About Quip

Quip is a team collaboration solution which combines document and spreadsheet creation and editing with chat and commenting capabilities, to allow teams to communicate about tasks and projects directly while working on them.

Quip enables users to create and edit documents, spreadsheets, and checklists collaboratively in real time, through the ‘Smart Inbox’ interface, with the ability to filter and star documents to speed up searching. Document revisions are stored so users can track changes, and annotations can be added to spreadsheets and documents. Finished tasks can be checked off on the checklist, keeping all team members informed of which tasks have been completed.

Rather than communicating by email, users can chat directly within a document, with inbuilt 1:1 personal messaging and the ability to comment on any content. @mentions also allow users to direct teammates to individual spreadsheet cells, or insert items such as images and code into documents. User-controlled notifications keep team members updated on any messages or mentions.

Quip works across desktop and mobile, with native iOS and Android apps, and with offline functionality, users can work on documents on the go, with changes being updated whenever there is an internet connection.

    An amazing platform to track your ideas

    We use quip to track our updates, design documents etc and it has proven to be a really powerful platform for the same.

    Pros

    1. I love quip as its the only good version controlled platform for taking notes that I have found in my industry experience of over 5 years.
    2. Its easy to create public/private versions. I could easily create documents that are public (i.e. outside the firm) and private to me.
    3. It is so easy to mark your favorite folders and share it across teams.
    4. Its fast. I have found Google Docs to be a bit slower than quip.
    5. You could easily import the content into a wiki or a word document with all the formatting intact.
    6. You can create an excel sheet (or multiple sheets) in quip itself.
    7. Onboarding and gettting used to the platform is really easy.

    Cons

    1. It behaves odd when creating tables and adding pictures (like indentation sometimes screws up).
    2. If you are looking for a platform to create animated documents, quip might not be your friend. It supports basic data representation objects like tables, pictures, worksheets but if you want audio etc, you want to goto powerpoint.

    I am enjoying this tool, and Quip has managed to stand out in this heavily competitive field of online collaboration.

    Pros

    Quip UI is really smooth, and feels new! it has a good functionality to provide the revision history for the document, which I think is very useful. When multiple folks are simultaneously editing the same document, the revision history for each line provides a very nice view of who changed what.

    Additionally, Quip has a chat tool embedded in its UI. I use this often to communicate with other folks who are working on the same project.

    Cons

    I dont have a strong dislike for any of the features, but perhaps one point was it takes significant time for a new guy to get to to speed with the tool and understand all the intricate details.
    Perhaps the on boarding proceed can be better

    Great tool for quick notes and easy access but not a tool I'd recommend to use over Google Drive or Microsoft Office.

    Pros

    Quip is a great tool to use for your team when quickly brainstorming and jotting down ideas. It strips itself of unnecessary formatting/UI options and provides you a clean slate to work smarter.

    Cons

    While Quip is easy to use, using Quip as a main tool to create spreadsheets or documents is not something I recommend. Exporting a Quip spreadsheets to Excel will export all the information over but leaves you with a lot of manual formatting and editing and becomes unreliable when needing to export something on the fly. This could be fixed if the "Save to PDF" function worked properly, but alas, saving to a PDF does not allow you to format properly and will include the Header rows and columns into the PDF - thus not allowing you to send clean, concise information over to colleagues.

    Quip's An Alternative to Google Docs and Slack

    Reviewed on 2019/07/18

    I tested Quip as part of a team effort to find a collaborative tool that we could incorporate across the board. Over the 6 month period that I tested it, I found that while it was functional for the most part as a lot of things, it failed in key areas that we would need it to work including handling large spreadsheets, edit history and connectivity issues.

    However the price and slow functionality when it comes to bigger documents/spreadsheets leaves much to be desired and as such, it may not be ideal for anyone but bigger organizations that want to cut off multiple communication channels and document tools.

    Overall Quip is a good alternative to Slack & Google Apps. However it leaves some things to be desired in the looks and function department.

    Pros

    Quip is a great collaboration tool that is something similar to Slack, Google Docs and Google Sheets all wrapped up into one.

    My favorite feature is the collaboration tool which allows you to edit documents and discuss them in real time with other users. You can send messages to other users and Quip has a nice way of letting you know whether a user is online or offline. The messages can be sent to individuals and within a group chat setting.

    When commenting on spreadsheets, you can annotate cell by cell which is something helpful especially if you are reviewing spreadsheets with a lot of information.

    File management is a charm. You can easily upload shared documents to folders and limit who can see the documents as well as who can edit/view the documents.

    One gripe about collaboration apps that I have had in the past is the amount of notifications you get if you have multiple people working on documents/projects etc. Quip solves this by giving you the option to prioritize the notifications you want to this. You can also @ specific people which makes communication easier. Similar to Slack, there is an option to notify everyone with an @everyone option to send messages to a whole team.

    Quip integrates well with Salesforce, so if you are using Salesforce, this is a good option.

    Cons

    If you want to test Quip before deciding, you may not like the requirement for a work email.
    You need constant internet connectivity to make Quip work, if you find yourself in a place where there is no internet, you may be out of luck to use Quip.

    While Quip is good for communication, editing and collaborating on big spreadsheets slows the app down and you can find it slows down performance. You are better doing light to medium size documents/spreadsheets.

    When collaborating documents, versioning and edit history are important. It gets hard to revert to an older copy of a document and it can create some confusion if there are a lot of people looking at the same document.
