Let your creativitiy flow with Collaboard

For what it offers, it is really good and very handy... I know there are still a lot of things that can be improved but as of now, it is really very useful for me... I use it for making diagrams and taking notes... Illustrating is a breeze with collaboard.

Pros

I like collaboard because it is very easy to use, I didn't have a hard time understanding it right away when I first used it. It is also very convenient since it is cloud-based, I can access my boards anytime as well as share access to my clients and friends. Making mind-maps, illustrations, userflows, UX flows can be done with more flexibility in Collaboard.

Cons

Sometimes it is kinda slow in loading media like images... Also there's no way to embed external media...would really be nice if you could embed scripts or iframes...

Reasons for Choosing Collaboard

Colloaboard has more freedome in designing your mindmaps and illustration, it just fits to the my use cases.

Reasons for Switching to Collaboard

I wanted to make life easier and it seems that collaboard was able to meet my needs.

Dear Edward, thank you for your positive feedback. For your information, there is an "embed" feature in Collaboard where you can insert iFrame Code or Website-url. It is in the left menu at the end. You can find more information about how to do it at https://help.collaboard.app/how-do-i-embed-iframes-and-other-applications-in-collaboard. Best regards, The Collaboard Team

Bye bye Mural, hello Collaboard

It is a great alternative for Mural (used before). You love it if you want to explain or create models/schemes. Must have for marketing/software if you want to be clear for customer when describing proces or function.

Pros

+ Great price to functionality ratio. + In most cases it is easy for learn and use (with one major issue). + A lot of pre-defined templates that you can use (or inspire) + Sharing option via link (non-registered) or closed group (registered collaboration) + Presentation mode (with timer if needed) + Integration with Zoom meeting + Grid with "snap to grid" mode when editing + adding videos from Youtube

Cons

- no possibility to save and load "pre-sets" like colours, fonts etc - I have to select all options everytime or create one object and then copy it as a "preset" for others. It should have a "bin" with presets and thanks to that I could select something that is previously configured (like Red memo stick with Roboto italic font)

Reasons for Switching to Collaboard

Much cheaper than Mural with functions that I need.

Hi Rafa?, Thank you very much for your review and for your feedback. Did you know that you can use standard settings for fonts, colors, cards, and connectors? This might solve one of your issues.

The poorest execution of a great idea

Overall, it has been a horrible experience. I think they should mature their product. It has a lot of glitches. Also, the UI is awful. I don't really care about that, my primary concern is with function ability, and I think that's collaboard main issue. I really wanted this to work for me, but unfortunately is an inferior product.

Pros

This software was supposed to be amazing. The infinite board feature, and the capabilities to embed entire webpages or videos for example are remarkable. The idea is that you can use it as a virtual and infinite board of ideas. You can share it with students, so the tutorials becomes very instructive.

Cons

The problem is that it is poorly executed. Collaboard is in a very early stage of development. I don't know if they were ready to launch. You can't write in the board, because there is some horrible lagging in the system, so your words came out as weird lines. If you try to group a set of elements, it disappears, so you lose all of your content. Then, if you write to support, they insinuate it's your laptops fault (even when I provided proof that a similar app was working just fine). Which is weird because I can run very modern games in it, and also other virtual boards like aww app. They tell you they are in shock (for the content loss) and that they are going to see the problem right away. But you never hear from them again. Also, they take 2 weeks to respond and then tell you that your mail magically has gone to spam. (I believed them the first time).

Reasons for Switching to Collaboard

For the price

Hello Alejandro, we are sorry to hear that you faced some difficulties working with Collaboard. We are investigating your case. Normally people do not face the issues you describe, so this must be something very specific.

Effective whiteboarding

A cost effective tool to enable me to use whiteboards just as easily as if we were doing it in the room.

Pros

It is easy to get started to create whiteboards and start using them. One benefit is how easy it is to create whiteboards when I am running training courses that I can then invite my delegates to use. Unlike some others I looked at it was allowed when some delegates were blocked from using some outside sites.

Cons

The mind mapping could be better, but I didn't buy it as mindmapping software so that feature isn't essential and is more of a free bonus to the whiteboard.

Reasons for Choosing Collaboard

Cost and the fact it wasn't blocked by one of my clients.

Dear Stuart, thank you very much for your feedback. We are glad that you appreciate the application for online workshops, as we have created the facilitator tools to make a trainer's life easier. It is great that you are pointing out the possibility to add outside users like customers as guests quickly to the board, event without registration. Best regards, The Collaboard Team

Starke App aus Europa

Pros

Collaboard ist eine sehr intuitiv zu benutzende Software. Die meisten Funktionen erklären sich von selbst. Und wenn nicht, dann helfen die vielen Videos auf der Homepage weiter.

Cons

Einen großen Nachteil habe ich noch nicht bemerkt.

Reasons for Choosing Collaboard

Vor allem die Möglichkeit, dass man gezielt Inhalte in eine Abstimmung einbeziehen kann und nicht nur eine globale Abstimmung für alle Inhalte starten kann ist für mich ein echter Vorteil der App!
