1. Making broad changes to data, like moving ownership of records from one user to another for a new Sales Rep or a moved Sales Rep. 2. Making broad changes to data for product changes, product introductions and such (product naming changes, product description changes, etc.). I recently had to make a change to the name of a Product Option. Product Options are a sub-object related to Product. This name change was in 22 places. Okay, 18 [is] not a lot, but to make this change individually 22 times is still very tedious and takes too much of my time. Instead, I set up my Grid with the Object and sub-Object and made all 22 changes at once with a mass change. Piece of cake. And I don't have to go back to several of the records to see if the change was made successfully (something you have to do with Dataloader). I could see the effective change all at once on my Grid screen.

I think that for a sales team that already has a digital driven culture its a great tool, and even for people that want to manage projects after the sales. But for teams that are new to digital sales tools, it may cause some deals to fall behind in the beggining, just because the usual way people work is to register what has been done and not to schedule what to do next, and there's other CRM tools that help this to be a automated requirement in the usage os the system.

Pros
Validity
  • Reshapes the user Interface into an intuitive, clean, easy and thoughtful way, meaning Salesforce can be practically used for applications that (in my Opinion) salesforce was never designed for.
  • Mass updates are a God send, Leaving quick and meaningful notes, setting up meetings with clients or upcoming calls to maintain contact, all from the same screen without information overload... a real achievement.

Cons
Validity
  • Does not allow users to create new Campaign Member records; we would like to be able to add multiple Campaign Member records to a Campaign in a Grid.
  • Does not allow users to create new Task records; we would like to be able to add multiple Tasks records related to the same user but multiple Opportunities and Contacts.

  • Perhaps individual archive boards for individual boards - sometime's it's difficult to locate an archived item to account when something is done so until projects are finished, I often leave items on the board when it could be 'cleaner'
  • More color shades for groups and labels
  • Keep adding new widgets for dashboards to provide an even greater overview

It is very simple and does not take very much or very long to understand how the entire software works. I think it took less than a week for me to be very confident in using and even teaching other people how to use the site. Moreover, the ability to be able to color coordinate every file makes it very easy to see and use.

When I have requested customer service from monday.com account the person who I spoke with was really helpful but the set up to get a hold of someone in customer service was a little complicated and time-consuming. I had to get a ticket in an email and then wait for a specific person to call me back at a certain time, that's why I gave a six.

This is the 1st inline editing product we have tested. The only reason we would ever go with another product is the price.

monday sales CRM was much more customisable and flexible for our needs. We could use monday sales CRM to enhance what we do but Zendesk basically wanted us to change how we work to their style which is not what we wanted. I also found zendesk to be extremely expensive for what you were getting.

  • Specifically for equipment tracking, we have been able to build an interactive and extensive database tracking all devices owned by the company in a predominantly remote workforce and decreased loss in that area
  • The onboarding process has been simplified and automated to communicate to all parties involved with minimal interaction. Building out an API would be next! Saves a ton of time in this process and minimizes mistakes.
  • In a start-up environment with shifting priorities, task management in monday.com makes sure things don't disappear entirely as the landscape changes.
