Create a mural

Creating a mural is easy, and it's done from the MURAL dashboard.

To create a new mural:

  1. Click Create mural in the upper left corner of the MURAL dashboard.

  2. Select the room.

  3. (Optional) Select a folder inside the room where you want the mural to be.

  4. Choose to start from an infinite blank canvas, resizable blank canvas, or templates which are always opened on an infinite canvas.

Notes:

  • You can also create a mural while in a room. In this case, the mural will be placed inside the room. (You can move it to another room or folder if you like.)

  • Folders in rooms are optional but can help you stay organized. Read more about using folders to organize rooms.


Delete a mural

If you're sure you'll never need a mural again, you can delete it permanently. There are two ways to delete a mural, either from the dashboard or from within a mural.

To delete a mural from the dashboard:

  1. On the dashboard, find the mural you want to delete.

  2. Click the dropdown arrow in the corner of the mural thumbnail.

  3. Select Delete.

  4. To confirm, click the Yes, I want to delete this mural button.

To delete from within a mural:

  1. Click the dropdown arrow next to the mural name in the upper-left of the mural.

  2. Select Delete mural.

  3. To confirm, click the Yes, I want to delete this mural button.

Note: Deleted murals cannot be recovered. If you're not certain you want to delete a mural, just archive it.


Archive and unarchive murals

If you have a mural that you no longer wish to see on the dashboard, but want to keep around, you can archive it! Mural owners and room administrators can archive murals.

To archive a mural:

  1. On the dashboard, find the mural you want to archive.

  2. Click the dropdown arrow in the corner of the mural thumbnail.

  3. Select Archive.

  4. Click the Archive Mural button.

    Drop-down menu with Archive selected.

When murals are archived, they're tucked away and not immediately visible until you change your room filter.

To view archived murals:

  1. In the top-right corner of the room view, click the Active murals dropdown menu.

  2. Select Archived murals.

  3. To view active murals, click the dropdown again and change the view back to Active murals.
