It is a popular saying that “You hear you forget, you see and you remember and you do and you understand.” This is the reason most of the organizations, these days use visual representations to communicate information with their employees. Project information is not shared in the form of text documents anymore. Instead, a graphical representation in the form of an organization map, Kanban charts, infographics, etc. is used to share information with peers. Thus, online whiteboards are becoming quite popular among organizations to share graphical information in real-time and collaborate with the project team. Deskle is one of the small business collaboration tools which works as online whiteboards and helps in collaborating with the organization. The detailed specification of Deskle is described below.
