40 Note and Whiteboard Templates for Product Managers

by Claire George

Product managers spend a lot of time writing notes and crafting whiteboards. This is why templates are so useful. They jumpstart the creative process. We have all been there — staring at a blank page, feeling lost about where to begin. To help spark creativity and make the process easier, we now have a guided template library.

We are excited to unveil a brand new library of note and whiteboard templates. Each template is handcrafted by Aha! product experts and includes best practices and inspirational examples.

The new library is available to all Aha! customers and includes more than 40 templates for brainstorming ideas, scoping business models, laying out early product roadmaps, preparing for customer interviews and team meetings, and so much more. You will find both note and whiteboard templates — so you can capture information in the format you prefer.

Get started by navigating to a new workspace or personal document, then select Use a template to open the library. Browse templates by category based on key steps in the product development process — such as Research, Ideate, or Design. Alternatively, you can search by name to find a specific template. Read more about each template to see if it is a good fit or simply click to start using it right away. You can customize any template to meet your specific needs, then share it with others to build out key concepts together.

Let's take a closer look at how to use the new template library:

Find the perfect template

Imagine you want to get your team together to brainstorm a new user experience. You open up the template library and browse the Ideate category — then select the Mind map template. To understand how it can best be used, read through the best practices and example data included in the template and adjust it to match your needs.

Showcase your thinking

With your customized mind map, gather your team so everyone can share ideas in real time. Providing context and capturing opinions in a single spot helps everybody feel more engaged in the process — so you can come up with better solutions together. Once you are ready to move from ideation to implementation, convert your map directly into real product work in Aha! Roadmaps.

Share a personal whiteboard with specific team members or move it to a workspace to make it accessible to the entire team.
