All in One Office Suite with Focus on Collaboration

Pros

Quip provides you to create many kinds of documents under one roof. Not only text document, but also everything else from spreadsheets to presentation slides, and more. It also supports collaboration with others.

Cons

It requires more than one step just to access your folders. It might be a design decision, but it's not a friendly one.

Extreme simplicity with powerful functionality

Pros

I love the extremely simple nature of Quip. Instead of bogging down with tons of unnecessary features, they've identified all of the actual important functionality and made an extremely simple, easy user experience. Team communication is now greatly simplified and much faster compared to our previous workflow.

Cons

I actually can't think of anything that I don't like about Quip

My preferred collaboration tool at work.

In my organization,I get to work with multiple people from different locations.Quip provides me with a single platform via which I can collaborate with everyone ,and monitor what everyone is doing : instead of spending hours sorting through torns of email threads.

Pros

I like the version control quality which Quip affords me and how I can restore previous versions of any document,if someone makes a mistake on the updated version.It is easily accessible as I get to use it on my mobile phones and laptop.
I like the effectiveness of its search functionality because it makes it so easy to search through tons of files automatically,thereby eliminating the need to go through files one after another.

Cons

The user interface is not intuitive for me and I encounter issues navigating around this program.I also experiencing obstacles opening the web page from my mobile app.

Not "quip"py enough!

Pros

Very clean-looking, for sure!
Has nice plugins to draw, have spreadsheets, many others - makes it easy to edit and share. comments can be addressed in one place, and that's great for shared documents.

Cons

Many many features are missing when compared to other document editing softwares like docs or word. It is not exactly an apples to apples comparison, but not very different either. It is lightweight and easy to share, notes can be made well, but not great when it comes to organizing things like oneNote does. It does not give the feel of a notebook, nor an editor - it is almost somewhere in the middle not being sure of which functionality to focus on.

Great For Large Teams - Pricing Prohibitive For Small Business

Pros

It's a really handy, easy to use hub. That part, I like a lot. It's a great blend of tools, executed well.

Cons

The pricing could be better arranged for small businesses with 1-2 person teams, as well as teams where only some members need edit access and others need view-only access.

Quip, a product that does nothing new, but it does it pretty well

I didn't think that Quip could do anything that my current collaboration software can do, so it doesn't really encourage me to move from free offerings.

Pros

I like that quip does asynchrous group text editing pretty well.

Cons

It;s just another collaboration suite that management tries to push on your team and make it work.

QUIP REVIEW

Pros

I love how there is one place that all of my team can go to review and access documentation and notes and add notes as well.

Cons

I wish that quip was easier to use on my phone rather than having to use my computer all the time.

Quip Review

Quip was incredible to use while planning projects and sorting them into a platform to share that project with others. I seriously could use this software for even personal uses.

Pros

Quip, was one of the most affordable and efficient software I could find for my project. I would recommend the smooth platform to anyone.

Cons

I think some of the features could be a little more updated.

All in One Document Creator and Team Communication

Pros

Quip takes the concept of Slack one step further by combining team communication with document creator. And it's not just any document creator. Other than text document and spreadsheet, users can also create kanban board, calendar, to do list, and more.

Cons

I think Quip can do even better by upgrading the spreadsheet into a database. So, you can link the data in one document into another.

Team Documents and Communication Under One Roof

Pros

Quip provides users with the ability to create documents, spreadsheets, to-dos, and more under one dashboard. It also have chat features for team communication.

Cons

The look and feel could use some upgrades. For example, the available themes are too limited as there's no way to customize the font.

Great tool for cross-team collaboration

Pros

A lot of teams work across multiple tools and there is often downtime when trying to communicate about updates and changes. Quip solves for that and really streamlines workflow.

Cons

It takes a little time getting used to this because people will want to continue to work and communicate and make updates via email. This really requires that everyone is on board and committed to using the platform.

Easy to collaborate

Pros

Quip makes collaborating so easy and a helpful feature is that all changes are logged.

All About Documents and Collaboration

Pros

One document can contain many things, from texts, to spreadsheets, to calendars, to kanban boards, and more. It's also easy to collaborate with others on a document.

Cons

It takes more than one step to manage files and folders. It should be easily accessible from the sidebar.

Easy to Use, Features Somewhat Limited

It was honestly one of the better experiences I've had getting a team set up on a platform they'd never used. Seems good for the not-so-techie folks out there.

Pros

So. Easy. To. Use.

Quip helped a remote team get organized, share and store marketing materials, research and other company data.

Cons

We ran into issues with some of the documents we wanted to create, because the formatting options in Quip are extremely spartan.

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.
