What is a simple collaborative online whiteboard?

I am looking for something that allows two or more people to collaborate on ideas. Ideally, something that doesn't require a signup. Something where you can easily share a link with new people. I am not looking for a full kitchen sink, just basic drawing features. Maybe with some pre-defined shapes like a box, circle, and triangles. Thanks!

    RealtimeBoard 2.0

    Web-based whiteboarding & team collaboration tool

    RealtimeBoard 2.0 can also be a good fit: simple as Sketch, but collaborative as Google Docs. Check it out here at Product Hunt! I talked to many Designers using this tool and what they really like 😍 is that it's incredibly simple to share and dicuss your work with clients💰 and developers🔧, because boards can be commented and viewed without signup🎉. Although for editing purposes personal account is required.

    I also stand by Realtimeboard. Great for visualizing just about anything, collaborating with your team, knowledge sharing.
    RealTimeBoard is incredibly polished, there is a very high level of maturity, everything seems to just work. It's fast and versatile and full of neat features like the ability to copy and paste a bunch of spreadsheet cells to get as many stickies on the virtual whiteboard in one stroke.

      Definitelly the best product I've used in the last couple of months. I'd love to add it to my daily routine as I did with trello and slack. Too bad that to really use it you need to pay $10 a month :(

      I advise anyone who prioritise visual representation of anything give it a try.

      There are multiple templates to chose from as a starting point and also you can always create your own.

      The biggest benefit is that you have unlimited space to add all elements of your visualisation.

    Deekit might be a good fit. If you want to spend a lot of money and get the kitchen sink, there's also Google's Jamboard but that's probably overkill. 😊
  3. One person would need a Google account, but you could set up a Google Drawing which has the simple features you wanted.

    I have used Google Drawing to run Remote design sprints and it works like a charm!

    Twiddla is a setup-free, web-based “meeting playground”. Just click on "Start a new meeting" to get started. You don't have to log in and the pre-defined basic shapes like a box, circle, and triangles are available. Share the URL with the team and they'll be able to join.

    Online whiteboard for visual collaboration

    Not quite sure how Mural hadn't already been suggested. The original online whiteboard, with a host of templates to get started with.

      I have used Mural for many years, but simply failed at onboarding any collaborators due to its high price.

      All the people I tried to invite to Mural left for Realtime Board. On RTB there is no friction to add an occasional friend or teammate into a project. The psychology of price and team increase is not well thought. I just generates frustrations.
