Everything you need to know.
You can change your BRAINSTORM Online username, password, email, language, notifications, etc. in the Account/Profile section of the platform, which can be found through the Facilitator menu. To access the facilitator menu, click on the user icon in the upper right corner of the dashboard and select “Account/Profile”.
BRAINSTORM Online offers registered users a one month free trial of their platform. Details can be found on the Plans page of this website. No credit card is required to sign up to a free trial.
You can invite people to join in your brainstorming sessions by sending an invite which you’ll be prompted to do once you’ve finished creating a session. However, others can only be added as participants, not facilitators.
To manage your BRAINSTORM Online subscription, including your plan tier and billing cycle, visit your profile and click Account. To access this option, click on your user icon, which will open the facilitator menu.
On the Account page, you can see which plan you are currently on (e.g. Spark/Strike/Ignite) and the features included in your subscription.
You will also find options to upgrade or unsubscribe from your plan on the Account page. (Spark free trials automatically expire after one month, unsubscribing users without any further action required.)
Please note unsubscribing from your plan is not the same as closing your account. Both actions will stop your billing, preventing new charges, but the second option deletes you from the platform.
Unsubscribing from your plan allows you to retain your saved brainstorms and preserves your profile, ensuring your brainstorms are waiting for you should you resubscribe in the future.
Closing your account removes your login access, brainstorms and personal details from the BRAINSTORM Online platform. As a result, if you resubscribe to BRAINSTORM Online in the future you will not be able to regain access to your past brainstorms and will have to create a new profile.
If you wish to stop being billed for your plan but would like to retain your past brainstorms, simply use the unsubscribe option available on your Account page. See “How can I manage my subscription?” on this page for more details on unsubscribing.

Mind mapping is a brainstorming technique for collecting and organizing information into a diagram. Mind maps are often depicted as spiderweb-like structures, with a starting point in the center that branches out over and over again, with each branch indicating an interrelationship between concepts. You will soon be able to add this technique to your brainstorming session in the BRAINSTORM Online platform by selecting it from the module options.
Of course! Every unique mix of methodologies and modules can be customized, so you can create a session just right for what you’re looking to achieve.
Not yet. But this feature is in the works! One day you will be able, even offline, to participate in pre-scheduled brainstorming sessions via our platform.
