You can now use Microsoft Flow to automate your workflow to make data transfer between Stormboard and your favorite apps automatic, so you can focus on your great ideas and not on the technical details.

Connect Stormboard to hundreds of other apps with Microsoft Flow!

There seems to be an app for everything, but monitoring all of them can be time-consuming. The solution? Getting your apps to talk to each other.

But, unless you are an API expert, it can be incredibly difficult to create an automated workflow that will sync data across platforms. Stormboard’s integration with Flow is here to help!

Automated connections called Flows, which you can set up in minutes, can automate your day-to-day tasks and build workflows between apps that otherwise wouldn’t be possible.

The best part? This all happens in the background — once it’s set you don’t need to do anything!

How to create a Flow with Stormboard

  1. Sign up for a free Flow account or log in to your existing account.
  2. On the Start Page, click on “Connectors” at the top of your screen and search for “Stormboard”.
  3. From this page, you can create your own templates using Stormboard and whatever app you choose to connect to.

Stormboard’s iOS and Android app updates now make it easier for you to capture your ideas wherever and whenever inspiration strikes!

On top of being able to change the shape of your sticky notes, customize your fonts, use full color or classic sticky notes, and all of our other new feature updates, you can also assign sticky notes to members of your team as tasks, check your Storm activity, take advantage of the improved whiteboarding, use the quick and efficient navigation, create Storms, join Storms, edit ideas, and more!

Stormboard’s iOS app works on your iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad, and the Android app works on your Phone and Tablet.

Stormboard has always worked on your phone’s browser, but no matter how big your phone was, the spatial interface of a massive virtual whiteboard could be challenging. Our new mobile version makes it easy to add and search for your stickies as they are all in a list view.

The magic comes when you click on the expand button at the top of your screen (the four arrows pointing outwards) and turn your device horizontal (see below). Now, you get the spatial benefits of the Storm, can easily move ideas wherever you want them, and edit your sticky notes. (TIP: Pinch the screen to zoom in and out and press the button on the top right corner of your screen to return to the vertical view.)

Note that you will no longer be able to access your Storms through your mobile browser, but will need to download the FREE app. Sign in to your account from your desktop to customize your settings, access our help documents, or take a tour (located under the Help button on your Dashboard or in a Storm) at any time.

Have you always wanted to be able to change the color of your sticky notes? Change the font that you use in your Storms? Or, change the shape of your ideas? Well, now you can do all of that, and more, with the new features that we released today!

More Color!

You can now make all of your sticky notes full color! (Don’t worry, you can still keep the classic look if you prefer.) In order to switch from the classic look to the new full-color option, click on the Setup menu at the bottom of your screen, select the “Styling” tab, and under “Style” select “Full Color” (see below).

Stormboard sticky notes styling

You can change the color of an individual sticky using the sticky note menu (click once on the sticky note and the menu will pop up), or you can change the entire sticky note palette using the Setup Menu at the bottom of your screen.

The background of individual sections of your template or your entire Storm can now be filled with color as well (see the image above), which can help you sort your ideas, better organize your meetings, and more!

Better Sticky Notes

We’ve made changes to our sticky notes so that they look and function better. Other than the new color options listed above, the new features include:

  • The ability to select different shapes for your sticky notes
  • A new look to the title stickies
  • You can now access the sticky note menu by clicking once on the sticky once
  • Edit sticky notes by double-clicking on the note (Read: How do I edit sticky notes?)

Cleaner Interface

We’ve cleaned up our sticky notes so that there is nothing to distract from what is most important — your ideas!

As you can see in the old version of our sticky notes above, there is a sentence at the top of the note telling you when it was created, and the menu at the bottom is very prominent. In the new version the idea takes center stage.

New scalable fonts make your ideas easier to read. This means that you no longer have to click a “more” button at the bottom of a sticky to read the entire idea. The font shrinks intuitively to ensure that your entire idea can fit on the note (you can set the minimum font size under the Setup Menu). You can also customize whether you want your ideas to be automatically aligned to the center of the sticky note or the top.

Another exciting new feature allows you to change the font used in your Storm. The available fonts are now Ante, Arvo Serif, Exo2, Open Sans, Raleway, and Tikal Sans. You can customize your font in the Setup Menu under the “Styling” tab.

New Settings in the Setup Menu

The Storm Setup Menu has been restructured into three tabs for even more customization: General, Features, and Styling.

Under the General tab, you can rename your Storm and create a description or goal for your Storm. The Features tab allows you to turn features on and off like Realtime Cursor Positions, Idea Editing, and enabling or disabling Storm Chat. Under the Styling tab, you can set your sticky note color palette, minimum font size, text alignment, and more!

Even More Exciting Features

  • Perfectly align your sticky notes We now have alignment guides! As you move sticky notes around your Storm, blue lines will appear on the screen to help you align your sticky notes in each section. Give it a try!
  • Preview URLs If you add a URL to your Storm, you can now preview the URL by hovering over the sticky note it has been added to (see image above).

Unless you are an API expert, it can incredibly difficult to create an automated workflow that will sync data across platforms.

Stormboard’s new integration with Zapier is here to help! You can now seamlessly connect Stormboard with more than 1,000 apps, making data transfer automatic so you can focus on your great ideas and not on the technical details.

Here’s how the integration works

Automated connections called Zaps, which you can set up in minutes with no coding, can automate your day-to-day tasks and build workflows between apps that otherwise wouldn’t be possible.

Each Zap has one app as the “Trigger”, where your information comes from and which causes one or more “Actions” in other apps, where your data gets sent automatically.

The best part? This all happens in the background — once it’s set you don’t need to do anything!

How to connect Stormboard to Zapier

  1. Sign up for a FREE Zapier account or log in to your existing account.
  2. Navigate to “Connected Accounts” from the top menu bar.
  3. Now click on “Connect new account” and search for “Stormboard”
  4. Use your credentials to connect your Stormboard account to Zapier.
  5. Once that’s done you can start creating an automation! Use a pre-made Zap or create your own with the Zap Editor. Creating a Zap requires no coding knowledge and you’ll be walked step-by-step through the setup.

To make your meetings, brainstorms, and collaboration even more effective, Stormboard has partnered with and added image search to Stormboard! This means that you can pull free images to use in reports, as inspiration for projects, and to use in meetings and presentations from within your Storm — no need to do a search in a separate window. All images are Creative Commons (CCO) and free for you to use for both personal and commercial use.

There are two ways that you can use images from Pexels in your Storm.

Add images to an Image Sticky Note

In addition to adding images via drag and drop, Box, and One Drive, you can also now search and instantly add one of the thousands of free images from

  1. Click anywhere in your Storm to open a new sticky note.
  2. Click on “Image” in the sticky note menu.
  3. Using the search bar enter the type of image you are searching for.
  4. Click “Add Image”.
  5. The image will be added to your sticky note and you can then move it to wherever you want in your Storm.

Add images to a Whiteboard Sticky Note

Whiteboard sticky notes now allow for multiple images to be added! You can add images from your computer, or you can browse through the collection of free images.

Once you have added your image or images, you can add shapes, text, or draw on top of the image using the whiteboard tools. Tapping the images will also let you easily move them around or resize them.
