Whiteboards and post-it notes help co-located teams brainstorm new ideas. But when your team is distributed over multiple timezones, brainstorming as a group requires more specialized tools to keep the new ideas organized.

Stormboard is a digital sticky note whiteboard tool for constant, consistent, and visual idea generation. Designed with remote teams in mind, you can collect ideas in ways that work best for your team—using text, images, video files, and more. Then take your team’s best ideas through the pipeline from formation, to discussion, then prioritization and organization, and finally, action. Whether you’re on the road, working from home, or in the office, Stormboard is a visual tool to create and act on your team’s ideas.

Plus, now that Stormboard integrates with over 1,000 apps using Zapier, you can facilitate your idea generation with automation.
