I just want to take a moment and address some of the comments and also talk about our future 🚀
1️⃣ - We hear you. No one likes a half-baked feature. We had two options when working on this feature.
One was to wait another year until we get more feature parity and then release Whiteboards as a full feature.
Two was to release a beta as soon as it's an MVP and iterate the whole next year in conjunction with our awesome community to make sure we're building the feature you want.
We opted for option two! Let me be very clear though. We will be supporting Whiteboards full force as it is being built by a team of fully dedicated whiteboard power users. Expect frequent releases, lots of improvements, huge emphasis on community feedback, and a lot of love poured into it. 💜
2️⃣ - We understand that Whiteboards might not immediately replace Miro/Mural/Lucid/etc. for you, and that's okay.
We believe there is a gap in the market for tools that perfectly marry creativity with productivity. Personally, I am a right-side brain kind of thinker and work better with unstructured/free-flowing types of workflows. We felt that adding this feature would enable us to utilize the power of all that ClickUp has to offer! We have plans to improve our existing Mind Maps with Whiteboards, introduce org charts, let you create visual workflows that take action on your tasks, add relationships and lots more.
Additionally, why pay for two tools if you're able to meet your needs all inside of one platform?
At the end of the day, we want to provide value and make something that we ourselves would want to use.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the conversation and I want you to know that I'll be keeping a close ear to the ground here to make sure we can address things that are important to you regarding Whiteboards.
I can't wait to see how you use the feature!!! 😁
