Sticky notes

Jot down those ideas before they disappear.

Sticky notes are core to the collaborative and iterative nature of the canvas. You can use sticky notes to:

  • brainstorm ideas with your team before starting a piece of work

  • make notes to yourself about why you chose to do an analysis a particular way

  • keep track of an ongoing to-do list

  • sort ideas into groups

  • get feedback on a canvas from a stakeholder

Insert a sticky note

You can use the toolbar to insert a sticky note, or use the shortcut s.

Drop the sticky note on the canvas wherever you want - but it's easy to move it once it's been placed.

Edit a sticky note

Once a sticky note is added you can add rich text or change the background color.

You can use markdown shortcuts in a sticky note. See the text and markdown section for more detail.

Adding your name to a sticky note

By default, the sticky note you create will have your name in the bottom right. You can optionally turn that off and make the sticky note anonymous.

Resizing a sticky note

Unlike other objects, when resizing sticky notes their content is resized too.

Deleting a sticky note

Simply hit backspace to delete a sticky note.
