A feature I would love to see if the ability for other people to “upvote” cards using emoji.
I’ve been playing with various tools designed to support co-creation when thinking through problems or ideas.
Getting feedback on ideas is really important. But if the feedback is purely verbal participants can hold back critique or feel pressured to like the bosses idea best and of course the issues around highest paid persons opinion (hippo) can influence the whole room.
To combat this and build confidence in working one approach we have used is to ask participants to apply simple sticky dots onto sketchbook / printed roughs to indicate if you like something.
You can even use multi colour dots to indicate agile type reviews with colours for Stop, Continue, Start etc.
When I started to introduce more digital tools into the ideas workflow we transitioned to using emojis to upvote or quickly indicate preferences to ideas and concepts in the same way.
Much like the sketchbook you are not permitted to upvote on your own cards. The application of the emoji should also be anonymous as well to avoid the above pitfalls.
Here is a very rough visualisation for Kinopio. Of course how you open the emoji panel and how you add a count to the certain emoji, could be handled a bit like Slack etc.
