Spill Your Thoughts With Your Remote Team With Walling

As the world continues its fight against offices, it has become necessary to have a way to brainstorm with your remote team.

Previously you’d huddle together in a conference room, somebody would get the conversation started with something trivial or grand, and ideas would flow.

There’d be good ideas, bad ideas, meh ideas, to-dos, connections, and lists of all sorts.

There might be a whiteboard. There might be a shared screen. There might be a moleskin. There might be some laptops.

Either way, there’d definitely be a way to keep track of it all.

One of the people on our team said at her previous company, she used shared Microsoft Word Docs to keep track of all the verbal mayhem being spilled. There’d be 8–10 contributors in a doc, and everybody would be giving their two cents.

During this remote world, this can still be done, but is it as effective? We think not.

So what do you do?

How do you brainstorm with your team in the distributed office of the future? You use Walling.

Why is Walling better than a shared Google or Word Doc?

So what’s so special about Walling?

It’s all in the connections.

In Walling you enter ideas into a Daily Desk then connect ideas with Nodes.

With the Daily Desk it’s no longer necessary to decide where an idea should go. You just jot it down. You can add to-dos, bullets, numbers, images, headers, and links. The designers have been careful not to give too many options or else it will hinder creativity.

Ideas are put in Bricks and every day you get a new Daily Desk.

Walling is meant to be plug-and-play with your remote team.

The beauty of Nodes

Nodes are wonderful. They let you quickly sort through ideas.

Nodes are basically tags. Your ideas are already searchable, and Nodes make it so you can connect and visualize your Daily Desk ideas.

Nodes are very useful and in the future, we really hope Walling will make Nodes automatic based on their AI. That’d be sweet! Currently you manually add Nodes.

Create a Walling

You can create a Wall based on a Brick to further organize ideas.

The key to Walling is that unlike Evernote, Google Docs, etc. your brain dumps are way, way, way more organized.

This is so great for virtual distributed teams and those who find it important to visualize.

Walling is available for pretty much all browsers and all devices.
