Nureva Span just got a whole lot better with its 1.3 version release

Rapid have been successfully promoting Nureva Span for nearly 12 months now and each new release if the software has added value. The new version, which customers receive automatically through the cloud, enables flexible collaboration in several key ways.

Firstly users can now easily duplicate canvases to create templates for reuse or create multiple versions of the same canvas during a collaboration session. A new trial version gives access to one canvas within the software at no cost, and guests can now be invited to participate in a canvas.

Nureva continues to make meaningful improvements to the flexibility and ease of use of its software, based on our customer input. For example, the ability to invite guests to a canvas makes it possible to fully include outside participants in planning or ideation sessions, strengthening the collective output of the group.

The canvas duplication feature lets users create custom templates and allows break-out groups to expand their ideas independently. Users can also save versions of the same canvas at several points during longer ideation sessions, enabling easy look-backs to ideas and plans as they develop. Other new features include increased functionality on personal devices, the ability to open web browsers and other desktop applications without having to exit Span software, and more tools for representing ideas, such as text boxes and inking within groups. Collectively, these enhancements ensure the software aligns with and expands our customers’ collaboration and innovation processes.

Additional details about Span 1.3 software

Canvas features

Span 1.3 software offers several new ways to work with canvases:
  • Sharing – canvas owners can invite guests to a canvas, and a canvas can be shared with people who are not subscribers

  • Duplicating – canvas owners can quickly duplicate a canvas, enabling the creation of custom templates

  • Versioning – canvas owners can create view-only versions of a canvas at any time, making it easy to reference earlier ideas and track progress

Interacting from personal devices
Users can now use personal devices to edit items that have been posted to a canvas, including notes, text boxes, sketches and inking. Objects can be easily pinned, unpinned and deleted as needed. This makes it easier for participants to prepare for collaboration sessions and also enables users to fully collaborate using personal devices, computers and interactive displays.

Access to external content
Participants using Span wall software can access and interact with content from other applications, including web browsers and desktop applications, without leaving the software. Content from these applications can also be captured and pasted into the canvas, either as an image or as text in a note or text box.

Input options

New tools enable participants to contribute ideas easily and flexibly:
  • Text boxes – users can add headings and accommodate greater amounts of text

  • Enhanced inking – users can sketch and write within groups, showing connections between objects and annotating freely

  • Expanded colour options – ink, text and notes are now available in 10 colours

We think you will agree that these developments are very exciting and if you are looking to prepare your collaborative workspaces for the next decade contact us now for your free consultation.
