You may know Lucidspark as the dynamic brainstorming solution for teams—the canvas where anything is possible. While it’s true that Lucidspark is the best place to unlock creative ideas and hold powerful brainstorming sessions with others, there are so many other use cases for this powerful digital whiteboard.

In this blog post, we’ll explore nine ways that you can leverage Lucidspark to work more intuitively with your team. 


Lucidspark is a virtual whiteboard but not your average virtual whiteboard. Features like the timer, Collaborator Colors, and authors help give everyone a voice while keeping the team on task. There’s really no limit to what you can whiteboard in Lucidspark. And, because it’s updated in real time, you can open up a board from anywhere and collaborate with your team without missing a beat.

Every team can benefit from digital whiteboarding. Consider the following for your next meeting:

  • Use Lucidspark in meetings for a visual representation of your ideas.

  • Host an icebreaker at the start of your meeting to help participants focus and feel connected.

  • Gather feedback using Visual Activies to decide best how to move forward.
