Overall Satisfaction with StoriesOnBoard

We use Stories on Board to create story maps for upcoming software (SAAS) development projects. We start with a smaller group meeting, engineering and business leads, map out the high-level "happy path flow", and then add details on sub-cards. After getting a shared understanding and agreement on that, we use the story map to socialize with a broader set of stakeholders, updating with their feedback as we go. While the story map is a living document, we generally will take a screenshot of it and include it in our technical solution documentation and business documentation on our document management system, Confluence. We find StoriesOnBoard to be extremely user-friendly and easy to use, adding cards and sub-cards, adding details on cards as needed, and with the ability to collapse the view to hide the detail cards. While a user experience is almost never linear, we use the "happy path" to map out as best as possible a linear flow.
  • Easy to add, remove, and move cards that represent different parts of the user experience (either external or internal users).
  • Flexible with different views, zooming in, zooming out, hiding detail cards, etc.
  • Can add an infinite number of viewers without having to pay more.
  • It's perfect for our use case, I don't have any real complaints!
  • StoriesOnBoard (and story mapping in general) creates a low-cost visual method of aligning on high-level business and technical requirements early in a project and provides an ongoing reference as the project progresses. Having this alignment is critical for the later stages of the project.
The only other competitor we looked at was cardboardit.com. Both had solid functionality, but StoriesOnBoard was more user-friendly and quick to learn and use in our opinion.
