I like the way to create minimalistic diagrams with entire icons, so this software allow my creavity

2018-07-06

save time making diagrams with touch minimalistic.

Pros

It have a lot icons, from cloud, servers, persons to shapes and allow to drag and drop fast without install additional software.

Cons

i cant create or add custom icons, so i need to mix more of 2 icons to create new meanings like server with cloud of server with firewall.

add detailed diagrams to your confluence documents

2019-04-19

useful for creating documentation details.

Pros

Integration with Atlassian Confluence to empower a user to explain a service or process workflow. Similar to Visio, but simpler. Allows revision control.

Cons

Some layouts are difficult to get just right. Snap to grid is not easy to use the first time. Web application means work can get lost if the page is accidentally closed or refreshed.

The accessible flowchart application designed with ease of use in mind

2018-05-01

Helps me create flowcharts to visualize complex processes and relationships

Pros

It's very easy to use. If you can use a word processor, you can use Gliffy. Plus, there is a free version so that if you don't find yourself frequently making flowcharts but occasionally have something that really just needs one to help visualize it, you don't have to be a trained user in expensive software to be able to make a simple flowchart. There are many different styling options, and it has all the basic flowchart options that you need to make a variety of different types.

Cons

I can't really think of anything negative to say about Gliffy, it's a joy to use and I've never really encountered any issues using it.

I use Gliffy to create process flow charts as well as organization charts.

2018-04-23

I was able to create very attractive and professional-looking graphics for client presentations.

Pros

I haven't had another software yet that makes it so easy to create flow charts.

Cons

Honestly there is nothing I don't like about this software. I was using the free version so I couldn't save as many of my templates as I'd have liked to, but that of course has nothing to do with the software itself.

Flowcharts / Diagrams can be created easily and able to attached to Confluence which is the place to store documentations.

Pros

Different types of diagram can be created easily.

Cons

Free account is very limited. Google drive integration is only limited to business team account. Export to Visio format is a headache.

Best Visio Alternative

2018-04-24

Pros

This online software replaced Visio permanently as a diagramming tool and for creating org charts.

Cons

The free plan includes 5 diagrams only but I can't see it listed on their website anymore. Paid plans are a good deal compared to the hundreds for Visio.

It's a great tool for flow charts and process flow diagrams

2018-04-24

Using this to create process flow diagrams to communicate flows in the product to business users who would otherwise have a hard time understanding the different workflows is a huge benefit for us.

Pros

It suits very well to flow charts and process flow diagrams. It has most of the elements that we need as ready drag and drop elements and it's great at alignments, flow arrows, etc. I'v build complex flow diagrams and the tool works very well for that

Cons

It seems very limited to strictly flow charts of process flow diagrams. It's very hard to make other kinds of diagrams or mockups. In that way, it is quite limited.

Easy diagraming tool

2019-03-15

We use it in integration with confluence and is super useful

Pros

Gliffy has a very wide variety of shapes and they are very well organized

Cons

I don't like that every time you click "save" button it creates a new version of the diagram even if the diagram had no changes at all, yo can end up with several versions that are exactly the same

Pros

Gliffy is a superb tool for creating quality looking, professional drawings, flowcharts and diagrams.

Cons

Great tool, but I think it can seem quite limited the amount of stuff you can do with objects. Also there is a limitation on the types of color combinations that one can use.

Very strong diagram tool right in Confluence!

2018-02-19

Pros

Very easy to use and creates awesome diagrams without having to install software on each users workstation.

Cons

Recent cost increase is hard to swallow, I think it's doubled! Still not as good as Visio or SmartDraw as a complete alternative, however for in browser it can't be beat.

My go-to for all flow diagrams

2018-08-27

Pros

It has just about everything for creating diagrams - flowcharts, floorplans, electrical diagrams, rack diagrams e.t.c.

Cons

Bug!!! Something does not like Google Chrome. Usually this is fixed on the next release of either Chrome, Gliffy plugin or Confluence. Does not cause problems, just an annoying pop up to report the issue.

UML made simple

2018-04-04

Pros

Gliffy works great if you need to create a diagram quickly.

Cons

I wish the chart looked more stylish and modern. Besides, it would be great if you could group the objects and manage them together as one group.

Excellent application for creating process flowcharts

2018-11-12

Pros

Gliffy is easy to use and has all basic features needed to create flowcharts.

Cons

Though there's a free version, I don't think that's adequate for my needs. That means paying a monthly fee to use the paid version. And it's not really cheap, especially for individual users.

Almost perfect

2017-09-07

Pros

This software is a million times better than any Visio or other product when you want to create any type of diagrams.

Cons

I primarily use the free version of this software and they do not have very many icon types that are available by default. I know you can import any image you want, but it would be nice if they had more icons/symbols available. Specifically related to networking technology, etc.

I would like the see a data-driven model allowing me to have live diagrams that pull from outside databases.
