Better Online Whiteboard

5.0 2 years ago

Pros:

Flawless, virtually excellent, for working with remote teams and design team collaboration

Cons:

Sincerely ? Nothing at the moment, maybe there could be a higher limit for the free plan.

A simple tool for whiteboarding sessions or workshops

4.0 2 years ago

Comments: FigJam is very useful and intuitive online collaboration tool. Although it's a very new product as compared to other competitors in market, but it's 'simplicity' makes it stand out from the rest.

Pros:

I use FigJam for product ideation or brainstorming sessions with my team. I also use it to build basic workflows or task flows for client reviews. The UI is very clean and simple. I love that multiple stakeholders and team members can work on FigJam board simultaneously without any lag. Whenever I need to discuss any product idea with business stakeholders or clients (who are not tech savvy), this is my go-to tool, as it is very easy for them to understand and use.

Cons:

There is no offline version, so if you don't have internet connection, you will not be able to work on any updates. And it doesn't have lot of rich functionalities like Miro.

FigJam is an awesome digital whiteboard for users of Figma

4.0 2 years ago

Comments: Designing features for an existing large product, from beginning to end in Figma - from discovery and analysis (using FigJam as a repository), through concepting to design iterations and prototyping, all in Figma. FigJam was a flexible repository for all reference materials and artifacts throughout.

Pros:

FigJam is best when used alongside Figma, of course. The perfect integration between designs and prototypes and whiteboards makes for a seamless end-to-end process toolset.

Cons:

FigJam is less attractive to teams that are not using Figma. In that case, other tools are more mature and powerful (though FigJam is growing on a consistent basis.)

Bringing idea to life with FigJam.

5.0 2 months ago

Comments: Compared to other whiteboarding software, FigJam's tight incorporation with Figma makes it a unique and powerful solution for design team members like me. The capability to bring in design elements and prototypes directly into the brainstorming space is priceless. I enjoyed this product. I would love to suggest this to everyone.

Pros:

FigJam is breaking down silos between our designer and non-designer teams. The intuitive interface and friendly whiteboard make it easy for everyone to give ideas, regardless of their designing experience. It's become our one of the most using platform for cross-functional brainstorming and workshops.

Cons:

The cursor chat feature can be a little annoying at times, especially during large discussion sessions. And while the search facility is helpful, it could be enhanced for getting specific elements within a complex FigJam file.

The soon to be market leader in digital canvases?

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: Overall a great experience and FigJam is a strong contender for the number one spot of digital canvases in the future.

Pros:

FigJam has really developed in a positive way the last year or so since it has been out. The integration into Figma of course being one of the major pros allowing you to keep all your files in one place. This feature is better than one might realise at first but it really solves a lot of problems. For example if you want to collaborate with stakeholders who have seen your design in Figma previously they will quickly feel right at home with FigJam.

Cons:

There is one issue that I have with FigJam and that is how you share access to collaborators that do not have a Figma account. This feature is missing today but (hopefully) on the way and would make a world of difference. As it is today you have to create a Figma account to access FigJam which just makes some stakeholders more reluctant to use the software.
