Pros

I loved the finish of the design, and the fact that they had the gridlines to guide placement. Alignment of the shapes were so easy, and loved how customizable it was.

VS

Vaishnavi S.

Very easy to use with excellent collaborative features. Nice bright and modern UI.

AB

Arun B.

This was a great product if you're looking for something to do very simple flows and charts in. Price point is great, and the free version still allows to use most features.

Lisa T.

Pros

This is super user-friendly and easy to use and share documents and flowcharts with your entire team. Just started using it with a vendor and quite impressed.

HE

Henry E.

Lucidchart is definitely one of the best diagramming software out there and it is very beginner friendly. This is shown in the fact that 99% of the Fortune 500 companies use LucidChart.

DW

Daniel W.

Overall I am pleased with my experience with Lucidchart and glad I found it in my search to create more robust graphics.

Cons

Lack of features advertised would be included. Lack of tutorials in the software.

VL

Victoria L.

Sometimes the lines between connections didn’t land where I wanted them or changed shape and that was frustrating.

EB

Erika B.

Occasionally, when I'd try to "tweak" a little place on my project it would mess up the whole thing.

LF

LoRisa F.

Cons

The inability to select multiple objects and drag around as you would expect is annoying. The auto-resize when insert into documents and update is pathetic.

MR

Marty R.

The object limit on the free version seems way too low. Sometimes it's hard to register a click on the right element, but no worse than any others.

SA

Samer A.

The number of symbols was limited at first, but that seems to be increasing. Page layout can be confusing until you get used to how the product handles.

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

Pros

Easy to use and functional. Met all my needs and then some. Nice to be able to easily zoom in and out while creating flow charts.

LucidChart is one of my absolute favorite products to use!

Reviewed 3 years ago

Much faster engineering times of database updates.

Pros

I love so much about it that it is hard to pick one thing. 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.

Lucidchart

Simple tool for making diagrams

Reviewed a year ago

Lucidchart is a great tool for creating diagrams. Creating a BPMN diagram or ArchiMate diagram is no problem. You can create anything you need, Lucidchart is very versatile.

Pros

Lucidchart is very easy to use if you need to create diagrams. You can create a large variety of diagrams. The templates are great, so you don't have to start from scratch. Organising documents is easy, you can simply order your diagrams with folders and share them with others. Collaboration with other users works perfectly!

Cons

The number of elements you can create with the free plan is limited. This could be expanded. It may not always be the best option to switch to a paid option if you just want to create a few diagrams. However, if you need to create a lot more diagrams, the paid option is definitely worth considering.

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.

Pros

The most impactful feature is that it is easy to learn and use, and can be integrated with different services. One can easily use the templates provided by it.

Not many complaints for now as I found it supportive. But, some times drawing and connecting lines gets cluttered.

Great Alternative to Visio

Reviewed 4 years ago
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. It has a large number of different templates that you can use. And it is easy to use through drag and drop. And most importantly, it's web-based so that you can use it from anywhere and share with anyone with ease.

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

Reviewed 5 years ago

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

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. It's very easy to create just about anything you would do in Visio or other similar software.

Cons

The only downside I have found so far is the forward engineering scripts created from your ER diagrams. Certain objects that you can create in the ERD (relationships, etc..) simply did not get exported to the MySQL scripts.

Overall Lucidchart helps us to visualize the the project workflows and make it easier for our clients understand them.

Pros

Lucidchart is a great tool for creating diagrams for all process and workflows on an organization. We rely on Lucidchart to create diagrams on our data flows for our various client projects. This is a great tool for understanding the work flows and process in a project. Also it is helpful for clients to understand the work process by seeing just the diagram.

Cons

There are difficult in creating complex diagrams as there is no proper docs available.
