8 cool things you can do on Sprintbase (that you might not know about)

Here at Sprintbase, we never stop working to make your experience using our platform as easy, efficient and fun as possible. We love using your feedback to make your journey better, and to help you achieve even more amazing results.

So whether you’re new around here or have used the platform before, here are a few cool things you might not know you can do with Sprintbase – and that could make all the difference to your experience.

1. You can download a PDF of your entire journey

So what does a ‘PDF download’ mean in practice? This isn’t just a print screen of all the work you’ve done – this is the entire story of your journey, all in one place. In addition to showing you all the stages you went through during your project, it also comes with explanatory text, so that even those who weren’t involved with this work can gain an understanding of the progress you made. You can add your logo to it, it’s A4, printable, and something you can keep referring back to.

2. Gathering feedback on prototypes has never been easier


Finding out what people outside your project think about your ideas is such a crucial part of your sprint. But having to move back into your inbox and devise separate emails to each person could take hours. So, to simplify the process, Sprintbase automatically creates an email template showcasing your prototype and explaining what you’re asking of recipients (NB: They’re not shown any of your other work on the project in this email, so their reactions aren’t influenced).

3. Manage your profile and privacy settings

No two people using Sprintbase are the same, so you can edit your profile to suit your needs. Beyond changing your image, name and contact details, you can also opt in or out of notifications, such as ones that tell you when someone has commented on one of your notes, or how a sprint works. And you can opt out of your contributions being tracked by analytics too, if you’d like.

4. Pull images into a whiteboard from the web


You don’t want to have to have multiple browsers open so that you can grab all the images you need for a project. We get that, so we’ve made it possible to search the web and insert pictures straight into a whiteboard note.

5. Love emojis? We’ve got them.

When you’re trying to describe a feeling somebody expressed during an interview, your reaction to an idea, or you want to celebrate a particular finding, sometimes words aren’t enough. You can now choose from a set of emojis, so you can express yourself however you wish.

6. Start a note, right where you are

When you’re working on a big, virtual workspace, it’s frustrating to have to keep creating notes and then positioning them exactly where you want them to sit. So now on Sprintbase, you can right click anywhere on a board, and a note will appear exactly where your mouse is. Much easier!

7. Take advantage of bonus tools

In addition to the whole host of tools and guidance within Sprintbase, our team puts together regular, additional resources to help you get the best results from your sprints. For example, need help putting your ‘How might we?’ questions together? Check out our ‘How might we’ generator

8. Use Sprintbase to take your own innovation experience online

Does your organization already have its own innovation process, and all the tools and people you need to make it work? We can help you take it online.

Education Spotlight: Design Thinking at Riverside School

One of the most exciting aspects of working in design is its vast applicability. I’ve been fortunate enough to use design thinking to enhance learning and teaching experiences and am excited by the rise of human centered design in academic institutions around the world.

How to become a true design thinker

Design thinking is far more than a methodology. It is a way of thinking that can fundamentally shift your view of the world. Critics of design thinking may blame the process for their failures.
