Pros: I use mindmaps for brainstorming sessions for business analysis and project management. Coggle is my favorite service to use! First of all, it works seamlessly with Google services, and so covers our sign-on and team drive integration. Sharing files is a no brainer because it so easy and its already saved/shared to the team via GTDrive.

The coolness factor and user experience is what made it click for the team. It just looks so cool (its animation of branch sprouting, the options loop, and esp its color scheme!). Simple and intuitive to use.

We use Coggle for collaborative work on the same mindmap (within the same war room in the office or together with those working from home).

Cons: Given that its a web app, it can't compare to the full-featured native apps available out there (e.g., themes, images, presentation, brainstorming mode). I find it still a bit difficult or cumbersome to use for presentations esp for big mindmaps, hard to collapse/focus branches.

Pros: I love the ease of use and quick user experience. Coggle rarely lags and is super fast when I need to quickly map my thoughts. I also appreciate the keyboard shortcuts which make this even more true. I am really impressed with the functionality as a whole. I've tried creating simple mind maps for my clients and they are always very impressed - it's helpful for them to see things visually. This alone has made the software worth it!

Cons: I wish they made it easier to customize a mind map....made it more free to write floating text or notes on the side of the mind map. Things are restricted within the format of the map you're building, but I'd like to be able to add disconnected pieces. The keyboard shortcuts are a little convoluted; I'd love if they made the shortcuts easier to use and remember.

Overall: Easy way to record my thoughts; an organized presentation for clients; looks great; very fast UI; creating mind maps helps us organize our ideas for future products

Pros: Collaborative. This is the best part of using Coggle. Brainstorming via teams is a breeze because each of our team members can use their own laptops and edit the same mindmap all at the same time. It's very easy to share mindmaps to other users, and it readily gets backed up in our Google Drive.

It's beautiful. I love the look of it. It looks and feels very organic and so the team loves using it (the minor animations, the circle action buttons, the color combinations, the UX UI) we just love it. And when team members love the tools, they most probably end us using it (and having fun doing so).

Cons: I find it difficult to use for Presentations (e.g., collapsing all branches, visibility/highlight of branches, etc). Perhaps it just needs a little getting used to, but I've tried other stand-alone mindmap applications which didn't feel too clunky for making presentations.

Pros: I use mind maps to gather and organize ideas. Google helps out with the sharing and collaboration part since it's very easy to share and work together on a mindmap at real time.

I love the color scheme, animation, and just how visually appealing this mindmap tool is. From my experience, if the tool is not easy to use and ugly, my colleagues tend not to use it.

Backups is seamless via Google drive integration.

Cons: There seems to be no way to auto-arrange the branches

There are no other ways to customize the look of the mindmap, e.g., via themes.

Pros: Easy to learn and use right away. It is colorful and makes the mindmaps fun and visually appealing

Coggle is linked to my Google account, so it's easy for me to share, store, and backup my mindmaps.

Cons: There is no function to auto-sort/arrange the branches. Without this, it can be a bit cumbersome to put an order on a big mind map.

It is web based, hence I need to be online to use this app.

Overall: Let Coggle help you put order on your brain's wonderful ideas, concepts, tasks, and what have you. It's colorful interface is so easy and fun to use. Mindmaps is now made collaborative in real-time.

Pros: This product is pretty easy to use, and has a short learning curve. Even the free version provides great functionality. I use this system to brainstorm project steps, develop employee hierarchies, and map out program areas for my company. I have used it to plan everything from multi-county projects to birthday parties. For visual learners and thinkers like me, it is an excellent tool.

Cons: A few usability suggestions. It would be nice to be able to expand and collapse complex branches with a button. It would also be nice to be able to bring expanded categories back into larger groups, instead of just getting more and more broken down. This would allow timeline style planning, which would be helpful as a project management tool.

Overall: Very nice program, with room for improvement as well. Even with its few faults, it is still an important part of the creative planning process for me.

Pros: I've worked with mind-mapping software in the past (lucidcharts, insEYEte, mindmeister, etc.) and Coggle is a really solid platform. Easy to pick up and use, as solid integrations, and seems to perform better with every version! Awesome for quickly mapping out an idea and collaborating with co-workers.

Cons: I'd like to see more features/ways to visualize your nodes. Maybe a way to visualize nodes on a map like insEYEte or as a presentation like in MindMeister. But once again -- those are heavier packages so it might bog down the lightweight feel of coggle.

Pros: Our infrastructure team uses coggle to help prioritize projects and to make it easy to delegate tasks and update each members of its progress. Coggle is very easy to use and has a user-friendly interface.

Cons: We have been using coggle for two years now and it has not presented any problem. If I do encounter any issue, I will definitely tell Coggle team. So far, it's great!

Pros: Free plan suffice my need but the diagrams are made public

If workflow diagram is very big then we can save it in parts

Workflow diagrams can be shared on email ID's and multiple people can work at the same time that is a great feature.

Export to pdf, image plain text easily.

Versioning support is a life saver we can go back to any version and save multiple versions

Cons: None as of now, suffices my need for free :)

Pros: Online mindmaps that are working great. I tried lots of paid and free mindmap soft, but this one has the best free version.

Cons: The main cons is price. You've got only 3 mindmaps for free, but if you're not storing it (there is also option for export to save locally) you could re-use just those 3.

Pros: The tool is simple to use... within seconds you understand the concept of it and are able to get organized. I am currently using this to map out a plan for escape room. Obviously, not it's intended purpose... but surprisingly useful. I also appreciate the ability to bring in a team to work together on a project. Also helpful for creating an escape room with a team.

Cons: Some of the tools are not obvious. It took me a moment to see how to add additional branches to an box... simply right-click!

Overall: As I said above, this is a surprisingly useful tool for creating escape rooms. Maybe there is a group of people and business owners there to market it to?

Great experience using Coggle to organize concepts for corporate training.

Pros: Looks SO GOOD and SIMPLE. All of my attention can go into the content.

Works great to slowly discover the best ways to organize information. The ability to grab an item in one tree and move it over into another tree is what supports this emergent ordering capability.

Cons: Can get a little tripped up while trying to capture a brain dump and you perhaps click a few wrong buttons.

Overall: Sharable means of determining overarching structure of things, and organizing details into that structure.

Pros: I am a visual thinker, and it is so helpful to be able to lay out project thoughts and concepts in such a clear way. I am still using he free version, because it is so easy to use and functional that I haven't been tempted to purchase the paid version yet.

Cons: I would love to add multiple starting points on the same canvas.

Overall: Very cool way to visualize projects, and very functional even with the free version.

Pros: Coggle is simple and visually appealing. I like how it's flexible enough to meet whatever my needs are for a different project - I can keep it simple or make it extremely complex.

Cons: The features are great but can be hard to use. I'm constantly re-opening the Help menu so that I can figure out how to delete a branch, move a branch, add a new branch of the same level, etc. I might remember all the commands the more I use it, but I struggle with it (especially because "undo" is not the typical command-Z that I am used to).

Overall: I use Coggle to map out projects and ideas with multiple parts that I can't keep track of in a linear Google Doc. It's a great first step when I'm working out what exactly a project will entail, and I can add and move components more easily when it's represented in a non-linear mind map. This kind of visualization not only helps me, but my employer too - she is extremely right-brained and holistic in her thinking, so I NEED this kind of tool if I'm going to communicate with her effectively.

A great tool for mind mapping!

Pros: This software allows the users to create branches, connections whenever you are trying to analyze complex things. The colors help since this makes your idea clear.

Cons: The limited number of colors available becomes a limitation whenever you are trying to map complex processes. Also a space for notes/comments can also help

Pros: Super easy. it was useful from the start. I can start using it right away. Even using it with mobile, it feels not so different compared to its web app. It is just flowing. Click here and there, drag, copy, paste, rename, move, just working.

Cons: Not a big deal, but a few times I found the node in mobile app was moving to the bottom far away from the center. I could just undo it, but still annoying.

Overall: I can share my ideas to my friend, collaborate with other.

Pros: very simple and intuative - a brilliant software for creating maps of any detailed concept. i used it for project deisng maps ( teams and actions)

Cons: the fact you cant add text unless it is connected to a node & a branch. if it worked more like a free-canvas, with the ability to add branches if nessesary would be perfect.

Overall: i love it. i use it often. I use it for work, with team mates and in client workshops. Best to have the map made online, download, print it off for a workshop then have attendees edit it live, and you can capture their views on the digital version as they work.

Very powerful tool.

Pros: The branching. Every thing can be branched, connected and makes your wire frame looks neat. Also, the colors help a lot

Cons: The only thing I can see it missing is a space for a brief description of what that certain branch is.
