Quip Overview

What is Quip?

Quip is a team collaboration solution which combines document and spreadsheet creation and editing with chat and commenting capabilities, to allow teams to communicate about tasks and projects directly while working on them.

Quip enables users to create and edit documents, spreadsheets, and checklists collaboratively in real time, through the ‘Smart Inbox’ interface, with the ability to filter and star documents to speed up searching. Document revisions are stored so users can track changes, and annotations can be added to spreadsheets and documents. Finished tasks can be checked off on the checklist, keeping all team members informed of which tasks have been completed.

Rather than communicating by email, users can chat directly within a document, with inbuilt 1:1 personal messaging and the ability to comment on any content. @mentions also allow users to direct teammates to individual spreadsheet cells, or insert items such as images and code into documents. User-controlled notifications keep team members updated on any messages or mentions.

Quip works across desktop and mobile, with native iOS and Android apps, and with offline functionality, users can work on documents on the go, with changes being updated whenever there is an internet connection.

An amazing platform to track your ideas

We use quip to track our updates, design documents etc and it has proven to be a really powerful platform for the same.

I am enjoying this tool, and Quip has managed to stand out in this heavily competitive field of online collaboration.

I prefer other collaboration tools, but if you just need to share a large file or collaborate with a few other people, it does the job.

Perfect for quick notes

Great tool for quick notes and easy access but not a tool I'd recommend to use over Google Drive or Microsoft Office.

Quip combines MS Office or G-Suite into one app

Quip was fine, but it is redundant to both MS Office and/or G-Suite and there is no need for all of these. It was fine, but the ability to have different doc types was alright, but not that needed.

We use quip to track our updates, design documents etc and it has proven to be a really powerful platform for the same.

Pros

1. I love quip as its the only good version controlled platform for taking notes that I have found in my industry experience of over 5 years.
2. Its easy to create public/private versions. I could easily create documents that are public (i.e. outside the firm) and private to me.
3. It is so easy to mark your favorite folders and share it across teams.
4. Its fast. I have found Google Docs to be a bit slower than quip.
5. You could easily import the content into a wiki or a word document with all the formatting intact.
6. You can create an excel sheet (or multiple sheets) in quip itself.
7. Onboarding and gettting used to the platform is really easy.

Cons

1. It behaves odd when creating tables and adding pictures (like indentation sometimes screws up).
2. If you are looking for a platform to create animated documents, quip might not be your friend. It supports basic data representation objects like tables, pictures, worksheets but if you want audio etc, you want to goto powerpoint.

I am enjoying this tool, and Quip has managed to stand out in this heavily competitive field of online collaboration.

Pros

Quip UI is really smooth, and feels new! it has a good functionality to provide the revision history for the document, which I think is very useful. When multiple folks are simultaneously editing the same document, the revision history for each line provides a very nice view of who changed what.

Additionally, Quip has a chat tool embedded in its UI. I use this often to communicate with other folks who are working on the same project.

Cons

I dont have a strong dislike for any of the features, but perhaps one point was it takes significant time for a new guy to get to to speed with the tool and understand all the intricate details.
Perhaps the on boarding proceed can be better

I prefer other collaboration tools, but if you just need to share a large file or collaborate with a few other people, it does the job.

Pros

It's great for real-time editing, you can see the history of the document edits and who made each change, and it's easy to organize in folders and share with a specific group of people with specified permissions. Since it's cloud-based, I like using it for collaboration and sharing large files.

Cons

Quip is not easy to navigate. I think the UI is missing basic functionality. It is hard to revert to an old version or it can get slow if too many people are using it at once. I prefer Google Docs.

Great tool for quick notes and easy access but not a tool I'd recommend to use over Google Drive or Microsoft Office.

Pros

Quip is a great tool to use for your team when quickly brainstorming and jotting down ideas. It strips itself of unnecessary formatting/UI options and provides you a clean slate to work smarter.

Cons

While Quip is easy to use, using Quip as a main tool to create spreadsheets or documents is not something I recommend. Exporting a Quip spreadsheets to Excel will export all the information over but leaves you with a lot of manual formatting and editing and becomes unreliable when needing to export something on the fly. This could be fixed if the "Save to PDF" function worked properly, but alas, saving to a PDF does not allow you to format properly and will include the Header rows and columns into the PDF - thus not allowing you to send clean, concise information over to colleagues.

Quip was fine, but it is redundant to both MS Office and/or G-Suite and there is no need for all of these. It was fine, but the ability to have different doc types was alright, but not that needed.

Pros

Quip allowed an easy format to combine multiple document types into one document. It was also great to document sharing across multiple parties and the related and needed tracking or changes, comments, notes, etc.

Cons

The storage / saving and file structure was odd, and the ability to create secure directories vs sharing with everyone was not always clear. Also, the embedded spreadsheets in word docs was ok - but not great. The generalization did not have the same capability as each dedicated system.
