Wondering how to facilitate an efficient brainstorming session?

Collaboration and creativity is the real strength of your team but to run successful brainstorming sessions that result in action can be a daunting task.

It's true brainstorms are creative but they are not willy-nilly. If you run them without the right structure you end up with chaos and not with actionable results.

Imagine if you could run brainstorming that works every time - how much better would your teams work?

Lost in meetings

Lost in meetings

Ideas get stuck in meetings.

Who's going to write down all of the ideas and put them in a system? You often leave a meeting with only 1% of the ideas written down; the rest are forever lost.

Time Intensive

Time Intensive

Calendars are packed.

We get it, everyone is busy - including your teammates. You might be able to organize an all-hands once a year on the teamcamp but can the brainstorm session really wait that long?



Creativity ends in chaos.

As ideas are thrown at the wall you take a step back and all you see is a chaos of hundreds of ideas. How are you going to listen to everyone's ideas and and end up with chaos?

"The set-up is very intuitive and easy to use. The platform can be used for several purposes, not only online brainstorming sessions."

Free Brainstorming Software

Brainstorming is a collaborative process of generating ideas and creative solutions. It can be used in a project setting, such as problem solving or planning, or in a personal setting for generating novel ideas. The goal of brainstorming is to come up with a large quantity of ideas, but the focus is on quantity rather than quality.

Brainstorming is essentially the first stage of innovation. However, managing it properly can be difficult, especially if one has to coordinate with remote individuals. Fortunately, new web-oriented brainstorming tools allow you to share ideas among others and work effectively, even if they are not in the same location.

It’s not enough to “mindmap” ideas. You need to move them forward. Let’s get real. It’s not about ideas. It’s about making them happen. Your team needs more than a brainstorming tool. Cut the clutter and empower your people with a structured workflow that turns ideas into action. Brainstorming is an important part of productive thinking. In order to get your creative juices flowing Ideanote provides a range of features to capture many ideas in a short amount of time and sort through them.

Why Choose Ideanote as your Brainstorming Tool

Ideanote's brainstorming software allows you to collaborate with your team on a single workspace, generating both many ideas and some quality ideas as well as discovering breakthrough insights.

With all the time, energy, and thought it takes to develop an idea for a business or project, it can be tough to figure out where to start. Brainstorming is a way to think about ideas in a group setting which can help you generate more ideas faster while also building on your teammates' ideas.

With easy collaboration on Ideanote you can brainstorm with friends or colleagues to generate ideas on any topic instantly. You can see changes made in real time to your mind map through the collaboration - which you are able to access online on multiple devices for on-the-go creativity. From sticky notes for yourself to real-time idea collection for remote teams, Ideanote is a robust way to brainstorm online.

You can invite individuals from all levels of an organization to freely generate ideas and solutions to a specific problem. Ideanote harnesses the potential of creativity by allowing the mind to tap into some of its most powerful resources — the subconscious and intuition. By using a group of people to help generate new ideas, the process produces more ideas in less time than would be possible if one person were working alone.

Participants can attach video, image, and link attachments directly to ideas when brainstorming with Ideanote. Linking ideas together adds additional visual help to sift through the ideas you and your team generate.

Collaboration features are easy to use without having to run around. You can tag, comment on posts, share posts, upload posts and take collaborative notes. Ideanote goes above-and-beyond, with the ability to customize how you want to collect ideas. You can get a Free trial of the paid plans or stick with our Free plan for unlimited brainstorming.
