5 Productivity-Boosting RealtimeBoard Features
Let’s see how to boost collaboration productivity and save hours by mastering these five magic RealtimeBoard features.
Link to the objects
Not only are boards shareable in RealtimeBoard, each object on the board has its own link that you can use for sharing!
To get the link, choose the object via Cursor tool, and click on the gear wheel icon. The sixth option in the menu is Copy link. Voila!
Insert multiple stickies in one click
RealtimeBoard can fulfill your sticky backlog in one second! Each idea that you store in the endless spreadsheets can be easily transformed to stickies. Just open any spreadsheet (xls, csv, Google Spreadsheet, text editors, etc.), copy, and then paste cells on the board using the Ctrl+C / Ctrl+V (Cmd+C / Cmd+V) shortcuts.
Note: the maximum number of cells that you can paste at a time is 625.
Another option to add stickies in seconds is a Bulk Add Feature which is helpful when you feel like writing down a dozen ideas in a row.
To make sure your creative flow is not interrupted just click on the Sticky note tool in the toolbox, choose the bulk mode and start typing away (and don’t forget to hit Enter to separate ideas). Click Done when you’re finished, and your ideas will be added to the board as stickies.
Easily present your ideas with Frames tool
We already know that frames are essential when you need to structure the content on the board.
But RealtimeBoard PRO users also apply Frames when they need to create a quick presentation and show it to friends or colleagues, because each frame can represent a slide.
To start creating a presentation, select the Frames tool, click +Create first frame and then resize the blue selection zone to mark the boundaries of the first slide. Keep adding frames as needed by pressing +Add frame.
Click by the Edit frames button will switch you to edit mode. To rename a frame, double-click on its current name. To reorder frames, click and drag them around. To delete all the frames, click on the trash bin icon.
If you need to export your board as a PDF file, create several slides using the Frames tool and save it in the Export menu.
RealtimeBoard allows you to search through
- sticky notes,
- shapes filled with texts,
- documents and other uploaded items names,
Note: text search is not available inside uploaded files and documents.
The Search icon is located in the top right corner of the board. You can also get access to the text search with the standard Cmd+F/Ctrl+F shortcut.
When you type your search request, you’ll see the list of results which are sorted by the type of object (sticky note, text, comment etc.). After you click on the result, all the items that do not match your search request will become transparent, while the matching results stay opaque.
Press Help & Feedback on the right side of the board and choose Shortcuts in the appeared window. Practice each shortcut combination and make it a strength.
