New Lucid capabilities to help you build the future

Reading time: about 5 min


  • Lucid updates

Lucid’s mission has always been to help teams see and build the future faster through visual collaboration, and we believe that visual collaboration goes beyond meetings, whiteboards, and hybrid work. When visual collaboration is used throughout the entire workflow, from ideation to implementation, it can help you to bring your best ideas to life. 

Whether your team is building together or apart, synchronously or asynchronously, we’ve got a whole new lineup of capabilities to further drive clarity, collaboration, and alignment. Take a look! 

The Lucid Visual Collaboration Suite

Because we believe visual collaboration should span across a company’s entire workflow, we are now offering Lucidchart and Lucidspark together, along with some other key capabilities, for Enterprise users as the Lucid Visual Collaboration Suite. Combine intelligent diagramming with virtual whiteboarding for all of your users, no matter their team or department.

Universal canvas

A unified visual collaboration experience connecting work, ideas, and documentation across Lucidchart and Lucidspark is here!

Lucid universal canvas

With universal canvas, your team can seamlessly work across Lucidchart and Lucidspark as you move through a project workflow. Use the best tools for the work you’re doing while keeping it all within the same canvas to avoid silos and versioning issues. This helps:

  • Drive clarity across teams and processes. 
  • Keep teams aligned and informed. 
  • Reduce the time from ideation to execution.

Drive clarity across teams and processes

Our universal canvas helps make the complex clear. All stakeholders will be able to see and understand the work to be done for new and existing projects and processes.

Keep teams aligned and informed

Since data connections and collaborators persist on the universal canvas, teams retain important context around the work being done and documentation is easier to find and reference beyond brainstorming. 

Additionally, the universal canvas brings business and technical teams together in the same space but with the specific integrations and tools each team needs for their work.

Reduce the time from ideation to execution

In addition to reducing context switching, our universal canvas allows users to leverage Lucidchart and Lucidspark for the unique use cases they were designed for, moving your work from idea to reality faster and more efficiently than ever before.

Centralize messaging and communication

Clearly communicate updates by sending messages to your entire team or specific team members and assign ownership using drag-and-drop team member icons.

Launch into work

Open and work on your Lucid or select third-party documents right in your space, or create new Lucid documents within your space that are shared with all team members.

Visual Activities

Visual Activities are interactive activities that turn qualitative feedback into actionable insights that empower teams to make better decisions faster.

Lucid Visual Activities

Visual Activities can be embedded into Lucidspark, Lucidchart, and Team Spaces. Facilitators can select from a library of activity templates and invite participants to engage with dynamic exercises that spark discussion. Achieving consensus is as simple as viewing the results. This helps teams:

  • Gather information. 
  • Synthesize information to gain new insights.
  • Achieve alignment.

Gather information

Encourage participation and feedback from meeting attendees to capture the best ideas from every perspective. Or collect customer feedback to understand what projects or action items will deliver the highest value.

Synthesize information to gain new insights

First, generate actionable, data-backed insights right within Lucid using a common, visual language. Next, synthesize feedback to quickly determine and bring to life the plans that will advance your business. Then, plan and sort priorities efficiently to stay focused and move forward with purpose.

Achieve alignment

Facilitate candid conversations to reveal areas of misalignment through informative visuals and ultimately, reach consensus among differing perspectives.
