Cvent Event Diagramming (Formerly Social Tables)

Cvent Event Diagramming is well suited for any type of event planner. This tool is great for planning parties, luncheons, dinners, weddings, corporate events, training seminars, hiring events, etc. I specifically like this software for the corporate events I arrange because we have a lot of various event areas that need to be perfectly situated in order to make the flow of the space work. Cvent Event Diagramming allows me to work with hotels and venues so we can figure out the best use of each space

We spend a lot of time building out workflows, process maps, and collaborating with stakeholders across our internal teams and throughout the company. Lucidchart is extremely effective in managing these processes. We have found that any time we need to start brainstorming on a problem or working through a specific scenario, our default procedure is to open a shared Lucidchart/Lucidspark board that everyone can be collaborating together in. It has proved especially useful during COVID as our team was entirely virtual and allowed for that interaction as if we were all in the room together.

Pros

Cvent Event Diagramming (Formerly Social Tables)

  • User-friendly. It's easy for us to train other team members/staff/volunteers to use the front-end system for registration and event check-in.
  • Social Tables is great for creating custom room layouts and diagrams.
  • Social tables is customizable. We're able to capture specific information for attendees, and can "tag" them when additional info is needed.

Lucidchart

  • Serverless. You don't need to install another program to create diagrams, you just open a new tab and there you are, ready to go.
  • Collaboration. You don't need to update your colleague diagram by creating a new file and creating a new file version, you both are in the same diagram and you and all the team are free to update it at any time, at the same time, you are seeing the same thing. That is really helpful and time-saving.
  • Shapes. It has any shape that you can think of and [Lucidchart] is always updating them, I can create an Azure solution architecture, an AWS one, an old on-premise solution. Or just put standard shapes to describe a business process. Providing so many specific shapes help the diagram to express specific information, and for specific teams, that's less text and more visual information, you don't need to put a text below a standard database shape (this is an Azure SQL database), you just put the azure shape and done. That....is beautifully helpful.

Cons

Cvent Event Diagramming (Formerly Social Tables)

  • A development that would be useful would be the ability to reorder the diagrams to a custom order in one event so that when exported as one document, they are in an order that can be customized to flow well for the meeting planner.
Monique Frankfort | TrustRadius Reviewer

Lucidchart

  • I wish there was a short sentence for each shape as you hover over it that explained what it was typically used for in a process flow. For example, hovering over the diamond would show a box that said 'diamond- used to represent a decision/choice'
  • I wish there was a way to add an asterisk that you could click on to expand for further detail. Some steps can be expanded on but the additional details aren't really necessary or are too long to put all within that one shape.
  • I'd like if you could add a question/note and then tag a specific person to that note. That way, if you had a question or needed more info about a certain step, you could tag whomever would have the answer and then they can come in and provide the answers.

Lucidchart is very easy and intuitive to get into, even if you are not tech-savvy. Some of my colleagues had never used such a tool before but were able to quickly jump into it and found the interface quite easy to use. I am giving a rating of 8 because some of the more "technical" features could perhaps be made more user-friendly.

The support was exceptional, and they remained an arm's reach away for when we ran into any questions after we began using the tool. Overall, we experienced phenomenal customer service. We also had more than one web-based call where their team would walk us through examples and answer any questions we had.

Maybe, I am not right person to answer this question mentioned here as I have never talked to or contacted the LucidChart customer service team or raised any service ticket for any reason ever. So am not sure I would be able to answer this questions correctly as I have never use their support.

Alternatives Considered

Cvent Event Diagramming (Formerly Social Tables)

Cvent Social Tables is easier to use and has second to none customer service. Overall, we found that social tables provides a more lifelike, realistic depiction of the space, which is key when organizing massive show floors. It is also easier to show why certain booths are priced higher/lower than others due to where they are in the space.

Lucidchart

As stated earlier. Viso lacks the SaaS component, making it more difficult to use on non-windows devices. They may have since changed this, but that was one of the biggest factors from moving. Also the output format isn't viewable unless its specified as a .jpeg or other picture output. Meaning sharing the file with non windows users makes it difficult. This is especially true for legacy files that may need updating.
