    RealtimeBoard is a gamechanger for design collaboration

    Value for Money

    In early-stage product development, no-one wants to pay for the time it takes for working documents to look good. This does not mean they don't want the documents to be clear, concise, and understandable, and it absolutely does not mean that they want good ideas and analyses to get lost in the clutter. In a paper-post it-CAD/DTP-workflow this is often the case. RealtimeBoard adresses all these issues and is a true gamechanger for the design industry. Thank you!

    Pros

    RealtimeBoard has become an integral part of my workflow.

    It is:
    • Intuitive and hassle-free to use
    • Lightweight and available everywhere
    • In rapid development—constantly improving the core product

    I use it for:
    • Everything from early stage ideation to larger scale mapping and analysis
    • Collaboration with other designers on my team
    • Co-creative workshops and interviews with users and clients
    • The remote-work version of everything above
    • Presentations, working documents, and even interim reports.

    Cons

    On my view, there are no major drawbacks with RealtimeBoard.

    However, I find the pricing model a minor hindrance. Although it suits my current situation just fine, it was a bit rigid when I worked in a three-person team.

    Great Free Version, appealing paid version and always improving

    Support

    Product updates did not mess up anything, were properly communicated and added value to the product. This is quite rare.

    Pros

    The free version provides all the functionalities you need for working in a real company environment.
    Paid version provides templates and additional functionalities that appear to be worth paying for. You can test everything during trial period.
    Support is immediate via chat and even proactive.

    Cons

    Not easy to use the template for 'five whys' root cause analysis.
    Did not understand well how the readonly teammate is to be configured.

    Realtimeboard is not just worth a try - but worth sticking through the usage of at least one or two projects in a team. You will get stuck on it and enjoy it.

    Pros

    I've been using Realtimeboard for many years now. It has become my go to platform for large and small scale planning. I have access to many other systems and methodologies but Realtimeboard offers me a platform that has an extremely easy uptake for newbies (i.e. people I work with for a certain project)

    Cons

    None that I can think about. In the beginning it did not have that many features but it has grown in leaps and bounds. Even right in the beginning Realtimeboard was extremely usable.

    Its an awesome tool !

    Pros

    You don't need much to understand how to use so Its really helpful when you are adding new teammates to a project.
    Really flexible, aside from having a bunch of really cool templates that can help you get started it is a really flexible tool.

    Cons

    Maybe a bit hard to understand zoom and how small or big things should and can be.
    A on-boarding or "read this first" might be helpfull feature to let teams know what relevant now

    Sometimes Font resizing doesn't happen accurately when we resize the Sticky note.
    When I select more than 10-15 sticky notes , then all editing options don't come.

    This is such a great planning tool, especially with more and more people working remotely. It's harder to have IRL whiteboarding and planning sessions, and often conference calls just won't do. RTB broadens the possibilities for strategic planning sessions and collaboration when you don't have the option of being in the same place at the same time. I just love it.

    Pros

    I have found Realtime Board to be extremely helpful in my planning, organization, brainstorming, strategy work and project ideation, particularly when it comes to collaborating. I am a huge fan of Gamestorming and whiteboarding and it's so nice to have the ability to capture and save work that used to only exist on post-its.

    Cons

    The UI takes a little adjustment, but other than that, I can't really think of any cons. And, since I first started using RTB, the UI has improved, so I think it's something they pay attention to and update.

    I really love this product. I was looking at other options that had MUCH higher price tags are far more limited functionality. I am really glad I found this.

    Pros

    - super easy to use
    - great for those of us who think more fluidly than just a spreadsheet or list
    - awesome for collaboration
    - allows comments by non-account holders, which is absolutely critical to enable collaboration
    - the price is amazing
    - haven't used the JIRA integration yet but that was a key factor in my decision to use this over other similar products

    Cons

    I don't see many cons. It could use more program and project management related pre-built templates, but really the ones that are included are pretty great.

    Pros

    "I love realtime board. Especially all of the updates and templates that have come recently. We first started using real time board back in 2014 but stopped till just recently. The new features really make it a go to solution for our team especially since we are in two different locations and need t collaborate daily. Real-time board helps us to do that and meet our goes. "

    Can use the on PC, web, mobile phone. Love all of the features and versatility. I like the large viewing area. The sticky notes and the templates that are provided are also very helpful. We started using Real-Time board instead of Microsoft One Note. Being able to see where the other members of the team are pointing to is a huge plus as well.

    Cons

    Wish there was pricing for a 2 man team. We are small team and 40 a month at his point would be too high. Totally worth it for a team of 5 but would like to have the option of a small team like 2-3 people.

    Cons

    Sometimes takes a little long to load but it's not a hinderance. Looking forward to using it more and figuring out even more of the functionality.

    As a consultant working remotely with clients, realtime board lets me visually organize ideas and communicate effectively over meetings. Additionally, for all clients, it allows for a space to brainstorm and collaborate without having to worry about the cleaning staff erasing important info! Really great tool!

    Cons

    At this point, I really do not have any complaints with RealTimeBoard. I have not tried to use it beyond its function as a digital whiteboard.

    Pros

    Bringing over your ideas can sometimes be a hassle, especially when it comes down to the communication between me and my IT team. After trying several real time tools, I came along realtimeboard. This real time whiteboard gives me the possibility to share my ideas with my team; working efficiently and making sure everyone is on the same page. The visuals are easily added and the notes you can add enable you to share ideas with everyone.

    Cons

    Could have more application integrations. Also easy table creation or other design tools that could help structure your ideas would be nice

    We run design sprints twice every month. Sometimes we need to do it remotely. Whiteboard plays a vital role in Design Sprints. Realtimeboard can be your digital whiteboard. There are a lot of possibilities of having it in your daily work life. Almost all creative work is possible with it.

    It was super easy to convert from the free version to the full version. Did not lose anything in the process and the added benefits of the full version are well worth the price.

    How easy it is to use and the ability to use the free version for a while thus enabling the ability to know if you really need to purchase the full version.

    Cons

    Can't think of anything just yet as we have less than 10 boards right now. It really is very easy to use.

    It is amazing instrument to discover how easy you can realize your vision, how fast and clear your process will be represented. All you need is here without any kind of borders, just you and your ideas.
    - Simple solutions for a difficult tasks: for designer, for business analitical, for a developer - you can build a schemes, organaze your workflow for a project and more, add links and references, images, all your want for expanding your creative field.
    - Amazing zoom - any type of a scale - for big ideas with detailed approach;

    It is about how interesting your work flow can be. How many elements in your project integrated. You can systemise information, clarifying tasks, find new approaches. Your investigation can be almost touchable. That is all develop your ideas more and more.

    We use it as a powerful brainstorming tool, even among colleagues in the same room. It allows us to conceptualise complex ideas with many components and put them all in one place if they relate to each other.

    Cons

    Sometimes some of the icons can be a little unclear as to what they do (although this may simply be a function of my slightly advanced age).

    Pros

    I like that RealtimeBoard is very simple and flexible to use. I do not have any more restrictions in my work, as before. I'm satisfied with simple objects that I can add and unlimited space in my actions. The most pleasant thing I've discovered for my work with this program is that I can cooperate with colleagues while being in different places. Another important plus is regular updates and training materials that help you understand how to use the program more efficiently. Thanks to RealtimeBoard I discuss working moments and exchange knowledge, information with my team. I do not need to contact team members to spend time on this, since all users of the program can see all the changes that occur in real time.

    Cons

    I like everything, and I'm very pleased with the program, which greatly simplifies my work. The only problem that I happened to learn is that sometimes documents are created in different sizes.

    The product itself it just so easy to use and so powerful. It has allowed us to effortlessly collaborate with international teams and proved to be far more useful than we ever even imagined. What makes this world-class is that their support is just as amazing as their product. They've helped to provide demos for our new users and are always super helpful with any questions I've ever had.

    Cons

    I honestly can't say that I have anything that I dislike about this product. Anything that I've even thought could be improved upon in the past has been improved upon. They are so good with acting upon the feedback they get from their customers. It's so refreshing to see a company that is so devoted to providing great user experience.

    Team collaboration and team whiteboards made easy.

    Pros

    It allows sharing and working on whiteboard spaces in realtime while simultaneously providing audio-video feedback between members. No additional software tools are required. Whiteboard provides enough basic tools and templates.

    Cons

    Video and audio quality in conference is worse than any other specialized software (Skype or similar). It lacks some features that google docs is having for example, but whiteboard system is quite ok.
