Quip is a cloud-based project management and task collaboration solution 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. The solution is also available for on-premise deployment.

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 internet connection gets re-established.

Quip is available on a monthly subscription basis that includes support via email and phone.

Quip - a super nice collaboration tool

To be simple, we really like this easy to use collaboration tool.

Pros

So easy to collaboration with colleagues, and for family. Get everything together rather than individual files everywhere. "Word", "Excel", "Powerpoint" lite versions, so easy to use, whatever you want. With google account integration. No hassle for account management. You certainly don't expect it to be super powerful, but it is good enough for our purpose.

Cons

Logic of files arrangement a bit confusing. If you are coming from traditional file system. You may need sometime to get used to it. Moving files around is not that easy, especially if you want to manage multiple files at the same time. It used to be annoying that recent editing panel shows up every time you open the application. Recent updates fix this problem.

BEST toothbrush out there!

Pros

I love that they mail the new battery and brush head to me every 3 months, so easy to keep up with and make sure that I have a clean, functioning toothbrush.

Cons

The toothbrush head is sometimes hard to pull off, but not too bad. Once I figured it out it was pretty easy to do.

I would like the old Quip back!

Pros

Quip does a great job at being a very easy-to-use app when it comes to having collaborative documents to share for work. I like how different team members can contribute and leave their input simultaneously with other coworkers.

Cons

The new UI makes things and tools hard to find. With an extremely clean look where the color white is so predominant, buttons are difficult to see and getting your work done may be more difficult.

Helpful way to access the same document simultaneously

We used to use this to write our staff meeting agenda, and take notes as the meeting progressed. I have also used it for document creation for personal business.

Pros

Ability to create different kinds of documents. Ability to share with multiple people. Being able to use on multiple devices.

Cons

It could at times be difficult to undo sharing.

Well designed collaboration system, but no compelling use case

Pros

Quip's UI and UX are professional and slick

Cons

After purchasing and installing Quip on mobile, I never used it and did not find a single instance where using Quip would be more helpful or compelling compared to G Suite

Interesting hybrid

Pros

Seems like Quip is pitching to get you to drop a couple of commonly used collaboration/comms apps and replace it with their hybrid . In fact the integration to get you into it from Slack using SSO is slick - and though the task organising feature has less functionality that other similar tools - it makes up by integration with the comms/chat elements

Cons

The long list of extension apps, though potentially hugley powerful, a bit mindboggling and might send you back to the separate components - though it seems worth some trialling

Great for collaborating

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.

Quip review

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.

Not my Favorite...

Pros

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.

Google Docs on Steroids

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.

Quip Is Great For Collaboration

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.

Quip User Revew

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.

Fun collaboration tool

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.

Salesforce's perfect collaboration tool

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 and Quip for Salesforce

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.

It's not as great as Google

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.

Best App Ever!

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.
