Lucidchart is a great way to capture projects into one page and make them clear for your teams / departments. Personally I do not use the collaboration tool, but I use it for myself when I start new projects and need to present them.
Pros : - Easy to use to draft out projects. - Affordable for the purpose of the software.
Cons : - Could definitely use an application on iOS or Android to draft projects on the go. - Big focus on IT and web related projects which translates in the symbols and icons to use. Could use more different icons for traditional project management as well.
It's okay as a diagramming app. The interface is somewhat useful and there are lot more shapes to choose from as well. However it's not as easy to use as some other software of similar nature. Especially if you're not used to working with other diagramming software. Overall if you're looking for a quick diagram without fuss then this is a good tool to use.
Pros : Free ( with some limitations ) Lots of shapes to choose from Real-time collaboration Google drive integration
Cons : Not easy to figure out functions/actions Very little help documentation
I was looking to draw a simple flowchart and left feeling frustrated. After adding a start and a process I had a hard time figuring out how to connect them. Took me a while to realize that you have to drag the bubbles that appear when you select a box. I guess you'll get use to it after a while, but definitely not beginner friendly.
Pros : * 14 day premium plan trial * Visio import might be relevant if you plan to import Visio files
Cons : * High learning curve and little help to get started * No templates to get started, which is standard with most software nowadays * Free plan doesn't include mind maps, mock-ups etc * Mentions a object limit of 60 in free plans

Lucidchart is an easy-to use, diagramming application for the Web and has a minimal learning curve. Lucidchart offers useful features such as importing Visio and OmniGraffle files, integration with Google Docs and Google Drive, an offline mode, and excellent collaboration support through chat and video.
