First time using Quip, easy to use and adaptable

2019-07-29

Ones stop Project Management and collaboration tool.

Pros

We're using Quip for project managing our app launch through a vendor and it is fairly easy to use and is adaptable to different needs from documenting to tracking progress of the project via a drag and drop Kaban board.

Cons

It is a little too fluid in terms of organization.

Good documentation collaboration tool

2021-09-12

It's a good documentation collaboration tool that supports multiple file types.

Pros

And the email notifications on changes make it easy to be in the know about whats going on.

Finding the version control of the quip documentation has been a struggle for me at times.

Great App to use

2019-01-06

Yes, I use quip personally and loves it.

Pros

Quip is very user-friendly from the web version, I like the use of the apps to docs or calendar features.

Cons

Quip does not carry any reporting building features, it could also use some approval processes for project management.

Quit passing email and documents around!

2016-08-18

It is a live document centered experience with the ability to comment, discuss, and update to drive to agreed upon results.

Pros

VERY intuitive interface. My staff is resistant to change, and they picked up on this software immediately.

Cons

It would be great to tie in some sort of task management, e.g. something with due dates that alert you.

Quip Review

2020-07-07

I prefer other collaboration tools, but if you just need to share a large file or collaborate with a few other people, it does the job.

Pros

It's great for real-time editing, you can see the history of the document edits and who made each change, and it's easy to organize in folders and share with a specific group of people with specified permissions. Since it's cloud-based, I like using it for collaboration and sharing large files.

Cons

I think the UI is missing basic functionality.

The best cloud based online collaborative writing tool

2016-11-01

Google Docs is probably one of the most well known cloud based document editors that facilitates collaboration between team members.

Pros

It's "stupid easy" to invite people to collaborate on a document. Comments are a breeze.

Cons

I wish that reviewing, version control, and security were stronger.

Try it out! It's so easy. This might not be the tool of choice for a large org with very detailed processes, but it is probably perfect for your team to get together (online) to write something.

Covers your needs for software development

2020-10-12

You can add comments and have version control.

Pros

You also have to-do tasks, can set the task owners and the deadlines, which is great for collaboration. You can add spreadsheets for metrics.

Cons

I think Quip has a lot of room to grow in terms of spreadsheet functionalities. It is enough for me for standard operations, but I'm guessing people who work with Excel / Google Sheets on a daily basis would find it hard to migrate to Quip completely.

Quip a good alternative to Google product offerings

2020-02-09

For collaborative document sharing, editing and creation, Quip is a solid choice especially if you rely on integration with Salesforce data.

Pros

My favorite feature of Quip is the tight integration with Salesforce CRM, allowing easy importing and viewing of Salesforce data directly in your Quip documents and sheets.

Cons

Quip seems like a work-in-progress, with many new versions being released on a weekly basis, always playing catch-up with Google Docs/Sheets and Microsoft Office 365.

Quip - a super nice collaboration tool

2018-10-17

To be simple, we really like this easy to use collaboration tool.

Pros

"Word", "Excel", "Powerpoint" lite versions, so easy to use, whatever you want.

Cons

Logic of files arrangement a bit confusing.

Quip review

2018-09-10

In my experience, I've really enjoyed using Quip to easily house documents and spreadsheets with a friendly and easy to use interface.

Pros

Often times, my team would have to share multiple versions of the same spreadsheet, but with Quip, you can see real-time updates from colleagues and communicate all within the app.

Cons

While it is great for collaboration, the tool becomes glitchy when it contains a large amount of data.

Perfect for quick notes

2020-06-24

Great tool for quick notes and easy access but not a tool I'd recommend to use over Google Drive or Microsoft Office.

Pros

It strips itself of unnecessary formatting/UI options and provides you a clean slate to work smarter.

Cons

While Quip is easy to use, using Quip as a main tool to create spreadsheets or documents is not something I recommend. Exporting a Quip spreadsheets to Excel will export all the information over but leaves you with a lot of manual formatting and editing and becomes unreliable when needing to export something on the fly.

Equipped with Quip!

2020-03-17

We use quip to share files among members and teams in our organization and I love how we could easily update and access them from anywhere especially on the mobile as well, it makes collaboration way too easy.

Pros

The design and layout is superb, I specifically love how you can folders visually and it is attractive.

Cons

Not all file types are supported like scripts, I would have to just upload it as a textfile with the scripts if I wanted it on quip.

A fantastic collaboration tool for medium to large sized teams

2021-11-12

The sleek and responsive UI garners a much better feeling when using the product over others such as the Google suite.

Pros

Able to export documents into their appropriate formats for local download if necessary.

Cons

It would be nice if in addition to having preset formatting options, we had control over being able to completely customize formatting.

Quip combines MS Office or G-Suite into one app

2020-04-10

Quip was fine, but it is redundant to both MS Office and/or G-Suite and there is no need for all of these. It was fine, but the ability to have different doc types was alright, but not that needed.

Pros

It was also great to document sharing across multiple parties and the related and needed tracking or changes, comments, notes, etc.

Cons

The storage / saving and file structure was odd, and the ability to create secure directories vs sharing with everyone was not always clear.

Easy to use, great for collaborating, aimed at younger professionals

2017-12-12

Collaboration, simple cloud-based tool, integration with Salesforce

Pros

I like that two people can be simultaneously working on a document without a problem.

Cons

Yet, one apparently "necessary" feature is that you can add an emoji or animated meme to your comments within a document.

Worked well for the experienced, new users struggled

2018-03-22

Offered a baseline as a new product to start a new project team in a "new to all" environment

Pros

Having used numerous web based team management / task management toolsets, I enjoyed the fluidity of quip, as it was very interpretuve to my style.

Cons

The same things that I liked were hard for others to embrace as tbey were more used to task driven platforms than collaboration driven platforms

Pretty rad way to manage documents across teams big and small

2018-05-01

Quip is a great solution for remote teams and collaborators for all kinds of projects and workflows.

Pros

I especially like the user management features for bringing in collaborators and other outside partners to work on particular documents.

Cons

Quip is great, but given the competitors out there, it's a little expensive. This is the one thing I would change about Quip.

Best for collaboration and communication

2016-07-11

Using Quip for creating documents within the team, talk about it and use the chat instead of sending emails back and forth.

Pros

Easy to use, nice UI, good feature set

Cons

PDFs and other formats could be much better. Just import the files without changing them.

Solid Documentation Tool within Salesforce suite

2019-02-18

Create and share documentation, lists, boards.

Pros

Great functionalities for sharing and tagging other users, tagging dates and times to auto-generate reminders, and integrate in-document features like charts, visualizations, lists, and boards.

Cons

Workflow for accessing files and folders is not as intuitive and organized, compared to typical local drives or even google drive for example.

I built a custom reporting tool without being a programmer.

2018-05-04

I was up to produce a highly functional spreadsheet to use as a reporting tool for my upstream management.

Pros

The interface is clean and user-friendly.

Cons

The embedded spreadsheet application has many advanced features. The Quip spreadsheet has more bells and whistles than I could figure out in one sitting. Quip's tutorals and customer service staff guided and coached me through the rough spots.

An amazing platform to track your ideas

2019-03-25

We use quip to track our updates, design documents etc and it has proven to be a really powerful platform for the same.

Pros

You could easily import the content into a wiki or a word document with all the formatting intact. 6.

Cons

If you are looking for a platform to create animated documents, quip might not be your friend.

Quip is in Tough Territory

2019-02-08

Pros

Great features that allow for collaboration and communication across documents.

Cons

When the documents or content within a document becomes extensive, it isn't as easy to navigate to a specific piece of content. Especially if someone has named you in the document--no intuitive way to search document.
