Bluescape Adds New Features to Collaborative Virtual Workspace

Bluescape today introduced a set of new features for its virtual workspace — attach, text and view only. Now, Bluescape users have the ability to group images, documents, video, text and more by attaching individual elements to each other. In addition, they can now type text directly in the workspace in ad-hoc mode as well as restrict specified collaborators to ‘View only’ status to ensure work remains intact.

Attach lets users stick elements, notecards, documents, images, video and more, to each other to create a group. These groups can be resized, moved, duplicated, and presented like individual elements in the workspace and can be detached when needed. With Attach, visual order is preserved and each layer is easily accessible. Use Attach with custom templates to organize content, track projects, design spaces, etc.

Text enables users to add captions, headlines, titles, and notes anywhere in the workspace, as well as add text directly to images, documents, videos, notecards, etc. The Text feature also provides options for styling, a 64-color palette, and a variety of fonts.

View only enables workspace owners to restrict certain collaborators to read-only access. View only collaborators can see other collaborators in the workspace, follow them, join a meet session, screenshare, see presentations, view comments and download elements from the workspace. With View only, collaborators can broadly share projects without the concern of work being unexpectedly altered or compromised in any way.
