Having an organized workspace in MURALkeeps you focused and efficient.

Think of the rooms within the workspaces locations to organize your murals and content. Members can create as many rooms as needed within a shared workspace if they have permission to do so.

For more information, check out the article on how mural accounts are orgnaized.



Add a room to favorites

When you have multiple rooms, they’re stacked in a list and arranged in alphabetical order in the left pane of the dashboard. Add your favorites, to quickly find and access the rooms you use the most.

Favorited rooms will show at the top of the list and are identifiable by the star next to their name.

To add a room to favorites:

  1. Hover over the room you want to favorite.

  2. Click the star icon beside the room name.

  3. Click the star icon to remove a room from the favorites list.

Create different rooms for different projects

Organize your projects in a way that allows for easy navigation and management.

Create different rooms for different projects or workgroups when you need to share content with different groups of people.

This article explains how to create a new room.

Note: Members only see rooms they have access to so that it’s easy for them to locate their content.

Use private, confidential, and open rooms

Private and confidential rooms are the perfect place to store murals that are not meant to be accessed by all members in your workspace.

Note: Confidential rooms are only available to Enterprise plans upon request.

Use Private rooms when you only want to invite a particular group of people to participate in a workstream. When newcomers join MURAL, a private room is also automatically created for their personal content.

Confidential rooms can be enabled when administrators don’t want their content to be duplicated or shared outside of the room (configurable at a Company Admin level). Confidential rooms have certain restrictions that you can read about in our confidential rooms article.

On the other hand, you can use Open rooms to make murals accessible to anyone in your workspace.

Use folders

Folders are available to all paid plans. Folders can be created in open, private, and confidential rooms by the room owner or administrator.

Creating folders

When you’re in a room, click the ⨁ button next to the Folders header to add a folder. Set the name for the folder in the Folder name field. The ⨁ button only appears for room owners and administrators.

Create naming conventions

It’s important to make sure members know that the room names and titles of the murals are consistent and contain the right content they need. Without them, your murals library can become chaotic and make it much harder to find content when you need it.

Consider naming conventions. Rooms are arranged alphabetically on the left pane of the dashboard, and proper naming conventions can keep your rooms organized.

For example:

You can add “T_” for team rooms and “P_” for projects.

A short prefix groups items together in the left pane without taking up much space. This article shows you how to rename a room.

You can also name murals with the title of the activity or project to make it easier to find them. Include the date when a mural was created or updated, or include the mural version if you're planning to produce multiple versions of it. Put the date or version at the beginning of the title so it's visible from the thumbnail view on the dashboard.

Archive murals

Archiving murals help you store content you no longer use regularly. Archived murals are stored separately and will not show in the dashboard until you change the room filter.

To archive a mural:

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

  2. Click the drop-down arrow in the corner of the mural thumbnail.

  3. Select Archive.

  4. Click the Archive Mural button.

Drop-down menu with Archive selected.

Learn how to create, archive, or delete murals.
