Reactions/Emojis ️‍🔥

Share the love for great ideas and work by adding emojis to content in a workspace. Available from the object menu, select your reaction and watch the count increase as other users choose their reactions. This is also a great method to facilitate simple voting sessions!

Improved Navigation in the Workspace (Web and Wall)

You can now get an even closer look at your workspace content by zooming in as far as 400% so that no fine detail is missed. Additionally, we’ve also made resize handles available regardless of how far you zoom out.

You can now view the entire scope of your content in a workspace at a glance by clicking on the Zoom to Content button beside the zoom scale.

Annotations on Notecards and Shapes (Web and Wall)

Use the pen tool to annotate on notecards and shapes from any divide.
