There are endless tools similar to Chanty, I don't know if they are better or worse, so far we have tested this platform and it is really comfortable to use, it fits exactly what we need for our work and I can recommend it if you are looking for something simple to use without so many complications.

  • Filtering within files.

  • It offers few integrations, there are complementary systems in the hands of a panel of activities with which we would feel more comfortable to work, a communication and planning system also needs a calendar and a file manager to be able to have them at hand.
  • Customer support is not the most efficient team, very rarely have I been able to receive answers that offer a solution to my problems.

as already explained this software only does branching... the rest is really poor and basic

Usability
Abstract
Abstract has a difficult learning curve. If a feature-branch workflow is new to you, then it will take some getting used to. They make a lot of updates to the interface and these feature releases get ahead of their documentation. They rely heavily on an excellent customer support team and are present on various Slack channels to help design professionals with issues.

Support Rating
Abstract
Abstract by nature is complex and has to respond to whatever changes in Sketch. So there are frequent issues. Support can be slow to respond and are not always helpful, but they are quick to find and patch the bugs. Overall, it's not the best support, but it hasn't been detrimental.

I have been sent quite a few emails about functionality and support on a pretty regular basis, which is great. I have not had any need to contact support as the platform is pretty simple to use, it was easy to download and install and I have not encountered any bugs or other issues so far.

I purchased and administer Abstract. It was requested by our design department who evaluated it.

We really do our work very little with google tools, so it was not a completely comfortable space, it has little customization, and its interface was not very comfortable. We tried Chanty and without a doubt it fit exactly what we were looking for.
