What we have been working on…

The primary use case in Oroson is adding content and enabling contextual collaboration around that content. This might be notes, lists, files, links to external content via integrations, or any other type of content.

As well as adding content, we want to make it as easy as possible to organise content so it remains useful. Oroson provides a number of ways to do this:

  • Grouping content into Boards
  • Grouping Boards into Workspaces
  • Adding sections to Boards to separate the Items into meaningful groups
  • Use group items to cluster similar items together behind a single item

If you are a regular Oroson user, you will recognise these as core features which have been in the product for a while. Over the next quarter we plan to revisit some of these, to make sure they are as slick and frictionless as possible. 

This blog describes Phase 1 of this journey and how we have improved the creation and management of group items.

Phase 1- Faster Group Creation of Content

It is now possible to create groups in Oroson by dragging content items together. It is as simple as that! If two non-group items are dragged together they will form a new group. If you drag an item into an existing group it will get added to it. The video below highlights the new functionality:

As you can see from the video:

  • Group creation is much quicker now as you do not have to access the functions via the item menus.
  • The new functions have an Undo button which is available for 5 seconds. If you create a group by accident or add an item to the wrong group, then clicking Undo will revert.
  • Groups are styled differently in Oroson, so now they can be identified easier.


These changes make group creation much simpler for our users. We are always striving to increase simplicity and enhance the user experience in Oroson. In Part 2 of this blog, we will discuss the next step of this journey – how we have made it much easier to add files, links and other types of content.
