5. Diagramming collaboration
We know that it can sometimes be challenging to integrate specific tools into your day-to-day processes, even if they are useful. We all want to feel that feeling of connection with the tool and get a sense of how it can help us improve productivity. For Diana, her aha moment with draw.io came about when she was part of a project that involved many interdisciplinary teams. Diana is a huge post-it note brainstormer, but trying to keep the teams up-to-date on her status or new ideas proved more than what post-its could handle. Enter draw.io.
Trying to filter information coming in from people with different backgrounds proved to be frustrating. The teams needed to find a solution where they could have information displayed as transparently as possible, with the ability to make changes collaboratively and easily. Through diagramming with draw.io, each of the different teams could keep each other updated on workflows, processes, and timelines. This project took place a few years ago, but it’s a moment that Diana looks back on fondly.
