Stackby

This is great for running challenges as you can hold and manipulate the data however needed. I use it as an advertising CRM very effectively. Displaying info where a calendar is involved is very useful as it means I can see the dates in date format rather than text. The scenario where it's less suited is where you need two sheets or ways of displaying a sheet next to each other (as far as I've found) - Such as the way Grist displays widgets.

Taskworld

I don't know anything about pricing, but if Taskworld were an inexpensive choice I would say it works fairly well for small to mid-sized companies with complex workflows. It's great for managing tasks that move through multiple-stage pipelines that aren't necessarily linear. However, depending on the price it's not worth the spend for all the technical difficulties it brought. Our company was relatively small (60 employees) and yet we constantly faced "server issues" and bugs and even software-wide crashes that seriously impacted our ability to do business. If you choose to go with Taskworld, be sure you have a solid disaster-management plan in place just in case, because chances are you'll experience bugs on a weekly basis

Taskworld

  • Task Management - It's super easy to track progress on Taskworld. If your team keeps up with it, you'll never wonder where in the project someone is, because it's marked.
  • Project checklists - Having these to organize out smaller portions of the tasks makes everything so much easier and helps keep track of progress.

Cons

Stackby

  • How a stack is displayed after embedding into another page using their provided script. Currently, it shows the rows in a completely different layout.
  • Currently, no support for custom domains.
  • Cannot customize cell colors. Currently, can only change colors for predefined texts within a cell.
  • Lack of integration with Google ads or YouTube ads. Currently, only integration with Facebook ads exists (although I believe more will be added later).

Taskworld

  • Taskworld crashed ALL THE TIME. It was so frustrating. You'd notice certain functions not working (like adding an additional location or reassigning a task) and then the whole thing would go down. We lost at least 3 individual business days due to Taskworld acting up.
  • We often requested features and bug fixes that took forever to be resolved. Taskworld staff was responsive, but issues took too long to resolve. As a small example, the GIF functionality of chat and task communication was down for weeks with no explanation.
  • Small glitches were frequent and obnoxious. We had to clear caches all the time in hopes that we'd be able to use Taskworld the way it was intended. There were many times employees didn't get notified of their "@ mentions" or weren't seeing notifications at all. It was a nightmare of death by a thousand cuts.

Extremely responsive, helpful, and friendly support (unlike many other SAAS teams out there).

I can't say too much about the support we've gotten from Taskworld, because we haven't needed it. There haven't been any issues we've to have to reach out about because it works too well. Given the quality of the application, I'm sure the quality of the support follows.

Alternatives Considered

Stackby

Airtable - better all round than Stackby but way more expensive (actually not all round - Stackby you can actually backup unlike Airtable)Infinity - bought this and wished we hadn't. Its data structures and terminology are super-confusing and it's really hard to set upNotion - not strong enough as a database but very lovely to look at!

Taskworld

We used Basecamp very briefly before switching over to Taskworld. Basecamp wasn't nearly as dynamic as Taskworld and served more as a static archive than an active workflow software.
