Quip

Docs, tasks, & spreadsheet collaboration with built-in chat

4.65/5 (40 reviews)
8,693

Quip is a team collaboration solution which combines document and spreadsheet creation and editing with chat and commenting capabilities, to allow teams to communicate about tasks and projects directly while working on them.

Quip enables users to create and edit documents, spreadsheets, and checklists collaboratively in real time, through the ‘Smart Inbox’ interface, with the ability to filter and star documents to speed up searching. Document revisions are stored so users can track changes, and annotations can be added to spreadsheets and documents. Finished tasks can be checked off on the checklist, keeping all team members informed of which tasks have been completed.

Rather than communicating by email, users can chat directly within a document, with inbuilt 1:1 personal messaging and the ability to comment on any content. @mentions also allow users to direct teammates to individual spreadsheet cells, or insert items such as images and code into documents. User-controlled notifications keep team members updated on any messages or mentions.

Quip works across desktop and mobile, with native iOS and Android apps, and with offline functionality, users can work on documents on the go, with changes being updated whenever there is an internet connection.

So cozy and easy to use

12/07/2017

Pros

The most useful aspect of Quip is its simplicity. It's easy to comment and it's easy to change and see changes and revert to previous versions

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. It takes a long time to upload them.

Useful for keeping everyone on the same page

07/06/2017

being able to make 'to do' lists, view, update and share them constantly within the company as well as external companies and suppliers.

Pros

I like the fact that multiple people can see all information and edit without things getting lost. it also has some useful features.

Cons

its not particularly attractive, not a major concern but it just looks outdated. It would also benefit from a 'help' button being available for all users all the time.

Unlimited Free Trial

14/03/2017

Unlimited free trial and great for text-based collaboration

Pros

Quip allows you to try their platform for free as long as you need, so you can really figure out whether or not it works for your team before you invest in the paid version. Compared to other products that have a time-limited free trial, Quip offers a much better evaluation period.

Cons

The ability to upload images and PDFs is limited at best. It's easier to upload a photo album on Facebook and share it with your team than it is to do the same thing in Quip. Great for text based documents, however.

Fantastic for Small Project Management and Collaboration

22/02/2017

Quip provides unique ability to create, edit and share highly customized documents/spreadsheets. Quip doesn't have a structure to follow for project management, so it requires a lot of upfront time commitment and development. However, after creating the needed documents and templates, it is the perfect tool. Specifically, great to use for mind-mapping, checklists, embedded spreadsheets/tracking.

Pros

Integrates with Google Drive, version control, file attachment, collaboration, custom templates, slack integration, flexibility, permissions control, great interface, easy to use

Cons

No internal task delegation/planning features, no report building

eQUIP Yourself for Success

03/11/2016

I've spent a lot of time navigating the endless world of Google productivity tools and at times I'm met with more frustration than productivity, mostly related to scale and having a large number of contributors. Quip makes that easy with a sleek canvas feel and an easy-on-the-eyes way of organizing. Sometimes less is more and I've found that simple has boosted productivity for myself and my teams and collaboration is at an all-time high. The one drawback I have is somewhat of a challenge: when collaboration and comments spike there should be a better way to filter through the noise, as it can get a bit stifling keeping track of all the conversations. Thread/forum type implementation perhaps?

Pros

Sleek look, ease of use, organization

Cons

Filtering/presentation of comments/collaboration, lack of slide deck feature
