Freehand Free

Overall Satisfaction with InVision Freehand

We used this as our Scrum board, an important part of our Agile process, to track our tasks and ensure we're on track to deliver.
  • Allows simultaneous modifications.
  • Does not require "reloads" to see changes.
  • Cannot create template from which a new document can be copied from. New documents require manual copy/paste from an "example" document.
  • The colors for stickies in documents are very limited. And resizing of stickies impacts the font size - should be able to just resize the sticky without changing the font size.
  • Cannot tag people on a sticky, which would be helpful to create a quick task list from the tags
  • Cannot add a status indicator onto a sticky. Even if you use a reaction (which there isn't a green checkmark or anything) it does "stick" to the sticky note so you have to move it.
  • No ability to search for items on the page.
  • Difficult to shift Items, like if you need extra space in a row. It would be create to be able to insert a table that allows resizing.
  • Flexibility and synchronicity
  • Supports the scrum meetings
  • MURAL (formerly
I found that Mural had more formatting options.

It's good for "jotting." Suppose you don't need to do a lot of formatting or maintaining something over time. In that case, this is a really useful way of just getting the information out there - similar to how you'd make sticky notes on a window or whiteboard. It's great to keep everyone apprised of what's "current" since it is always 'synced' with changes. There could be improvements with formatting, especially the very limited color selection for sticky notes.
