You can edit settings for each project, map, and view in Kumu.

Project settings

Within the project settings, you have the following options:

  • Overview. Add a project overview and a license for everyone to see.

  • Presentations. Create, edit, and publish presentations to walk others through your project. Break down your complex project using the slide format of presentations, adding text, images, videos, and fully interactive map slides.

  • Activity feed. Use the activity feed to keep tabs on who’s making each change across your project.

  • Help. Access how-to videos, the docs, our open Slack team, and a list of keyboard shortcuts.

  • Fields. Manage the fields for your project. Add and edit new fields, change field relevance (which fields appear in the profiles for elements, connections, and loops), and manage field appearance and behavior.

  • Members. Give other people access to edit your map. Learn more about collaborating in Kumu.

  • Embeds. Create a shareable link to a map, or create an iFrame to embed your map on another site.

  • Trash. View and empty the trash for your project.

  • Admin. Change privacy, rename the project, archive the project, or delete the project. You can also enable/disable the image proxy when working with images.

  • Add-ons. Install one of Kumu's add-ons.

  • Fork project. Create a copy of a project. Learn more about forking.

  • Switch project. Navigate back to your dashboard.

  • New project. Create a new project.

Map settings

Each map has the following available actions:

  • Rename map

  • Duplicate map

  • Delete map

  • Make this the default map

And each map has the following settings:

  • Default view. Select the default view for a map. This is the view that will automatically load when someone visits the map.

  • Default element behavior. Set whether new elements should be fixed or floating. Learn more about fixed and floating layouts.

  • Default connection direction. Set whether new connections should be undirected, directed, or mutual.

    • Undirected. No arrows will appear at either end of the connection.

    • Directed. An arrow will appear at the To end of the connection.

    • Mutual. Arrows will appear at both ends of the connection.

View settings

To learn more about editing the view itself (for example, adding decorations, filtering, changing default settings, etc.), read the guide on View Editors.

Pro tip: right-click on any blank space in your map to access a quick-access toolbar that allows you to edit or delete your Project, Map or View. You can also use it to hide the direct decorations toolbar, reset your view, or access Kumu Support through here!
