Daylite

If your team uses only Macs, then I suggest investigating Daylite 6, which is cloud-based. We've found upgrades to be tricky, sometimes users have difficulty connecting to the data-base on the main user's Daylite Server. My opinion is that it would be easier to begin fresh with 6 than upgrading and moving our current Daylite Server to the cloud. And there's no going back, once you move to the cloud, you're committed.

Cons

  • Sometimes anyone who has touched a project still receive notification even if they don't need it
  • Having to manually enter information from other areas

  • We're using Daylite 5 and are soon abandoning it because: a. Daylite 5 is not cloud-based (6, is)
  • b. Daylite is for Mac users only, and we need a solution for our whole team
  • c. There are many "rabbit holes" that you can go down in submenus that it can be confusing

Alternatives Considered

No answers on this topic
As noted earlier, we're abandoning Daylite and moving to another project management system that a. allows both Mac and PC users b. is cloud-based. We think we could benefit with an company-wide system, and Daylite 6 won't fit the bill. Our group is currently vetting different products, and Teamwork is the top of our list.

  • Daylite has been very helpful for new employees to answer their own questions about contacts/passwords, etc.
  • We found the tiny notification bell to be weak, sometimes a project comes in with a tight deadline and we have to double-check and ask an employee if they saw the notification. More time would be saved by just chatting about the project and its expectations.
  • A huge benefit is the institutional knowledge that can be had by reading past projects. We've tracked everything, so the history is there.
