How to use our online brainstorming tools
Start with a template, list, or blank canvas
In Lucidchart, you can choose an existing template in our library, import a TXT or CSV file to generate shapes automatically, or start from scratch with a blank canvas.
Add shapes to your brainstorming board
Drag and drop sticky notes or mind map shapes from the shape library onto your canvas. Press "Enter" to create new shapes quickly and easily.
Organize your thoughts
Use swimlanes to organize your sticky notes and mind map shapes, or group them together using colors and other formatting options to identify themes or highlight ideas.
Create additional diagrams to turn ideas into reality
Create process flows, wireframes, user journey maps, or kanban boards to visualize your project execution plan. Use the ideas from your brainstorming board to inform your goals and processes.
Collaborate, analyze, improve, and share
Work with stakeholders to identify areas of ownership and collaborate on your plans. Share your sticky notes boards and other diagrams to get the feedback you need to move forward.
