Perfect tool for great diagrams

08/12/2016

Smartdraw is an amazing and easy to use tool to build professional diagrams and workflow schematics. I have used Visio and Smartdraw but find Smartdraw easier to use.

Exactly what I was looking for

18/10/2016

As an HR professional, I wanted a tool to create organizational charts that made good looking charts and was easy to use. It has a small learning curve, but after that I was able to create org charts easily. I then started using it for flow charts which is just as easy.

Hard to work, poor customer service.

25/05/2016

Couldn't make it do what it said, and customer service could not explain or help. Just wanted a simple deck plan and it would not do it.

Love the mind mapping feature!

29/12/2011

I've been using SmartDraw for about two months as a tool to help manage my projects. What I love about SmartDraw is the Mind Mapping feature, which allows me to create tasks in a visually friendly way that mimics brainstorming. It's been very helpful to me when starting out a project. I also really like the way we can add owners to each task in the same view. And the best part is, the information will get transferred to a Gantt chart or a timeline with the click of a button. Once you've filled in the details, you can push the information to a powerpoint slide to share with key stakeholders, again, with just a click of a button. There are many more features within SmartDraw that I am intrigued about but haven't had the opportunity to explore yet. I plan on playing with SmartDraw more once my current projects slow down.

Pros

Well organized and very easy to move data to other Microsoft Office applications (including Microsoft Project) or Adobe .pdf. There are also some great graphics and geographic maps in the library for use with presentations, flyers, floorplans, etc.

Cons

In the Gantt chart, there is a limited number of columns that can be used.
