Overall Satisfaction with InVision Freehand

I use InVision Freehand to run online workshop sessions with internal team members and clients. This is an excellent real-time collaboration tool that replaces what we used to do in-person with paper post-its. We use it as a brainstorming tool that lets everyone create cards and then prioritizes/organizes ideas later. We also use it as a way of capturing meeting notes. As you take notes, you can easily move around cards to organize thoughts and create a simple diagram while someone shares their ideas. Best of all, you can save all your Freehand sessions, whereas I can't easily keep all physical post-its in person.
  • Present view - locking the view for everyone to see the same part of the screen
  • Simple art board - I don't have to create separate pages within a Freehand page
  • Saving as a template - it is so simple to create a page and save it as a template
  • Reaction stickers - this is very important when voting on and prioritizing ideas with multiple people
  • More functionality in the text options - I want to highlight text in different colors or change the text color for only a few words in a sentence, but this is hard to do
  • More font family options
  • Limited color options - I like having a limited selection of colors but would like to set those colors myself
  • Saving my own templates and viewing other interesting templates
  • Sticky notes
  • I don't have numbers to provide.
  • The level of satisfaction from clients has been very positive. InVision Freehand keeps our remote sessions interesting and engaging.

Would you buy Freehand by InVision again?


InVision Freehand is best suited for remote team collaboration, brainstorming, wireframing scenarios, and creating quick visual diagrams and concept maps. It is less appropriate in the sense that it is not a documentation tool everyone collaborates on to review and write technical or design specs. I am unsure if sharing or exporting to another tool for printing or saving is possible. I would love to create PDFs out of these pages.
