Pros: I love that the end product looks great, it produces a chart that I'm proud of. It helps me to communicate complex workflows or thought processes.

Cons: There is a bit of a learning curve when getting started. I'm sure there are tons of features that I have yet to master!

Pros: LucidChart is a great tool to use for developing diagrams. I found the tool pretty easy to learn and use. One will learn the more advance features with continued use, but the basics will be learnt after a few clicks. It has everything you need for your diagram and charting needs. Try it out!

Cons: The graphics generated feel a bit engineering like, so if it's elegant beautiful diagrams one is looking for, this might not be the first choice. And not all features are free.

Amazing online diagramming tool that I can use anywhere.

Pros: LucidChart is an amazing online app that I can use at my desk, on my tablet, and on my phone. It's simple touch controls are designed for efficiency. The templates provided are incredibly diverse. The ability to link other diagrams, notes, and comments to elements is a great feature. We have used this tool for effective remote collaboration on complex process flow topics and for generating professional, beautiful diagrams in high dollar proposals.

Cons: Transferring ownership of a document was somewhat of an unclear process, but we ended up just copying it. I wish it would allow for more notifications when documents change.

Pros: This makes mockups and flow charts very easy to make. Those are the two main things I use it for. It does help me organize any structures or other ideas I need to see to think through and that makes it great for going from planning to action on something.

Cons: When it comes to work flows and processes, it's difficult to connect items unless you're giving them a lot of space for clean lines and directions. A little more customization options when it comes color and shapes would be nice, but it works for what I need it to do and probably does a lot more than I use it for.

Overall: Provides an easy way to map out ideas, process, work flows and even wireframes and mockups.

Pros: Has Everything: L:C has literally every type of chart, bubble, line, and template that I can think of. I've yet to run into a situation where LC did not have something that would work.

Sharing Capabilities: Like Google Drive, users of LC can collaborate on charts. I know that our engineering team uses this a lot, I have yet to find a need to collaborate on charts that I've created, but I love how easy it is should the need arise. It even integrates with Google Drive to boot!

Does One Thing: Sometimes this is a con; when a software is just a One-Trick Pony. I think that its a trap that a lot of software companies fall into, especially young ones. They try to do too much too quickly and come to market with incomplete, inconsistent, or generic products in saturated markets. LC does charts and chart sharing so well that it can afford to do nothing else and I appreciate them for that.

Cons: Direction: If you are a chart rookie or simply are not sure where to begin with chart creation, LC has templates that can help, but the user has to approach LC with the creative vision and direction in play already. There is no sandbox mode for this part of the chart-making process; I still use a legal pad to start with. LC's templates are neatly categorized based on business needs or otherwise, but they are still just templates. In some respects, this is not so much a con as it is a natural limitation on the creativity chart-makers must overcome in the first place

A simple, easy to use tool for putting your brain on paper and being better organized.

Pros: I love the ability to have different shapes and colors to group various thoughts together. It is also very easy to add shapes and lay them out on the page. It is also easy to create a PDF of your document.

Cons: I had some issues with the free version at home that I didn't have with the version provided at work. It was a little glitchy but still usable.

Pros: Great way to produce a variety of professional graphics, schematics and related documents easily. Such documents are a great way to communicate, instead of being limited to office, excel, PowerPoint, etc

Cons: It too a few days to get a used to the opposite for adding text too various shapes, moving the viewing screen around, and how to best manipulate arrows.

Pros: I use Lucidchart for mind mapping in all of my classes, and the free student accounts make it easy to visualize all of the concepts in my classes. It's easy to use, beautiful, and kind of fun, to be honest.

Cons: It can sometimes load slowly and there are a lot of features that I don't use. That can take up extra space in the editor.

Pros: As an avid user of Visio software, I can honestly say Lucidchart rivals it in almost every way. Lucidchart allows me to create drawings, diagrams, and charts easily and store them online for access from anywhere.

Cons: Obviously this software does not have all of the features of Visio, and sometimes the lines in flowcharts get squirrley.

Pros: I started using this software in college for different classes like Information Technology and Operations Management. This software has also been great with helping me complete assignments. LucidChart is extremely user-friendly and I was able to learn how to use the software rather quickly. It's incredibly easy to drop in different shapes or images that you want and draw the connects from different processes/images to one another.

Cons: Only Con I can really think of is sometimes it can be frustrating to format shapes and resize them at times. While the software is fairly user friendly I have definitely gotten frustrated at times trying to resize images and have had issues when I was trying to connect certain processes to another and the program picks the wrong shape to connect to. I also wish it was a bit easier to print out these charts, but I don't think it's very fair to blame the software on that since everyone's charts are going to vary by width/size so it's up to the user to format it for printing.

Cons: The part that i like least when using this software is the lines when creating a process/flowchart. They are a little tricky to get to go exactly the way you want.

Overall: We were able to create and map out processes that save our company a large amount of money. We also were able to do fun things like map out seating charts and ping pong tournament brackets.

Pros: Lucidchart is hands-down the easiest to use flowcharting software I have experienced online. The software also has a gigantic library of UX images making this tool great for UX designers as well. The software is incredibly easy to use, offers a free version for making flowcharts using up to a limited number of elements. Education users can also get a great deal on Lucidchart for your school! Integration with Google products also adds to Lucidcharts value.

Cons: The software does come with a multitude of options and opportunities. Many of the shapes will not be useful to the common user but having options is not always a bad thing!

Overall: A free, easy to use, Google product integrated software that allows me to create flow-charts to visualize processes with ease.

Pros: It's easy to navigate for the most part and it is a quick way to lay things out visually to help improve processes and workflows. It doesn't take any kind of intensive training. It's pretty instinctual, actually, which makes it a great addition.

Cons: If you're OCD, it can be annoying sometimes to try and get your lines to match perfectly. Also, if you're not careful about how you lay it out, crossing lines can be confusing. It takes the path of least resistance, and sometimes that comes out a little weird.

Overall: It's cheap (compared to Vizio licenses) and it answered all our needs for workflow designs. Also, it has fun features that you can add in to help with other designs/layouts. (We used it to design seating charts in our call center and account management departments, too.)

Pros: The interface prioritized commonly used shapes and chart types to allow you to quickly access the necessary shapes you need. Layouts automatically re-adjust themselves to your diagram which allows you to focus on your diagram rather than fitting it neatly on one page!

Cons: As I mainly use the free version there was a limit on the number of elements that could be included on one document- not really a con but as I wasnt in a postion to take out a paid plan for the business, it did limit me against using it for more complex diagrams

Overall: Great cloud based alternative to Visio- allowed me to pick up when I left off when out of the office

Pros: Very good set of templates to draw upon. Good range of functionality and I particularly make use of the Present function. This allow s for more dynamic presentations than you can achieve with Powerpoint or other traditional presentation tools.

Cons: Whilst it is easy to learn the basics, it can be a difficult tool to master. It can be fiddly when you want to make changes to diagrams, particularly mind maps.

Overall: It makes the sharing of information much easier - with the output and sharing features. This helps in using the tool as a brainstorming and planning tool.

Cons: The Google backup feature can be a little clunky sometimes, but it may have improved since the last time I checked. I have noticed gradual improvements, so maybe they've tackled it and I didn't even know about it!

Cons: The only thing that I dislike is sometimes the arrow lines can get messed up when you add an element.

Overall: We use it to chart all of our marketing flow charts. It is easy to use and can be share easily. It's saved us a lot of time by providing a visual chart to others in the department.

Pros: We like how it is so much cheaper than Visio but does everything we needed to do in Visio. It's also very convenient that it is web-based, as you can use your account from any computer and it makes user turn over easier.

Cons: Some features (like changing line style) were not very intuitive, but after clicking around for a few minutes, I found what I needed to. Very short, targeted training videos might help, as opposed to longer, more generic ones.

Overall: Everything we needed from Visio in a fraction of the price. Also, having a web-based platform makes it easier to access and turn over accounts when users leave the company.

Cons: Not super intuitive, user interface could use some work, and its not as fully featured as more expensive options.

Pros: Easy to use, even easier to test it as they offer a free limited version online. I really like that it provides several different object to be used within charts. And i also like the it is possible to add titles and text within any area of the chart. I felt like the system was very easy to learn, in fact I don't that i ever did any more than they quick tutorial.

Cons: I don't really have any, it doesn't include some of the features that other charting system offer, but I don't think those are cons, unless those feature are a must for you.

Overall: I can go online an create a chart at any time from anywhere and that is really great.

Super easy to use, awesome UX and usability.

Pros: The software is super easy to use. No real instruction is needed to get going from the get go. Drag and drop make things super easy.

Cons: I don't have that many cons of the software, I believe it would be better if they had a few more plugins for additional content to span across multiple departments.

Overall: Super easy to use and quick concepts from idea to inception.

Overall: As a graduate student in a business related topic, I love this chart builder. The option to use an app while I ride the bus to complete charts on-the-go is --hands down-- the best user function of Lucid Chart. Also, the various download option for a completed chart has been a wonderful tool that I use frequently.

Recommendations to other buyers: Nope, I am not trained in the ins-and-outs of software design. As far as I'm concerned, all I can say it "Thank you!" for offering a student discount!

Pros: Pretty easy to use.

Overall: I have looked at and tried a number of different wireframing tools. Design and layout of web pages and software applications is a great deal of our business. After trying a bunch of different tools, we decided on Lucidchart. It has all of the basics and a lot of images to choose from. It allows us to easily share our designs with our customers without having to purchase additional licenses. Only negative would be that it's hard to move elements around if there a lot on the page.

Comments: Lucidchart is a platform-neutral way to create appealing diagrams in both industry-standard and also ad-hoc styles. The user experience is remarkably responsive, published images are suitable for projected presentations and printed documents, the product is well-integrated with Google tools (for sign-on and saving) and the fidelity of diagrams is nicely preserved when exported for colleagues that prefer desktop tools, such as MS Visio, MS Word, and Adobe Photoshop.

Pros: Easy to use, maintain and share. It has a lot of flowcharts and shapes, and lets you copy the contents of another document to your current document even you don't have some user image uploaded in your current document.

Cons: I didn't find any cons until now.

Comments: I absolutely adore Lucidchart! As a Computer Information Systems major, I use Lucidchart for many assignments in my classes including Swimlanes, GANTT charts, PERT charts, Data Flow charts, Work Breakdown Structures, basic flowcharts, diagrams, mockups, and even artistic images such as logos.

Pros: -Easy to learn and use -Compatible with almost any format -Easy to download in any file type -Cloud storage in Lucidchart or on Google Drive -Unlike most flowchart software, LC offers a wide variety of symbols, shapes, and images

Cons: -Sometimes Unable to import previous flowcharts -Can't import images -Often loses connectivity if using web app -While I understand LC is primarily a flowchart software, it is often tiresome to create other types of diagrams such as swim lanes and GANTT charts

Recommendations to other buyers: Lucidchart is the perfect app for those who do independent flowchart work. It syncs perfectly with Google and stores documents entirely in the cloud. Simple, effective, mobile, and practical.

Pros: It's easy to access and integrates with Google (our email platform).

Cons: We did experience frequent connectivity and broadband issues, but our network infrastructure has been updated, and these issues are less frequent.

Overall: We have been using Lucidcharts for several years and love the improved features (web images, collaboration, drag and drop, automatic arrows, etc.). We are a one-to-one laptop school, and our students are advanced digital media users, so new users might take more time to learn the product, but once learned, should have no trouble using it for a variety of tasks. We use the charts for vocabulary maps, concept mapping, writing planners, project planning, storyboards, and decision trees. Thank you Lucidchart for allowing our small school for at-risk learners grow using your product. Your generosity is appreciated. I encourage all of our teachers to use Lucidcharts!

Pros: Online and sharable.

Cons: Moving and spacing of objects. View options.

Overall: Lucidcharts is pretty good, however it is not as user friendly as Visio is. The most annoying gaps are the sizing and moving of items does not snap into the grid as it does in Visio, putting objects in the exact desired spot can be difficult. Also the view is annoying. I feel that there is less view space than in Visio and it defaults to a zoomed in view. Not a big deal but just annoying. Otherwise, Lucidcharts can be used to do anything else Visio does.

Pros: The basic functionality of creating dynamic maps on Lucid Chart any way you want them.

Cons: Not intuitive; if you want to create something intricate or custom, it is difficult to figure out.

Overall: I've only had a few minor problems using Lucid software products. To some degree, the software isn't incredibly intuitive, so I've had to do web searches for instructions on completing very basic functions through the software, but then could easily figure out what I was doing from there. That mostly applies to Lucid Chart. However, I tried to use Lucid's floor plan tool once and simply could not figure it out. That one was not intuitive for a custom project; perhaps it could have been more intuitive had I been putting together a floor plan for an apartment or something, but it was not easy to customize the components for my project.

Pros: Lots of templates you can use

Cons: Difficult to remember the types of objects possible within each template. Often I end up opening up multiple templates ED / Flow Chart / Mind Map to determine what concept fits best for my work

Overall: I really enjoy using this program for collaborative projects. The ability for everyone to collaborate in a single space is great.

Comments: Lucidcharts is a great tool for helping students as they begin their computer science career.
We use Lucidcharts in class to quickly design basic programs (structure charts and flowcharts) The focus is on the content - not the tool, because the tool is so easy to use. It helps students to easily organize their programs into functions and see the flow of information.

The range of tools available in Lucidcharts make it something the students can use throughout their career: from requirements analysis to networking diagrams- there are tools for every type of system you need to visualize. it a great communication and collaboration tool.

Comments: Had to use this to build concept maps for a physiology course and it made it a lot easier to build and keep track of. Loved it! Plus we had to do it with a group and you didn't have to meet up to work on it, it worked while you were eon different computers. The Professor could see who did what too so participation points were easy to grade!

I really like how the UX is designed to be similar to Google Apps.

Comments: I do valuestream, process, req/resp flow, and system mapping with Lucidchart. It works great for all that. What really blew me away was the presentation mode hotspots, AWS metadata import and I hear there's one coming for Salesforce.com. The product and the roadmap are going to keep me with them for a while, i'd imagine

Pros: Custom mapping objects. AWS import. custom templates. Static PDF and HTML shares for non-users. Mind Mapping. Tight integration to Google Docs: Embeddable Diagrams FTW!

Cons: The app is an HTML/JS SPA (just like gmail and the like) so there can be some variable behavior inconsistencies as the JS libraries improve and between browsers. The new version of the app has eliminated most of that now, it seems.

Recommendations to other buyers: when you compare to the standalone app mapping tools or even gliffy, LC stands head and shoulders above, there really isn't a comparison anymore.

Comments: It could be better. Could be easier to use or maybe have a tutorial overlay for first-time users. The interface could use some updating. Looks like its from the 90's

Pros: Very flexible.

Cons: Can be slow sometimes.

Overall: Lucidchart offers a great platform allowing for the creation of a wide range of visual charts and diagrams previously only possible through a locally installed program. Lucidchart's ability to run from a web browser and store your content in the cloud makes it very flexible to consume ultimately driving up efficiency.
