Overall Satisfaction with Lucidspark

I have been using LucidChart for a number of years both for my own business and with clients. It has been an incredible way to help quickly get to the really-reallys through visualization and collaboration. Enter Lucidspark. While I love the level of detail and complexity that LucidChart offers, I don't always need all of the bells and whistles. In fact, for rapid concepting or prototyping, they get in the way. LucidSpark offers the structure and tools that I need in a very simple, stripped-down framework. I see myself using this tool for years to come with clients as a way to build alignment quickly and clearly.
  • Stripped-down features
  • Ease of use
  • Great beginner templates
  • Some templates not available
  • I'd like more colors
  • Time savings
  • Increased productivity
  • Happy clients
The product is easy to use. Period. I consider myself a fluent LucidChart user, so the transition was incredibly easy.
I have yet to use any of the integrations but am eager to begin. I'm especially interested in the Slack and Google Drive integrations but am also interested in potential crossovers with tools like InVisionApp.
So far, it has been very reliable and I haven't noticed any issues when using it with colleagues in real time.
I have yet to need to use support.

Lucidspark was an easy choice given how familiar I was with LucidChart. I also like Jamboard, but it doesn't feel as professional to me.
Lucidspark is perfect for getting ballpark ideas into a framework that can be further refined--simple prototyping or storyboarding regarding perfect use cases. I would recommend that small teams try it as a replacement for whiteboard sessions, particularly during these times when remote work is the norm. I would not use it for advanced process definition or logical frameworks.
