    Pros
    Quip has great integration, it's a great platform for project management and customer service is great.
    Quip is a great tool to use for your team when quickly brainstorming and jotting down ideas. It strips itself of unnecessary formatting/UI options and provides you a clean slate to work smarter.
    Beautiful UI design and user friendly. Import export functionalities are really good.
    Cons
    The only small complaint I have is that the text formatting controls are a bit limited. The other problem is how Quip doesn't work well with PDF's.
    There is often latency issues that we run and some of the syncs are not done properly. It has some problem with commenting.
    Some of the features can be hard to locate when switching over from other comparable platforms. Other than that there isn't too much to complain about.

    Quip Review

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    It's a great tool to keep all the documents organized, structured and collaborate on any of the docs with the team. I think our team became so much more productive after we started using it.

    Pros

    I love seeing how organized and most importantly easy to maintain all the docs in the company and departments. I think this is what makes Quip different: it's often easy to start using some service that meets the same purpose but it becomes a mess in a few months. Absolutely happy how it worked for our company with Quip. It was also a big help to find everything I needed when I joined the company.

    Cons

    I would love Spreadsheets which you can create in Quip to have more functionality, sometimes I need to use other tools and just link to them since I can't achieve the same with the Spreadsheets in Quip.

    Quip as a great collaboration and organizing tool

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    I enjoy working with Quip as it is very easy to use and it has a lot of features and tools not only for time management, project planning it is also very helpful for online collaboration.

    Pros

    Quip is very easy to use and navigate within the software. Basically, it offers you a never-ending list for your notes (very similar to OneNote for example). You can style these notes with basic formatting similar to MS Word: underline and strikethrough words, make them bold, or change them into italics. You can also choose the size of the words but this is a bit limited. The best thing about Quip...

    Cons

    The text you are writing is always centered way too much on the page meaning there will be a lot of unused space around your text.

    Why, Why and Why?

    Reviewed 5 years ago

    I am continuously asking 'why does it do that'? The UI does not behave as expected, it is inconsistent and much of what I produce is achieved through trial-and-error (admittedly, I have not had training in Quip, maybe a training course might help to explain some of my Whys). Examples: Selecting text bottom up produces a different result to selecting text from the top down. Only 1 comment per sentence,...

    Pros

    Short learning curve. Easy to enter text and pictures. Keeps a history of changes. Organize content by folders. You can chat!

    Cons

    Very few features. UI is missing standard functionality. So much wasted white-space. Difficult to navigate and organize because there is no folder structure view. Chat feature does not appear to be related to Quip. (If I want to chat in Quip, I want it to be about specific content, not about the weather or some other totally unrelated topic.)

    Cheap Solution for Team Collaboration

    Reviewed a year ago

    Overall experience was great. It was easy and smooth.

    Pros

    Quick Setup, easy interface, combines team messaging with collaborative document creation and editing tools, cheap plans compared to its competitors. Also supported by Zapier.

    Cons

    Limited API, limited storage on free accounts, interface could be more polished and not that much strong as other competitors.

    All in one platform to manage the entire documents and other tools in a single platform

    Reviewed 5 years ago

    We have increased the productivity of our employees and thus our core goal of high productivity is achieved.

    Pros

    We really like Quip the way it is built as the platform itself acts as a source to maintiain all the tools like docs, chat etc. in this single app itself. Quip is the best way to manage all the different tabs under one window. The major hike is with the single window system where all the needed plugins are added and can be managed. Quip is the one and only platform to simplify the user burden of maintaining multiple apps and multiple windows.

    Cons

    The UI is very hard to understand at the first time and for newcomers.
