Overall Satisfaction with Lucidchart

It's a pretty simple tool as I said before, allows you to drag and drop to create your desired chart from 0, it's pretty intuitive. I didn't require to see any tutorial at all to learn how to use it, you can jump on from zero and start working with it.

I usually share it with my developers and they can write any comments on doubts directly on the chart and I can resolve it at the spot!

We use Lucidchart for laying out our wireboxes (a flow made with boxes of our interface), it’s a task that is required to be simple, easy to iterate, agile and easy to produce, and Lucidchart fulfills my need.

Other tools usually aren’t that approachable, mainly cause’ its interface [is] not very intuitive.

Being able to integrate Lucidchart in other applications it’s something amazing. I can share it with my developer easily, without them needing to know how to work with it.

Something I’m missing is a better integration with Confluence, it's hard to navigate in Lucidchart’s flows inside a confluence document.

In the end, Lucidcart is an amazing tool for creating flows in an easy and comfortable way, I recommend it 100%!

  • A ton of libraries, for making your charts
  • Clean and intuitive interface
  • Multi-integration in other apps (like Slack and Confluence)
  • I lost the library I was using, and I don't recall its name, its going to take a while to find it
  • Sometimes when you invite new users they end up in a loop of logging, they get a mail, the sign up, they get a mail to sign up, no idea why that happens...
  • In apps like Confluence navigating the chart its a really annoying task, I suppose it's more a Confluence thing.
  • Timesaving
  • Improve share documents
  • Low learning curve
This is a must, we develop video games, so we generate gdd in Confluence where we lay down all the technical information about our game followed by the chart of the systems we develop down below.

Another app I use with Lucidchard is Slack, where it keeps me notified about recent changes in my documents, and gives me easy access to them.
I haven't had any issue that requires support from Lucidchart, so I wouldn't know how it is, probably it's ok, the only thing I have doubts [about] is about the infinite loop of logging in with Lucid (something I said before) probably I should get in contact with Lucidchart the next time it happens.

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?


I’ve used Balsamiq, draw io, Google Slides and even [Adobe] Illustrator in the past, for the same use I give Lucidchart, they usually end up lacking in options to improve my general workflow, or they directly aren't software designed to fulfill that need (Like Illustration).

Also some of them lack the compatibility with Confluence something that I point before that is pretty crucial for my work.

If you need to make a lot of proposals, Lucidchart is a perfect tool for that.

If you are familiar with Adobe interface it's going to be easy to adapt to Lucidchart interface.

If you want to produce something more complex (like simulate a wireframe, or a prototype) Lucidchart lacks that kind of power to fulfill that need.
