Product Details

What is FigJam?

FigJam is an online whiteboard that enables teams to brainstorm together.

Ideate, share, discover. Build and riff on ideas together. Communicate more ideas with sticky notes. Dot vote, stamp, emote, draw, or chat to react with soul. Sketch ideas and connect the dots. Use markers, shapes, and connecters to organize your thoughts and show how they work together.

Map user flows, processes, and systems. Ready to flow with shapes and arrows. Document journeys and systems with out-of-the box shapes and connectors that snap to the grid. Described by the vendor as easy to learn and intuitive to use, FigJam aims to keep teams flowing and jamming.

FigJam lives side-by-side with the vendor's flagship Figma product (or it is available standalone), so all design work, from ideation to execution, can be found in one place. And, teammates can leverage design libraries in FigJam to create artifacts that are consistent and on-brand.

FigJam is available for free while in beta (2021), and, according to the vendor, will be available in 2022 on paid subscriptions with advanced features, and also still on a free plan.

We use it to sketch workflows of information, as well as wireframes for our UX
  • Workflows
  • Wireframes
  • UI
  • UX
  • It misses easy-to-use pre sets of diagrams. The ones presented seem to be not native and hard to use. Miro is a good benchmark.
  • Navegating throught projects in the main page is confusing, specially when people are not admin users.
  • It should suggest ways of organizing the pages designers do, specially when the project is big and have many pages and sections.
  • It could have, for example, a draft version for every page, so that one can hide it when they finish the work, but can open it whenever something needs to be modified, versioning the job.
It is well suited when people use it to sketch the first wireframes of the UX, like the Breadboarding technique from Basecamp. I used to work like that when modifying some UX. Our designers used to sketch over our current experience wireframe, and then we could discuss it by using the comments in Figjam or the Call feature at FigJam. That made it easy to discuss it. When building up group boards to discuss ideas, I use Miro, once it has more native pre-sets that help conducts the discussion.
  • the wireframes with post-its and arrows
  • the pre-sets of diagrams, although limited
  • the comments
  • the calling feature
  • It helps us conduct design tests faster, saving designers time specially because its easy to interact with FigJam
  • It helps discuss ideas faster
  • It helps us share ideas with partners more effectively
Positive: FigJam is cheaper than Miro and allows connecting with FigJam, where we design our user interfaces. FigJam is more complete and visually appealing than, although is free. FigJam allows calls, which both competitors do not. Negative: Miro has more pre-set diagrams than FigJam and they are native and easy to use FigJam is paid, while is not.

When ideating and developing UI in games, we needed a tool that would allow us to share ideas quickly without sending photoshop files around. FigJam did that for us.
  • One file, auto updated, no need to get latest
  • Easy to preview
  • Lack of client is benefit to some (not me)
  • There is a lack of proper desktop client opposed to tools like xD or Sketch.
  • It feels floaty and not very precise, so to me, it feels like I am interacting with a beta software and this service is like 5 years old.
  • Due to its web-first design, it is not taking advantage of peripherals like Apple Pencil sufficiently.
  • Offline work is a poor experience in my opinion.
It is good for mostly previewing and brainstorming, sure.
  • Ease of use
  • Accessible on any software
  • I believe that creating professional projects inside a web app feels amateurish.
If Sketch was on Windows with an app on par with their Mac app, I would never even look at FigJam. Sketch has local work sorted, accessible and scaleable, good collaborative features, and accessibility features, too. It feels modern and polished, with actual files you can revisit and not just online cloud equivalents. Available as one purchase or subscription, it is literally the best deal in design tools. I used FigJam because I had to, but dreamed of returning to Sketch all the time.

Being part f an all remote team, we are often looking for collaboration tools such as Fig Jam. recently we began trying Figma for design and prototyping. Figjam we though would work better with Figma so we began to use it. We have used it for ideation, team collaboration and different presentations.
  • Whiteboarding
  • Live Collaboration
  • Quick Iterations
  • Less Rigidity
  • Ability to work with Different Documents
  • A light version of Figma
Figjam is well suited for Collaboration within teams as well as with stakeholders. We have used Figjam to ideate and create a team structure and guidelines. It works especially well for a remote team that needs a real time live collaboration tool. There are some limits at the moment on what they support. For example there is a similar collaboration tool that allow one to use google docs and be able to edit right from the collaboration tool. Features like these help keep it ahead of curve. I am sure Figjam is working on adding support.
  • Figma Support
  • Real Time Collaboration
  • Presentation Capabilities
  • Allowed for Collaboration
  • Increase team time
  • Figma Document Presentation
I feel like Figjam is great at at what it does. It provides a great overall place to be able to use a virtual whiteboard and help teams collaborate. Especially remote teams. It actually does it better than others. There are some tools such as InVision Freehand that at the moment support more tools that can be intergrated within the actual document. This is especially useful when working in an all remote team and it helps keep thoughts organized.
