New Release, Templates Updated on: 10 October 2019

Building Blocks – organizing your content has never been easier!

You have just made it through a powerful brainstorming session but the next obstacle is lingering right around the corner – arranging your content. Except as of right now, it is not a challenge anymore! With Conceptboard’s new update you can finally organize your ideas in an appealing way and shine a spotlight on the all important content, which will even knock your colleagues off their chairs. We have just rolled out a whole new template category to give your content that awesome look: the Building Blocks!

What are Building Blocks?

Building Blocks are pre-designed layouts that will draw attention to information within your board and help you communicate even the most complex ideas. Each Building Block can be used in different ways to showcase your content. Deciding on which one fits your message the best can help you quickly structure ideas and portray specific kinds of information. 

By using the Building Blocks, you will quickly see a clean and simple, yet informative picture coming together. While simple bullet points and scattered sources of information can negatively affect collaboration, Building blocks will make interpreting difficult ideas much easier to comprehend during discussions amongst teams or management. 

How do I use them?

Accessing the Building Blocks is fairly simple! When opening a new board the template dialog will pop up immediately. On existing boards, you will need to click the “+” symbol on the left side of your navigation bar first, and choose “Insert template”. After clicking on “All templates” a drop down menu appears and you can choose the Building Blocks category.

The best part of using Building Blocks is that they are flexible in their use: you can either use each one individually or, if you are feeling extra creative, insert multiple Building Blocks into your board, arrange them however you want and combine them into one big picture. This may be the most useful when working with complex topics that contain a lot of side notes and have multiple people involved. That way you can keep a clean overview of all important steps, tasks and actions.

Before getting started with Building Blocks it is important to decide on which ones will be best suited for your use case. Take a look at some examples we have provided for you below to get some inspiration.
