Lucidchart for HipChat brings your flowcharts into your workflow

, Product Marketing | February 26, 2016

You can type your heart out, but sometimes the best way to get a point across is to show a visual. Flowcharts help teams organize thoughts, projects, and organizational structures, and Lucidchart, an easy-to-use flowchart and diagramming tool, is your ticket to helpful visuals land.

Plus, with the new Lucidchart for HipChat integration, your flowcharts and your workflows are one. HipChat is where your team is working, so just like sharing files, now your team can share collaborative charts.

The integration works smoothly whether you’re working in HipChat or Lucidchart. In Lucidchart, you can post any chart to a HipChat room with the click of a button. In HipChat, teammates are able to see and visit the chart, where they can collaborate – yet again – in real time.

Here’s how it works. In Lucidchart, just share your chart into any HipChat room by clicking the blue “share” button.

You can then find any person or room in HipChat, and share it.

The chart will pop up in your room, and everyone in the room can click the link to join the collaboration process in Lucidchart.

You can also create a new chart in HipChat with a simple “/Lucidchart”. Every person in the room can then join the collaborative flowchart.

By bringing in awesome tools like Lucidchart, HipChat becomes much more than chat for teams. It becomes your home base for all team-related activity. The Lucidchart integration is another example of how work tools can fold logically and neatly into your conversations in HipChat.
