Editor's note: In the time since this was posted, we've made some exciting changes to QuickShare. Find out how new multiple QuickShare groups make gathering ideas and feedback even easier. Get the details

It’s 9:55 a.m. on a Wednesday. In 5 minutes, people from across your organization will come to your meeting room to review your team’s latest web design.

You need to show everyone your mockups and wireframes. You need to gather constructive feedback from each person in the room. You need to avoid groupthink. You also need to create an even playing field, where ideas are judged on their merits and not because of who shares them.

And it all must happen in 60 minutes so you can get back to putting your plans into action.

Enter QuickShare

The scenario may vary, but whether you’re designing a website, planning a workflow or doing any kind of collaborative work, you need to gather ideas from people quickly and easily.

There’s now a fast solution. Meet QuickShare for Nureva™ Span™ Workspace.


In QuickShare, every single person in the room can contribute. It’s simple. Just pull your phone out of your pocket. Then enter a number or scan a QR code. That’s it. Anyone can jot an idea on a sticky note or take a quick photo – it will immediately appear on your Span canvas.

There’s no need for a Span subscription. We don’t collect login information or email addresses. And people can use their phone, tablet or computer.

With QuickShare, ensuring that every idea is on the table has never been easier.

How to use QuickShare

Ready to start a QuickShare session? It’s simple.

Step 1

Once your canvas is open on the Nureva Wall, go to the Share menu to turn on QuickShare. Want to activate QuickShare from your device? Just use the controls on the left side to switch it on.

Activate QuickShare

Step 2

Invite anyone to scan the QR code. Or they can navigate to the URL and enter the access code. It’s that simple – no names, email addresses or logins are needed.

Scan a QR code

Step 3

Add a note to the canvas – just type or sketch your idea, choose a color and press send. Or grab a photo from your camera. Everything appears on the canvas right away.

Step 4

Finished gathering ideas? Just turn off QuickShare at the wall. You can always start another session later.

More ways to use QuickShare

QuickShare is designed for anyone who needs a fast way to get people working together, while taking advantage of the tools they already have. It’s great for times when versatile idea software could add collaborative energy to a planning session or brainstorming activity. Instead of people using phones to check email (and check out?), they can use their phones to make real-time contributions.

Are you holding a town hall meeting with everyone in your company? Don’t fall into the trap of having information only flow one way. Get everyone to add comments and questions to the canvas. It’s a good way to combat the spread of misinformation and makes sure negative feelings don’t fester.

Give it a try and let us know what you think – email support@nureva.com with your input.
