Overall Satisfaction with Lucidchart

Designing is very intuitive, but navigating the other functions, like sharing and exporting, is not as easy.
We are using it to map out our IT systems. It is currently being used by just myself, and I have asked another colleague to use it to create a similar diagramming for a different application. It addresses internal communications. Being able to visually see the process will help our tech team understand, very effectively, how systems should talk to each other.
  • Suggesting which shape to use next
  • Displaying shapes in use so you can easily find the shape which is needed
  • Explaining what the shapes are often used for
  • It took me a while to find the feature to share with people that didn't have a Lucidchart account. The word "publish" was a little confusing.
  • Improved productivity - the tech team understands the overall objectives a lot better, so they are now implementing this into their work.
Haven't used the support yet.

Lucidchart is more intuitive, so using it for a big project meant it was much easier to do here, meaning less cognitive load.
Good for small projects using the free version. For bigger projects, you have to pay, but for a small start-up company paying per user for this platform may not be cost-effective as it may not be used every day. As a start-up, we struggle with documenting processes due to time. So I would only pay for one user and ask the rest of the team to do diagrams using the free version.
