Balsamiq Wireframes is optimized for collaborative work. This document outlines the different ways to interact with your team, while editing a project.
Collaborating in Real-Time
Balsamiq Wireframes supports real-time collaboration between users. Once two or more users join the same project, every change will be reflected in real-time with everyone. The toolbar will show users who have joined the project.
The navigator panel indicates which wireframes your co-workers are working on by displaying their profile picture there.
Opening the same wireframe will allow you to see your co-worker's edits in real-time.
Chatting with Other Editors
The Editor Chat feature is a great way to discuss and gather quick feedback while working on a project. The option will appear as soon as two or more users join the same project.
A new chat message will generate a notification in the toolbar.
Once clicked, the chat window will appear on the bottom-right corner of your browser window. The window can be minimized or closed using the dedicated icons on the top-right.
Commenting and More
Besides real-time collaboration and chat, Balsamiq Wireframes offers many other ways to get feedback on your designs. To learn more about it, see Sharing and Reviewing.
Among those, the Comments Panel is a great alternative to chat.
Comments can be marked as resolved after they are reviewed and addressed. You can add Callout markers to indicate specific places in the wireframe where the comments applies or add a link to an alternate version.
You can learn more about comments in Reviewing and Commenting.
