Likelihood to Recommend
I've found myself recommending Nifty to other business owners as well as for personal use. I've personally found it to be invaluable when it comes to:
Daily / Weekly / Monthly / Quarterly recurring tasks Creating templates for company processes such as new product creation, marketing strategy, on-boarding, quarterly goals, content management Having forms zapped into a new task from multiple locations ensuring they're never overlooked Having clear milestones and timelines for projects Communicating on projects, tasks, and just in general Assigning different components of projects to different people Creating prior requirements that must be completed before completing the task Read full review
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)

Read full review 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 Read full review Cons Time Expense could be improved since we cannot edit the previous/past time logs entered. Lacks expense management and Purchase order management functionality Newest product updates are not always stable and I had to reach Nifty's support team a couple of times in the past to fix the issues with new updates e.g. our document management and meeting integrations had to be re-authorized Read full review 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.

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.

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.

There's no comparison. Nifty does what all of these do all in one place (with the exception of
's community aspect with hashtagging - not sure if Nifty can do this, never tried) Nifty even has the ability to import directly from many other platforms - I've personally imported projects from
, saving tons of time in migration.

Workplace by Facebook is so much more than just a project management tool like
. 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.
