Excalidraw, the free online whiteboard tool that can help you plan your dashboard and my personal preference. The goal of this blog is to showcase Exalidraw and explore its features as well as how it can be used to create dashboard designs.

Some of the reasons why I use Exalidraw is because, its free, easily accessible online, simple to use, provides a range of feature colours and allows you to export your design to an image file.

Excalidraw is simple to pick-up and the interface is user-friendly. Instead of going through the interface, I thought I would share some examples of what I’ve been able to accomplish.

Example 2

While brief, I would encourage you to visit the Excalidraw website and to play around with the functionality.
