Milanote Just Works!

4.0 2 years ago

Comments: Milanote is a great software that allows for quick and easy iteration of ideas using their built-in flexible tools to mindmap, organize, and sketch out almost any idea you could have!

Pros:

Milanote is a very versatile solution to ideation and whiteboarding that does a great job. It is perfect for online moodboards, storyboarding, documentation, and mindmaping.

Cons:

I wish rather than having a card limit for all boards there was a board limit and a card limit per board. As is, the software doesn't have enough PAID features to make the paid version worth it, and the free version is lacking enough to use it as anything other than an idea board. I still prefer Jira or Trello for project management, and PureRef for my moodboards (even though that doesn't allow for collaboration and isn't online).

I have a love/hate relationship with MIlanote!!!

3.0 2 years ago

Comments: Milanote needs rethink it's membership program. There needs to be something that attracts customers back on a weekly basis. And in the current freemium service, there is a reason to go back and use Milanote once your 100 boards are used up. I believe Milanote should give users 5-10 free boards every month. I believe this will get people to use the program more often, more comfortable using the program, and collaborate with their people, eventually purchasing like I did.

Pros:

Milanote is fun and easy to use. I really like this tool a lot. Whenever I need to storyboard an idea, I go to Milanote.

Cons:

The free boards and subscriptions don't make any sense. Milanote gives 100 free boards. That's wonderful!!! However, once you use up the 100 boards, your only option is to purchase a monthly subscription regardless if you use one new board or 1000 new boards. I only use Milanote in seasons, meaning I use it for 20 days each quarter. I purchased a yearly subscription and after 6 months I realized I only used it for about 40 days. So purchasing a yearly subscription for 80 days of use is a waste of money. I did purchase it one month at a time, but that was annoying.

Milanote's Evolutionary Journey 😇✈️😊

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: Collaboration, streaming work flow, better project management, this software is a must for any business, 5*****'s.

Pros:

It has so many features, post graphic previews, pdf document sharing, brainstorming sessions, video content, website development, project management, team management, and last but not least, a great tool at a great price.

Cons:

When this software came along, I was fairly disappointed, I compared it to the likes of cling. Since its evolutionary journey has progressed, the company have listened to feedback of its users. That initially was the big hang up. Not listening. It had so much potential, just didn't tap into what the customer saw and wanted. Now however, things are very different, and its a pleasure to work with.

Nice tool for millenial teams

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: I used the app quite a lot at the beginning and tried to pull all my colleagues into using it. After some projects we realized that the free tier is slightly unusable for us and so we moved to something else.

Pros:

I like the overall appearance of the tool and the way it allowed me to store ideas and data in one place and share it with others. Visually and simply via drag-and-drop.

Cons:

The structuring of content in layers and "buckets" went so far it became nearly impossible to know where what asset is stored.
