Frameworks are a collection of pre-formatted grids and diagrams. You can add them to any mural where you need an organizational tool, exercise, or visual aid.

Frameworks and areas are sticky, which means that any content you add inside a framework will stick to it. If you move a framework, you will also move the content within it.

To add a new framework to a mural:

  1. Open up the frameworks tab in the left toolbar.

  2. Once you've found the framework you want to use, add it to your mural by dragging it onto the canvas and dropping it in your desired location.

There are five different categories of frameworks:

  • Layouts: basic frameworks that you can use to design your own activities

  • Design: different design tools to help with ideating and user mapping

  • Agile: a selection of retrospectives and grids

  • Business: a selection of the most popular frameworks ready to use

  • Calendars: frameworks containing monthly calendars and layouts for weekly planning


To use frameworks on a mobile device:

  1. Tap the frameworks tab (in the middle) on the left side dashboard.

  2. Filter through the frameworks either by searching by keyword or selecting a category from the drop-down menu.

  3. Once you've found the framework you want to use, tap it to add it to your mural.

**PRO TIP: Before you invite your collaborators, you can lock frameworks to the background so that no one moves them accidentally. To lock a framework, right-click (or Command-click on a Mac) on the framework and choose "Lock" from the drop-down menu.
