About Cacoo

Cacoo is an online diagram and collaboration tool for businesses to create sitemaps, flowcharts, mind maps, wireframes, mockups, and more. By utilizing and customizing a wide range of in-built templates, or building from scratch, users can create diagrams individually or as a team for brainstorming, workflow management, and project planning.

Using Cacoo’s multi-user workspace, teams of employees can collaborate in real time with features including synchronous editing, version tracking and feedback commenting. Multiple versions of diagrams can be saved by team members in order to retain and track a history of changes, and comments can be added directly to diagrams for actionable feedback or recommendations.

In order to assist users with diagram creation, Cacoo offers a wide range of templates and shapes for a variety of purposes including business process flowcharts, iOS wireframes, brainstorm mind maps, timeline Gantt charts, sales funnels, sitemaps, floor plans, and more. Once created, diagrams can be shared with teammates, management, or clients by sending an entire folder or individual diagram in either read-only or editable format. Diagrams can also be shared via social media, email, or links, and can be exported or embedded into web pages.

    Pros

    As a product manager I found myself often times just just needing to throw together a simple wireframe/mockup and it's harder than you think to just find something simple and straight forward to get that done. Cacoo allowed me to use the full product (with a couple of exceptions) right away and then naturally it's what I thought about the next time I needed to do something similar. Eventually I got to the end of my free pages and the cost made it possible to easily upgrade.

    Cons

    - Grouping images. There is no straight forward or easy way to group images and assets unless I am totally missing something.
    - Keep adding shapes- I think there is a really good start in shapes but you should keep adding shapes and working on the filtering system to get to those shapes.

    Easy to learn and use, Cacoo let you make fast and great diagram for any usage.
    Nice to make mockup, especially with linked items that let you have a full interactive mock of your app.
    The software is also accurate enough to make some graphical mockup
    And as you can export them as PDF with link, you can even share them with everyone!

    The collaborative tools make this even easier and open Cacoo to a whole new set of usage.
    As its easy to use and share, you can have a very nice whiteboard to share with remote collaborator when brainstorming.

    And last but not least, the versioning system let you edit as far as you want any diagram without the fear of losing anything in the process :)

    Pros

    Easy to use. Powerfull. Got some great features.

    Cons

    There is really nothing I can really complain about on Cacoo. Expect the fact that the very old diagrams made with the very old flash engine are not upgradable to the current one. That's really all.

    Overall, Cacoo has been very good to me. Putting together unique flowcharts and diagrams featured quite heavily during our project conception phases. Cacoo is also extremely easy to use, and getting new team members to learn it competently took all of a few hours. It has been a very useful tool to have in our portfolio.

    Pros

    Cacoo allows me to share links with other team members to source ideas on collaborative projects. And they won't even have to log in to access the shared session, the link grants them direct access. And considering our teams are almost always on the go and sometimes have to work on borrowed equipment, it has been an extremely subtle but very practical solution to several incidents of delayed input from collaborators.

    Cons

    I had no major issues with the app except that I thought they could offer a lot more creative options for diagram features.

    Cacoo provides a clear and easy way to produce diagrams describing complex technical solutions which are then understandable to less technical stake holders

    Pros

    Cacoo provides an incredibly easy to use platform for creating in depth analysis and design diagrams. The interface is intuitive mean no real requirement to train users to access features and be able to quickly produce business ready design artefacts.

    Cons

    Until Cacoo rolled out google SSO, logging into the product was tesious as it would bounce you from NuLab to Cacoo credentials. However now that is resolved I have little to complain about.
