Adding Reactions to Workspace Content and Exporting Metadata

Adding Reactions

You can add reactions to content in the workspace, allowing for easy and fun participation and feedback. Reactions are similar to emojis and provide simple symbols to express your response to a workspace asset. :fire: :+1:

Note: You can not add reactions to textboxes.

To add a reaction:

  1. Select the desired workspace asset. A blue boundary box surrounds it, and a toolbar of options displays.

  2. Select :reactions: (Reactions).

  3. A menu of available reactions displays. Select the reaction(s) you want to add.
    Available reactions

  4. The emoji you select displays on the workspace asset, just like the heart emoji in this example (below).

    Your reactions will be displayed with a blue background (pictured above), while the reactions of others have a light background. You can show multiple reactions on a single asset.

    To remove a reaction, select the emoji on the asset, or select :reactions: (Reactions) in the asset toolbar again.

Hiding Reactions

You can disable reactions in a workspace, which hides them from view and is useful when giving a presentation.

Note: Reactions are disabled at the member level, meaning they will be hidden for you but not other collaborators in the workspace.

To hide reactions:

  1. Select :more_options: (Workspace settings) next to the workspace name.

  2. In the menu, hover over View settings, then select the Show reactions toggle to move it to the gray โ€˜offโ€™ position.

    Reactions are now hidden from the workspace for you, including existing reactions.
    Note: You can still add new reactions, but they will not be visible until the Show reactions setting is enabled again.

Exporting Reactions to CSV format

Bluescape can also be used as a simple voting system. Create options in objects and have your collaborators use the available reactions to vote for their favorite option.

Note: The ability to export reactions is available only to those with Owner, Facilitator, or Editor workspace permissions.

To export the voting data to CSV format:

  1. Select the canvas with the reactions.

  2. On the menu bar, select :more_options: (More).

  3. Select Export, then CSV.

  4. A CSV file downloads.

  5. Open the file in Microsoft Excel to see your data.

Now, go try it in your workspace! :bluescape_home:
