About Jamboard

Jamboard is a collaboration management software, which helps businesses create and manage virtual workspaces to capture and discuss ideas. The platform enables users to directly import images, documents, spreadsheets, slides, and more to a digital canvas from the web or local drives.

Jamboard includes handwriting and shape recognition functionality, which allows administrators to translate signatures, notes, and other drawn information into digital documents. It offers a host of features such as access management, recent files history, sticky notes, drawing tools, and more. The built-in co-authoring capabilities let participants use multiple devices to highlight, comment, and upload content using a real-time whiteboard.

Jamboard allows users to create customizable jams or workspaces, add objectives and project details, give suggestions through annotations, assign tasks, and invite team members to meetings. Teams can also share PDF or images of workspaces via URL links or email and import content from Google Drive and other G Suite applications.

My Go-To for Brainstorming!

Reviewed on 2021/01/06

Overall I have had a great experience with this product, it's very user-friendly!

Pros

Jamboard is great for brainstorming with teammates during virtual meetings. It has been a great solution for us since we have all been working from home during the pandemic. Our Product team also asked me how they would be able to continue doing whiteboarding sessions with candidates since we can no longer do in person interviews. I was happy to be able to recommend this software to them. Jamboard is great for taking notes and presenting concepts in an easy to understand and visually appealing way.

Cons

I would like to be able to write text directly on the board without needing to use a sticky note since that can be distracting.

Even when my first use wasn't the best, I had curiosity to see if Jamboard evolved to better or it will become a Google Wave Case, so few days ago I checked how was working now and I have the nice surprise that Jamboard has new features.

Pros

Jamboard has a user proof interface.
This is really-really great to share ideas when you are in that kind of remote meetings sessions where people never get to an agree.
The "shapes" feature added is without any doubts THE FEATURE that Jamboard was needing.
Clean to use

Cons

The first time using Jamboard was a bit uncomfortable: Shapes feature wasn't added and the drawing tool wasn't very polished. I tried to share an idea, and sadly my pulse is not the better, so finally my poor draw took the lead rol in the meeting. I guess that the first attempt was almost duplicate the "board" experience, and for that reason that tool wasn't included, but now it's totally comfortable to be used.

Jamboard allows team members to take a deeper dives into the do-outs of a meeting. Rather than just ask questions, suggest comments, or pose other ideas - we're able to get all this down in writing and more.

Pros

I like that it is a product of Google and as a consequence, Jamboard integrates well with G Suite. It's a nice extension that gives people what they want during remote meetings: collaboration, visibility, and transparency, and fun!

Cons

When too many people use the platform as the same time, some post-it notes go missing. I'm not sure why that is the case. It could be a glitch or technical error, perhaps?

Collaborative Whiteboard integrated into G-suite - Easy , Simple but just fine

A simple and easy tool for the remote teams who need a collaborative, shared & real-time Whiteboard. Has the necessary features but only the basic ones. It is integrated in G-suite. Google doesn't market this well to users, so not every employee would know about its existence.

Pros

It is already a part of G-suite, so massive effort is saved and little reason to choose any external product. It just acts like any other document or productivity application from Google- easy to collaborate, store in G-Drive, Share with Colleagues, works in Cloud, etc. It is also simple to use and quite straightforward. This application solved our need for a online shared whiteboard requested by team working remotely.

Cons

It is a web application, so you have be online just like other G-suite applications. Further it may be too simple and skimps on certain features. You can't add in files, only images are permitted. The UI is not great as the actual area for working is small due to large headers like other usual applications- Google sheets, Google docs,etc. Further, people didn't knew about this and the IT team had to educate about the existence of this software.

It allows me to colloborate and work with peers and my students and has brought immersive and lively discussions.

Pros

I liked that you are able to colloborate and share thoughts and responses in a live platform.

Cons

I have used Padlet and it took me a few minutes to discern between Padlet and Jamboard.
