We utilize Conceptboard for brainstorming sessions and new ways to market out products. The problem currently is that the majority of the organization is remote. We do not have the ability to have in person meetings with big whiteboards or projectors. Zoom meetings help, but the fact that you can collaborate and brainstorm on Conceptboard is a huge help that spawns a ton of innovation and ideas.
  • Collaboration amongst teammates
  • encourages new ideas that otherwise may not be brought up
  • increased optics and visualizations of concepts/ideas
  • An improved mobile presence would be helpful
  • Enhanced messaging/communication while in the remote collaboration feature
  • stronger video quality on call/screen share
Conceptboard is well suited for companies that are remote and cannot hold in person meetings. It does a great job to duplicate the functions of a whiteboard being used in a large meeting, or an idea/mood board as well.

If your company is in person or hybrid, it may discourage participation and I don't see as strong of a business case to use it.

Conceptboard is a very good and interactive tool where we can connect with our team and have the brainstorming and discuss the ideas in open forum, I personally used this tool in my team to discuss the open ideas in whiteboard and shared amongst team.
  • Whiteboard and sharing concept within the meeting
  • Integrated with projects planning and sharing features
  • Project discussion in one repository and centralized documents storage
  • Concept board to be shared on whats app, with PDF format
  • Better integration with other project management tools can be improved
  • Cloud feature is already up to date
We have in our organization the theme based contest where we can share our thoughts and ideas openly, there is a team who are hosting the meeting and presenting the concept board and people those have ideas share with the whiteboard and discuss with all the stake holders. many times it is very useful when stake holders ask to draw our ideas on whiteboard and share it.

For such a small business, we have a lot to discuss and to figure out in our business strategy. We are facing decisions and strategies to reach our intended market and audience, and the employees of the company (myself included) mainly work on a remote basis. This product allowed for greater participation and collaboration while we each remained in our remote locations.
  • Security of our data
  • Remote collaboration
  • Creative, solution-based technology
  • Expensive for starter business w/o revenue
  • Difficulty of some staff to adjust to platform
  • Sometimes too broad of a structure
In my experience, this platform worked fairly well for our business. There were some individuals who struggled with the platform, and I could see it being more of a distraction (rather than a benefit or leading to progress) to those belonging to a large team or company. For us, we found that it worked well for certain team meetings where we were being more creative about solutions, but other times a conversation without that need for such vast collaboration, it was not necessary.

Conceptboard is an intuitive and easy to use visual collaboration platform for use by remote teams and users. Conceptboard is very easy to begin using, starting with a wide array of pre-made templates, users can instantly create text and custom shapes in order to present any kind of graphics they desire. This ability to intuitively create any graphic desired, allows for the sharing of ideas with an emphasis on visual collaboration. Feedback between team members is seamless and ever-evolving as comments and sticky notes are added to the shared document. Communication that does not affect the visual presentation can also be established using the built in chat functionality or conferencing tools allowing users to generate and share ideas on the fly.
  • Workflow Progress
  • Easy to Share
  • Intuitive Creation Tools
  • Task Assignments
  • Limited Trial Version
  • Must Use Google Drive Integration
  • Somewhat Stiff Touchscreen Controls
Conceptboard is most suited when it comes to team collaboration. Sharing boards is easy as there are options for a copied link as well as a QR code generator. Once a project is shared, user's can view the participants working on the board as well as adjust access settings as required. Conceptboard also excels when it comes to sharing external files and documents. With full built-in support for widget integration and audio/video embedding, there are unlimited possibilities for what can be created and shared, ultimately allowing users to share their complete, detailed vision with others in visually intuitive way.

Business problems that Conceptboard addresses -
1. Virtual whiteboarding and collaboration for onsite & offsite teams. Really does a great job in this particular use case
2. Project management - especially product management in an agile setup.
3. Brainstorming, and design collaboration including an all-hands approach to it

Scope of our use -
1. Virtual and online brainstorming for new projects, product ideas, backlog refinement, etc.
2. Really helpful in agile setup - Daily backlogs, retrospectives, etc.
3. Integrations with existing collaboration software
  • Whiteboarding - Helps teams to just use the tool as a whiteboard to help brainstorming
  • Templates - Pretty good templates to just drag and drop and use in a project. Helps with quick turnovers
  • Designing - Helps UI/UX , design teams a lot with user mapping, workflows, etc.
  • Integration - Could really improve the integrations with existing software, especially Jira which developers majorly use
  • Mobile apps - At least while we were using Conceptboard, they did not have mobile apps which made it a little challenging to use on the go.
  • Loading - If you switch b.w browser windows, it loads and this takes some time every time. Not ideal and should not happen
Well suited -
1. Whiteboarding, brainstorming, designing, workshops, etc.
2. Templates - Pretty good repository of ready-to-use templates esp for project management, agile, etc.

Less appropriate -
1. Anything that requires integration with existing enterprising software - limitations like no integration with Jira, Asana, etc.
2. Embedding anything related to images, videos, etc. The embed is not very smooth, it lags, and sometimes straight out doesn't work
3. Image search - Many competitors provide this feature and hence Conceptboard lacks here

Conceptboard is an excellent visual collaboration tool (virtual whiteboard) that allows our remote team to brainstorm together! I specifically have used it for brainstorming and roadmap/touchpoint planning. It's simple but extremely easy to use and navigate.

Working within a remote team in a marketing department – we have created quarterly plans, website touchpoint maps, and content brainstorms in Conceptboard.
  • Colorful and engaging collaboration
  • Easy to use
  • Creative freedom
  • Great Miro competitor
  • The visual tools are still fairly basic
  • It can be laggy when too many users are engaging
  • Limited colors have occasionally caused repeats
I have found Conceptboard to be well suited for basic brainstorms and planning. I have led content outlines, quarterly planning, journey mapping, and brainstorming in Conceptboard.

I have found anything that requires complex planning, like UX design mapping, to require a tool that has more complex capabilities like Figma. I also found that Conceptboard didn't work well for things like Gantt Charts.

I like to use Conceptboard as it is very easy to use even for beginners. I mainly use it to collaborate with my team to discuss views and craft my ideas. Conceptboard is very visually clean with simple controls and we can have multiple workspaces and almost unlimited space to craft our ideas with our teams. It is very easy to explain certain concepts to our teams that are hard to explain over emails and slack calls. I am able to invite participants with just a few clicks. It is very easy to prepare a presentation and also to organize large amounts of data. The set of features for planning, collaboration, and exploration of ideas is excellent. This is the best team collaboration software I came across.
  • Quick and easy to collaborate with team.
  • Easy to convey concepts and processes.
  • Very easy for Teams that work from home to do Virtual collaboration.
  • There is room for improvement in the variety of drawing tools, shapes, and figures
  • There are not much options to customize the interface according to our needs
  • Sometimes I face issues while uploading documents and larger files
It is very easy to use as virtual collaboration software, To explain processes and concepts easily to the team and to prepare presentations and give presentations in real-time, It is well suited for remote jobs where teams are scattered and work from home. There is room for improvement in the customization area but other than that it is great to use it.

We use it for various canvas models, whiteboard creations, and presentations throughout our organization. The business problems that we are tackling are the channels to the customers and how we can improve the interactions with them. The main scope is to choose through brainstorming the perfect fitting solution for us, for various user types.
  • co-creation
  • frameworks
  • visual templates
  • bug fixing when working on the same page for multiple users
  • graphical charts/metrics
  • work breakdown scenarios for particular industries selection
If you are using within a startup, it is helpful to have an overview of the main problem/solution offered and the methods of getting customers. Nevertheless, even within a bigger organization (e.g. >50 members) it can show the vulnerabilities that a particular pilot project can have and where it has ways to improve it.

Conceptboard is one of our organization's go-to tools when it comes to collaboration, brainstorming, ideation, and concept writing. It has helped a lot given no on-site work yet (the company is a hybrid setup, which usually makes it hard for brainstorming sessions), as it aids during online meetings. It is especially useful for my function/department as our team, being under the company's consumer insights division, leads sessions involving these.
  • Great user interface that's very intuitive and easy to use. This is an important aspect of collaboration, brainstorming sessions often involve a lot of people coming from different functions who may not be too familiar with these tools
  • Allows users to see real-time changes and actions done by others from sticky notes/comments down to their cursor movements
  • Lets users add/attach files and annotate/comment on each directly on the board which skips the hassle of having to look at files using different programs/platforms and referencing on the board
  • Would be great if Conceptboard can add more templates and more flexibility for customization
  • Setting a larger file size limit for attachments would also be good as sometimes, files won't attach which I assume would have something to do with file size
  • Perhaps adding a group chat feature would also be useful so that users need not switch to other messaging apps while working on the board
Conceptboard is useful in collaboration, brainstorming, ideation, and concept writing. These activities are especially useful for my function under the Consumer Insights division as we do a lot of these sessions that engage several people from different departments to be able to come up with good ideas, concepts, products, and strategies. I honestly can't think of scenarios where this tool would be less appropriate.

We use Conceptboard to work on design projects especially the UI remotely, we share the project design within our organization with our team of designers. This has been so important to us in collaborating on our ideas on several design projects without the need for meeting each other. A team can comment on the project, provide feedback, and we do a conference meeting to discuss the new ideas.
  • Conferencing
  • Project timer
  • Creating projects
  • User interface needs improvement
  • Loads very slowly on poor internet connection
The software is cheap and reliable for teamwork projects. You can create a design and share it with the team remotely to provide more insights into the projects. It comes with a conference module that allows one to start a conference with the team to share real-time feedback and discuss the project time frame and you can stick a note for another member to read important notes

We use this as an online tool for collaboration. We design flow charts, customers process, sales processes, and documentation. It gives us a clear direction and map in terms of what needs to be done and it allows for easy collaboration and visualization in terms of what needs to be done.
  • Putting process maps together
  • Allowing for easy project maangemetn
  • Easy collaboration between teammates
  • Loading speed
  • Easier onboarding
  • Nothing else
This really allows proper planning of how processes, sales processes, documents, and communication between projects. It allows for small and big team to really plan out what need to be done accordingly.

What a fantastic concept. We used Conceptboard primarily during Lockdown. Just think of it as a Whiteboard, where ideas can be formalized. It was an absolutely brilliant starting point to create projects and share ideas in real time with the full collaboration of all our teams in various locations throughout the world. We found it easy to brainstorm and bring all the best ideas out in 1 or 2 sessions rather than in long-drawn meetings. Recommendations, decision-making, and Approvals all became quicker and easier. Tasks were also easier to delegate and everyone knew what was expected of them and the rest of the team. We'd start with new projects and then effectively place them on a whiteboard. We found numerous ideas came to the fore and there was a constant stream of them. The best thing is that those ideas were noted and absorbed immediately, giving us a great platform to develop them even more. Conceptboard is such a great springboard for this type of think tank ideas-generating approach.
  • Aggregation of data and ideas in one single pane or view
  • Agility
  • Clarity of purpose
  • Simplicity
  • Can't think of any
For brainstorming and think tank activities. For Ideas creation and generation. For sharing ideas and concepts and improving decision-making and delegating requirements. For its simplicity in helping create strong team dynamics For making it clearer for the job roles of individuals in the team and the collective responsibility of the team.

We typically use Conceptboard as an alternative to Miro for whiteboarding, brainstorming, and outlining concepts / strategy in virtual settings. The problems we address are coordinating in virtual settings, quickly documenting ideas, presenting more developed concepts to large groups, and collaborating in breakout rooms. We typically use Conceptboard in groups of 5 - 25.
  • Templating
  • Whiteboarding
  • Multiple Users
  • Integrations
  • Importing / Exporting to other applications
  • Data Visualization
Conceptboard is well-suited for beginner users who want a basic product to create / connect / map ideas in virtual group settings. Users looking to type and storyboard can use this product quickly. It is less appropriate for more advanced users who want to use this product long-term. It does not integrate well with other applications, allow to easily import media from other areas, or visualize data in the application like other products may allow.
