Flow

Flow is great for a team that is managing many projects with a lot of different players involved. It lets people really drill down into the projects that they are a part of without getting distracted by everyone else's work. The features like "focus work" and muting notifications are great for a fast-paced workplace which creates distractions. It is too robust for smaller teams or individual work.

Pros

  • very intuitive and simple to use
  • bug-free
  • we are able to formulate it for our needs instead of fitting into someone else's idea of what we need
  • usable across multiple platforms and devices--desktops, laptops, iphones.
  • editing in real time, and several viewers viewing screens from remote locations

Cons

  • A little more customisation of the forms would be fantastic. The interface is simple and helps avoid making problems for yourself, but being able to take out some of the white space and select different fonts or show basic formatting would be a good addition. But such is Airtable I am likely to find out with the right knowledge you can.
  • Not being able to connect "Bases" together. This can be addressed by building all tables you need in to one base and remembering you can always export the data out somewhere else if you need this level of integration.
  • If you are a larger or growing organisation, Airtables flexibility and ease at replacing spreadsheets needs to be managed (or you could replace your uncontrolled Excel addiction with an Airtable one).

  • Better integration with Google Calendar -- it could be a bit clunky
  • The mobile app didn't have as much functionality as one would like - you had to download two apps to access the features used on a desktop version

Sometimes, I have to wait a bit longer but I'm on a low priced option so I understand why. Generally, they're able to provide me solutions to my problems as long as I'm not in a rush.

Alternatives Considered

We do use Social Studio and Sharepoint for other tasks, but for project planning across a wide variety of deliverables, there wasn't enough flexibility all the time. Asana was harder to use and get into and didn't provide an easy way to adjust views/sorts.

Flow is the best all-in-one solution. It is better than Todoist because of it's more robust features and the ability for project nesting and is way easier to use than Basecamp. It is not as effective at content management as Trello or Airtable because it is not designed for those tasks. Since it is specifically built for project management, it is better than Trello or Airtable which are more multi-functional.

Return on Investment

  • It's too soon to have conclusive evidence of ROI, but I suspect our improved ability to manage our partner and donor relationships will improve, thus leading to positive ROI in the future.
