Overall Satisfaction with Lucidchart

[Lucidchart is] really intuitive for former Adobe Illustrator users. I really appreciated being able to use well known shortcuts as space + mouse drag, or alt+mouse wheel.
Although, those shortcuts and the use of libraries and in software image browsing may take some time on people with no design software experience whatsoever[.]
[Lucidchart is] currently being used by the operations department to design and share growth plans, company structure proposals and capacity planning.
Personally i am testing a new approach now by creating a comprehensive flowchart on every step needed to edit a video ad at Readyset, that will be used as an onboarding tool for video editors starting in the company.
  • Take pictures from copy paste instead of having to manually input a file
  • The ability to see others users perspective, in other to check flowcharts readability.
  • Have numerous shape options, specially linked to services we use, like AWS
  • An incorporated image browser! Yay!
  • Sharing is not too clear.
  • Better visibility in how in the company is actually in my team and who needs to be invited
  • Loading time on extensive charts
  • Time saving in onboarding employees, in a context of exponential growing that is key
  • Clarification provided while sharing complex ideas remotely
  • Excellent collaboration yo allow my team helping me in time tight situations
We honestly just use the Slack integration and it has been sloppy and not very helpful to use. I appreciate the ability to send invitations through the app, but half of the time the link does not even appears on the chat, and I end up creating a share link and copy pasting it
Didn't had to use it, which is nice[.]

Do you think Lucidchart delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Lucidchart's feature set?


Did Lucidchart live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Lucidchart go as expected?


Would you buy Lucidchart again?


Haven't used them to be honest.
Thing that Lucidchart is Well suited for:
Designing workflows
Capacity planning
Maybe onboarding. Testing now.
Maps to comprehend company dynamics.

Things that Lucidchart is not that well suited for:

Design in general. Tried to do a small brochure and very quickly noticed that is very uncomfortable and not design friendly
