Private Writing

Multiple tools focusing on retrospective meetings allows to control visibility of text written on stickies, see example from metroretro.io, each user is able to control visibility of their own stickies. It’s extremely practical functionality which seems to be missing in FigJam (i wasn’t able to find any plugin/widget addressing this functionality) are you planning to implement something covering this need?

Example

I just published a widget that kind of does what you’re looking to do: See No Sticky!

Would love to get feedback on whether it works for what you need or not.

I don’t understand how this isn’t a more popular request. It is preventing our org from fully adopting Figjam. It’s not possible to have a good retro or brainstorming session without this capability. We also use metroretro (which does this well), and mural (bleh).

Thank you! definitely good first step, i think that:

  • content of private stickers should be visible for author all the time (let’s imagine use case when each participant is writing their notes in a private mode, series of stickies, they should see what they wrote on the screen)

  • there should be also switch for controlling all private notes of the user at the time (show/hide all my private notes switch)

  • in future private stickies should be controllable in similar way like other stickies (e.g. resizing)

@Kamil_Zenczykowski Thank you so much for the feedback.

Unfortunately the first bullet isn’t technically feasible at this time.

The second bullet is interesting … so a switch that hides and shows all your private stickies on the board? Let me think through that a little more. That should be technically feasible…

I’ll look into resizing too, but that might be difficult to pull off. I’ll do some research into it.
