Coggle overview

What is Coggle?

Coggle is a collaborative data visualization platform for creating mind maps and flow charts to display complex information, such as processes, algorithms, and systems. The software offers real-time collaboration, drag-and-drop image uploads, version management, flow loops and branches, and more.

With Coggle, users can create an unlimited number of flow charts and mind maps with any level of complexity. A range of shape types are included, and users can control line paths and styles, text alignment, and branching. Floating text and images can be added to annotate maps, and images can be added directly to diagrams from users’ devices or from the built-in image and icon library. Diagrams can be created with multiple starting points to map several related topics within a single workspace.

Coggle’s real-time collaboration functionality allows multiple users to simultaneously work on the same diagram. All changes are saved and users can revert to any previous version by making a copy of the diagram from a specific point in time. With secret links, anyone can be invited to collaborate on diagrams without needing to create an account or log in.

Shareable Mindmaps for Life use and Work

Used daily for 1-2 years

Thankful to have found this modern mind mapping app online.

Pros
I have always been a fan of organizing my brain using Mind maps (Thanks!). I have used several native applications using my PC and Mac for sever years. Now, I'm very happy to have found Coggle. All the features that I use from my native apps are now accessible to me via the Web Browser using any device. Now I can even use my smartphone to create or edit my mind maps. Another feature that I like is the ability to share mind maps to other Google users. First, all my work gets automatically backed up via my Google account, and then i can also share the mind map to my colleagues or virtually anyone with a Google account. Collaboration and real-time updates has never been so easy and hassle free.

Cons
Some of my colleagues tell me that Coggle can get clunky or feel slow to respond when the mind map we were working on gets too big. I personally have. It experienced this and it may be due to their other running apps or hardware capabilities. I mention it here because it somehow affects our collaborative work. But other than that, I'm very pleased with Coggle.

Mindmapping our brains

Pros
I use mindmaps for brainstorming sessions for business analysis and project management. Coggle is my favorite service to use! First of all, it works seamlessly with Google services, and so covers our sign-on and team drive integration. Sharing files is a no brainer because it so easy and its already saved/shared to the team via GTDrive. The coolness factor and user experience is what made it click for the team. It just looks so cool (its animation of branch sprouting, the options loop, and esp its color scheme!). Simple and intuitive to use. We use Coggle for collaborative work on the same mindmap (within the same war room in the office or together with those working from home).

Cons
Given that its a web app, it can't compare to the full-featured native apps available out there (e.g., themes, images, presentation, brainstorming mode). I find it still a bit difficult or cumbersome to use for presentations esp for big mindmaps, hard to collapse/focus branches.

I have used it since last year to sketch four academic articles. It is an initial phase of my writing, where I try to put all my ideas into a document. Now, with Coggle, this document is visual and interactive, because I can trace links between diagrams and parts of the "map".

Pros
-In the beginning, it seems like a difficult tool to use, but it is fairly easy. It did not take more than 10 minutes to get used to Coggle dynamics. -This software has allowed structuring my academic articles much better. I have even created a stage for every article I write called "Coggling"; it comes before drafting. It helps me clarify the big picture of my ideas.

Cons
-While it is good for some articles, it is not the proper methodology for others. This is not a defect, just a limitation for me. -I don't like that much how to collaborate between two persons using Coggle.

Great fun, great for brainstorming and organising your thoughts.

Pros
A creative equivalent of a mind map, whiteboard and power point. Great for visualising your ideas and mind mapping.

Cons
Maps created within a free account are public, which is not great. Apart from that the tool is great.

Easy way to record my thoughts; an organized presentation for clients; looks great; very fast UI; creating mind maps helps us organize our ideas for future products

Pros
I love the ease of use and quick user experience. Coggle rarely lags and is super fast when I need to quickly map my thoughts. I also appreciate the keyboard shortcuts which make this even more true. I am really impressed with the functionality as a whole. I've tried creating simple mind maps for my clients and they are always very impressed - it's helpful for them to see things visually. This alone has made the software worth it!

Cons
I wish they made it easier to customize a mind map....made it more free to write floating text or notes on the side of the mind map. Things are restricted within the format of the map you're building, but I'd like to be able to add disconnected pieces. The keyboard shortcuts are a little convoluted; I'd love if they made the shortcuts easier to use and remember.
