Lucidspark is well suited for teams who want to be aligned in understanding. Lucidspark even works well as an ideation or brainstorming tool an individual can use in isolation. Lucidspark would not work so well if it is needs to be an authoritative source of information but luckily there is a way to convert Lucidspark to Lucidchart

It is well suited to my job requirements as I bring employees in, and I help offboard them as well. This tool helps me when I need to make sure all items are completed by a certain time frame, so I would say it holds us accountable. Someone who doesn't manage a group of people may not find this as useful when dealing with others but could use it for their own accountability when needing to track their accomplishments.
Read full review Pros Intuitive and simple design is one of its strong points, so zero learning curve! Clearing away the whole board or parts of the board is a breeze to avoid confusion. The different pens with colors and nib thickness allow easy explanations. Read full review It helps make various workspaces. Each workspace can be used for a different set of task management and can be shared with the people involved. Creating task lists. We can create various task lists, the list title could be the status of the task, for example, In progress, approval, completed, etc. You can slide your task cards from one list title to another. Trello cards have a huge set of features like adding the heading and description of the task, you can also attach certain associated links and documents to the cards as well.

I am very likely to renew Trello, because it doesn't cost anything to do so. I am also very likely to use Trello's upgraded features in the future because a lot of my team's data is stored on there and they have already gotten used to the platform. Trello is very easy for new team members to pick up, making the onboarding and usability very streamlined.

This is the where Lucidspark has some opportunity to have improvement, the learning curve can be not as intuitive as Lucidchart. The main area of improvement would be to have a similar interface as Lucidchart. For example, to scroll between the x and y axis can be difficult until the user discovers the tab on the left hand side that has the arrow and the hand. Until the user discovers that tab on the left hand side, the chart is difficult to navigate around.

Overall, Trello is a great tool to use. It's very user-friendly, very powerful and we've set it up to work well for our team. I've recommended it to others who need something free or very cheap and it's worked well for them too. If you're wanting something with more muscle, then I'd suggest looking at either

From the sales team to the online training resources, there is so many ways that you can get information and questions answered the people over at Lucid really go out their way to ensure you and your teams success not to mention all of the help and support in app. Its the attention to detail and understanding of their user base that puts them over the other companies.

I haven't had much need to contact their support because the product is easy to use and pretty bug-free. I did reach out to them about swimlanes and I was able to find the information I needed very quickly and it was thorough and accurate information about current functionality. I love that they use their own product. That's always a good sign.

For our small business, getting a few of us started well on Trello was the key, I think. As long as a couple of us were really comfortable with the interface, we could lead others and help them with any questions. From now on, anyone who works with us just naturally uses Trello for information sharing - it's just part of what we do.

It is a very accessible and wide range of tools to help kick-off any projects and brainstorming sessions. It is user-friendly in terms of content sorting and collaborative ideations. It is also loaded with good quality export options and colours for a very practical client presentation and team understanding of the content across boards.

Trello is easy for a non-technical person to use. Other management systems, like
, frighten away less computer-savvy users. I've found this to be instrumental in getting volunteers to agree to step in and get fully involved with projects--particularly those that might span the entire year or involve many different pieces to completion.
Read full review Return on Investment I've made a Planning Poker template in Lucid that we use for Sprint Planning, and it's made it easier to switch to Story Points and forego task breakdown and time estimation altogether. It does save time during Sprint Planning but that's less significant than the fact that developers no longer feel the need or pressure to conform to whatever random time estimate was provided. That's thanks to Story Points, not Lucid itself, but Lucid surely made Planning Poker a lot easier than it used to be. As an added bonus, it stores voting history, so we can go back during the Retrospective and review particular items of interest that we completely botched the sizing of. Read full review Trello keeps me organized, focused, and on track. I could filter the Trello board to only see my issues and understand what I needed to work on and when. Trello helped our team implement an agile structure. It's a very simple kanban method of viewing all of your team's tasks and statuses. You can completely customize the columns to your team's specific workflow and create tags relevant to your work. Trello helps reduce unnecessary communications between teams. When I want to request translations, I simply create a card on the localization Trello board -- no need to directly message anyone on the team, and I can watch the status of the card change from "in progress" to "in review" to "translated," all without having to directly ask for updates.
