These guys GET IT.

2015-09-16

I've loved it from the get-go, and as time has gone on they have included more features that I didn't even realize I would need but now use (customization tools, integration tools etc).

Pros

Easy to use - Drag & Drop!

Cons

It costs - though it's low, there isn't a free version (other than a 30 day trial). There are a lot of free sitemap builders available...but as with anything, you get what you pay for.

I've used SlickPlan since its infancy

2015-01-22

The Slickplan team are real professionals.

Pros

Build large, complex architectures quickly and easily. Drag and drop functions are smooth, fast and efficient.

Cons

None, you're planning a website architecture. It does that well. Being in the cloud software industry myself, I understand I could dream up all the features I wish a product would have. The Slickplan team will record and later consider that feedback.

Decent sitemap tool, does its job - could be more user friendly though.

2017-08-09

Basic sitemap creation and export ability.

Pros

Slickplan is great because it's free and allows me to create basic sitemaps and export them via pdf.

Cons

The UI isn't very intuitive, and it's difficult to drag and reorder items.

Great app - We use it with 100's of K12 schools and colleges across the country

Our group uses Slickplan as a key tool with our CMS platform Campus Suite.

Pros

Wordpress plugin makes Wordpress site layouts a snap. Visualizing a site map and structure for SEO and inbound marketing flow is painless.

Cons

Slickplan is designed to manage the concept, changes, and the overall team interaction to plan, modify, or deploy a website.

Create easy design outlines

Pros

Early in a redesign process, the tool has helped outline navigational elements.

super easy and quick tool for creating workflows and website structure outlines

2018-03-11

Pros

It's super simple to use and the drag and drop type of format makes it very quick to update.

Cons

I wish there were more themes for different looks so you could make them more custom looking instead of the same over and over.

Thank you for the glowing review. We have worked very hard to make it as easy as possible to use without compromising powerful features. I did want to point out to you we have a variety of styling options for your sitemap. We've created a video here on YouTUbe to show you all the different ways you can customize the look of a sitemap project: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QBKNRr7gisQ

A fantastically easy site plan builder with some odd default option selection.

2018-07-18

Pros

I feel quite certain that with a few minutes of playing around with it, anyone could use Slickplan and end up with a perfectly presentable site plan in a reasonable time frame.

Cons

Really all I can think of is that while the default options aren't bad, I would maybe think about reordering them based on public frequency of use

We've been able to develop some attractive and functional site maps through Slickplan

2018-05-19

Create sitemaps for free in the first instance which allow you to map out development with clients.

Pros

It's a useful tool for putting together initial site maps for clients in the early phases of development.

Cons

We found some limitations with the level of access we have with not being able to implement all the functionality on the site map that we would like.

It's been a great tool for our digital creative agency

2015-01-20

Next was version control. Keeping track of the back and forth with clients and changes to a document that is moving between a lot of people really struggled to keep everything organized.

Pros

Ease of use (clients understand how to use it without ruining everything, lol) Autosaves changes that are made to the site Version control Price is great Good customer support Consistent updates to improve the functionality

Cons

Don't have any yet

Easy Sitemap creation

2018-08-04

Pros

How easy the software is to use and once the sitemap has been generated we send these over to our clients and they comment how easy it is to understand the sitemap layout compared to previous examples they have been shown.

Cons

Nothing the software is easy to use and very intuitive.

Great for Teams Collaborating on a New UX

2019-09-01

We used to do sitemaps manually in PowerPoint but this is 100% better and the price point is reasonable.

Pros

My top-rated feature is ease-of-use.

Cons

As a marketing agency, I wish there was an option to have separate views for each client. Yes, I realize I could set up a new account for each client but that gets cumbersome.

Great simple online application that is over priced

2016-07-26

I love that they put the site map and diagram user flows together. Was happy to purchase it until I found out that I had to pay 3x's as much to get the diagrams with the sitemaps. Then, I found out the hard way there is no support, just a knowledge base. For something that expensive, I would expect to be able to call when I have a problem.

Pros

- Sitemaps with diagram - Easy to use - The ability to add comments and photos, etc.

Cons

- Couldn't get co-workers to contribute, they seemed to think it was too difficult, even though I thought it was pretty easy. - To get diagrams with the sitemap you have to pay 3 x's as much

Recommendations to others considering Slickplan

Make sure you understand the pricing plan before you invest too much time using the tool. After the 30 days, you pay or they delete everything.

For Basic sitemapping

2017-10-04

Pros

It was pretty quick and easy to use.

Cons

It was fine for our internal purposes but when we handed it off to our development team they were confused by it and not all that impressed. There are not a LOT of features or at least at the plan level that we were willing to pay for.
