Features built to best support your facilitation methods

Capture drawings, pictures, links and documents 

Snap a picture of that incredible prototype or creative butchers paper output and encourage greater sharing, collaboration and creativity. Don’t let great ideas go to waste!

 

Group ideas to synthesize thinking for discussion

Find common themes and groupings for ideas. Discuss, synthesize and pull all similar ideas into a group. Decide between facilitator only or audience based grouping.

Prioritize ideas effectively and efficiently

From simple dot voting or a thumbs up/thumbs down vote to multi-variable weighted scoring, you see results instantly in order to build group consensus and know where to focus your time and energy.

Poll or survey your audience

There is no need to switch tools or applications. Capture a quick thought, run a check in / check out, poll the audience or evaluate your session.  Get even more engagement and insights easily.

Save buckets of time with dynamic, exportable reporting

Download an image or PDF for an activity in just a click or customise the data you want for your reports and export it to Excel or CSV. Drill down to individual ideas or participant for a full detailed report or look across a range of ideas to see how they were evaluated and ranked.

Control the tech and focus the conversation

We believe that conversations and connections are key. GroupMap lets you lock the map, hide views or prevent further changes allowing you to “turn off the tech” and turn on the talk. When you are ready, bring everyone back to capture highlights. You can even use directed brainstorming to create a central capture point.

A safe space for everyone to share ideas

Trusted by banks, governments and universities through to professional facilitators, GroupMap uses 256-bit TLS security and meets GDPR And privacy laws to keep you, your data and your participants safe.

Manage bias and group think

Make ideas annonymous to encourage more honest or creative responses. Use individual brainstorming mode to manage social loafing and anchoring. All our voting and rating stages are done independently before results are revealed so that they are free from influence.

Create action items linked to ideas

One of the biggest complaints from workshop attendees is feeling like there were no take away actions. GroupMap has an optional action step that allows you to capture key action points against ideas that can be assigned a target date and owner.  Export and share the report or take action items into a new map for further discussion.
