Quip Software


 

Quip is a project management and task collaboration tool that help users work together and communicate without emails. Users can create and edit spreadsheets, documents and checklists in the system, and team members can chat and comment on files in real time.

With Quip’s team chat feature, users can create different chat rooms on different topics, and there are discussion threads for each document. Users can attach documents to chats, and the document will appear by the chat, so users can chat and view documents at once.

Quip’s task list offers personal to-do lists, project milestones and priorities lists and allows users to check off finished tasks. When tasks are checked off, other team members are automatically informed.

Quip offers dedicated apps for iOS and Android. Users can also work offline, and documents can be synced in the system when users next connect to the internet.

Unlimited free trial and great for text-based collaboration

Pros

Quip allows you to try their platform for free as long as you need, so you can really figure out whether or not it works for your team before you invest in the paid version. Compared to other products that have a time-limited free trial, Quip offers a much better evaluation period.

Cons

The ability to upload images and PDFs is limited at best. It's easier to upload a photo album on Facebook and share it with your team than it is to do the same thing in Quip. Great for text based documents, however.

Quip provides unique ability to create, edit and share highly customized documents/spreadsheets. Quip doesn't have a structure to follow for project management, so it requires a lot of upfront time commitment and development. However, after creating the needed documents and templates, it is the perfect tool.
Specifically, great to use for mind-mapping, checklists, embedded spreadsheets/tracking.

Pros

Integrates with Google Drive, version control, file attachment, collaboration, custom templates, slack integration, flexibility, permissions control, great interface, easy to use

Cons

No internal task delegation/planning features, no report building

Advice to Others

Give it a try, it is well worth the money and provides flexibility for a whole range of projects and tasks.

I've spent a lot of time navigating the endless world of Google productivity tools and at times I'm met with more frustration than productivity, mostly related to scale and having a large number of contributors. Quip makes that easy with a sleek canvas feel and an easy-on-the-eyes way of organizing. Sometimes less is more and I've found that simple has boosted productivity for myself and my teams and collaboration is at an all-time high. The one drawback I have is somewhat of a challenge: when collaboration and comments spike there should be a better way to filter through the noise, as it can get a bit stifling keeping track of all the conversations. Thread/forum type implementation perhaps?

Pros

Sleek look, ease of use, organization

Cons

Filtering/presentation of comments/collaboration, lack of slide deck feature

Advice to Others

Quip is my team's go to utility for writing documents together. Google Docs is probably one of the most well known cloud based document editors that facilitates collaboration between team members. However, its collaborative elements always seemed tacked on. You can tell that Quip was built to be a team writing tool from the ground up.

Pros

Ease of use. It's "stupid easy" to invite people to collaborate on a document. Comments are a breeze. Paragraphs auto-lock when you are editing them to avoid confusion. You can track your team members usage.

Cons

I wish that reviewing, version control, and security were stronger.

The inclusion of approval processes and flows would be extremely welcome.

Advice to Others

Try it out! It's so easy.

This might not be the tool of choice for a large org with very detailed processes, but it is probably perfect for your team to get together (online) to write something.

Quip is a nice way to work on documents in a team, but some important features are still missing. It's pretty easy to create folders, documents and edit them in a team but tracking the overall status is complicated. You can create task-lists but there is no connection to the real documents so tracking progress is rather complicated. Functionalities to set the document status, assign it to team member and tracking progress would be a big plus.

Pros

- Great document collaboration
- Simple and intuitive

Cons

- Too much focus on chat and commenting, but no proper way to indicate a document status
- No task assignments
- Document overview is confusing, sorting options only in list view

Advice to Others

- No automatic task lists
- A board link Kanban to indicate document status would be perfect
- Idea board

I have a small staff who needs to work together at various times, and usually not in person. We've tried a handful of options (dreaded e-mail chains, Google drive, slack, OneNote, Trello), with varying degrees of success.

But when you get right down to it, the majority of our conversations where revolving around documents. With Quip, that is exactly how this is designed. It is a live document centered experience with the ability to comment, discuss, and update to drive to agreed upon results.

Other packages we would lose our chain of conversation, or a struggle to find the agenda, spreadsheet, plan. Here, these two elements tie together in one spot.

End result for me? Instead of feeling like I was beating on people to keep moving, and often their secretary to help them find what I was talking about, now we work together with faster results and a whole lot less fuss and muss.

Pros

VERY intuitive interface. My staff is resistant to change, and they picked up on this software immediately. Looks good on the web, great on my desktop, and awesome on my phone!

Customer support is astounding. Hit the chat window and someone is there immediately.

Cons

Very minor detail here - more of a feature enhancement request. It would be great to tie in some sort of task management, e.g. something with due dates that alert you.

Advice to Others

Try it. Definitely something the more you use (give it two days), the more you appreciate it and how well it fits.

Very promising software right here! Got a few bugs to work out, maybe a few features to add, but in general, I am thoroughly impressed. Quip attempts to cover a large number of interfaces related to collaboration and excels at everything.

Pros

Chat is as good as slack
Docs are as good as gDocs
Support is as good as... well there's no comparison.

Cons

Minor bugs that will probably be worked out.
