Articulate what you know about user attitudes and behaviors as a group on FigJam’s collaborative online whiteboard.
While it’s ideal to build empathy maps at the beginning of your design process, FigJam co-exists seamlessly with Figma so you can iterate and improve these maps as new data becomes available. It’s as simple as creating shared component libraries in Figma that you can also access inside FigJam.
Start your design process with empathy mapping and 10x your new content, website designs, or app prototypes.
Different personas, different maps: Plot the end user with shapes, text, and images at the center of your board.
Observable vs. introspective activities: Use connectors and lines to flank the end user with quadrants that map what they see, say, do, and hear.
Import CSVs of your user research or create persona checklists with widgets. Proceed to then map your team’s stickies across quadrants.
Give voice to the stakeholders that own and manage specific customer touchpoints in their journey. Audio for live conversations, cursor chats, stamps and emotes, and observation mode make real-time collaboration easier than ever. With Open sessions anyone can join your FigJam space for 24 hours—no new account required.
