"It is the best software when creating diagrams and templates that are very interesting"

What do you like best?

I like it because I did not have to read tons of descriptions to discover what each tool does, it also allows us to make extraordinary diagrams and graphics. Lucidchart mea caused an impact due to the ease of constructing diagrams since it is very easy to develop the most important things quickly and without neglecting other pending tasks to be performed. You have to try this software and you will see all the good and practical that is in it to create excellent diagrams

What do you dislike?

At the moment of using this software it can be a little complicated since it costs to administer the diagrams if you have many elements. But in what you start to nurture Lucidchart you realize that it has multiple predefined forms, for the realization of a web-based diagramming, which allows users to collaborate and work together in real time, creating flow diagrams, mental maps, and many prototypes for our business

Recommendations to others considering the product:

We recommend it since we have the possibility to create folders and organize the different graphs and diagrams, it is also a very easy and useful tool to carry everything organized at work, there is also a layer option is not always obvious, but it has served us well block a set of forms and do not move by accident.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The only problem that I have solved has been to save time, when you use the software more often, you will notice that there are many benefits that will allow you to grow your business in an amazing way. Even the fact that you can import your own elements directly, that makes it a great tool since you can choose specific templates that are sorted by categories

"Lucidchart makes diagramming much easier all the way around"

What do you like best?

Not only are the drawing tools easy to use, but the charts and diagrams that we can generate look very nice and clean. I like that the drawing tools were specifically designed for diagrams and charts. Modifying various chart elements is extremely intuitive. We aren't presented with an overwhelming amount of tools that could make things more confusing. I can lay out nodes and windows with a visual interface and basically snap them together in a smooth fashion.

What do you dislike?

I think Lucidchart has largely served its purpose, but I can definitely see how its capabilities could be extended to other types of charts with more robust features. It's wouldn't hurt if there were more 3D shapes or other dynamic elements that could make the charts pop more for official presentations or reports.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would say that most professionals can use Lucidchart for basic diagrams with ease, but to get things going faster, you may want to try loading a chart template to see common flow elements already charted out for you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm able to plan things more quickly and on the fly with my team when using Lucidchart. When I draw out diagrams with my hand or use regular graphics programs, things get messy and can take longer to apply. With Lucidchart, I or anyone I'm working with at the moment and easily draw out clean and clear diagram elements in seconds. It really helps to keep the flow of our collaboration going smoothly. We generally are able to spend less time planning or more time on executing the plans.

"Lucidchart is the best tool for creating diagrams"

What do you like best?

The designers of our company are pleased with this software because it offers a lot of options for creating and designing all kinds of diagrams, it has many options that favor even more like graphics, lines and different colors, it is also very effective in computers. mobile, which facilitates work for our company

What do you dislike?

At first our designers used the free version of the software but it is not as effective as it seems, it does not give you all the design options, but if you use the standard plan it would be perfect for any company, besides the most unfavorable point is that it does not allows you to use the tool if you have no connection

Recommendations to others considering the product

Our designers are satisfactorily pleased with this software as it meets our expectations and is of great help to our company, we recommend it to new users of Lucidchart

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Thanks to this software we have created new diagrams for our company, we have streamlined our organization, we have launched new ideas through the maps, without any doubt, it helps our company because Lucidchart saves us time and gives us a better vision of us

"Lucidchart is an intuitive browser-based diagram and chart creation tool"

What do you like best?

I've had some bad experiences with software that runs in a web browser, but Lucidchart has mainly ran smoothly for me with very few poor performance issues. The drawing tool within Lucidchart are generally easy to use. I didn't have to read through tons of descriptions to figure out what each tool does. The tool functions are basically obvious and the way we use them, through mouse drags and clicks, is quite smooth and intuitive. I like the way line endpoints snap to the edges of box elements. Also, I can use templates to start charts off without too much planning.

What do you dislike?

I think I can't really complain a whole lot since Lucidchart has often delivered with great diagrams, but I think there could be better alignment and snapping tools to give me better control over positioning. I think that's mainly a personal style preference kind of thing though.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If creating diagrams are a significant part of your business, you should be able to benefit tremendously from Lucidchart. Whether you're a beginner or expert at graphic design or other drawing tools, Lucidchart is so focused on diagrams that it can dramatically cut down your drawing time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Rather than using traditional graphic design applications, which can take time to draw out elements, Lucidchart makes it easy to quickly click and drag diagram elements into place. I can add text and connect nodes very quickly without having to focus on the fine details of connecting graphic elements. I can use one of the many Lucidchart templates to get the structure of my particular diagram in place and just swap out text and make a few minor layout changes.

"Effective design tool to show your ideas in diagrams"

What do you like best?

It is a very complete software for its variety of tools to create designs, flow diagrams, mental maps and organizational charts. Lucidchart has allowed me to use: Colors, lines, graphics, among others, for the creation of my designs in a professional way. It can be operated from mobile devices being compatible with different formats always showing to be practical and intuitive

What do you dislike?

The free version is of a very ephemeral term and in turn very limited, this could keep future users from making it look like dubious software. Sometimes it can be slow in complex projects

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is beneficial because it allows you to fulfill your projects at the required time and even before. Didactic like no other and very intuitive, even being an inexperienced person this software has collaboration in real time and a support that will clarify your doubts

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The first problem I have solved has been to save time, something that for me is very indispensable, since I have a small team and so I can execute other activities, it has also kept all my projects in order and control the ERD and UML that previously was difficult for me. With Lucidchart I have become a designer without the need to go to an academy

"Efficient, practical and didactic diagrams"

What do you like best?

Lucidchart is a software that has caused me an impact due to its variety and particularity when constructing diagrams, it is a very complete tool that has allowed me to use: colors, lines, graphics, among others. It has helped me to look like a professional designer, you can also create very fantastic and intuitive campaigns in real time

What do you dislike?

I would like the free version to be more extended in seven days, great at least 30 days to be able to better develop the capacity of the tool without having to pay before using it and could be better if the personification is easier

Recommendations to others considering the product

The creation of flow diagrams, maps, flow charts are highly recommended because with Lucidchart I do them very professionally, it is also very useful as a support material, the designs to clarify the doubts in the presentations are great and achieve great visual results. I have been able to log in with my account in social networks without any problems, it has helped me to learn more about graphic design making me more self-taught. When time passes it is easier to use Lucidchart

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is very profitable and intuitive, if you take it with all seriousness you will develop your diagrams to 100% without much difficulty since their functions are mostly didactic and you will have fun with the tool. The great advantage it has is that it integrates with Microsoft office very easily and I love that to be able to export my diagrams in real time and share it with my colleagues

" Total efficiency, the best diagrams are with Lucidchart"

What do you like best?

I consider that for an educational environment LucidChart is totally effective, it contains innumerable amounts of things that you can use as tools to make flow diagrams, organization charts, real-time collaboration, mental maps, ERD, UML, chat and group comments, among others. cocas You can also create conferences with very attractive materials making them didactic. All this being very intuitive to use

What do you dislike?

The only thing I do not like is that the free version has little functionality, I think it is very limited compared to the payment. This will cause other new users to test it, deviate and take it into account to look for other software because they will not want to risk paying without being sure that it is the software they need

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a software completely full of tools that allows you to save time. Collaboration in real time is extremely beneficial. There are many advantages it offers us so I prefer it among others in the paid version more than the free one

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

There are many benefits that we can get to this software, save time and keep everything in order are some of the most important and we had been looking for a long time. The truth is that thanks to how easy it is to handle Lucidchart, we develop everything more quickly and without neglecting other pending tasks

"easy flowchart diagrams in the cloud."

What do you like best?

I like this application that I can create all kinds of diagrams with different structures and designs where I can express my ideas clearly, which allows me to create plans and maps of great scope and with high acceptability, the creation of this type of diagrams is made of a simple way, if you already have knowledge in basic applications of the same purpose as Visio, what I like about this tool, is the graphics it has, since they are more adaptable, and in the final diagram, graphically they look better oriented, so I can create diagrams for all kinds of projects.

What do you dislike?

When creating complex diagrams that have a considerable amount of elements, the manipulation can become somewhat complex, since the software can become a bit slower, when the projects are of great proportions, possibly, the graphical engine falls short, when so many graphics and images are placed in the same plane, otherwise the software complies with what it promises, and the creation of a diagram and map, is quite good

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The planning of autumn types of projects can be created in diagrams, and maps, of different characteristics, where together with elements that are inserted in it, helps to have a better reasoning about the projects and tasks to be carried out, since they are scheming, detailed plans of the activities to be carried out.

"Great Diagramming Tool for Process Flows and Sitemaps with Features that Streamline the Process"

What do you like best?

I create a lot of process flows and sitemaps. I really like the ability to quickly create my diagrams on the page within the diagram without having to continually go back to a tools panel to select something. Lucidchart makes it eas to quickly type out a sitemap structure in text and build it automatically with connected symbols. Creating process flows allows you to drag from a shape to the next shape with a contextual shape picker in the diagram. No dragging and dropping from a sidebar and connecting lines between shapes, Lucidchart does that automatically and intuitively for you.

What do you dislike?

I create fairly involved sitemaps and love the sitemaps tools which let you type your hierarchy into the diagram in a popup and see that hierarchy anytime you click on a shape. However, the popup is small, and when I click on a shape in my wireframe, the popup doesn't jump to and highlight the item I've selected in the hierarchy. This makes it challenging to find the item I'm trying to work with in the popup hierarchy.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Like other SAS products, you have to be aware of the pricing models and what permissions you have to share your work with others so they can edit it too.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I create complex process flows with multiple decision trees for healthcare insurance products as well as web application sitemaps. Lucid chart provides great contextual tools that allow me to work quickly without continually jumping to other tool panels. Lucidchart also lets you automatically layout your diagram, so adding new items, like a new page deep in a sitemap will redistribute the icons to make space on the page in a clean format.

"Free, practical and offers a lot of diagrams and objects."

What do you like best?

Whether you are a student or you work in a big corporate team, this software offers dozens of diagram types, hundreds of objects to select from and it does it all for free. I love how it manipulates with objects and connections thus saving you time by not forcing you to manually adjust every item. The objects looks nice and you can create some really professional diagrams. Free version offers 60 objects per diagram which is fair enough. It has predefined themes if you are in a rush and you don’t have enough time to play with colors and effects. This is my favorite diagram tool.

What do you dislike?

Text manipulation of the diagram object is somewhat cumbersome and not precise.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it and you will see how easy it is to create diagrams.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Creating flow chart and activity diagrams for my team. This software is easy to use and has a vast number of objects.

"Excellent Diagrams to the order of the day"

What do you like best?

It is a great tool to create flowcharts, it allows you to share them to your team through the platform, it has several diagram options that fit your needs are the characteristics that I like most about this platform

What do you dislike?

It can be complex to manage the diagrams if you have many elements in it, you can accidentally move lines that you did not want to move, it should be more fluid movement to avoid obstructing the changes made in the diagrams

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can plan the planning of my work in a flowchart and share it with the rest of my work team, put forward project ideas through mental maps that help us to have a general vision of the activities we must undertake. For my team it has been very easy to visualize the lines of work through the diagrams and to do it using this platform is simply incredible

" An easy way to assemble and edit flow charts"

What do you like best?

It is one of the easiest softwares that I have used, it has multiple predesigned forms, simply drag to the center of the document the image you need, the connectors and edit the texts.

In addition to being able to draw up structural organization charts, different types of diagrams and mental maps can be made.

It can be easily linked to the email account and other office 365 software

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it takes time to load the documents, and depending on the complexity of the document that is being developed, it hangs up (you must have a good internet connection) if you do not have a connection, you can not use this software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

In addition to using it for any help to design a diagram, add the work team that collaborates in the daily tasks, associate it with the email account that is used frequently

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In the administrative supervision that I have at a national level, you must have a clear order of the functions, schedules and spaces where each staff is located, and depending on the rotation of the same, the organizational charts must be updated, with Lucidchart this task has been made easy . And I can share it digitally immediately with the team via web.

"Flexible, easy to use and has lots of options"

What do you like best?

It is very flexible and has a ton of different shapes to choose from. I can use this for everything from network diagrams, UML, ERD to sequence diagrams and even UX flows. Lots of different options. It also allows me to import from and export to Visio. Being on a Mac and working with a lot of Windows users, this helps a lot since they all use Visio and I don't like to keep booting my VM just to open up Visio.

I also like the ability to create folders and organize the various charts. I can even share an entire folder to allow easy collaboration on projects with specific people. No need to share each individual chart.

What do you dislike?

It is cool they have a free account but it is pretty limited on the number of objects per document that is allowed. You also have to pay to get revision history. Not a big deal though since it isn't very expensive and I am more than happy to support development of this product.

Recommendations to others considering the product

No need to think twice. Well worth the money and a great product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Part of my job is to create various types of software diagrams. Lucidchart allows me to do this quickly and easily. It also allows me to easily share with others and export to various formats.

"Excellent online tool to make diagrams"

What do you like best?

It is very intuitive and comfortable to work on it. I love the fact that it is based on the cloud and there is no need to install any software on my computer and I can also assign other collaborators or members of my team remotely.

What do you dislike?

You need a good internet connection because sometimes I have lost the work done by unexpected failures of Lucidchart.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I use this software a lot and I was really impressed by how easy it is to make complex diagrams. It is totally in the cloud and all jobs will always be available at any time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is a very useful tool to carry everything organized at work, especially if you are a developer since it is possible to create flow diagrams and class diagrams with great ease.

" It is very helpful to make flows and diagrams"

What do you like best?

It is a simple and practical tool that allows you to make any type of diagrams, flows, mental maps. Includes predesigned templates at your disposal according to the work to be done, to use them with the information you need, you just have to drag the amount of elements you need to the center of the screen and fill in the spaces with text, you can add the team work to edit the information together, as well as share and work with the tools of google and other integrations that has this program

What do you dislike?

The free version for project leaders, with a usage limitation of 25 mb for storage, should be extended a bit more. In general, it is a very good tool

Recommendations to others considering the product

Work with the integrations of other products offered by Lucidchart, and store externally the work done so as not to quickly occupy the capacity of the account

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helps activate and develop teamwork, it is an excellent option to clearly establish workflows in a specific project. Integrating a minimum team of 5 people

"Lucidchart is flexible, detailed, and has a great free version!"

What do you like best?

Variety of shapes and items you can add, flexibility in styling and connecting them. The standard shapes are default, but you can choose from a wide variety of well chosen shape presets based on the type of project you're working on. Even for complex charts with lots of items, little lag or network issues when moving items or making changes. The free version is great for even complex charts that 50+ shapes, but only allows a small number of charts. But if you do need to use it regularly, DEFINITELY worth the premium subscription!

What do you dislike?

It can sometimes be hard to select the right item when you have several items stacked together. Zooming in and out can be cumbersome - the zoom steps are wider apart than I'd like.Otherwise, I have had no issues with the Lucidchart software as I've used it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't miss the individual shape options - arrow directions for lines, shape and text colors and patterns, rounded corners, etc. These can help your diagrams look more professional, but also make them clearer for your audience at a glance. Also, the layers option isn't always obvious, but is really helpful in locking one set of shapes so you don't move them by accident!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Creating complex flow charts, organizational charts, workflow charts, value webs, and other diagrams. I've been able to more clearly illustrate complex website functions, large organizational systems, reporting chains with several "what if" cases, and more!

"Very good UX"

What do you like best?

You can organize all your documents very easily and share documents with your colleagues. This looks very similar to Google Drive actually but making diagrams is now a hundred times easier with this ! There are a lot of interesting libraries to create the diagrams. Lucidchart's selection is very easy. I like the fact that you can import your own elements directly, which makes it again very easy/fast to use.

You can choose specific templates which are all sorted by categories as well to start doing your diagram, which makes it easier to reuse.

What do you dislike?

To be honest, I spent some time before understanding how all of this works, maybe because of the UI itself, as this is not obvious where we have to click to find our files etc... Otherwise there are not so many things I dislike as this saves me lots of time. Instead of doing these on a paper this is cleaner and faster with LucidChart ! I stayed for some time with the free trial but it blocks me to use more elements: I can't use more than a specific number of it and can't use too much space in the file I opened either which is annoying, but fine.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This will save you a lot of time !

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Creating diagrams and having all the logic draw for everyone in my team to understand what is in my mind. I then send my diagrams and share the link to my colleagues, that's simple !

"Arguably the most insightful and useful diagrams/templates available online"

What do you like best?

The fact that you can actually learn more whilst using a template is fantastic. Especially when preparing for a presentation - i find that lucid charts makes life easy by being able to populate professional templates. Often i find that there was some aspects I've missed - which isn't a problem anymore as Lucid charts clearly and visually points out the gaps for me. Superb!

What do you dislike?

Everything should be free, but its understandable given the quality. Its probably big ask from and end user perspective. Not that i mind paying for the subscription (it IS worth every penny) but i honestly cannot find any flaws with using Lucid charts at this stage. I've used it for quiet some years without any difficulties.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Rather subscribe and get all the tools you need - it's affordable and i consider it FREE with regard to what you are getting out of using LC!!!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Speeds up the process of preparing presentations. It also really helps gain more insight and allows for changes to be made at will. Regardless of what industry you are in - you could literally use a template/diagram etc - to gain further insight on other industries business models or even analyse a business prospect or potential new client and their strategies.

"Powerful and versatile online tool to make quality diagrams"

What do you like best?

The diagrams have personalization possibilities to make them visually attractive, it is very easy to use since its editor is quite comfortable, it integrates very well with google docs favoring teamwork, also from the application itself you can share documents and assign permissions to team members to modify or see the diagrams, you can make many types of diagrams, but if you do not have a specific diagram you can import your own shapes and do it in the application, the diagrams can be exported in the most used formats such as pdf , jpg, png, vsx or cvs; You can also import diagrams made with other applications such as visio, omnigraffle, gliffy and draw.io

What do you dislike?

If you are using a free account you can only use a maximum of 60 objects per document and you can only have 3 documents stored, plus the revision history is only available as a premium feature.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need to make many diagrams and that these have more than 60 objects it is convenient to subscribe at least to the basic plan since the price is relatively low.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

it allows me to make diagrams of many types, mainly diagrams of entity relationship and diagrams uml without need of facilities or complicated records, since you can enter with your google account or with social networks like facebook or g +, also allows to share the work with my students and organize work teams for the diagrams of the software development methodologies that we use.

"Great for Wireframing"

What do you like best?

I like that I can generate my own diagrams and save them for future uses. Templates, such as the UI/UX ones, are great for putting together an idea quickly. Collaboration is smooth - I can easily share my document with a coworker and he or she can quickly add comments, make adjustments, or add items without needing me to touch it.

What do you dislike?

At times, my wireframe may be larger than the canvas provided. I would then adjust the canvas to be larger. However, when I expand the canvas, my wireframe moves along with frame which results it spanning over two different canvases. When I try to adjust to be only part of one, Lucidchart will jump to the bottom of the canvas.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're using Lucidchart to generate wireframes for different content needs for a website. This includes wireframing new pages on the site, PPC landing pages, email drip campaigns, new modules, and more. Every content strategist and marketing managers have access to the software using our business email which makes collaboration much quicker.

"Organize your internal and external processes your company with LucidChart"

What do you like best?

This is a fascinating help to create, reorganize or modify any part of the workflow in your company, be it the process of approval of tasks or assignments within the company, restructure the organization of the company, and finally creation or restructuring of a management, department among others

What do you dislike?

is a complete application, you can relate the flowchart or workflow, with other applications this is a good help, you can work directly on the page and endorse it in the cloud of the application, in my opinion I have nothing negative to add

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With this application we can facilitate the work, we have the need to create additional coordination in the production department, with which we will test what is being explored in lucidchart and submit a proposal of height and that is approved by the meeting

"Super tool for swimlane and flow diagrams"

What do you like best?

Easy to work with having lot of eye catching designs. The flow diagram can be easily shared with other team members.

What do you dislike?

Nothing particular to highlight, it just slow down sometimes if the diagram is loaded with more elements. Also I felt as the charts goes complex the response time increases.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a good and inexpensive product if compared to other paid available products. But if you are looking for free product then you may need to try it's trial at least.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is helping me to convert complex SIPOC (supplier, input, process, output, customer) into simple flow chats and swimlane, which makes the data more presentable and easy to understand. Also it helped me developing organization chart (of our vendors) for my team's reference to understand whom to reach out when required.

"Poderosa herramienta para realizar cualquier tipo de diagrama!"

What do you like best?

Me gusta que es una herramienta en linea la cual puedes acceder desde cualquier parte, incluso desde tu teléfono inteligente, puedes integrarlo con Google Drive de modo que se incorpora a las herramientas que mas usas.Tiene gran cantidad de plantillas que puedes utilizar como base para tu trabajo Driagramas de Flujo, Diagramas de red, Mapas Mentales, Diagramas de Circuitos Eléctricos, Diagramas UML y muchos otros, para hacer los diagramas cuentas con una gran variedad de figuras según estándares como UML, Entidad Relación, Redes Cisco, Azure, entre otros. Puedes manejar capas dentro del diseño lo que es muy útil si necesitas añadir elementos de diferentes niveles de análisis en el diagrama. Puedes colocarle fácilmente temas al diagrama sin mayor esfuerzo, pues ya trae unos pre-diseñados. También, puedes importar diagramas desde Visio y Gliffy; y finalmente, puedes descargar el diagrama de distintos formatos PDF, PNG, JPG, SVG y Visio.

What do you dislike?

Una de las cosas que me disgusta es que el entorno de trabajo no es personalizable y este es muy gris. Otra cosa es que cuando los diagramas se hacen demasiado complejos tiende a ponerse pesado, sobre todo si insertas imágenes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

LucidChart es un software muy sencillo y fácil de usar que permite trabajar los diagramas de forma colaborativa y compartirlos fácilmente; además, puedes tenerlos disponible desde cualquier parte con tu teléfono inteligente, solo tienes que bajarte la aplicación. Es bastante provechoso ya que puedes utilizarlo para muchos tipo de diagramas.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Los diagramas de procesos de la organización se realizan en esta herramienta ya que es muy sencilla y fácil de usar; además, compartes el documento y todo el equipo ya dispone del diagrama para incorporarlo a otros documentos (informes, reporte, presentaciones, entre otros). También, si necesitas un diagrama de distribución de espacios sin mucho rigor es perfecto ya que lo puedes hacer sin mucha complejidad.

"Great product for organizing, planning and sharing project plans/ideas."

What do you like best?

I've been using Lucidchart for a few years now. The feature I love the most is the ability to create easy to read flow charts and attach a hyperlink to a shape.

What do you dislike?

There isn't really anything I dislike about lucidchart. Its a great product. Period.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Very easy to use! Excellent for organizing your thoughts on paper to create a seamless, easy to read flowchart. After I started using this product in Marketing, other teams like Sales, Customer Service and Prodcut teams really liked how easy it was to read my charts, that they decided to get a license of lucidchart themselves. Its a great product for any team/department.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a marketer, I get a lot of internal questions from different departments asking what are email nurtures look like and what content we share with customers. With Lucidchart I can easily create a flow chart to show the emails and send dates and on top of that, I can hyperlink a shape in the chart and take someone to a sample of the actual customer email.

"The best platform to design"

What do you like best?

Without a doubt, it is the best platform to design for its great variety to create, with a clear and intuitive interface, it is also compatible with IOS and Android, with Lucidchart you can perform: flow charts, mental maps, diagrams among other things. Without a doubt, it is excellent, I even recommended my students

What do you dislike?

It is capable of materializing any project however it may be that in the most complex store to slow down and get you out of the software. It also has a very free feature limited

Recommendations to others considering the product

Thanks to Lucidchart and his excellent benefits I have learned more to make designs of any type counting on the collaboration in real time that they offer you, once the tests do not stop using them. If you need to make diagrams and different designs this is on the site indicated

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The designs I manage to finish very short, I have a panel of very contextual tools It also allows me to easily induce and train others to grow with this excellent software, I have been able to save time and have order of everything. Also, everything mentioned before is very profitable, an option that you can not miss

"Build your workflow and organize yourself "

What do you like best?

It is a platform that gives you the opportunity to capture graphically through process flows and diagrams any thread of activities, tasks, ideas, mind maps or systems. It has a number of elements and connectors that allow you to express concepts in detail. Additionally, it has collaboration tools in case the flows or diagrams created should include other work areas involved in the process.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that it's just an online tool, I should have an offline area for information management.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a digital archive analyst, my job consists of safeguarding, classifying and ordering the different audiovisual materials of our films that are available to the distributor. It was necessary for me to create a flow of processes based on a method that involved the proper safeguarding and handling of this material, areas involved, responsible people, permission for use. After having this flow of processes ready, we have avoided loss of film material, we were able to make an inventory and order the files so as to have our films at the time it was needed.

"Awesome online graphing tool. "

What do you like best?

First of all is very easy to get started drawing awesome looking graphs. No matter its complexity you have at hand all the tools needed, from drawing simple flowcharts to complex UML graphs, database relations, etc. The ability to import your graphs from other software is also a big plus. There is also a huge library of symbols and charts available. Also, hotspots and layers, gives a lot of control on what is displayed, so you can somehow animate your chart to turn on/off parts of the graph.

What do you dislike?

It takes a while to get a grip on drawing connectors with custom paths, especially when adding more than one right angle turn, I had to play a bit with the different options under the page settings menu to finally have control of their positioning. I also, recommend having snap to grid enabled.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Fully recommend having a list of keyboard shortcuts, although I didn' t find one, you can build one yourself.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The fact that is web based, really help us share and facilitate contributing, from remote users. You can just go to any customer and open your graph in the browser, getting rid of carrying around pen drives with the information. Moreover, it is possible in most cases, to import graphs from customers data. You can have a layer where the customer can make their recommendations to the project without the need for additional meetings. At the end, this saves a lot of time.

"Easy and the best in this category "

What do you like best?

First and only diagram and flow chart system I have ever and will ever use! Lucidchart has a huge selection of pre-made templates for different projects from flowcharts to floorplans and everything in between. It's drag and drop interface allow for easy custom charts or modification of the premade templates. With the reasonable price plans available (including a FREE Plan) there is an option for you to get your own online storage which is great to keep all your charts and diagrams available online to access in a pinch, but if you need a chart or diagram download there are many different download options available including one of my personal favorites the .png format. It's worth mentioning that if you're a student there is a free upgraded account you can get.

What do you dislike?

If you don't upgrade to a paid account you will not get much space to save documents but this isn't an issue if you just download them all, but again you won't have access to them at that point. Additionally, the site is slow loading the first time you log in but it's not too bad.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Must have for any designer looking to wireframe and site map digital designs and websites.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Originally as a student using it, it was simple and fast and easy to design site maps and flow charts for websites. Its easy to color code and edit so everyone stays on the same page for the idea of the design. It keeps things simple, clean, and easy.

"Lucidchart is great!!"

What do you like best?

i like so much the order in this app, i can choose so many different diagrams, lucidchart adapts to your type of work, i can collaborate with my co-workers, it have a quick and easy tutorial for make your own diagrams, i can choose so many different templates, is very good.

this app allows precision in my diagrams, i can see them in presentation mode or share it with my partners.

What do you dislike?

there's no one negative thing about the functionality of lucidchart, if i must say one bad thing is that almost all templates are only for premium users.

Recommendations to others considering the product

i full recommend lucidchart, with this app you can make very precise diagrams and you can share with your coworkers, lucidchart have so many tools and templates, i will not get tired of it and i am sure that you either

"Lucid Chart is a functional solution that creates highly-usable flow charts"

What do you like best?

It's pretty quick to learn how to use LucidChart. The features grow with you so that you can use just the basics after a few minutes of clicking around. But if you want to become a power user, you'll need to put in a bit more time.

What do you dislike?

The end result feels like a mechanical drawing or an engineering chart. They're just not aesthetically pleasing. If you're just trying to communicate information, then it's all you need. If you need to communicate information in an elegant way, then you may need a different solution.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Check it out. It may well check all your boxes. Just don't think that it will be useful for client-facing information. It's more for creating internal docs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Explaining multi-stage processes to clients in an onboarding course. We've been able to help our clients understand the need to complete certain tasks in a specific order and identify decision points and criteria for making those decisions.

"Lucidchart - a premier diagramming tool"

What do you like best?

I've tried way too many diagramming tools over the years - wayyyy too many. I've used Pencil (more for web mockups), Moqups (also web-centric), PowerPoint (more of a hack and too simple), and of course Visio (just too much of a pain and overkill most of the time) to name a few. I heard about Lucidchart and decided to give it a try - it is by far the easiest and most versatile diagramming program I have tried. I like it so much I actually puchased a basic plan ($55/yr). That I LOVE about Lucidchart is that I can quickly and easily which up a network diagram for a client in a matter of minutes based on a saved template. I can then export to PNG and slap it in OneNote or a Jira ticket.

One thing I really like is how well the linking of objects with arrowed lines works - it's just simple to do and the lines can be easily manipulated, something that has never been easy to do in Visio.

I like the idea of the integrations available (Jira, Google Docs, etc.), but haven't used them yet honestly.

What do you dislike?

There's not much to dislike about Lucidchart. One thing I would like to see would be the ability to have complex shapes - freehand polygons or the ability to add/remove vertices so you can make odd shapes and not just rectangles.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think you can have one diagram for free. Try it out and see what you think.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I primarily use Lucidchart to create small network diagrams, but have also used it to create figures for publications and also used the mindmapping feature, which is a nice way to get thoughts lined out quickly. Some colleagues also use the Jira integration as well which allows them to insert their Lucidchart content directly into Jira tickets.

"A Not Complete, Yet Easy to Use and Powerful Tool "

What do you like best?

The largest competitor of Lucid Chart requires the user to download software to get started, whereas, Lucid chart has the option to be almost entirely browser based. As a user, I find this incredibly powerful and a positive user experience. Lucid Chart's ease of access and use is perhaps its strongest trait. It is something any individual needing to build out diagrams should have in their toolkit.

What do you dislike?

Compared to Visio, perhaps Lucid Chart's main competition, the look and feel of the product is lacking a bit. I find myself using Visio a little more often due to the clean look and feel of that application. With Lucid chart, the export options are also a little weak compared to alternatives.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for a light weight product that provides the tools necessary, I highly recommend Lucid Chart. It provides the user with a quick and easy way to create various business diagrams, from mock ups to ERDs, Lucid Chart is incredibly powerful. If you are an enterprise who relies heavily on Microsoft Products, then I'd consider looking at Visio as well as an alternative. Both products have their pros and cons.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The uses of Lucid Chart span throughout most business problems, for a diagram can be created in most situations to provide visual context to a problem, idea or solution. Perhaps the most often uses I find myself going to Lucid Chart for are Entity Relationship Diagrams and Use Case Diagrams. Creating charts like these is a breeze in Lucid Chart, and businesses are provided with powerful visualizations of their needs.

" Diagram to organize your projects"

What do you like best?

The way to plan with this application is totally different, ingenious, the organization of the projects is much more visual, you clearly determine the responsibilities of each one and at what moment they must intervene during the execution of the project, an online alternative that contains a large amount of elements and ways to make your diagrams, you can also do collaborative work and it integrates well with other common applications such as Word and Excel.

What do you dislike?

They could add the function of working offline, so as not to depend so much on internet connectivity

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Given that during last year we had many training projects and online presence in different cities of the country, we had to organize all our activities in a great workflow that helped us to visualize all important aspects step by step and those responsible for each of those responsible, that facilitated the dynamics of organization and implementation of training courses and saved us time, unnecessary travel of staff and money.

"This is a great alternative to make some fresh diagrams"

What do you like best?

When I started using this software, I was quite amazed at its simplicity: the first thing I could enjoy of this tool is the variety of types of diagrams which anyone can easily just select and start using in a matter of seconds. I also felt a bit excited because many aspects of the chart can be easily changed (such as colors, figures, lines and many more things). In the past I had used a few diagramming tools that didn't allow for much variation of colors for my diagrams (which made them look a bit dull), but this one has been a great tool for making my diagrams.

What do you dislike?

Maybe I'm too touchy, but I dislike the left option bar. And what do I want to say by this? I mean that this bar lacks a couple feautres: first of all, this bar should include a section that shows templates for users just in case they want to change the current template for a new one. Finally, if users chose a different template for their diagram, it would be cool if the written information that users typed up in these diagrams remained there for re-use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This online software is nice option for someone interested in making diagrams and even flow charts.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When I use a diagram software like this, I can be sure that my activities are recorded and stored safely. One example is if I need to change or update any logistic aspect of my business, I'd just have to open my stored diagram and make the required changes.

"Lucid Chart is a great tool for keeping track of clients and their needs"

What do you like best?

Even though Lucid Chart is a tool often used to create flow charts, I really love that I can give it different uses. For example, I use this online software for keeping track of my clients and their needs: I like that I only have to log into my account, and then select a ready-made flow chart type, with added shapes and arrows to signal the flow of the task; after that, I like even more that I can replace the inserted text with the name of my clients, as well as the tasks I have to deliver to make them happy (so that they buy my stuff again), and for me, it's a super bonus that I can easily change the color of the text and shapes easily. This software has simplified the way I keep track of my clients and their orders, and that's the part I love the most.

What do you dislike?

This is a very complete software, which is also easy to use. Because of this, I can really say that the only thing that bothers me about this is its price. What I mean to say is that almost 9 American dollars per month can be a bit high for most users, especially for people like me, who run their own business on their own. If the price for this service was around 3 dollars, then I would definitely give it a 10-star rating,

Recommendations to others considering the product

Lucidchart is a fascinating software for keeping your business organized, as it can help you keep track of all your clients as well as the orders they place, and changes they need.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Lucid Chart gives me the opportunity to maintain my business organized. Everyday I need to talk to a number of clients, and keep track of what they want, changes to orders I already have, and so on, and I can do this within a few seconds thanks to my Lucid Chart software.

"Great tool -- once you get the hang of it"

What do you like best?

I love that there are so many features and functions to create the perfect flow chart. Lucidchart helps me look like a professional designer, even though I'm not. Their selection of shapes, forms, etc. is diverse and this tool certainly helps me visualize for myself and for my team.

What do you dislike?

It can be a bit cumbersome drawing out a custom chart and getting the flow lines and boxes just where you want them. Also, what the free version allows could be quite slim.

Recommendations to others considering the product

With all their templates and download options, there's a great deal of versatility. I definitely recommend taking enough time to familiarize yourself with the software and even if you're seasoned with software like this, I recommend starting with the free version (although limited) to see if this is where you want to go.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

often, we run into a project flow issue and this not only helps by visually showcasing the project flow, but also, product flow, UX, and allow for real time edits.

"Maps, Chart, Graphics and more"

What do you like best?

I love the flexibility of the platform and the connectivity. Be able to share charts with other members of my team is a huge deal.

What do you dislike?

Learning Curve. Although the support documents are great, it is difficult to learn if you've never used a similar platform before.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a much easier platform to use and integrate than Visio and it costs a lot less.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being able to create flowcharts, timelines, mind maps, and graphics is a great way to share information with my team. It has also made creating charts for clients easier as I can produce them during a Zoom meeting and share them with the client directly.

"Wonderful tool for user flow creation in a straight forward easy to learn manner."

What do you like best?

I love that I am able to create boxes and arrows, while inputting text to map out processes, as well as integrate my notes on the subject. You can personalize your LucidCharts with colors and shapes. It also just makes complex things easier to understand for all stakeholders.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that sometimes it is hard to drag items or move arrows without them moving drastically. Sometimes lines cross and it is also hard to keep shapes consistent. The templates are sometimes helpful, but they can also be hard to work with unique projects that require customization and personalization. It is also quite expensive per month.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend that others considering Lucidchart use it if they do not have a design background or not familiar with more advanced programs. This was simple and to the point with very little learning curve. I appreciate not having to spend a lot of time training myself, and instead making a decent product for work. I also think people should consider Lucidchart if they have a team setting, where they need to work on projects together and interact to change diagrams.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am solving the business problem of mapping out my user stories and task scenarios for usability testing. I am able to see how users flow from one action to the next, as well as communicate this to the stakeholders I am interacting with, so that they can better understand the process. You have to have UX flowchart, so that you can compare successful completion of tasks with unsuccessful attempts at tasks. It also helps me to better see how information should be grouped or organized, and is much faster than using post-it-notes.

"Great Product"

What do you like best?

I love that I am a novice image and work flow designer but that I can easily navigate, import and export images and build workflows, partnership showcases and various other docs that a web developer or designer would charge me thousands of dollars for.

What do you dislike?

Really nothing at all, it's a great app and I've only had one problem and that is being limited by the number of images I can download onto a page.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a great tool for charts and flows as well as an image hack outside of Adobe Cloud designer for web designs, images and clean marketing materials.

"Incredible tool used for breaking down large scale processes and workflows"

What do you like best?

We love that we can get absolutely and totally creative with this system! We use it all across our company, from pre-sales to training to implementations and even product and engineering! It allows us to see how we break down our large scale projects into smaller measurables.

What do you dislike?

We can get super granular and in the weeds on this, which can be tough to manage. It's very easy to use but also easy to get way too deep into the details and lose sight of what we're really trying to accomplish. But that's our own problem to solve for!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Across the entire company, we've found ways to put some action and workflow around our big ideas. This has been a truly great product to help us bring more focused momentum into our start-up!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Much better visibility into large scale projects and workflows that often slow us down when the vision isn't fully realized!

"Lucidchart Makes It Easy to Visualize Information to Diverse Audiences"

What do you like best?

I usually read Getting Started guides when beginning to use new software, but I didn’t have to do that for Lucidchart—yes, it’s THAT intuitive. In our information-heavy worlds, there is so much information coming at us all of the time, and plenty of that information is up for us to translate for other people. With Lucidchart, I’m able to quickly (!!!) visualize information in ways that are meaningful through extremely clear visual representation. The tools that Lucidchart provides doesn’t leave me having to write a guide on how to understand my infographic—I can write, design, and share. I often do not spend any more time than 1–2 hours on a chart with Lucidchart, because the tools and templates are already there for me to use.

What do you dislike?

There’s a limit on the number of templates that Lucidchart provides, and they could add more. While there are a ton of customization options, templates make it easy for busy people to do their jobs quickly and effectively.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it! Diagramming is often time-consuming and frustrating, and Lucidchart helps alleviate that with its ease of use and helpful templates. Use a template to get started and, once you’re comfortable, explore as many tools as you can. Lucidchart seems pretty simple, but is actually really powerful once you’re in the program.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Lucidchart to create low-fidelity wireframes in product/course design, as well as workflows to help others in and outside of the company understand how customers move through courses. By using Lucidchart to diagram these things, we save a ton of money by being able to solicit and receive feedback before we implement designs (and have to spend a ton of time redoing the work!).

"Lucidchart"

What do you like best?

The program is really easy to use, with a beautifully designed and aesthetically pleasing UI. It has an abundance of features, and the ability to make a variety of good, useful diagrams, which could be used in a board meeting while looking at home among diagrams made by other professional software.

What do you dislike?

There is no downloadable option, so the computer must have an active internet connection to be able to use the program. Also, it lacks a few key diagram options, which are possible to do but are made a lot more difficult by the program's lack of support for these features.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a very powerful software, which is a great addition to any team

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have made sure that all of the information presented to the company executives is easy to read and understand, and is visualized in a fresh, interesting way. It has increased the professionalism of my presentations, and that of my colleagues.

"Amazing diagramming experience"

What do you like best?

It has many options of templates to make process flows, presentations, diagrams, mental and conceptual maps. You can work in real time and in collaboration with everyone involved, it is an easy to use application and very flexible, it adapts to any scenario you need

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it can be difficult to move objects from one side to another, if the diagram is very extensive and how many objects can make the application slow

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Now you see it"

What do you like best?

Lucid charts is the premier diagramming software. I love many of the capabilities. I use Lucid for creating learning processes within our training and development team. The one feature I use a lot is layers. This allows me to socialize the charts with others. In fact, I never socialized process charts until I started using Lucid. Layers made it easy to get info to the right people.

What do you dislike?

Not much of a dislike - but I just don't seem to use it all the time. I use it for one big project, but then that's it. I imagine HR and engineering would use it more. If I had to nitpick, it would be the inability to dynamically change text.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You will definitely not regret trying out Lucid. When I started using it years ago, I never fully realized how useful it is to make things go visual.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Communication of process - hands down. Sometimes, our systems are so complex, it's hard to keep it all straight. Lucid solves this problem for us. Sharing is akin to Google sharing so it's very easy to socialize ideas.

"Keeps getting better"

What do you like best?

I started using Lucidchart on a non profit license and it keeps getting better. What I like most is the fluidity of use, where it's easy to create the flowcharts, etc you dream up without having to understand a complicated program. I also like that I can use it across platforms!

What do you dislike?

Sometimes I wish there were more visual options and customization tools available, like more unique box shapes and arrows. It seems like a very easy modification to overcome, though. I also think it's a bit expensive.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have always been good with other charting and graphing programs, but that didn't mean I enjoyed using them. I enjoy Lucidchart and find it progresses my productivity while still being fun. I get more done with less stress, and I feel confident others can help me complete my work on Lucidchart without much training.

"Free version not exactly user friendly"

What do you like best?

I like the templates available for flowcharts and organizational charts.

What do you dislike?

I dislike trying to make an organizational chart and then be cut off in the middle, because I don't have "premium" features.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want full use of this software, you will need to pay for premium features. There's a quantity limit to the amount of figures you can have per diagram or chart, which makes it difficult to start a project when you're unsure if you'll be able to finish it based on the size of the project. Even though the membership is less expensive than most software like them, there should still be no limit on the size of your project.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My company is designing a new organizational chart and needed a better template than using SmartArt on Excel.

"An amazing tool for multinational teams."

What do you like best?

-It shows edits in more or less real time, and allows everyone to see who is working on what.

-The lane/container functionality, which allows one to shift all objects within a container without impacting anything else on the diagram/map is a life saver.

-Inserting steps in a process couldn't be easier - no reconnecting of lines required, the software automatically splits the flow.

- An impressive library of shapes.

-Overall an amazing tool.

What do you dislike?

poor multilingual support. not only is the UI only available in English, but at least Japanese is rendered very strangely within the tool. I imagine other east Asian languages (especially traditional Chinese) would have similar problems.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Get a trial and take it for a spin. I think that giving it a try will be far more insightful than reading reviews.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I work on process improvement projects with teams based in 2-3 countries on a regular basis. Visualizing a BP is one of the earliest steps we take to make sure everyone is on the same page, but it is really difficult to do when everyone isn't in the same room - or more correctly, when everyone isn't drawing on the same canvas. Lucid chart completely resolves that issue. Conducting teleconference/video conference meetings has become so much more efficient.
