Quip Software


 

Quip is a project management and task collaboration tool that helps 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.

A refreshing way to collaborate and communicate in document creation

Ease-of-use

N/A

The big takeaway is that Quip uniquely enables you and your colleagues to create a multi-asset document in one place, together.

Pros

Quip enables users to build a rich, multimedia, and multi-asset document in one location. Do you need to create a document that includes a calendar, spreadsheet, and kanban board all in the same place? Quip can do that.

Cons

While the interface has improved recently, it is still a little difficult to navigate from your document to the folder in which it is contained. Also, Quip could make better use of icons for identifying content types.

Pros

I like that when edits are made to a document that those with access to it are immediately notified of any changes. In addition I like there is running history of the changes that were made to the document.

Cons

The copy/paste feature was not as robust. When I attempted to copy content from one source into the Quip doc the formatting was difficult to fix especially where bullets were used to define the content.

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 has great integration, it's a great platform for project management and customer service is great.

It doesn't have enough security from my point of view. The desktop app has no security at all and I think that they should change the way information within the app is accessed.

The most useful aspect of Quip is its simplicity. It's easy to comment and it's easy to change and see changes and revert to previous versions

Cons

The only small complaint I have is that the text formatting controls are a bit limited.The other problem is how Quip doesn't work well with PDF's. It takes a long time to upload them.

being able to make 'to do' lists, view, update and share them constantly within the company as well as external companies and suppliers.

Pros

I like the fact that multiple people can see all information and edit without things getting lost. it also has some useful features.

Cons

its not particularly attractive, not a major concern but it just looks outdated. It would also benefit from a 'help' button being available for all users all the time.

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
