From the start, Lucidchart was built for better collaboration. Especially in a world where the number of remote workers increases every year and many businesses have offices spread across the world, we’re motivated to help dispersed workforces stay connected and collaborate on the ideas and projects that move the business forward.

And our new integration with Microsoft Teams gives Lucidchart users yet another way to work together in real time and clearly communicate ideas, information, and processes.

Like Lucidchart, Microsoft Teams helps colleagues work together more efficiently—in this shared workspace, teams can chat as a group, share files, and hold web conferences.

Now, when you add the Lucidchart app to Microsoft Teams, you can also use this platform to collaborate on flowcharts, network diagrams, org charts, and other visuals. See how.

How it works

Collaborate with your colleagues by adding a Lucidchart document as a tab in any Team channel. Once you select an existing Lucidchart document or create a new one, anyone in the channel will be able to edit or comment on the document, as long as those team members are signed into their Lucidchart accounts.

Through the embedded editor, you and your team members can start diagramming just as you would in our standard browser editor. Without ever leaving Microsoft Teams, you’ll be able to:

  • Use intuitive, drag-and-drop functionality to build visuals quickly.
  • Give feedback through in-editor commenting, notes, and @mention notifications.
  • Link data to your diagrams and set up conditional formatting.
  • Import database schemas, AWS infrastructure, and CSVs.
  • Include links and layers for interactive diagrams.
  • Review changes or restore previous versions of your document through revision history.
  • Turn your diagrams into easy-to-consume slides through presentation mode.

With this integration, you can also access all your Lucidchart documents through Microsoft Teams by setting up a personal tab.
