There are two places where you can create an impact map.

#1 Dashboard page

On the Dashboard page, click ‘+ADD NEW’ and...

…go to the ‘Impact maps’ tab. Select an impact map and hit ‘ADD’:

You’ll be taken to a new document page:

On the popup, you can set a map name, assign it a status, manage document owners, and add tags.

Note: If you don't add any tag to the document, it will be visible only to you and the people you share this doc individually.

#2 Tag page

  • Open up a tag to which you want to add a new impact map. You can find a list of tags on the left panel:

  • Click on the ‘ADD NEW’ button and select an impact map.

Also, feel free to check out our Template library. You can add any of the templates to your workspace and tweak it to your project needs.

Note: By adding an impact map template to your workspace, you create a new impact map inside the workspace. If the template contains a persona, you also create a new persona inside your workspace.

How to add and remove tags

Documents inside a workspace can have multiple tags.

You can assign a tag to your impact map:

  • On the Dashboard page

Go to the settings in the Tags column…

…or to the document settings:

You can also assign tags to documents in bulk:

  • On the Tag page

Creating a map on a Tag page automatically assigns this tag to the map. You can remove this tag or add more tags afterwards if needed.

  • On the document page

You can manage tags on the Settings popup:

Note: If a document has no tags, it is visible only to its creator. To make it visible to other people, this user can:

  • assign the document a Workspace tag, making it available to everyone in the workspace;

  • assign the map a personal tag and share this tag with specific people;

  • share this document individually with others:
