A Year in Review - The Best of Bluescape 2021 ⭐

At the beginning of 2021, we made a commitment to improve our product, features, and build the most secure and collaborative whiteboard experience for all! This year, we can confidently say we’ve kept that promise, all thanks to the innovative and constructive feedback you’ve given us along the way.

Before we charge into 2022, it’s important we reflect on how far we’ve come together, the work we’ve done to deliver on our promise, and the direction we plan to go. So, please join us as we look back on the accomplishments, we’ve achieved together this year!

1. Advancements for Better Collaboration :handshake:

A few features to highlight:

Bluescape Meetings

  • Native voice and video meetings with the ability to dial-in
  • Virtually meet with your team or invite guests to join a meeting from anywhere in the world.
  • Host scheduled and ad-hoc meetings right in a workspace.
  • Record your meeting’s audio to playback later so you don’t miss a beat.

The Bluescape App

  • Download the Bluescape Mobile App and collaborate on the go!
  • Use touch-tools such as the Apple Pencil for a seamless drawing experience – just like putting pen to paper! |
  • Upload images into a workspace, straight from your device.

Emojis/Reactions

  • Use emojis to give kudos and make quick decisions.
  • They’re great for polling and soliciting feedback.

More Collaboration Tools

  • Shared Cursors – View cursors of all collaborators in a workspace to improve real-time working sessions.
