Freehand Enterprise

Overall Satisfaction with InVision Freehand

We use Freehand mostly for brainstorming in a remote setting across the US. Usually, one person will share their screen while others join remotely. We'll start with a problem statement, then give free minutes for everyone to write in their thoughts. It's a great way to collaborate online - and we've found it more interactive than meetings in person. It allows for all personality types to feel comfortable sharing.
  • Collaboration
  • Team Building
  • Providing simple designs to limit visual overload
  • High energy hog when running (laptop sounds like it's working HARD)
  • Small lags when multiple people are interacting with the board
  • Higher res images when uploading artboards from Sketch
  • Collaboration
  • Invite users outside of organization
  • Work together in realtime
  • Quickly align on priorities
  • Focus on feature production steps
  • Organizational buy in
Trello has a lot more options for application integration. We can integrate with InVision prototypes, Jira, etc. This makes it easier to share with other colleagues or collaborate using the links as deliverables. Can track deadlines and timelines on a project level. Freehand is good with a large Sketch board, but it's harder to export the board.

Well suited: Great for low fidelity wireframes and demonstrating a user flow or org chart; Great for team collaborations and team card sorts. We'll typically use Freehand when we are brainstorming or prioritizing features with the smaller team and a wider departmental team. Less appropriate: Reviewing high-fidelity mocks. We initially attempted to create user flows by uploading Sketch artboards to Freehand but found they uploaded at a low resolution. When presenting to leadership, they wanted to zoom in on the specific artboards for details, but unfortunately, it was deemed too blurry. We eventually released 2 links to leadership - Freehand and InVision Prototype link. Would have been great to combine the two.
