Milanote

Visual boards solution for organizing ideas and projects

About Milanote

Milanote is a cloud-based collaboration software designed to help creative teams manage storyboarding, creative writing and briefs, mind-mapping, note-taking, and brainstorming. It lets users create private boards and share projects with team members to collect feedback and ensure service quality.

Key features of Milanote include task management, real-time editing, content management, file sharing, project management, brainstorming, status tracking, and ideation. Each project comprises crucial information, such as plans, project assets, background data, conversations, and briefs, which can be shared across teams to collaborate via comments.

Milanote lets design teams organize various types of content in the visual boards, including PDFs, color swatches, design files, animated GIFs, videos, and more. It also offers templates that can be customized according to individual workflows.

Milanote’s drag-and-drop interface enables creative professionals to arrange files across moodboards, add notes to projects, and display every part of a creative project using a side-by-side view. Milanote Web Clipper can be installed on Google Chrome, which allows teams to instantly save links, images, and videos to existing boards from the web.

Milanote is awesome and an essential design organizational tool

Pros

I started using Milanote when it was in beta, when I was looking for a neater alternative to Trello. I do design work, so being able to put pictures and text wherever I want is really important. It's equally, important, though, that everything be neat and easy to organize.

I mostly work by myself with a handful of individual clients. I can work on Milanote without having to deal with excess team features, but still share the boards with clients via a "secret link". (They can also join the board fully if they're members.)

Milanote has also been steadily adding features that have really helped me to use it even more and with greater ease, particularly the Mac desktop app.

Pulling in links is especially useful, as it shows you some of the webpage as well as the URL itself. I also love that I can embed GIFs and have them work as they're supposed to. (Airtable, for example, will just show it as a still image in a larger view.)

Being able to show clients exactly what I'm talking about is huge, and the fact that it's easy to organize and make changes to really helps. It's standardized in its design but gives me everything I need.

Cons

There's no integration with Zapier yet. I believe that's on the roadmap, but it'll definitely make a difference when I can connect a particular design board with tasks on Todoist, for example.

Milanote is a creative workflow asset. It allows me to rapidly iterate on just about anything that's how versatile I've found it to be.

Pros

Milanote has an elegantly simple interface. It's great for capturing notes on the go, consolidating and mapping your research findings, organising your creative ideas, arranging all of the above into projects and using whatever system/workflow suits you (and your team, in realtime).

Cons

As a product, Milanote sits somewhere between a fully-fledged word processor and an online file storage service, like Dropbox. It's not either of those extremes, so manage your expectations! However, it is absolutely terrific at filling the void in between.

I started due to a recommendation of a youtuber, and I really loved it. Now I use the app on my phone and desktop, is great to show and explain ideas to my co workers and clients.

Pros

As a creator Im in love with this software, I tend to do a lot of visual moodboard to pitch ideas to clients of my agency,but also for me to develop new workflows, marketing strategies and more. With Milanote Im able to have all the ideas in one board and access to them with connectors so all of the strategy and workflows stays consistent. Also I have access to those boards from my phone.

Cons

It is limited to a certain amount of cards, but this is only in the free version. The paid one is really unexpensive and gives you a lot of great options.

I found this app extremely easy to use, and it is highly recommended for creatives as it embraces fully the "limitless board" model. Sadly, there is no mobile apps for Android yet. Pricing is too steep with no middle option.

Pros

Ease of use, tons of features that make it flexible specially for creative environments

Cons

No mobile apps. Pricing is too steep if you live in the Android ecosystem as there is no app for this system.

Milanote has made it possible for me to create reusable templates that I can apply countless times to different projects. And, it's helped me break down UX and UI to the smallest detail without losing focus or causing any confusion.

Pros

Milanote is a beautiful combination of UX and UI planning, and more. I've been able to use it for everything from website IA, moodboards, and portfolio design to resume-building and creative briefs. It's highly versatile. If you've ever used Trello, its Column and Note functions will feel pretty familiar. Another helpful feature is the ability to nest projects within each other. I.e., if you have a single project that has 10 parts, and each part has its own set of tasks, you can create a single column as the top-level board for the overall project. Then, you can create boards for each of the 10 parts, but have them all live within the top-level board. So, it becomes one self-contained column with everything related to that single project, and you can click into any of the 10 parts as needed. It's fantastic!

Cons

The only thing I would add to Milanote would be to have the ability to snap objects into place as you move them. The screen is set up with dots, sort of like a grid. This helps you line up items somewhat, but they're not always perfectly aligned with each other (they can end up slightly off from one another as you slide them around the screen).
