    Stride works well for those looking for just a communication tool. However, there are a lot of similar programs out there that offer more interesting features without being overwhelming. The simplicity works for and against Stride. Smaller groups would find Stride useful, especially if they are not concerned with the public rooms

    InVision Freehand has quickly evolved to be a very robust solution for our pre-design process and collaboration with stakeholders and other product teams. It has brought a lot more hands-on workshopping opportunities and created engaging spaces for cross functional teams. Internally to our design org we are able to prototype ideas faster and generate insights or changes BEFORE going into more hi-fidelity design tools or processes.

    • Bring in and embed external files and view them on the board without having to move out of freehand. eg. pdf's, power point, youtube etc.
    • Creating wireframes, flow maps, all and any kinds of created art boards to share with team members.
    • Ability to create text and link to external sites
    • Can format and create pages with text and bullet points right in freehand, rather than having to go to another software to do the same.

    Cons

    Atlassian

    • Dark theme would be nice
    • Better integrations to 1 on 1 chats, some software only works in group/room chat
    • Platform is going away in a few months, so letting it run longer would be nice.

    • The resolution: Our webpage designs always pass the resolution threshold to where freehand starts to work its compression. During presentations, it can be a little embarrassing when we can't read the copy because it looks like potatoes.
    • Embedding videos: GIFs are only good to a certain point, and creating Vimeo embeds is tedious. I wish I could embed MP4s or web assets a lot quicker.
    • Touchpad panning: I can't tell you how many times I've "gone back" in my browser when I'm just trying to pan across the freehand. Has honestly made me wanna force quit on many occasions.
    • Sticky notes and text in shapes: Overall, it's really hard to use the sticky notes and text inside rectangles without the text just getting all over the place. It's different sizes, it gets too tiny, it gets way too big, and overall, it just doesn't look professional, even with a lot of fussing.
    • No ability to crop/mask an image. Nice to have, but sometimes we just need to delete a chunk off a screenshot, and it requires opening PS or taking a screenshot to edit anything.
    • Wish there was a way to have "internal comments" that are not visible to our clients.

      It's pretty much a no-brainer that we will recommend renewing inVision Freehand as part of our cross functional tools set. It's one space where we all have an ability to share ideas and provide fresh thinking. For all of our internal and external thought sharing sessions we couldn't see a need for any other vital component to communication ideas in a fluid, freeform environment.

      Color Selection can be tricky when changing colors for shapes and text I've seen other users struggle with creating sticky notes and getting text to fit in the box properly and had to abandon the tool for a workshop for this reason After having a demo, I learned of new features I wasn't using. I don't know it would have been intuitive to find on my own.

      I haven't had to use the support team for anything, which is great news because that means the product usually works as expected! In terms of online support, I've been able to find videos that show how new features work. Also, many of the people I work with have experience with the tools so they are a great resource for me.

      The implementation is pretty much easy-peasy and plug-n-play. We simply download the applications and install, signed in and were good to go. I really cannot imagine that there would be anyone who would have any difficulty whatsoever in getting started in more than just a few minutes. It's really how implementing these officewide improvements should always go.

      Alternatives Considered

      Atlassian

      Stride falls short in almost every regard. While Stride is affordable, Slack and Ryver offer vital integrations that increase efficiency and are more enjoyable for employees to use. The features of Slack and Ryver that add personalization of chat (private vs. public) also add a layer of efficiency and flexibility that are hard to pass up for the simplicity and affordability of Stride.

      Miro (formerly Realtime Board) is the original product concept for this tool and I used it for 3-4 years for product development. Invision is aesthetically a carbon copy of the tool but lacks in fine usability controls. We actually didn't choose Freehand, it just came as an added tool under our Invision subscription. It's helpful but knowing the previous tool, it's been a hard sell because it's just not as good. Again, it's really fine tuned usability things like navigation, zoom, switching from tool to tool, selecting and deselecting, etc

      It would have been nice to have a wealth of templates to use or a network of people creating templates. Also, it was a challenge to get people to sign in.

      • Positives all around. Everyone is able to see and collaborate.
      • Granting access is sometimes a pain. Sending the link does not always work, and I get emails as people try to access boards.
      • No negatives really, I love learning all of the different ways it can be used.
