We use it for making flowcharts. We are using the iOS and PC views to make mock-ups and wireframes.

I do a lot of strategy stuff with it: * Mapping things out that way. * Laying out product plans and roadmaps. * Visually showing people some of that information. I use it for general mapping, more like a canvas. I'm a single user who uses it for our company for a very specific need. We are using Lucidchart through the web.

Primarily, we have been using it for collaborating with other team members and documenting the work that we are doing as a team and organization. Its two main functions are to document and collaborate.

I use it for the WBS tree diagram, the work breakdown structure, and for divisional workflow mapping. I also use it for whiteboarding sessions with my team. And I have used it for an operational requirements matrix. Our company has used it for making a company organizational chart.

We use it for primarily for two things: * Website architecture design. * Process flow diagrams. Most of our company's designers and I are on Macs along with a few other Mac users, then everybody else is on Windows machines. I also have a Windows machine, so it has to work on both.

I used Lucidchart to build-out items such as business org charts, business processes/workflows, and product diagrams. Lucidchart is much better than competitors that I have used, such as Visio. I am able to easily save off charts I have created in a PDF document, which is primarily what I do. The flexibility of Lucidchart is great. It is easy to create swim lane process documents with as many rows as you would like. It is also very easy to include columns into the swim lane that allows you to show where one process ends and another picks up. This feature has allowed me to generate very detailed process documents that my employers have loved.

Our primary use case of this solution is to create some process flows, namely how the user will use the product, how they will walk through the product, etc. We don't use the program very often - only once every week or so.

I definitely recommend Lucidchart. I feel it is one of the top visual collaboration platforms that’s available on the market. Out of all the solutions I have tried, it is by far the best for diagramming, whiteboarding, and data visualization. It practically allows you to diagram anything from ideas, information, and processes to drive better business decisions. The reasons why I like it most is because it helps optimize business processes, enables you to visualize technical systems, makes it possible for you to brainstorm with remote teams, allows you to design a superior user experience, and lets you plan and deploy new features faster. Here are some of its biggest benefits: See deeper into your organization: Lucidchart has good people management. The solution helps you identify staffing needs, manage cross-functional teams, and ensure employees are paid equitably. In addition, Lucidchart makes it possible for you to connect employee data to organization charts and automatically generate a view that works for you. Helps optimize your network: With Lucidchart, your organization can monitor the status of your network and optimize its performance as your company grows. You can close deals faster: By implementing Lucidchart, you can shorten your sales cycle with account mapping. The solution enables you to import contact data automatically from Salesforce to create a holistic view of the account. Better communication: Lucidchart helps your organization quickly understand what you need to build, and also allows you to easily convey your ideas to team members and stakeholders who may have different levels of technical knowledge. Increased efficiency: With Lucidchart you are able to visualize your processes in current and future states, identify bottlenecks and areas of improvement, and process implementation, all of which help boost your organization’s efficiency. Improve project management: Lucidchart helps you keep projects on track. You can scope your projects accurately, monitor status, and keep your team aligned on project progress. Besides having great benefits and many advantages, here are some of the solution’s powerful features I like most: Compatibility: Lucidchart is compatible with PC, Mac, and Linux systems. The solution’s cloud-based platform and intuitive interface make it simple to start diagramming, regardless of which device, browser, or operating system is being used. Diagramming: Your team can diagram together from anywhere. Teams can work collaboratively with real-time co-authoring, in-editor chat, shape-specific comments, and collaborative cursors. Data linking: Lucidchart allows you to instantly see data in context. With Lucidchart, you can overlay important metrics on existing diagrams through data linking or use auto-visualization to generate organization charts, ERDs, and more. Easy integration: Lucidchart can easily integrate with your most-used apps. It enables you to start new diagrams or include existing visuals where conversations are already happening, such as Google Workspace, Atlassian, Microsoft Office, Asana, and Slack. Scalability: Lucidchart is designed to scale as your company does. You have the option to increase account security through centralized account management, document retention, and more. Overall, I would rate Lucidchart an eight out of ten. Since I started using it, I have been very satisfied.

No, it is a half-baked version of Microsoft Draw. I guess they have a good marketing team. I would never recommend it.
