What are the best tools to replace the whiteboard for remote teams?

Our team gets together regularly and when we do the whiteboard is such a central tool. I'm curious if any other teams have found one or two tools to get the job done while not in the same room.

    Taskade lets you organize and visualize your structured data in hierarchy. You can switch between list view, kanban board, and mind map.

      My first use case is grocery shopping. That’s why until now I’ve been a loyal Wunderlist user. But Taskade is way easier for a few reasons: 1. I often make recipes and with Taskade it’s possible to copy and paste directly from my chrome tab to a list group. 2. I can keep a bunch of list groups with recipes and just incomplete the one I want to make (I normally buy for 1-2 recipes at a time) so I don’t need to keep remaking them from scratch. 3. I can see the recipes I want to buy in the same view as the other random stuff I need.

    • Used taskade for a while and love the product. I'd recommend anyone to give it a shot! It makes working with remote team members much, much easier and keeps everyone in sync.

    Miro is an awesome tool. My team uses it every day. It helps us to create clear communication between developers, designers, and product managers. Developers create architecture maps for product managers, designers, and product managers hold pair design session. We are starting work on every new feature in the Miro. Thank you Miro team!🙌

      Such a huuuuuuuge fan! I use RealtimeBoard for so many things - both in and out of work. From client projects to internal business planning to operation processes to personal planning, I can't stop raving about how much I love RTB to everyone I know. I'm also super impressed by the constant product iterations and feature updates that are constantly being released. Bravo, awesome work guys, I'm absolutely gushing but it's well deserved.

      I'm not a designer, but I use RTB a lot to create simple sketches for some of my ideas on our products with comprehensive text descriptions. One image worths of thousand words! My sketches helps our designers and developers to quickly understand what I'm talking about and how my ideas connect to other products (thanks to unlimited workspace). I used to use Google Presentations for these purposes before, but RTB just stolen my heart! Good luck to the RTB team! Great product deserves fast organic growth! :)

    Zenkit has AMAZING features and different views! You can just switch from Kanban to chart, kalendar, list or even a mind map. The opportunities are endless and I would recommend it to every team - no matter if big or small.

    • Using Zenkit for a few months now and can't see myself going back to my old tool. The team has done a phenominal job of building an application that addresses the need of power users, light users, and everything in between.

    • Edited my review to reflect the awesome response time to problem I encountered. Incredible, hard working team and their app reflects the care and dedication they have put into Zenkit. Keep up the great work, Zenkit!

    Nuclino

    Part knowledge base, part collaboration space 🧠

    We use Nuclino for all content-centered collaboration. I pretty flexible and works very much like a whiteboard, you can include anything from text and images to live embeds from other tools. Everything is in real time and works quite well for our remote members and freelancers.

      Excellent product which is on the right track. In my view the pricing is too high for this stage with 5 Euro/user/ month. G Suite costs 4 euro for it's vast service portfolio. For us a price point at 1 or 2 Euro would feel comfortable.

    • Nuclino definitely deserves to be as popular as Slack and Trello. Like Slack and Trello, Nuclino focuses on one task and does a brilliant job at it. I really hope this stays actively maintained!

      The adoption by our team was impressive, and Slite makes our knowledge management a breeze

      We've been using Slite for few months, and we can't be more happy. Best benefit is that it's a perfect way to improve transparency inside our team and to onboard new teammates!

      Very impressed for first version launch. The Slack plugin is super handy, so you can launch a new board with just a command. Right now, they seem to be having their servers overloaded, so load times are very long. This is a good thing though :) Congrats team, well done 👏🏼

      It is a good free whiteboard that has the potential to be very useful in online learning between teachers and students. Would love to see more tools added in the future.
