ActiveCollab

Scenarios where ActiveCollab works well1) ActiveCollab works well for small teams specifically T&M teams.Its invoicing feature is unique & can make your life easy.2) It is very easy to use & posses good range of filters like on the task list, we can drag/drop tasks, Filter by assignee's,
tasks lists, due dates, or completed tasks. 3) It has some simple but awesome features like when you're in
the middle of writing something i.e a comment on story and get interrupted,
it retains what you wrote.4) It allows you to tag team members in threads of comments to grab their attention, its really needed when teams are distributed. Thus helping team members to collaborate easily & stay on same page.5) It integrates pretty well with other web apps like quickbooks , Slack, Trello, HubSpot, Zapier etcScenarios where ActiveCollab did not work well1) Tasks can not have multiple assignee's here so if two members are working on same task it did not allow you to reflect that.2) Sorting capability is not their under invoicing3) It did not work well for larger teams4) Search option is not very detailed & you may end up wasting lot of time searching one particular bug or issue.

ClickUp is excellent; it has been very intense in project management, which has given us a constant follow-up of activities. It works very well, and we recognize when any project is deficient. It helps to have a lot of experience in the tasks.

Pros

ActiveCollab

  • Great for project and task assignments, project workflow and communications.
  • Solid web-based platform that doesn't require software downloads, also includes great mobile platform.
  • Great reporting tools for managing billing, estimating, project workflow and other essential project details.
  • Allows for both the agency and its clients to interact on a single platform using role-specific permissions.

ClickUp

  • This software organizes and categorizes different projects in an excellent manner. It allows color-coding of different categories of a project as main headers with subtasks underneath
  • It allows sorting and filtration of tasks with priority. This enables the project team to work on urgent tasks first
  • It supports mass editing of projects. This is achieved through the selection of multiple project lines, changing their due date, setting their priority and performing other modifications at the same time

Cons

ActiveCollab

  • Individual comments cannot be linked to. This makes it more difficult to reference a comment or question.
  • Unnecessary features cannot be turned off. Since we use it primarily for communication, it would be ideal to turn off tasks etc. that are not needed or be able to move discussions as the first screen.
  • There isn't an easy way to set up different projects under the same client.

ClickUp

  • List Templates - They have list templates, but the due dates get all mixed up whenever you use them. Right now you have to set specific dates and when you create the list using the template, you just set the first start date and all the other dates get moved according to that first date. However, usually I care more about the LAST due date, not the first. Also, they don't skip weekends or anything. I wish there was a way to set the due dates as "Day 1, Day 2" etc. and to have them skip weekends when they are created.
  • Sharing Settings - They've kind of fixed this but before you could only control privacy access on the space level. Now you can set it on anything, however, there isn't a way to share lists, projects, or tasks with clients without them creating a login. They are planning to have this fixed soon though
  • Documents and Files - You can easily attach files to tasks or lists, which is great. I would like it if you could also have an area where you could have files that pertain to the whole project, or the whole space, without having to be put in a specific list or task.

With previous tools we used, we had to conduct a fairly extensive onboarding process with any new employees we hired. ClickUp is so simple to use that we really only need a 30-minute meeting to show new employees how to use it and they're off to the races. The drag/drop function is nearly universal which makes it extremely easy to move things around and stay organized.

The support team is responsive to requests and their annual support fees are reasonable. Honestly, we don't have to contact them much. Updates happen automatically and the platform is very solid and does not require a lot of support. Documentation is good and the platform is easy to learn.

ClickUp provides all the support you need over email. The customer service is excellent. I didn't interact with the support team too much as there was rarely an issue that I needed help with. However, when I did need help they were excellent.

Alternatives Considered

ActiveCollab

I have used multiple project management platforms such as ActiveCollab, JIRA, Trello, etc. Trello has great visualization with their (Kanban Board) board system and support drag and drop functionality for managing tasks. ActiveCollab, however, does not have the fancy visualization, but is very powerful when it comes to ticketing, task management, task delegation, time tracking, etc.
Ali Zakeri | TrustRadius Reviewer

ClickUp

We evaluated several project management software and compared features but at last we settled with Clickup. Reason being, ClickUp flaunts a machine learning capability which is essential in creating accurate and realistic estimates for projects. It fuels creativity and improves team productivity which results to getting projects delivered on schedule and getting more things done.

Return on Investment

ActiveCollab

  • It has saved us a TON of money (literally thousands) in project management software.
  • It has helped us gain clients because we can show them the template of what they will see and give them access to it. When others don't have software that does this.
  • Positive impact on ROI based on the time it's saving compared to our previous PM software.
Chris Lesner | TrustRadius Reviewer

ClickUp

  • Has increased the project management performance
  • Has [allowed] us to organize day to day work in a better way thanks to its workload views
  • Has allowed us to increase clients interest and participation in the projects allowing us to invite them to the account limiting the access to only their projects
