What Is an Idea Board?

The idea board is a tool that makes collating the ideas of a group much simpler. The idea board helps collect and organize ideas in a visually pleasing way that is easier to refer to and understand. Anything - images, quotes, numbers, sticky notes, etc. - can go on the board to clarify the idea. Although in the past many relied on a whiteboard or a conference room wall to create their idea board, now they are turning to online tools like Creately with an infinite canvas to make the process seamless.

How to Create an Idea Board?

  • When you are sending out that calendar invites to the selected team members for the meeting, ensure that they are notified of the goal of the meeting. This way they can prepare for it ahead of time.
  • Once everyone is settled down in the meeting room, open Creately and create a document. You can name it and share it by adding everyone’s email addresses. Now everyone in the room - including those working remotely - can access the canvas from their own devices. Or you can assign a facilitator who will take down everyone’s ideas and add them to the canvas.
  • Don’t restrict your idea board to just text and stats. It’ll be easier to understand if you add images as well to explain what’s on your mind. You can simply import images, clipart, etc. from your own devices into Creately. Or you can use the built-in Google image search to quickly find images from the web.
  • At first welcome ideas from everyone without rejecting any as bad ideas. If you keep rejecting more ideas than accepting them, it’ll discourage your team, which in turn will make them unproductive during the process.
  • Later, during the analysis phase, when you are categorizing and prioritizing ideas, you can decide what to do with the suggestions that don’t immediately make sense to go ahead with.
  • You can separate the bad ideas by removing them from the idea board, or by creating a backlog and adding them there so you can refer to them later.
  • Once everything is neatly organized, you can share your idea board with the rest of the people in your organization and even outside stakeholders with edit or review access. Easily capture their suggestions with inline comments.
