What do you like best?
I constantly create flowcharts in order to keep handy summaries of everything I learn, and one way of bringing these flowcharts to life is by using Creately. Something I seriously like about creately is that I can add characters to my flowcharts so that they become “more engaging”. And the best part is that I can add these characters only by dragging and dropping them anywhere inside my flowchart. Then, I just need to add some text, a few lines, and I have a “living” flowchart that helps me learn faster any subject.
What do you dislike?
I don´t really like the fact that Creately workspace has a greyish grid as a background. At least for me, it would be better if the default background for Creately was plain white. Also, I think that it would be useful if the team in creately could add funny faces to the characters, as this would mean more engagement for people like me, who use the software to create learning aids.
Recommendations to others considering the product
Creately is a really nice tool for creating “living flowcharts” (when I say “living flowcharts”, I mean flowcharts which are really engaging because you can add characters full of colors!). Also, you can create other types of useful charts, such as synoptic tables. My advice is that Creately is probably the best online tool to create fast charts in a really short time.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I´m creating my own flowcharts for my own freelance business and personal learning: every type of business (personal, small and big) needs to have a diagram that states the steps to follow for a certain activity, and with Creately, I can do that in a matter of minutes. It´s as easy as that.
