Overall Satisfaction with Whimsical
I've used whimsical for a multitude of projects, however, my favorite to date was mapping out the workflow for our new onboarding system. I was able to present my team with a clear explanation and reason behind each step as well as provide a reference for future team members. We often use Whimsical as a workflow tracker and mind-mapping exercise.
- Business/department structure building.
- Basic wireframe builds.
- The ability to share is a bit lacking (you can only share the link if the document is public).
- Would be great if we had the ability to make the notes smaller.
- Clear flowcharts for processes.
- Great visuals for team presentations.
- Keeps ideas organized and brainstorming simplified.
Whimsical has a flexible interface and a more cost-friendly plan than Lucidchart. Whimsical allows you all the room to create whatever comes to mind in one space, whereas with other products, you have to create a separate document to use the different functions. Other apps like MindMapper are singular in objective, leaving users unable to really choose the tools they need in one space. Whimsical creates a playground for ideas to flourish.
I reached out to support, as I was interested in possibly investing in the organization, and they quickly and happily informed me they are a bootstrap organization and do not take on investors at this time. The swift response and information readily available for my consumption was extremely helpful and shows how solid the team behind it is.

Best suited for mind-mapping exercises. I use it with my clients to build out new processes and org charts. There are so many departments that can benefit from the product: HR, IT, Customer Service, Design, etc. The only challenge is how the individual would like to utilize it. I don't know that it's best as a board for notes and ideas. It would be a little difficult to codify with the platform.
