    Pros

    The UI is incredible and I love some of the cool features that you can insert into a document. This product is great for collaborating with others. The comments section is perfect for letting others know what you think. It's nice to store all your documents in one place that is easy to use.

    Cons

    Sometimes the formatting gets messed up and doesn't have as much functionality as I'd like to see.

    In my experience, I've really enjoyed using Quip to easily house documents and spreadsheets with a friendly and easy to use interface.

    Pros

    Quip is a great tool to use for collaborative work. Often times, my team would have to share multiple versions of the same spreadsheet, but with Quip, you can see real-time updates from colleagues and communicate all within the app.

    Cons

    While it is great for collaboration, the tool becomes glitchy when it contains a large amount of data. There have been instances of lost work due to inability to save changes. If you are working with large spreadsheets with multiple tabs, it could become too much for the tool to handle.

    Easy to create files and documents and not much of a learning curve. It is pretty straight-forward with file sharing and organization.

    Cons

    This didn't work well for what I was trying to do. Integrations are complicated if even possible and it runs pretty slow.

    We have rolled Quip out to multiple departments and teams over the past few years.

    Pros

    Continuing improvement in the feature set. The software was good when we started using it 2.5 years ago. However, the improvements continually made month after month have really made the product shine. We really get use out of the full index/searching capability.

    Cons

    A few basic things that would mimmic Excel functionality, like the ability to freeze columns on mobile, or hide rows/columns on both the desktop and mobile.

    So far Quip has been useful when it comes to collaborating on writing outlines for projects that require more than one person.

    Pros

    You can set collaboration with as many or as few people as you want.

    Cons

    Sometimes the app will act out a little, and it could always use more features.

    At the end of the day, I would suggest you look into using Google Docs over Quip as it seems to be another system that does not communicate with any other formats, and can be a very frustrating system as a user.

    Pros

    This software is great in theory - allows for teams to connect and share working documents with live updates. It is fairly straight forward to use, and allowing multiple users to read and edit the documents at the same time is helpful.

    Cons

    This software constantly updates - I have yet to open this software without there being a system update needed (and therefore a restart). Beyond that, you cannot export the documents built into quip into any other format (Excel being the most critical). Some of the tasks are far more difficult than they should be - even changing the font requires multiple click through menus.

    Pros

    Quip is a pretty fun collaboration tool. It's like other chat tools, but with an emphasis on sharing and collaborating on docs in real time. Some of the tools, such as project trackers and calendars, are super helpful tools and it makes accessing them super convenient.

    Cons

    Some of the chat tools aren't up to speed. For example, no built-in searchable gifs. Maybe that's to help productivity, but they're still fun to have. In general, there don't seem to be as many built-in integrations as Slack.

    If you use Salesforce it is a no-brainer to get Quip. It makes acting on data from your Org quick and easy without having to flip between multiple applications or windows.

    Pros

    What I enjoy most about this tool is the ability to pull information from Salesforce to help with planning. It allows me to create lovely collaborative documents with live information from Salesforce. This makes the project standup quick and easy.

    Cons

    I have a very nitpicky con but as a daily excel user, I wish the spreadsheet functions had an easier to use interface. It feels hard to do easy things like changing the format of a column.

    Quip is a great addition for any company with its easy to use style of collaboration and flexibility in security and structure. I'd like to see a lot more training videos on how to leverage Quip for things like Project Management to plant those seeds and help companies grow and realize the full potential of this application.

    Pros

    Salesforce recently added Quip to it's suite of products and we couldn't be happier. We have been searching for a project management application as well as a solution for sharing documents and data while not housing inside our Salesforce org, due to storage limitations. We see Quip as being that all in one application that can solve many of these needs in our organization. It is powerful, flexible, offers free and paid apps like a project management app and allows for flexibility with security of files and folders. Not to mention the live chat and collaboration features it offers. A great all around solution for anything you can't already solve in your standard Salesforce Org.

    Cons

    I have requested several specific demos from our sales team so that we can more fully realize what Quip can do to meet some of our more basic needs. We've been given links to sales demos which don't address our specific needs. Once we get an idea on what we can do with it and how, it will drive more ideas and creativity for our team, we're just having a hard time getting started.

    The secure single sign on for our organization

    Pros

    I like that it's secure but its not that intuitive or easy to use. I wish it were because the security is a good feature.

    Cons

    Links aren't easy to copy and formatting options are lacking. It's not as easy to use as Google which we can all pick up fast.

    Quip is very helpful in everyday living in terms of work, family, friends or even to have acquaintance at a business conference. It also helps you communicate with your customers and make a loyal customer-consumer relation. Quip have many apps for project tracking, calendar, working with Salesforce records, which is very exciting to explore.

    Pros

    Quip can be download any device, accessible to all as long as you have internet connection. It's a messaging platform with a super powerful tool to access documents that can add comments and live-editing real time updating at the same time you have the ability to highlight portions of a document. I love chatting to my friends. It's very good in my daily living because it really helps me communicate with one another and make the acquaintance of to come into also kind a social contact with. If it weren't for this app I would be completely isolated when I am grounded.

    Cons

    There's only one thing I wish Quip can help me and that is to be acquaintance to someone I like. Quip will bring me to what I'm aiming the most- the stars of my future. Enjoy using Quip. It never disappointment me.

    Pros

    Ease of making changes to data and info, ease of removing changes, central locations for all employees to view. Easy to organize data and documents as well.

    Cons

    The app could use some improvement in ways things are organized. I would hope that these changes will come in time to make it as easy as the online version.

    Pros

    It's very easy to collaborate on a document. You just add people to it. All the changes are logged so you can see all the things that happen to your document. You can also create all kinds of documents on Quip, from the everyday text document and spreadsheet to the specific kanban board and project tracker (with a little help from Live apps).

    Cons

    The app lacks the ability to add tags - which will be very helpful to further organize the documents. It also doesn't hurt to add the font-customization feature so that users can set the look and feel of the working environment to their liking.

    Pros

    Using Quip, it became easy and quick to create documents. The work in the tables is now possible in the team, and now you do not need to send the document to your colleague every time and wait for his corrections, and then also receive it by mail. There is a chat room that allows you to edit documents together. This function helps your work and communication, and also saves a lot of time. Documents made in Quip will be synchronized in one cloud where they can be quickly found, so now we are not afraid to lose them.

    Cons

    There are a few bugs that you need to fix the development team. I ran into several hangs and crashes when using it, but fortunately, I did not lose any of my work, which pleased me very much. I would like that this did not happen again.
