Lucidchart Access for Boise State Accounts

Flow chart

Lucidchart has recently changed its licensing terms.

Lucidchart is used for flowcharts and diagrams and has been available at no cost to Boise State students, faculty and staff since 2012.

Lucidchart’s Education accounts now have a limit of 10 free documents, and users will be asked to pay a subscription fee if they save more than 10 documents.

As a result of this change, Boise State is removing Lucidchart from the Google Apps Launcher in G Suite. Previously saved documents will not be deleted or changed.

To continue using Lucidchart in the future, do the following:

  • Navigate to lucidchart.com
  • Select the Log in button
  • Choose to sign in with your Boise State G Suite account
  • Log in with your Boise State credentials

(If you try signing in with your Boise State account without using Google your account will not be recognized.)

For users with more than 10 saved files, you may choose to pay for additional storage on your own, or delete old/unused files until 10 or fewer remain.

We recommend you use Microsoft Visio for diagrams and flowcharts. Visio is available at no charge on over 700 public computers at Boise State, and is also available for installation on University-owned computers.

If you have questions about or need assistance accessing Lucidchart, contact the Help Desk at (208) 426-4357 or email helpdesk@boisestate.edu.
