Lucidchart is a spectacular tool, which has grown through its own concept, aimed at streamlining the process of creating ideas. In general, diagramming in different areas or specialties is very well received by engineers, designers, administrative staff, and managers, and its application is very wide, so it becomes a great technical support to make our processes flow more quickly.

Pros

Its interactive and agile design is one of its greatest advantages since it does not require at all to spend time learning to diagram, work collaboratively or use the tool's functionalities. It has a high degree of usability and allows us to make almost any diagram, among them we can mention: UML diagram, iPhone/android mockups, workflow diagram, flowchart, org chart, data flow, kanban diagrams, and much more.Its integrations provide us with functionality to work collaboratively in environments such as MS TEAMS and its adoption in the organization is fast and intuitive.

Cons

Lucidchart is great at what it does. We may try to ask for more of its scope and in many cases, it will not disappoint us, however if we are looking for a sophisticated design application that has powerful functionality related to specialized rich text fonts, color palette registration, a grouping of objects to create custom libraries in a project, to name a few examples, we are going to need to evaluate some other option, but if what we want is to work in agile and collaborative environments, Lucidchart is undoubtedly one of the best options today.

It is a good tool to draw diagrams, and we use it to draw class and ER diagrams representation of our software and database models. Overall easy to use and powerful, but with some glitches to be fixed.

Pros

Lucidchart is very handy to draw diagrams and figures, especially for database models. It gives you a lot of control over the appearance of your diagram and it is nice that me and my team can collaborate easily on drawing and refining the diagrams.

Cons

Quite sometimes the app has difficulties loading and I'm obliged to close the browser tab and restart it. While this does not affect the app usability once you're in, it can be pretty annoying and it has led me to close the tab and not come back to the app more than once.

Cost was a over all factor when looking into this product.

Pros

I did like its user interface. I Admin portal was easy to use also. Adding SSO was easy to understand.

Cons

The price was high compared to other products. Also there was no bulk export to Visio and had to do one by on.

Great tool for diagrams and documentation

Reviewed on 2024/02/13

Pros

The ease of use. The many advance features with layers etc. Easy to collaborate on diagrams as well. Possibility of integrations with API.

Cons

Default styling/design of diagrams could look better. It would be great with some templates/styles that looks modern out-of-the-box. That said they are still doing better in this area than many other similar tools.
