Improvements to Workspace Cards Follow

As part of the Workspace usability improvements we have been rolling out, we've improved accessibility for customers using Workspace on tablets and other mobile devices, along with a number of changes to Workspace cards. These changes include:

 

  • After feedback from teachers and learners we've introduced a much-requested feature, Workspace cards can now be colored.

  • There are now clearer instructions about adding cards to columns when the columns are empty to make this easier for teachers who are using Workspace for the first time.

  • Adding cards to a Workspace is now separated from the column headings and renaming columns can now be done when editing a Workspace.

  • When creating a card, the title is no longer required. Cards can be created with only a title/description/image/link, giving far greater flexibility and making creating Workspaces that much quicker.

 

  • A new "upload" button has been added to make uploading images or documents to a card quicker. Details about dragging and dropping media directly onto cards has also been included.
