Good performance, user-friendly, easy to create flowcharts and documentation

What is our primary use case?

I primarily use Lucidchart for mobile app development.

Pros and Cons

  • "Creating flowcharts and documentation is easy to do and the results are very nice."
  • "I would like to have access to more colorful and more vibrant icons."

What other advice do I have?

We do not currently use the integration with other products but it is something that we are planning to do in the future. Similarly, we do not yet use the functionality that allows us to compare versions of documents. I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.

Made my operations simpler, clearer, and easier to do. Learning curve for advance features needs to be more intuitive.

What is our primary use case?

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… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "I really liked the sticky notes. They made it easy to change the colors, just click and add ideas, move those ideas around, and then connect them. I felt like they were very intuitive and easy to use."
  • "There are still some things that are a little confusing or too advanced, which is why it's not easy to use and hop on. There could be some other features that could be added, like other templates."

What other advice do I have?

This is a great intuitive platform for making charts. I liked how easy to use it was. You should try it. There are tools that can make your life easier. It's good to invest in them because they will make the productivity and efficiency of your organization better. I have not collaborated with anyone yet, but I did see that feature in the tutorial today. I thought it was really useful. So, I might try it the next time I can, but I haven't used it yet. However, I thought it was really good when I saw it. If there are more tutorials in the future, it would be really useful. The solution does have…

We're looking at Miro vs. Lucidspark for non-profit use with over 100 preferable users in the organization. Which is better in terms of an intuitive user-interface, functions and value for money?
