About Lucidspark

Lucidspark is a web-based whiteboard tool, designed to help teams collaborate on projects and share ideas. The collaborative platform provides users with an adaptable space to share ideas, create plans, collaborate on projects, organize tasks, and evaluate ideas. With Lucidspark, teams can brainstorm ideas and collaborate in real time with synchronized editing and instant updates.

Lucidspark provides a range of collaboration and brainstorming features including sticky notes, commenting, freehand drawing tools, a built-in timer, up-votes, dot voting, and more. Teams can utilize the pre-built project templates within Lucidspark to structure their brainstorming sessions, with templates such as a 2x2 matrix, customer journey map, or project roadmap.

In order to streamline workflows, Lucidspark facilitates integration with a range of third party tools including Slack, Google Drive, and Zoom, as well as Lucidchart for turning ideas into actionable workflows.

Pros

Easy to use and get clients using it with me. It’s the perfect tool for remote collaboration.

Cons

File organisation can be a little tricky and I’m not always sure which files are shared and which are private.

I love the ease of use! I have previously featured Lucidspark as part of a 'Best Platforms' series I did on LinkedIn and I would add it a hundred times over :)

Pros

I am an operations consultant so I spend a lot of time thinking about, creating and documenting efficient processes for my clients. Lucidspark makes it possible to clearly map out the customer journey and contextualize their systems design. If a picture is worth a thousand word, a Lucidspark flowchart is worth two thousand! There is no better way to demonstrate how you can bring value to the most important stakeholders for your business- your amazing customers!

Cons

When you are on the free trial, you can only retain/update 3 documents at a time.

Visio

Reasons for Choosing Lucidspark

I hated how boring and clunky draw.io appears. The drag/drop functionality was not great and the customization options were non-existent. Even the free version of Lucidspark was MILES better!

In my opinion, the pros, and cons are pretty evenly balanced, making Lucidspark a no-go for me. At least it would have been for me had I been evaluating integration for the whole company.

Fortunately, all I did was collect and tally votes, including my own "Maybe," in the engineering team opinion poll after trialing the product. While I occasionally still use Lucidspark, other programs remain my go-to.

Pros

The virtual whiteboard, idea collection and organization, and remote-first approach are among Lucidspark's top attributes.

Cons

Onboarding/learning to use the software effectively and efficiently was a bit of a challenge, and without prior Lucidchart experience might be a dealbreaker.

Alternatives Considered

Miro and Freehand

Reasons for Switching to Lucidspark

Ultimately, we chose not to switch to Lucidspark and continued using Invision Freehand as our primary shared whiteboarding software. Some improvements have also been made to Microsoft Whiteboard recently. Although it currently lacks the feature to be a viable contender in the space, it shows potential promise for the future.

Lucidspark is primarily used by me for long-term planning. The most useful aspect was that I was able to immediately use icons to explain my planning.

Pros

Working in a group using Lucidspark is a breez, where We no longer need to meet in person to take images of the whiteboard. I used the workflow databases and diagrams to develop a whole application, which Start using one of the many templates provided. There's lots of opportunity for thought and debate here, for that we Make it unique with the available shapes.

Cons

Disappointing was the large size of the completed workflow drawings, which we were sometimes unable to email as attachments.
