Freehand Enterprise

Overall Satisfaction with InVision Freehand

I collaborate with team members by creating and sharing product wireframes, research boards, educational material, product and component research findings and recommendations, flow maps, journey maps, etc. InVision Freehand addresses my ability to share my work online collaboratively with team members and receive comments and approvals since I work remotely. I have also been able to share boards for user research studies and focus group studies.
  • Bring in and embed external files and view them on the board without having to move out of freehand. eg. pdf's, power point, youtube etc.
  • Creating wireframes, flow maps, all and any kinds of created art boards to share with team members.
  • Ability to create text and link to external sites
  • Can format and create pages with text and bullet points right in freehand, rather than having to go to another software to do the same.
  • Collaborate with Team members all on the same board and project at the same time and get feedback live in a meeting and/or even later.
  • Love the different templates that have been provided for me to use as a starting point.
  • Would like for Freehand to bring in Sketch files without having to use Craft as a plug-in. eg. like it does for Figma and XD files.

  • Time saver for remote users
  • Work at own pace with ability to collaborate
  • Share ideas and concepts with team mates and get fast feedback
It is simple to use and figure out. I would have given it a ten if I worked in Freehand 100% of my time and knew how to use all the features.
I love it way better than all the other ones I tried.

I love collaborating and creating wireframes, concepts, etc., within InVision Freehand with remote teams. However, I would not use Freehand to prototype or create any hi-fi here.

Evaluating InVision Freehand and Competitors

  • Product Usability
  • Product Reputation
  • Prior Experience with the Product
I was not at the company when this was done.

InVision Freehand Implementation

I was not a part of the implementation process. I tried to skip this question, but it seems I have to respond, or it won't let me move on to the next.
Not sure - I was not at the company when this was done.
  • Not sure as I was not there at the time

InVision Freehand Training

Very simple and intuitive. Played around for a few minutes and figured it out. I would recommend everyone do it the same way.

  • Wireframing
  • Sharing
  • Collaborating and presenting in meetings remotely
  • Getting comments and approvals
  • Things move very easily unless the item or board is locked
  • Can't seem to share links with non-enterprise members
  • Wish I did not have to use Craft plug in to bring in Sketch boards.
Yes - I tried opening a freehand link once on my cell but regretted it since the boards were too extensive to view on a small viewport like a cell phone. So I don't think I would ever use my cell again unless for an emergency.

InVision Freehand Reliability

Not everyone in the company has access to Invision, and they can't view the links I provide to them. I also wish everyone could view a file without logging in to the enterprise account. It comes in handy when I am doing focus-group studies or other studies with our customers that don't have Freehand. Unfortunately, if that is possible, I don't know how to do that.
It is a little slow when bringing artboards from Sketch to Freehand using Craft. I have had some issues loading and redrawing pages when I have a lot of images on my freehand board. It gives me an error message while I am in the file and starts to reload and redraw all the photos again. Not sure if it has a limit on how many images it can handle on a board at a time.
I think it is pretty readily available. I had some sign-in issues recently (could not log in no matter what), and my IT department created a ticket with Invision to solve it. Other than that, I have never had any issues.

Integrating InVision Freehand

I have not needed to integrate anything into Freehand.
  • File import/export
I have not used it, so I have no advice.
