Milanote overview

What is Milanote?

Milanote is a cloud-based collaboration software designed to help creative teams manage storyboarding, creative writing and briefs, mind-mapping, note-taking, and brainstorming. It lets users create private boards and share projects with team members to collect feedback and ensure service quality.

Key features of Milanote include task management, real-time editing, content management, file sharing, project management, brainstorming, status tracking, and ideation. Each project comprises crucial information, such as plans, project assets, background data, conversations, and briefs, which can be shared across teams to collaborate via comments.

Milanote lets design teams organize various types of content in the visual boards, including PDFs, color swatches, design files, animated GIFs, videos, and more. It also offers templates that can be customized according to individual workflows.

Milanote’s drag-and-drop interface enables creative professionals to arrange files across moodboards, add notes to projects, and display every part of a creative project using a side-by-side view. Milanote Web Clipper can be installed on Google Chrome, which allows teams to instantly save links, images, and videos to existing boards from the web.

Milanote is awesome and an essential design organizational tool

Pros
I started using Milanote when it was in beta, when I was looking for a neater alternative to Trello. I do design work, so being able to put pictures and text wherever I want is really important. It's equally, important, though, that everything be neat and easy to organize. I mostly work by myself with a handful of individual clients. I can work on Milanote without having to deal with excess team features, but still share the boards with clients via a "secret link". (They can also join the board fully if they're members.) Milanote has also been steadily adding features that have really helped me to use it even more and with greater ease, particularly the Mac desktop app. Pulling in links is especially useful, as it shows you some of the webpage as well as the URL itself. I also love that I can embed GIFs and have them work as they're supposed to. (Airtable, for example, will just show it as a still image in a larger view.) Being able to show clients exactly what I'm talking about is huge, and the fact that it's easy to organize and make changes to really helps. It's standardized in its design but gives me everything I need.

Cons
There's no integration with Zapier yet. I believe that's on the roadmap, but it'll definitely make a difference when I can connect a particular design board with tasks on Todoist, for example.

I can't live without Milanote, I use it for EVERYTHING

Everything I used to do with a corkboard I can now do on Milanote. I have so much of my planning, writing, and proposals in this software now, it is my go-to anytime I need to quickly get something out of my head and onto "paper". It's the one software I can't imagine running my business without.

Pros
I use Milanote daily, for everything from mapping out a new story to creating wireframes for clients, to merely clipping quotes from the web for later use. It is such a versatile tool. I think of it like Evernote, but without all of the constraints. If you are a visual person who likes to storyboard out your ideas without having to fit it in a box, this is perfect. The templates are really great too.

Cons
The mobile app has been a long time coming and I'm getting happier with it by the day. I do wish I could share the live board with clients or friends without them needing to signup, like a view-only option, but that's not a dealbreaker since the export to PDF option fills in the gap.

Ultimate Planning Software

I am currently using Milanot to plan every of my project and it's so very helpful.

Pros
Planning has never been easier, I am able to add links, images etc. It's just like seeing what your final output would be like even before it is launched. I remember planning my website on Milanote first, and I still plan all my projects and campaign here, draft out my designs and scripts for the video here also. The guide at the beginning also helps to familiarize yourself with the app and how it works. Great Tool!!!

Cons
First of all, most time, I want to also work offline, but can't and I really wished there was a possibility. They should also consider cutting down the price a little, the other option is referring to get more space.

A great product with a steep pricing model and no mobile apps for Android

I found this app extremely easy to use, and it is highly recommended for creatives as it embraces fully the "limitless board" model. Sadly, there is no mobile apps for Android yet. Pricing is too steep with no middle option.

Pros
Ease of use, tons of features that make it flexible specially for creative environments

Cons
No mobile apps. Pricing is too steep if you live in the Android ecosystem as there is no app for this system.

Milanote is a terrific creative canvas for ideation, research, collaboration and everyday notetaking

Milanote is a creative workflow asset. It allows me to rapidly iterate on just about anything that's how versatile I've found it to be.

Pros
Milanote has an elegantly simple interface. It's great for capturing notes on the go, consolidating and mapping your research findings, organising your creative ideas, arranging all of the above into projects and using whatever system/workflow suits you (and your team, in realtime).

Cons
As a product, Milanote sits somewhere between a fully-fledged word processor and an online file storage service, like Dropbox. It's not either of those extremes, so manage your expectations! However, it is absolutely terrific at filling the void in between.
