What are Unique Node URLs?
With large modules, it can be hard to find your way and remember where you were working. Additionally, sharing individual parts of modules for discussion can be difficult. We are adding a way for a URL to navigate directly to a node or transition.
Why would you use Unique Node URLs?
With unique node URLs, authors can
- Send a link to a colleague (who is also a collaborator) to review the content or options of a node
- Share a link on a call or in a meeting, so you can all view the same part of a module
- Bookmark parts of the graph you frequently need to visit and navigate quickly between them
How to use Unique Node URLs
Clicking any node or transition in your graph will change the URL. The URL will be appended with a hashtag element representing the element ID - the unique node URL.
You can now copy or bookmark this URL to share parts of the graph or save it and create a table of contents of some parts of your module.
Example use cases
Unique URLs allow for better collaboration and discussion in the authoring team. They could also be used to create a table of contents (or sections) of larger modules to speed up maintenance or edits.
- Groups cannot be selected and no unique URL can be attributed to a node group
- If a node is in a now collapsed group, the group will be highlighted, but the group will remain collapsed
- The unique node URL will always open the element in build mode on the graph. It cannot be linked to inspect mode or the list view.
