New Capabilities Enable Users to Group Content, Add Text Anywhere in the Workspace, and Invite Select Collaborators to “View Only”

Bluescape, an innovator in visual collaboration software, today introduced a set of new features for its virtual workspace–Attach, Text, and View only–aimed at enriching the visual collaboration experience. Now, Bluescape users have the flexibility to group images, documents, video, text, and more by attaching individual elements to each other. In addition, they can now type text directly in the workspace in ad hoc fashion as well as restrict specified collaborators to ‘View only’ status to ensure work remains intact.

Each new feature provides distinct functionality to enhance workspace collaboration, helping teams create better products and solutions:

  • Attach lets users stick elements, notecards, documents, images, video, and more, to each other to create a group. These groups can be resized, moved, duplicated, and presented like individual elements in the workspace and can be detached when needed. With Attach, visual order is preserved and each layer is easily accessible. Use Attach with custom templates to organize content, track projects, design spaces, etc.
  • Text enables users to add captions, headlines, titles, and notes anywhere in the workspace, as well as add text directly to images, documents, videos, notecards, etc. The Text feature also provides options for styling, a 64-color palette, and a variety of fonts.
  • View only enables workspace owners to restrict certain collaborators to read-only access. View only collaborators can see other collaborators in the workspace, follow them, join a meet session, screenshare, see presentations, view comments, and download elements from the workspace. With View only, collaborators can broadly share projects without the concern of work being unexpectedly altered or compromised in any way.

“These latest features were all developed in collaboration with our customers,” said Nick Brown, vice president of product and marketing at Bluescape. “This degree of flexibility and attention to human behaviors continues to differentiate Bluescape from other collaboration solutions.”
