Shape type sections allow you to visually organize your information in different ways. You can use our these shapes by accessing our template gallery.

Each of Stormboard’s built-in section shapes work with our custom smart reporting, which means that when you run a report, it will know exactly where in the shape your notes are located.

There are six types of shapes:

  1. Circles (used in various ways, e.g. a pie chart)
  2. Concentric Circles (Visualize a group of data within a group of data.)
  3. Fishbone (Identify the causes of a problem)
  4. Funnel - (Move ideas through a process)
  5. Venn diagram - (Categorize your ideas and find their similarities and differences)
  6. Bullseye Diagram - (Determine how close to your objectives your notes are)

For Business and Enterprise subscribers you can add any of these diagrams to any section by changing a section type in your Storm. If you are on a trial or Personal Plan and would like to upgrade to a paid account, visit our pricing page.
