Pros: -Free for Educators to use with students

-Works extremely well with Google Suite, Microsoft 365 Business

-Great alternative to SmartBoard

-Pen feature is very smooth

Cons: -Takes some getting used to.

-Can have a Prezzi, dizzying affect

- Users need to be taught how to use

Overall: I'm a middle school teacher. I use the boards in two fashions: 1) for student collaboration, and 2) for displaying class notes, videos, distributed materials, and board writing. In my school we have a SmartBoard (aka - DumbBoard). The DumbBoard software is slow to load and wastes too much time, so the RealTimeBoard became a solution.

For student collaboration, I have and idea section and work product selection. Students can determine if the final work they upload is accessible to me or other members. They can share comments, photos, and general ideas. For classroom shared material, student can vote. I find it best to visually think of the processes and what you want the kids to create. Then create a template board. Finally, create your classes. The import of excel or google sheets lists make it incredibly easy to add student names to the boards.

For my class notes, I typically create a line across the middle of the board. Below the line is the homework section, above the line is the classwork. I create a boxes with the daily objective (Students will... in order to...) and upload the materials (view only via google docs). I can insert youtube videos and other documents (even pdfs, Microsoft docs, pictures, web pictures and websites, and charts). I create a frame around each of the lessons so that when students are absent they may view the materials. When they come in and tell me they didn't go to the site, I hand them a computer so they can visit the site. Students who are absent, getting tutored outside of class, or parents wanting to see what it is we are doing can easily access the public board, which does NOT contain any student information.

Pros: "I love realtime board. Especially all of the updates and templates that have come recently. We first started using real time board back in 2014 but stopped till just recently. The new features really make it a go to solution for our team especially since we are in two different locations and need t collaborate daily. Real-time board helps us to do that and meet our goes. " Can use the on PC, web, mobile phone. Love all of the features and versatility. I like the large viewing area. The sticky notes and the templates that are provided are also very helpful. We started using Real-Time board instead of Microsoft One Note. Being able to see where the other members of the team are pointing to is a huge plus as well.

Cons: Wish there was pricing for a 2 man team. We are small team and 40 a month at his point would be too high. Totally worth it for a team of 5 but would like to have the option of a small team like 2-3 people.

Pros: Incredible, unbelievable flexibility that can finally keep up with my mind and my team! A wide open space with no precepts to interfere with rapid ideation, solutioning, organizing - anything we need. AWESOME! The UX has been incredibly well thought out. It has nailed keyboard shortcuts, mouse control, tablet....the UX auto adjusts to your input method and NOTIFIES you that it does so. Unreal. All the tools work as you expect, every detail has been thought out, every rough edge and interruption to FLOW has been removed. I can't emphasize enough how smooth the flow is and the fact that I have had ZERO "wtf are you doing?!" moments using the tool - rare for me because I am exceptionally demanding and impatient with my tools. One of the best software products I've used in years. Thanks guys.

Cons: If I switch away from an RTB tab then later switch back, the long load time is kind of a drag :( Not a huge deal but it would be nice if it was fixed - the gap really interrupts thought process and flow during fast moving sessions. Not sure it's resolvable, but it would be nice :)

Overall: A ton of benefits - it's allowed me to plan with a bigger grasp of the big picture while being able to capture all the details when needed. I've ditched 2 or 3 other productivity tools (to do tools, tasking tools, tracking tools) because RTB does it all and does it better. LOVE. IT.

Pros: I like that RealtimeBoard is very simple and flexible to use. I do not have any more restrictions in my work, as before. I'm satisfied with simple objects that I can add and unlimited space in my actions. The most pleasant thing I've discovered for my work with this program is that I can cooperate with colleagues while being in different places. Another important plus is regular updates and training materials that help you understand how to use the program more efficiently. Thanks to RealtimeBoard I discuss working moments and exchange knowledge, information with my team. I do not need to contact team members to spend time on this, since all users of the program can see all the changes that occur in real time.

Cons: I like everything, and I'm very pleased with the program, which greatly simplifies my work. The only problem that I happened to learn is that sometimes documents are created in different sizes.

Pros: RealtimeBoard has become an integral part of my workflow.

It is:

Intuitive and hassle-free to use

Lightweight and available everywhere

In rapid development-constantly improving the core product

I use it for:

Everything from early stage ideation to larger scale mapping and analysis

Collaboration with other designers on my team

Co-creative workshops and interviews with users and clients

The remote-work version of everything above

Presentations, working documents, and even interim reports.

Cons: On my view, there are no major drawbacks with RealtimeBoard.

However, I find the pricing model a minor hindrance. Although it suits my current situation just fine, it was a bit rigid when I worked in a three-person team.

Overall: In early-stage product development, no-one wants to pay for the time it takes for working documents to look good. This does not mean they don't want the documents to be clear, concise, and understandable, and it absolutely does not mean that they want good ideas and analyses to get lost in the clutter. In a paper-post it-CAD/DTP-workflow this is often the case. RealtimeBoard adresses all these issues and is a true gamechanger for the design industry.

Thank you!

Pros: Very advanced - tons of control, so many features; all useful. Very fast and reliable and addictive. Beautifully engineered, easy to use. Boards can be made public so anyone can comment without logging in, if you want.

Cons: I miss one feature compared to Stormboard which we used before (and is now hugely inferior) which is 'substorms' (which were effectively a board 'inside' a post it note; great for deep diving into a big idea) otherwise, very hard to fault RTB!

Overall: Really helps our largely remote team collaborate in so many different ways, in a really fun, creative and productive way. We co-created our business plan on RTB. We use it for gathering newspaper clippings relevant to our startup. I wireframe our app in it. My colleague built the skeleton for our investment deck in this.. it's great for so many things beyond brainstorms.

Pros: Ease of Use - the team members with whom I collaborate online using Realtimeboard are not necessarily the most computer literate. Yet of all the online web services we use to accomplish our virtual team collaborative tasks, these same individuals have the least problem mastering Realtimeboard. That says it all! Integration - the recent integration that delivers messages on updates to a board directly to the Slack discussion forum associated with that board means team members can stay focused in the team collaboration environment (Slack) and don't need to jump around from website to website to see what is happening.

Cons: As a facilitator on online courses which have a short duration of ten to thirteen weeks, the obvious necessity of a paid account for more than three participants is an obvious shortcoming. The service *is* worth the fee demanded and the price *is* competitive, but obviously, many of the first time users are not business people. Realtmeboard should rethink their Trial package for special circumstances like ours.

Pros: It is amazing instrument to discover how easy you can realize your vision, how fast and clear your process will be represented. All you need is here without any kind of borders, just you and your ideas. - Simple solutions for a difficult tasks: for designer, for business analitical, for a developer - you can build a schemes, organaze your workflow for a project and more, add links and references, images, all your want for expanding your creative field. - Amazing zoom - any type of a scale - for big ideas with detailed approach; - Simple steps for regisrtation and share.

Cons: It is about how interesting your work flow can be. How many elements in your project integrated. You can systemise information, clarifying tasks, find new approaches. Your investigation can be almost touchable. That is all develop your ideas more and more.

Pros: Regular updates.

Being able to create tons of separate boards and share with team people is great.

Being able to comment on specific boards is amazing.

Being able to collaberate with team members and clients is great!

Cons: Boards with a lot of content may be slow in some cases, making the attached media slow to display. But this does not affect the user experience.

Overall: It helped me visually collaborate with my team of designers and clients, making revision processes infinitely faster.

Pros: You don't need much to understand how to use so Its really helpful when you are adding new teammates to a project. Really flexible, aside from having a bunch of really cool templates that can help you get started it is a really flexible tool.

Cons: Maybe a bit hard to understand zoom and how small or big things should and can be. A on-boarding or "read this first" might be helpfull feature to let teams know what relevant now

Pros: The product itself it just so easy to use and so powerful. It has allowed us to effortlessly collaborate with international teams and proved to be far more useful than we ever even imagined. What makes this world-class is that their support is just as amazing as their product. They've helped to provide demos for our new users and are always super helpful with any questions I've ever had.

Cons: I honestly can't say that I have anything that I dislike about this product. Anything that I've even thought could be improved upon in the past has been improved upon. They are so good with acting upon the feedback they get from their customers. It's so refreshing to see a company that is so devoted to providing great user experience.

With staff all over the globe, sharing wireframe ideas is now an absolute breeze, love it.

Pros: I love real-time board. It really is real-time.

It's the small things for us that really work well, for example you can see each other's mouse position, so as we are discussing things over the phone on a conference call, you can highlight and circle things with your mouse that everybody will see happening instantly.

He boards are unlimited in size, so you can expand and be as creative as you need to be without worrying about running out of white board.

As for the whiteboard itself, so simple to use: you can add boxes, add notes, pop up notes, tables, etc.

Overall, it's an integral part of our team now. Thank you.

Cons: There's now much I can say I like least. But there is one annoyance. There isn't a concsistency with the keyboard controls between web app and Mac app. We work on multiple machines so don't always know what to expect when we start using it.

Pros: It allows sharing and working on whiteboard spaces in realtime while simultaneously providing audio-video feedback between members. No additional software tools are required. Whiteboard provides enough basic tools and templates.

Cons: Video and audio quality in conference is worse than any other specialized software (Skype or similar). It lacks some features that google docs is having for example, but whiteboard system is quite ok.

Overall: Team collaboration and team whiteboards made easy.

Pros: Intuitive interface,

ability for multiple members at various locations to watch & use in real time,

attentive, responsive support team

Cons: Browser version on my touchscreen tablet didn't always respond to touch commands correctly;

currently a bit difficult to see the color code used on an existing object (but an enhancement is in the works)

Overall: I am developing very complex software suite & am responsible for the User Experience. RealTimeBoard has made it easy to design the primary interface & screens as well as flow charts. With the ability to add comments & sticky notes I can expand on ideas for review later by the programmers. Better yet we can connect via phone or Skype and work on the boards together as if we were in the same room. BEST OF ALL has been their customer support. They respond quickly & really saved me when I inadvertently deleted the wrong board. They're constantly improving the system & attentive to user's input. Kudos.

Pros: I've been using RealtimeBoard for close to two years and it has become an integral tool for our design team. Simple, intuitive, fluid and powerful. The variety of templates included can be a great starting point for many project. Many of them have even given our team ideas of how to gather information more effectively. Honestly, I can't recommend this software any more and felt it necessary to sing some praises when due.

Cons: Wish the sticky recognizer would extract text and create an app native sticky instead of cutting out the image lol. I'm half teasing. The fact that it actually recognizes stickies is quite impressive ;)

Comments: This is leaps and bounds ahead from collaborating on Google Docs and the increase in productivity is well worth the price.

Pros: Low-friction interface for remote teams make it easy to get started immediately with collaborating on brainstorms and large-canvas activities. Full-featured interface and fluid navigation experience allows you to focus on the work you're collaborating on.

Cons: A while ago there were issues with navigation if RealTimeBoard defaults to wrong navigation mode for your setup (mouse vs. keyboard); they have since fixed this by automatically detecting whether you are using a mouse or a trackpad and applying the optimal navigation mode.

After trying several real time tools, I came along realtimeboard.

I have access to many other systems and methodologies but Realtimeboard offers me a platform that has an extremely easy uptake for newbies (i.e. people I work with for a certain project)

Cons: None that I can think about. In the beginning it did not have that many features but it has grown in leaps and bounds. Even right in the beginning Realtimeboard was extremely usable.

Comments: This is such a great planning tool, especially with more and more people working remotely. It's harder to have IRL whiteboarding and planning sessions, and often conference calls just won't do. RTB broadens the possibilities for strategic planning sessions and collaboration when you don't have the option of being in the same place at the same time. I just love it.

Pros: I have found Realtime Board to be extremely helpful in my planning, organization, brainstorming, strategy work and project ideation, particularly when it comes to collaborating. I am a huge fan of Gamestorming and whiteboarding and it's so nice to have the ability to capture and save work that used to only exist on post-its.

Cons: The UI takes a little adjustment, but other than that, I can't really think of any cons. And, since I first started using RTB, the UI has improved, so I think it's something they pay attention to and update.

One of the most amazing tools out there

Pros: The tool is simple to use and is very versatile. I use if for almost anything, from diagrams of processes and campaigns to mind maps. The sharing functionality makes it awesome for working with remote teams.

Cons: To be honest there's nothing I can find I dislike about this product. Maybe add a changelog to boards?

Pros: As a consultant working remotely with clients, realtime board lets me visually organize ideas and communicate effectively over meetings. Additionally, for all clients, it allows for a space to brainstorm and collaborate without having to worry about the cleaning staff erasing important info! Really great tool!

Cons: At this point, I really do not have any complaints with RealTimeBoard. I have not tried to use it beyond its function as a digital whiteboard.

Its a great tool for both distributed and real time collaboration.

Comments: Fantastic software; being in a corporate where email is king, this is such a refreshing way of working on a project.

Pros: Helps keeping all thoughts, research, processes in one place and sharing with others; no more going back and forth on email and trying to find attachments and latest updates.

Cons: Sometimes takes a little long to load but it's not a hinderance. Looking forward to using it more and figuring out even more of the functionality.

We're loving realtime board and it's flexibility for use in so many different areas of our planning and design process.

Comments: I really love this product. I was looking at other options that had MUCH higher price tags are far more limited functionality. I am really glad I found this.

Pros: - super easy to use - great for those of us who think more fluidly than just a spreadsheet or list - awesome for collaboration - allows comments by non-account holders, which is absolutely critical to enable collaboration - the price is amazing - haven't used the JIRA integration yet but that was a key factor in my decision to use this over other similar products

Cons: I don't see many cons. It could use more program and project management related pre-built templates, but really the ones that are included are pretty great.

Comments: Overall, it's 1000 times better.

Pros: It helps you with almost all tasks that you do on a physical whiteboard. You can sketch, map, ideate, etc. on it. And, it's infinite - you can keep adding content and elements as much as you want. The ready-made templates are great to start with any real-world process or method. Real-time collaboration also works like a magic as you work with everyone in-person.

Cons: Sometimes, it takes a lot of time to load. Maybe, it's obvious because it has to load a lot of elements. Rarely, we faced issues like a few elements not loading, but refreshing your board solves this problem.

Comments: Simple and clear online whiteboard and free for up to 3 users. No experience with customer support so only 3 stars. Not loads of features but all you need for a basic whiteboard and the plus side is that it is very simple to use. Excellent planning tool - especially if participants are working in multiple locations as you can all collaborate at once in real time.
