What is brainstorming and why should I use Milanote for it?

A brainstorm is a group creative exercise to solve problems by gathering ideas spontaneously. But brainstorming isn't just about getting as many people as possible into a room together to generate ideas. Sometimes, the best brainstorming sessions are accompanied by a simple tool that allows you to record and visualize your progress, and makes brainstorming possible for remote teams.
