Web-based Visual Workspaces: A Thinkature Wish List.

Over the last few months, i’ve tested a number of Flash-based online visualization tools, like Gliffy, and i still prefer the opensource, ajax approach. Of these, my favorite right now, is Thinkature.

I’m not going to do a full blown review of their features since i feel their website does a pretty good job of that already.
Instead, i thought i’d make a list of features that i’d love to see added to Thinkature some time in the near future.

It’s be cool if:

  • in “My Workspaces” i could provide short descriptions (instead of just titles) for each New Workspace i create
  • in addition to having “My Workspaces” and “Recent Workspaces”, there was a “Archived Workspaces” (and let me archive ones i don’t use)
  • in “My Account” there was a place where i could set my default landing page from “My Workspaces” to “Recent Workspaces” (it’s an extra click every time for me)
  • in “My Account” there was a place where i could turn off those help/notification pop-ups (they slow down my machine and i know my way around by now)
  • when inside a given workspace, i could click on the “Workspaces” icon (bottom-right corner) and get a link to “Recent Workspaces” (not just “Back to Homepage” and “Print this Workspace”)
  • i could have users of a given workspace add objects to my shared workspace but not delete my objects (that might just be really wishful thinking, no pun intended)
  • i could just export a given workspace as: jpg or png

I’ll try and keep this list up-to-date with any changes to Thinkature’s features (and maybe even add more items to this wish list the more i use their service). Also, if you’ve used this service and have any suggestions of your own, by all means add them to the comments section below.

In the meantime, for those of you who haven’t tried it out for yourselves, maybe you should. As long as nothing on this list seems like a show-stopper to you, why not give it a go? Personally, i’m going to keep using Thinkature to help organize and plan abstract ideas and other complex conceptualizations that usually start to make my brain hurt in that special way. For me, some things just won’t fit into a traditional spreadsheet. They never will, and so theres always going to be room for a web-based service like Thinkature.
