How do I create a Group of sticky notes?

Idea Grouping lets you surround a selection of sticky notes with a colored bubble and label.

Idea Grouping can work as a stand-alone tool on a blank infinite canvas, or as a perfect complement to our structured smart sections and exports, adding an entirely new dimension to every Storm.

 

To Create a Group:

  1. Select the sticky notes you would like to group together, either by holding Shift on your keyboard and selecting individual sticky notes, or by holding Shift while clicking and dragging on an empty area of your Storm to select an area of sticky notes. 



  2. In the context menu that appears, select Create a Group. The selected sticky notes will be wrapped in a colored border and background
