Overall Satisfaction with Lucidspark

We're using Lucidspark as a virtual whiteboard to help collaborate on ideas during our online meetings, as face-to-face meetings are not possible at the present time. We work together to capture ideas, visualizations, and key points in the same way as we would have with a traditional whiteboard.
  • Real-time collaboration--multiple people adding to the same workspace simultaneously
  • Various objects and assets available--from virtual post-its to drawing tools
  • Resizable canvass--the workspace can grow to be as large as practically needed
  • Navigation and panning around the workspace can be slightly clunky
  • Individual tools themselves (such as drawing tools) can feel somewhat basic
  • Use of the tool has definitely improved engagement during online meetings, resulting in better productivity
  • Reduced time cost in "writing up" afterwards, as text and images can be exported or even copied/pasted out
  • License costs compare favorably with some market alternatives
Lucidspark is generally easy to use, though some aspects aren't quite as intuitive as some people would like. This means useful features and shortcuts might be missed, as it's not immediately obvious they exist. The whiteboard metaphor is well presented though, and most people will be able to jump right in at a basic level.
We've not yet added integrations to our use of the boards; we're testing in isolation. A number of connectors, particularly to storage and comms tools, are potentially very useful to us in the future however.
Lucidspark does its basic job very well. We've had minimal uptake delay in meetings, as people are easily able to watch others use the board, learn, and jump straight in. This has led to getting down to work a fast and simple experience for most of our users.
We've not had to use Lucidspark support (which I guess is a positive statement) and so can't comment on this aspect.

Miro is an alternative product we evaluated. While there are pros and cons to each, we found Lucidspark to have less of a learning curve and be "friendlier" - which was most important to us and influenced our final decision. Pricing wasn't a huge consideration given the smaller number of initial users.

Lucidspark is extremely well suited to the use case which we've applied it to: as a replacement for a real whiteboard. Simultaneous editing and viewing makes it a great collaboration tool.

Lucidspark is less suited to advanced or niche work, such as high quality drawings or long document production, as its functionality is wide, not deep.
