Enable Sticky Notes to show user identity
I would like for a simple way to automatically identify who posted a sticky note, either based on "initials" (as are shown in MS Office Applications) or Active Directory credentials.
When I run a brainstorming event or some other event where people are simultaneously adding their ideas, I don't know who placed the idea. Later if I want to follow up to learn more from the person or to clarify what they meant, I don't know who to follow up with.
For now, we can have people manually add an identified, but that takes extra (unproductive) time to make those additions. Having an automatic identified would speed up the process. Thanks.
This should be optional (switch to turn off and on) and transparent so users posting know they are identified.
In a large organization soliciting feedback, anonymity is important. The "brown paper fair" in real time allows anyone to write a comment and add the postit to the board.
Whiteboard would save some of the grunt work of transcribing and compiling, but not if submitters are now identifiable.
I agree that for project teams, being able to link comments to users is a plus.
I would say that all of the comments on the whiteboard should be identifiable - or at least to have the option to know who posted, what. At the moment it is extremely difficult and time consuming to facilitate any whiteboard session with more than a handful of people - which being digital should be able to cope with larger facilitation crowds. Please add the ability to add initials/ name to sticky notes and all of the other commenting features in whiteboard! A real must for facilitation!
