As students working in groups, we like to use Overleaf to write our project reports. The fact that you can work with several people on the same document at the same time just works really well for us. Together with the fact that you can see the changes right away is just really useful for our group work.

Overleaf is good to use in a lot of scenarios where something is to be written as a group. However, I believe that it is only good up to a certain amount of people working on the document at once. While I am unsure when it becomes too much, I got no doubt that there is a limit for when it is that good. Though normally, our group size of up to six people has been fine to work with in Overleaf.

I use Overleaf for writing purposes, both scientific and collaborative. It functions well as an easy to use, easy to start up with, Latex editor without having to install additional software and compilers. One of my main use cases for Overleaf is as a tool for writing scientific and research papers with partners. I also use the documentation for Latex whenever I am lost with syntax.
  • Easy to get started and compile documents
  • Collaborative scientific writing
  • Latex documentation
  • Built in templates
  • Comments and chat features
  • Version history is a great feature but only available in the paid version
Overleaf is great for writing scientific and research documents, especially when there is a lot of technical detail and mathematics involved. It shines when using complicated formats such as double column, or changing font sizes and still maintaining professional looking formatting.

One of the best features is the collaborative writing with people in your team. You can work on a document together, leave notes and comments for the other person to read, and if you have the paid subscription the version history feature is great.

The only time I think Overleaf is not suitable is when the document complexity does not justify it - for a simple document without mathematics and just a few paragraphs, or a rough document which does not need to be shared - a simple Microsoft Word document will be better
