monday

Monday is well suited to groups or teams that work on tasks with minimal detail if you just need to give updates on projects quickly. This is especially true if you need more reporting and information on tasks, you may want to look elsewhere. This is not to say it cannot be used as a main project management tool, because it can. However, we have found that we get more out of our teams by using other tools in tandem with Monday.

Pros

monday

  • Monday is great for creating boards and "pulses" which are basically tasks that can be assigned to different people. Using a horizontal view, the task can be broken down into different tasks with different ways to show progress on the task.
  • The clean interface and color coding within a project or board make it easier to process information and give updates to tasks assigned. In some ways, it feels like a digital whiteboard with sticky notes that provide different updates to tasks.
  • Monday's pulse boards have customizable views. I like what someone said, its like an Excel sheet but highly customizable, you can also change the views to show the kaban view, timeline or standard view. It is modular and works well for multiple teams working on projects at the same time.
  • Monday's templates save you a lot of time and work, you can pick what works for you and make it work for you. It's good for beginners and advanced users in that regard.

Cons

monday

  • Notifications can be a pain, you have to go into personal settings to shut them off. Also, there is an inbox and notifications bar, so that is a bit confusing to handle. I found myself dealing with emails and notifications but once I had shut them down everything was good again.
  • Another thing that is a bit of a pain point, is there is no way to share a pulse to another board. Other apps do have a way of doing this but that is not the case here. You have to create the same pulse and provide individual updates to it which feels like a lot of work for teams who work on multiple projects at a time. If there was a way to share a pulse between boards, it would be a huge time saver.
  • My biggest gripe tends to be mobile apps. I like Monday's app but I feel it is not the best implementation especially for on the go collaboration. If the app had a better portrait view and didn't feel like an excel sheet that you need to zoom out of to look it, it would be a winner. The thing though is I do not know how that can change.

If you have a basic understanding of the terms and exist in a project management field it will be very intuitive and easy for you to pick it up and begin setting up workflows and tasks. Someone who doesn't have familiarity with how to plan a project may be confused on how it is intended to be setup.

We signed up for the accounts. Created the accounts. Ran the trial version and tested it live while we were running multiple projects and found that it was fitting our needs perfectly. When the trial ended and we were asked to purchase the full version, we did. We have found other ways to use it and it's a breeze.

Alternatives Considered

DaPulse provides a better user experience than Trello, in my opinion. The previously stated benefits of ease-of-use and at-a-glance visuals are far better. It also provides better tools for collaboration and project tracking.Asana is not as user-friendly and requires more setup labor. However, Asana's integrations have worked better for our team, as well as project and deadline alerts. Asana's task list format is also superior.
