Lucidchart added to Google Marketplace Apps

Announcing Lucidchart

 

Update: 10/24/14 – Lucidchart has been extended now that the initial pilot has been successful. It is now considered a core application offered to Lab Users.

 

Background

We are pleased to announce the addition of LucidChart  (a web based diagramming tool) to the applications available through the Google marketplace.  The IT division is making this product free of charge to any LBL employee.

We expect this to be a replacement for Visio (at least for the average user).  We have a one year subscription for our pilot program and plan togather feedback on how useful it is sometime later in the year.

Accessing Lucidcharts

After logging into a Google service (like gmail.lbl.gov)  click the app launcher icon in the upper right - the 9-dot icon - then More.   You will see an icon for Lucidchart.

Getting Started

Tutorials can be found here.  We are also in the process of arranging a noon brownbag (webex) hosted by the vendor for anyone interested in learning more about the product. We will announce the day and time to the GUG.
