Hi! New user here!
First of all, I’m really excited about this product. It’s hands down the best online diagramming tool I’ve used (and I’m quite picky). It does so many things really well (and better than other tools I’ve seen), and is an indispensable tool for communicating complex information effectively. Thank you and many kudos to the team!
There is one feature that in my mind would really elevate the application to another level, and that’s layers – the ability to separate items (both items placed on the canvas, and comments) into different contexts, which could be labelled and toggled visible or invisible.
Whimsical is such a great tool for quickly communicating a LOT of information and provides a great foundation for visual team collaboration, however even making use of color, font-size and different fill/outline styles, it is difficult to present necessary information for one user type (eg, developer) without creating a lot of confusing visual clutter for another user type (eg, designer, product manager). The ability to separate concerns into different layers would mean that different users types could customize their view to focus on the information / discussions relevant to them.
Also, when I’m logged in, I haven’t figured out how to navigate to the home page in order to find the community. (Whimsical.com automatically redirects me to my projects, and I can’t find a menu option to visit the homepage without logging out)
