Overall Satisfaction with Lucidspark
LucidSpark is a great way to manage long offsite meetings with multiple contributors. It's been a great piece of tech that enables us to have productive conversations while designing an output that inspires long-term roadmaps, strategy, and planning. It's easy to interact, easy to learn the system and create something that is both engaging, and exciting to use.
- Collaboration Tool.
- Engagement Tool.
- Quick demos that enable non-users to leverage the platform right away, vs a short orientation phase.
- Easier sharing so that users without licenses can vote and engage without signing up.
- Easier group movement of large packs of data and detail.
- Meeting effectiveness - we have been able to keep people engaged in our virtual environment while we might be suffering from fatigue or burnout.
- Meeting Engagement - it's been great to have a dynamic tool that creates several compelling moments of engagement with each other (voting, creation, movement).
- Increased Productivity - it's easier to plan long-term whiteboarding sessions with a freeform contribution on the tool; not as restricting as a ppt deck or document.
I think that the system could be a little easier to set up with users who either don't have a license or are new to the license. The system is not entirely intuitive and can take time. I think some kind of guided tutorial that centers on function - not something that is generic and applies to everyone, but instead, is specific to how the user is going to use it.
I did not use the system to integrate with Slack, Google Drive, or Lucidchart. This is a feature that I have not explored with the system as of yet. I could see this being useful - but to be honest, I most likely wouldn't use these integrations as much as I could.
This has been one of my first experiences leveraging an online virtual whiteboard. It has been a great experience that I'm suddenly trying to think of new ways to leverage the tool for meeting facilitation and engagement. I think real-time participation gives us the feel of engagement and collaboration.
I didn't leverage the online support or FAQs. I did use some of the tutorials and videos to understand how to leverage the voting mechanism. I think that the support could have been a bit better where you could get live tutorials based on the desired outcome. This would be really helpful.

I have not been a heavy user of Miro or other tools so I cannot compare the individual tools against one another. I think that LucidSpark is a good tool and does what I need it to in terms of collaboration, engagement, and productivity. I would recommend this tool to someone looking for a way to engage their teams.
The best way to use Lucidspark is for offsites, planning sessions, innovation, sessions that require and call for collaboration. While I haven't used this tool as much for the presentation, I could see it being a good way to present detail to an audience that doesn't require much input, though you'd be missing an opportunity to engage an audience. I do think that this is a semi-difficult tool to learn, so if you are using it for the first time with a large group of people - you need to make sure you've set it up so that it's fairly intuitive.
