    Kanban Tool

    Kanban is well suited for a fast-paced working environment for larger teams who want continuous communication with users. Kanban is good for rapid development and daily meetings for updates and statuses. Kanban is less suited for smaller teams or groups who don't require collaboration and constant communication with involved users. Kanban is time-consuming and it takes additional effort outside of your regular work to maintain and manage the tool.

    Workplace from Meta

    Well suited: - leadership communication. When our CEO posts a video to all company - it always gets the highest engagement- recognition/achievements posts - live streams for education, knowledge sharing - we are a company of 12000 associates and there is no other corporate channel for us to gather more than 500 people in one place.Less appropriate: - sharing some very targetted messages - it's impossible to do at Workplace without creating a group. So we use email channel for such targetted communications- instant communication like in a chat (probably it's less appropriate in our specific case because we use MS Teams for such quick communication instead of WP chats)

    Pros

    Kanban Tool

    • A card for each data object documents and controls the whole migration process
    • Cards for subtask like meetings, workshops and so on
    • Organization of daily work by email integration
    Wolfram Soelter | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Workplace from Meta

    • Bring groups of people together to share info, stories, updates, etc.
    • The chat app is pretty decent.
    • Workplace Live is a good large-group meeting broadcast platform.
    • It's pretty intuitive to use for anyone who's used Facebook.
    • It provides different levels of "security" for groups, allowing you to have open, closed, and "secret" groups.
    • It's easy to paste images into your posts and comments, without having to necessarily go through the process of saving an image as a file, etc.
    • It has search capabilities for finding old information.
    • It's available for both desktop/laptop and mobile devices.
    • It's secured to allow only those within the company to see company-related info (but it also has a few inter-company groups, which can be useful, too).
    • Workplace Chat has the ability to set it to Do Not Disturb.
    • You can set notifications, including email notifications, if you want to be alerted to new activity in your groups, etc.
    • You can use Markdown to format your text

    Cons

    Kanban Tool

    • There isn't a strong UI on the tool. Customizations can be difficult to make.
    • There isn't a very robust communications component on the tool to facilitate conversations—it's WYSIWYG.
    • The mobile story isn't fully developed yet. It could stand to be stronger on mobile devices.
    Chris Carpenter | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Workplace from Meta

    • It would be helpful if a review confirmation checkbox was able to be placed by files that needed to be read or reviewed. Along the same line, approve, review again, etc. would be helpful checkboxes to add by files, proposals.
    • The layout is clean but suffers a bit from the center column width with two sidebars and a lot of empty space. It almost looks like a going out of business sale retail store where you notice the empty shelves. Workplace feels a bit bare at times. I think some good design modifications can help. Now on mobile, it is a great layout. I am addressing specifically the desktop browser login.
    • An admin control dashboard would be really effective and even more so with more users on the platform.

    We are more likely than not to renew our use of Kanban. Even with its limits, it still is a good product that fulfills our needs.

    Again, this is a strong tool for software teams using Agile that are distributed across multiple geographies. It can be good for co-located teams too, but there are better platforms on the market like JIRA that provide a more built-out story.

    Having to download multiple apps just to use the tool is very cumbersome. Facebook would have make this better by wrapping it in as a main feature within their app, but having to use multiple apps to see discussions and walls is so frustrating.

    This is the best tool I had a chance to work with- since I started to use it I saved a lot of time and I made my work go smoothly.

    Workplace by Facebook is an excellent fit in respect of support and documentation. It has excellent tutorials and documentation, as well. The UI and UX are already great as it is developed and maintained by Facebook, so most of the times, there is no need for any support or documentation.

    Alternatives Considered

    Kanban Tool

    Doesn't allow to easily customize swim lanes or add multiple boards to a single view. Other products were very expensive, even for small teams.
    Mateus Stock | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Workplace by Facebook is so much more than just a project management tool like Basecamp or Slack. The ability to disseminate information to employees is easier and better with Workplace by Facebook. It can also be used for informal messaging and sharing of information. It combines the best features of both with the same look and feel as Facebook.

    Return on Investment

    Kanban Tool

    • Less man hours needed to perform our standard tasks.
    • More jobs done before deadline than ever before.
    • When compared to the other service we used, the pricing is very good. We didn't really calculate the ROI, but we have made significant savings, when compared to the previous solution applied.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Workplace from Meta

    • We can meet the project times, that with the communication in real time.
    • We provide solutions to our suppliers in a reliable and efficient manner.
    • When a business can save time and at the same time respond to the demands of customers, this translates into greater market capture of action for the company.
