Great tool for organizing and prioritizing requirements

Score 8 out of 10

It was used only within the digital department to manage the roadmap of the banking app. It was used to document high-level requirements and prioritize features.
  • User story mapping feature allows users to easily ensure features are not missed.
  • Screen design annotations inbuilt into feature document.
  • Product roadmap can be sliced and diced in different ways.
  • Wish there was a way to export a graphical view of the story map.
  • Sometimes the side navigation panels get in the way.
Useful to keep a centralized repository of all requirements. Ensure you have clear product ownership in place.

Craft.io Review

We were using Craft.io to organize some of our games in a more product-focused way. We were using Craft to map the story mapping for our games and to understand and prioritize all the features that we wanted to release in some prototypes. After some time using the tool we changed for a more traditional project management tool.
  • Craft is built to digital products developers, so its workflow is great.
  • It has a very nice interface and is a beautiful tool.
  • It has a great workflow, but it is very little customizable.
  • The tool is not so easy to use, so you have to take a time to get to know it.
Craft.io is well suited for medium to large digital product teams that have some experience with the tools and features of the agile and lean models. Users that are new to those methodologies can have some difficulties understanding the platform. It is less appropriate for small projects too. It's a great tool but I think you can shape a project management tool to your needs in theses cases and it will work better.

Craft is a great tool to get the most out of Invision

We use craft in many ways, but we primarily use 'Craft Sync' as a way to sync our work from Sketch to Invision, but also as a way to share design work to other departments that might be stakeholders in the projects. It helps solve a significant gap in collaboration by instantly allowing for both sharing of life designs, as well as feedback through Invision by the other stakeholders. We also use 'Craft Library' as a way to quickly generate brand guidelines and share symbols libraries and sticker sheets.
  • 'Sync' usually works flawlessly in syncing my artboards to Invision. Once you set up the plugin, I can easily forget about tinkering with any of the settings - it just 'works'.
  • 'Library' is pretty great for generating a style guide from my design doc. Clicking one button makes magic happen, and creates a super succinct document for me to share between teammates and other teams.
  • 'Data' also works wonders when trying to approximate 'real' data into a static design. It turns the painful job of having to fill in designs with 'real-world' data a piece of cake. It helps me validate rough designs using an actual approximation of real content.
  • Craft frequently crashes - either the plugin for Sketch, or Sketch itself. Sometimes I have to turn off the plugin completely in order to be of sound mind that things won't crash. But frequent updates usually take care of any short term issues here.
  • The 'Stock' option is great to grab a quick image for a design, but I would love to see the functionality in here expand to even more options, more services, and more filters so I can get what I need even faster and more accurately.
  • 'Library' works great in its own ecosystem, but updating symbols and the like is somewhat manual and time consuming. I have to constantly ensure everything that needs to be in-sync, stays in-sync.
Craft is really well suited for any size design team - I have used it within a team of 3, and within a team of 30.

It helps with collaboration within the team, and between external teams through 'sync' with Invision.

It increases efficiency of using Sketch with things like 'data', 'duplicate', and 'stock'. These tools not only make designing faster, but also more realistic, allowing us to 'test' our designs sooner.

Superior CMS for custom websites

Score 10 out of 10

Craft is our preferred CMS for small business and org websites. Craft provides superior flexibility, extensibility, and ease of use for both developers and users.
  • Design-agnostic templating system. No themes. This means you can use whatever HTML, CSS, JS you want, and integrate it with Craft.
  • Versatile field types, with 3rd party plugins providing a bunch more. Everything from plain text to address, color picker, date/time, file assets, one-to-many relationships, and more.
  • Control panel with clean, responsive UI makes content updates easy for clients.
  • Could use a more robust implementation of rich text editor.
  • Some functionality that requires plugins, for example, advanced field management, should be part of the core install.
  • It should be a bit easier to brand the control panel w/logo and color scheme.
Suitable for mid-size to large websites (20 pages+). If you have a massive project with dozens or hundreds of content contributors, complex editorial process/workflow, are tied to a non-Linux platform (Microsoft Server), you may want an enterprise CMS like Episerver. If you need a small, cheap, theme-based, basic website with 5-15 pages, you'll probably go to WordPress.
