In the rapidly evolving modern workplace, few tools can transform the way you collaborate like digital whiteboards. Digital whiteboards work wherever you work. In real time, your team can brainstorm, present ideas, and solve problems—just like if you were together in a conference room (but without the hassle of a commute).

We may be biased, but we feel confident that Lucidspark is the only digital whiteboard you’ll ever need. Lucidspark is an intuitive application that promotes seamless ideation and collaboration—and our engineers are continually working on making it even better so you know you’re always getting the best of the best.

In this article, we break down several things you may not know about Lucidspark that make it such an indispensable app for both teams and users.

Fact #1: It’s not just a whiteboard.

Sure, we just called it a whiteboard application, but that’s only the start of what Lucidspark can do. Lucidspark is malleable enough to fit dozens of use cases, meaning it can fit into different phases of your workflow. 

Planning a meeting? Lucidspark makes facilitation a breeze. With tools like the timer, Frames, and Note Panel, you can keep your collaboration productive and on track. Guide activities and agenda items with ease, empowering your team to do their best work. 

Need the next big idea? Ideation is easy with Lucidspark. Capture ideas as quickly as they come using sticky notes, freehand sketches, or typed notes. Riff on ideas, leave comments, or react with your favorite emoji. When you’re brainstorming in such a nimble space with infinite collaborators, the opportunities are endless. 

And if you need a space for strategic planning, Lucidspark can cover that, too. Visualize your plans, then make assignments and take action—all in one central location. Create timelines, gain input from stakeholders, and connect with other apps you already love.

Fact #2: It’s one of the most established whiteboard applications available.

There are many whiteboard solutions available, but none can compete with the 12+ years Lucid has put into building the most intelligent visual collaboration platform on the market. Many companies are just entering the visual collaboration space, but Lucid has the benefit of living (and evolving) through the entire evolution of the modern move to hybrid work, so we know exactly what you need to do your best work. 

Fact #3: It’s perfect for teams of all sizes.

Lucidspark has room for unlimited collaborators, making it the perfect solution for your team—no matter how big (or small) your team is.

Lucid is trusted by more than 70 million users. Enterprise accounts offer intuitive admin controls, end-to-end security, tool consolidation, and custom, dedicated support. 

And teams of all sizes love it. 86% of users say that Lucid increases collaboration among hybrid teams and 83% report increased alignment and collaboration because of Lucid.

Fact #4: It has a huge template library.

Templates give you a head start in getting organized and focusing on the work that really matters. And with hundreds of  Lucidspark templates at your disposal (and counting), there’s something for essentially every use case out there. 

We’re continually creating more Lucidspark templates to help your ideas take flight, so there’s always something new to try. Whether you need a template for project planning, team building, education, strategic analysis, or something else entirely, our extensive template library will make it easy to get started.

Fact #5: It’s capable of handling highly technical use cases.

Many people think that Lucidchart is the only answer for technical use cases, but there is a lot you can do without leaving Lucidspark

Import and visualize data from a variety of popular applications to drive decisions that accelerate innovation, like Confluence, Azure, and Notion. Create custom shape libraries to standardize best visualization practices, embed existing assets into your whiteboard for added context, and seamlessly move from ideation to action with custom cards.

Plus, technical teams can still benefit from use cases like brainstorming and ideation, and Lucidspark works seamlessly with Lucidchart to streamline your workflow. 

Fact #6: It’s easy to use.

Adding a new tool to your tech stack can be intimidating, and you’re already busy—you don’t want to spend extensive time learning how to get started. Lucidspark’s onboarding process is fast. In less than five minutes, you’ll know enough to jump right into the product. Just review the different parts of the intuitive workspace and tools you have available, and you’re set.

Fact #7: It has an extensive icon library.

At Lucid, we believe that the best collaboration is visual collaboration, and our large icon library helps you standardize your best visualization practices. Easily search a wide variety of icons across the web to add to your document for clarity and interest. 

Or, take it a step further and create your own tailored library of shapes, containers, icons, images, and more. You can distribute these libraries internally for consistent documentation or on the Lucid marketplace. Users can drag shapes from custom shape libraries directly onto the canvas as they’re creating a document. That way, you’ll always have resources at your fingertips to create custom solutions for your unique use case.

Fact #8: It’s easy to add to your existing Lucid license.

If you’re already a Lucidchart fan, adding Lucidspark to your license is easy! Team bundles of the two apps start at just $13.50 per user, and because they work together so well, you’ll find it easy to jump between them. If you have an Enterprise account, you can even swap between the two at the click of a button with our universal canvas feature.

And Lucid pays off. According to a 2023 commissioned Total Economic Impact™ study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Lucid, a composite organization using Lucid saved $4.1M over three years through more efficient synchronous collaboration. Forrester also found a three-year 410% return on investment with Lucid.
