Welcome to Lucidchart for Jive, the premium tool for diagramming inside your social work environment. In the the next few minutes, I will go over how to get started with Lucidchart inside Jive and make sure you have everything you need to create and collaborate on your diagrams as quickly as possible.

First, navigate to the Jive Apps Market and install Lucidchart. You can then begin creating and inserting diagrams from the Apps dashboard. Inside the Lucidchart panel you’ll be given two choices: Create a new diagram, or insert an existing one. We’ll start with creating a new diagram. This takes you to the Lucidchart documents area and you are presented with a host of diagram templates to choose from--orr if you have a Visio file you’d like to import, you can click the grey import button to the left and select the Visio file. From the templates window, each category you choose from will determine what shape library is opened with the new document, so when you open a blank flowchart, the flowchart shape library will appear in the toolbox, but you can modify the visible libraries at anytime by clicking the “More Shapes” button and checking boxes for what you want shown. More information about the editor will be highlighted in the next video.

Once you have created your diagram, click “Return to Jive.” Choose the location you’d like to insert the diagram, and now you have successfully created and inserted a diagram in Jive.

Returning to the Apps dashboard, you also have the option to directly insert a diagram from Lucidchart. This again takes you to your documents area but instead of creating a new document, you simply select an existing file, click “Insert existing document,” and choose the location where it will be inserted.

After you’ve inserted a diagram, you can always make modifications with the edit option and change its size, or even modify the diagram by choosing to edit the diagram in Lucidchart, make any changes, and then return back to Jive to complete the image update on the page.

Now that you know how to access Lucidchart, it’s time to get to know the editor.
