in the same mural. Use the space effectively. Learn more about how to layout your murals in this tutorial on how to create team activity templates.



  • DON'T use the same mural for several unrelated projects, unless it's a mural you use for planning and to-do lists to get an overview of different projects.

 

 

4. Name your murals

  • DO name murals with the title of the activity or project to make it easy to find them later.
  • DO add the version or the date the mural was created if you are planning to do several versions of the same. Place the date or version in the beginning of the title so that it’s visible from the thumbnail view on the dashboard.



  • DON’T give all murals the same name, it will make it hard to find the one you are looking for later.

 

 

Now you're ready to create cool stuff. Go get 'em, tiger!
