You must be a Facilitator to add or customize this process step.
The positioning process allows participants to drag and drop ideas around a map.
It can be used to drag the most important ideas to the top of the list, along the axis of a chart, or to a different region of a canvas.
This can be done individually to see how aligned people are or collaboratively so that everyone sees the same output.
Reports will show the position of ideas relative to each other.
To add a POSITION process step:
- Open the map customization page (see Customize your map).
Navigate to PROCESS. Click ADD STEP. Select POSITION.
To customize an existing POSITION process step:
- Navigate to PROCESS. Click the step to be customized.
Adjust the behavior of the process step as needed. Click OK. Click SAVE CHANGES.
Individual positioning means each person moves ideas onto their map on their own. They do not see where other people position their ideas at this stage.
Collaborative positioning means everyone moves ideas on a single board. The results are WYSIWYG and display the position of the ideas last placed by the user.
When using the POSITION process step, all ideas will appear on a panel to the left. Participants can click on an idea and drag it to a position on a map. A participant can click on an idea to UNDO a position.
To review the positioning of ideas:
- Open the map.
- Navigate to the RESULTS process step.
The ideas are located to reflect the average of the positions used by the group.
Clicking on an idea will show the spread of ideas. This allows participants to see how closely aligned people were on a particular idea.
