Good experience - helped me create process charts all throughout college and in my current job

2017-09-22

More organization and clarity in process creation and improvement in our organization

Pros

Nice to be able to easily zoom in and out while creating flow charts.

Cons

I wish there were more shortcuts to creating flow charts so I could create them more efficiently and quickly.

LucidChart is one of my absolute favorite products to use!

2018-07-10

Much faster engineering times of database updates.

Pros

I mostly use Lucidchart for ERD's and love the fact you can have the SQL script generated off the ERD that you create. It makes life a whole lot easier.

Cons

I wish that you could have the SQL script create the foreign key constraints on the newly created tables & columns.

Well designed tool

2018-05-31

More sophisticated way of creating visualizations

Pros

The biggest plus is the ability to use other products (such as supporting Visio files). I also appreciate the option to export or use the web interface.

Cons

It took me a while to discover which type of visualization worked best for my projects (flowchart vs. wireframe, etc.).

Great Alternative to Visio

2018-03-31

Pros

For anyone who needs to create flow charts or process flows, but finds that PowerPoint doesn't give you enough choice (but you don't want the complex tools like Visio), LucidChart is the perfect fit.

Cons

While it is beneficial to have the multiple levels/folders for storing documents created in LucidChart, I do find that it can be complex to search and find for things you have created.

University usage

2016-11-23

I have used Lucid Chart at 2 different universities in Utah and the customer service varied with both schools. It was really low and almost offensive at Weber State University and really productive and great at University of Utah. I do like how clean the interface looks and it is user friendly. I don't like the fact that the lines do not connect automatically in the graph maker. It makes you make another line on top of the line already there and usually places the new line RIGHT NEXT TO the old line instead of on top of it or connecting it.

Pros

Simplicty. Final interface is really clean.

Cons

lines and attention to detail in programs when creating charts and lines

Beautiful tool to learn UML

2016-11-23

Students at our university learn UML with LucidChart. The tools increases the learning rate of the students, because LucidChart is an intuitive tool: Student do not need to put effort to learn the tool. Students only need to focus at UML.

Pros

1. Very intuitive tool 2. Works on the internet (also a con) 3. You can make every kind of diagram

Cons

I do not understand how to create more than one class in the tool.

Easy collaborative charts

2019-03-26

I've used Lucidchart to create diagrams describing service infrastructure, work flow, conceptual database diagrams and found it very capable and easy to use.

Pros

Lucidchart came with a vast array of templates and object to easily create anything network design, work flow, cloud infrastructure and more.

Cons

The only downside I have found so far is the forward engineering scripts created from your ER diagrams.

Lucidchart seems like a good product

2016-11-22

I haven't worked with Lucidchart a ton yet. I have mainly been a viewer of charts, but I like the collaboration functionality and it seems easy to use so far.

Pros

I really like how easy it is to collaborate. It is akin to google docs in that way. Lucidcharts looks very clean and slick and I have enjoyed using it so far.

Cons

This isn't really a con on Lucidcharts so much as it's a con of creating diagrams, creating diagrams isn't my favorite thing to do.

Very Good Diagramming Tool

2019-04-05

Lucidchart is a tool for diagramming, creating charts (for example, UML) and visual design.

Pros

Lucidchart is intuitive and easy to use. You can become productive very fast with this tool, as most of the features are self-explanatory.

Cons

There is no free tier, even though most of the competitors have a completely free option.

I am satisfied with my Lucidchart experience.

2018-12-23

I use Lucidchart primarily for creating wireframes and mapping software architectural designs.

Pros

Lucidchart provides me with a library of images and native User interface components.I find it easy to use because of its intuitive “drag and drop” functionality.Integrates with my Google Drive,letting me backup all of my diagrams and mapping projects for easy future access.

Cons

On a few occasions,I have lost work done on projects due to Lucidchart crashing unexpectedly.This happened with large sized mapping tasks.

Really neat workflow system

2019-04-17

We use it to create workflows for customers and it's really helpful.

Pros

I had never used this before or anything like this. It works really well to have multiple tabs showing multiple workflows. You can design anything from Org Charts to customer workflows and the flow of everything is really easy to follow.

Cons

The charts themselves look great but it can be a bit difficult to learn how to do everything. Once you get the hang of it, it's really functional but there are so many options so if you're not used to it, it takes a bit.
