    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.

    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.

    Value for Money

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Cons

    Expensive. For a small team, it's bit much. On it's own it wouldn't be bad, but there are a bunch of other services needed besides Quip, to run our business so this one got the boot.

    Very easy document creation that live updates to all users as you create them. No more messing around uploading and downloading documents.
    Documents have lots of options like spreadsheets tables charts, images and other apps that can be inserted into any doc. You can also manage folders and share them with specific groups of people, so you might have a folder for employees which has all your procedures on it and a separate knowledge base for customers.
    For free its hard to find a better product

    Cons

    I would like to see the ability to copy documents between different quip accounts. I'd also like to see direct connections to excel of numbers, to give some more power to some of the features

    Real-time, flexible, and comprehensive document management. Quip is a great solution for remote teams and collaborators for all kinds of projects and workflows.

    Pros

    Quip is a very slick real-time document management platform. For remote teams, it's a very capable way to coordinate and edit documents for a wide variety of use cases. I especially like the user management features for bringing in collaborators and other outside partners to work on particular documents. Not only that, but Quip is super flexible, and even integrates into various CRM platforms for even greater capabilities.

    Cons

    Quip is great, but given the competitors out there, it's a little expensive. This is the one thing I would change about Quip.

    Pros

    Overall, I intellectually understand the appeal of Quip: It's fast, it's clean, it allows for easy sharing within organizations, and allows for tagging your teammates in-line within docs. It loads quickly, and because there isn't a ton of bloat, it seems to respond quickly and it overall feels lightweight.

    It absolutely serves a lot of purposes, and a lot of my colleagues use it as their app of choice when creating new docs, however, for me, I've never gotten over the hump with it.

    Cons

    I feel like perhaps they missed the boat on some basic UX principles. I can't name them (not a UX designer), but if feels like the app isn't conforming to the norms of UX... the app seems difficult to use, and I work for a tech company, am an early adopter, and usually can easily find my way around any new app.

    Additionally, the "conversation" pane is defaulted to always show. Imagine seeing having "tracked" changes from Microsoft word ALWAYS ON - granted it's in a sidebar, but it takes up valuable real estate and is just visually terrifying IMO.

    Pros

    I like that my data is available wherever there is Internet, and for my work this is not an important factor. You can open access to documents only to individual employees or select a list of employees who can edit the document. The program even sends you a notification when something is updated. Most of the features in the program make our work easier and faster. A good opportunity to see updates to the tables in real time. Keep documents in the cloud and easily required documents at the time of their search and use. In the chat you can discuss what you can change. The program has an excellent interface and three sections: notes, documents and chat. As you can see, the program is really useful for saving your time.

    Cons

    The mobile application of the program does not always work as fast as it would be desirable. I also want this platform to be able to edit. The copy and paste function was not so reliable. When I tried to copy content from one source to a document in this program, the formatting was difficult to fix.

    Productivity, Collaboration, Central repository.

    Pros

    I use quip mainly to organize my work and collaborate with my team members in documenting feature requirements. Product feature requirements are dynamic - in that, they change often. The ability to have one central location from where all of us can access it makes this a huge time saver for all. It also prevents unnecessary emails as users can chat / comment directly on quip. It also has the ability to create private folders which I use to store work in progress ideas and the ability to restrict access to some files / folders to specific people.

    Cons

    Quip requires the internet and often I forget that I have to be connected to save changes. Although it has the ability to add spreadsheets, I don't use it much. Also, have noticed when I copy paste code into code-blocks, the pasted content does not fit within the default page-width, but creates a horizontal scroll-bar within the code-block. It's a bit of an irritant to correct that every time.
