Voting Functionality

Just having a quick test of FigJam. Looks pretty useful. My initial thoughts are that It could potentially replace Miro for our Virtual Workshops.

We keep things simple with Post its and text generally so FigJam could easily cover this. However, it would be really useful to have a specific vote function.

I understand that you could use dot voting, or use emojis. But something more tailored to an actual vote could mean us not having to use Miro going forward!!

I second this. We use voting a lot, and in workshops with people from different levels of the organization, we’d like to keep it anonymous, to prevent senior leaders’ votes from affecting others’.

Mural is the gold standard for voting functionality. Votes sessions are anonymous and can be timed-boxed, you can give each user a certain number of votes, and the voting results can be counted automatically, sorted by number of votes received, and hidden/referenced later. Super useful for more complex workshops (e.g. a design sprint). I’d love to see FigJam copy any of these features.

It would be great to allow viewers to vote on the board in addition to dropping comments. For example, my PM doesn’t have edit access but would love to gather feedback about the direction or priority of elements in the file without allowign them to make changes.

+1 we also want to keep it anonymous and hide the votes while people are voting so that they don’t get affected by other people’s votes.

Our team is really looking for a feature where the team doesn’t see the voting results until the reveal. Currently the thumb-ups/likes/hearts really sway people in voting.

Anonymous voting for sure!!!

Yes, we need this as well before we would be able to switch to Figma completely.
