How to brainstorm ideas with Lucidchart
Start with a template, a file, 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 as you brainstorm new ideas
Use hotkeys to quickly create shapes for new ideas and rapidly branch them together as you go. Or, manually drag-and-drop shape library symbols directly onto the canvas as you generate ideas.
Organize your thoughts
Simply click and drag your shapes to rearrange your ideas as needed, add containers to organize ideas that overlap, or group shapes together and apply formatting rules to identify themes or highlight distinctions.
Collaborate and share your brainstorm with others
Share your brainstorm document with others add and refine ideas collaboratively in real-time, or present your finished work with stakeholders in a format of your choice to get the feedback you need to move forward.
Create more diagrams to turn brainstorm ideas into reality
Use your finished brainstorm board to inspire and create other diagrams to further visualize and execute your entire project or process from start to finish. Explore templates, shape libraries, and features to make process maps, project timelines, data flow diagrams, Kanban boards and more.
