I started exploring Lucidspark due to the fact that I needed some tools to help during meetings, especially during our brainstorming meetings with our own product teams. That's why I started exploring Lucidspark. I have not yet used Lucidspark's Virtual Whiteboard for brainstorming high-level ideas and concepts yet. The way I've used Lucidspark is that I start drawing on my canvas and I screen share what I'm doing. I have not used the Virtual Whiteboards.

Currently, we are using Lucidspark to design and export database structures. We mostly use it just for that, however, we were using other software for doing mind maps, and we're starting to introduce the use of Lucidspark also for this purpose. We were also using another software for designing infrastructure, the architecture of software, and infrastructure in deployments. We have recently started moving into Lucidspark for that as well.

We are using Lucidspark for brainstorms and for meetings. We have also been using it for our action plan, to plan our strategy steps.

I use Lucidspark to brainstorm ideas. Suppose I want to create a new dashboard or new visualization in Power BI or Tableau. Before doing that, I want to brainstorm how I want my visualization to be. For that purpose, I am using Lucidspark.

This is a product that is really useful in my role as a customer success manager. Our company develops marketing automation tools that Fortune 500, enterprise companies use with their internal marketing channels. We use both Lucidspark and Lucidchart. With Lucidspark, we use it for workshops that we plan with our clients. These are strategy workshops that help them map out what they will ultimately do in our product before they actually touch it. They have to map out what the different messages are that they're going to send, what channels they're going to send them to, and what the strategy is for who receives those messages. They decide how are they going to target, personalize, et cetera. For this use case, Lucidspark becomes a virtual whiteboard for our clients during these workshops because we've not been able to go in person since the pandemic started. Normally, we would do these works at the client site but now, we can bring it to a virtual environment and make it a really interactive experience. The client actually walks away with something really visual and really clear that shows them what they are going to use to build their system.

I used this product for coursework in a design class as a university student. It was primarily for UML diagrams, activity diagrams, and several other diagrams that are typically used in IT.

I am a consultant to the financial services industry. I use Lucidspark for process development for the different contracts that I've got. I run it on all of my devices including my desktop, iPhone, and iPad.

I've used it for team meetings where we all collaborated on different things on the same project, and then I've used it to create a lot of process maps and things to illustrate ideas and processes for the team. I am using their web-based solution.

I've been mainly using it to make flow charts and kind of brainstorm ideas for my business. I have not used it for anything else yet. I'm going to expand later into more collaborative forms of using Lucidspark. I've installed it on my computer.

I'm a private tutor. I run my own tutoring business. I use Lucidspark for my teaching purposes. I use the free version. When I have an online class in our school, on Zoho Meeting or Zoom, I sometimes share writings and use the whiteboard. It's easy to use and it has a lot of tools in it. So I use it as a whiteboard for my students. I use it for remote sessions.

I mostly use it to make mind maps and some process charts for the place I work. Sort of like work processes, the flow of things, so everyone knows what you need to do. I'm pretty sure that in the coming weeks when I start to use it more on a regular basis, maybe every day or a couple of times a week, that's probably when I will figure it out more. But for the time being, it's been really good. We have started to integrate some stuff on Slack, but individually on its own, and then we've also started Lucidspark. At some point down the road, there will be an integration between the two programs, but we haven't started that yet. We're trying to move everything to Slack.

I'm an Agile coach, so I use Lucidspark to facilitate retrospectives and user-story workshops. We're using the latest web version.

Our primary use case was to put together a presentation for spelling and demonstrating our product and process charts for processes in the insurance industry.

Primarily, I was using Lucidspark for the whiteboarding and collaboration. The whole thing was initiated because I was trying to work using the workflow on LucidChart, which triggered me to have a kind of a collaboration meeting. Nowadays, because of COVID-19, everything is virtual. So, I thought it would be a good idea to collaborate over this collaborative whiteboard using my flow in LucidChart over to Lucidspark. Lucidspark was pretty useful because of the integration feature available, e.g., what you do in Lucidchart can be easily rolled over to Lucidspark. However, I feel there could be more integrations built into it, which would help to bring in more easier integrations from work that we have done on other tools, like Jira or Confluence.

I have a startup. Other members of the leadership team are located across the country in two other places. We do ideation using Lucidspark to have a central repository for our notes, so we have a place to come back and take a look as we move on.

I have used it primarily during conference calls to share things and to use it as a whiteboard tool, so that I am able to draw block diagrams with remote people, just like I would on a whiteboard in person.

I have experimented with using it for brainstorming and I have identified a use case that I want to use it for, but I haven't practiced that use case with it yet. That use case, which I am really excited about trying to use it for, is affinity diagramming, also known as the KJ mapping process.

It started out to build flowcharts for organizational structures. It has evolved into more of a project management tool, outlining systems and opportunity flows from the inside of our business. We use these visuals that we create to speak with our software implementation partner so they can build the structure that we need for our systems. I am the one on my team who uses it 90 percent of the time, as far as creating documents.

What we've used it for so far is facilitating a couple of meetings. We used it in a discovery gathering session with a client and they were all given the link to jump into the board. We gave them the ability to create and edit while we retained the overall power to move things and keep everyone focused. That was good and they enjoyed it. With COVID this year, they said it was a really great, innovative tool to use since everyone was sitting in their individual homes.

I'm using it for two purposes. One is internal brainstorming with team members inside of my own organization, and the other is external facilitation, in a consulting capacity, with our clients.

So far, I have only used it for making flowcharts.

I was developing mostly personal charts. I was using the brainstorming function and mapping my thoughts. I was using the sticky notes and organizing different ideas into categories. I was just manually using all the different tools and functions, drawing arrows. Later, I saw that they also have templates, which I thought was really cool. However, I was just manually using it for creating charts for personal organization and organizational development as well as doing organization for my nonprofit. I was mostly working on organization, like categorizing, where I would list different projects, as my team had so many different projects that we were working on. I was just listing, then categorizing them, like color coding the different projects. That was the main thing that I was using Lucidspark for. I was using a web version. I didn't download anything.
