For IT companies, this is a great documentation tool. It helps if trying to save information for specific clients and for providing access accordingly. It's easy to use for editing so beginners shouldn't have to difficult of a time in using it. We used to use WIKI and that was much more complex then this.

IT Glue out of the box has all the basic tools to document a client environment and the customizable flexible assets mean your documentation and relationship mapping options are limitless. However, getting ITG set up in your organization requires a significant amount of time and effort and a culture shift to be sure that the data remains current. Everyone needs 100% buy-in for it to work, otherwise, they will stop trusting the data and stop using the product.

IT Glue has been a great tool for us. Finally, a provider has gotten it right in providing the flexibility needed for IT documentation for managed service providers. Our firm moved to IT Glue over a year ago and has greatly benefited from its features and resources, and continual new features added. At this point, we're heavily steeped in the solution with it integrated into our client onboarding systems, and much for the better, compared to prior systems we used. We opted not to use the password storage part of IT Glue (we're using a separate utility for this), but IT Glue can do that, too.

  • Flexible Assets are custom questions or forms that you get to create to keep the kind of documentation that *you* want. Our team has done this, and have developed a comprehensive system in our documentation that is better than anything we've ever had.
  • Tagging. This feature is so helpful when interlinking related items in the documentation system. IT Glue makes it so easy to tag other configurations, including printers, firewalls, phones, etc.
  • Public sharing of knowledge base articles. Often our clients need to know how to do something. We can add pictures, step-by-step walkthroughs that save us and them a ton of time.
  • iFrame embedding. There's some flexibility to the web pages that have been helpful for putting other things, such as Cognito Forms in.
  • Communication/roadmapping on their support enhancement forums has been lacking.
  • At this time, it appears that key words in flexible assets are not as searchable as they should be. More search functionality in general for existing documentation would be good.
If you are a managed IT services provider and want to keep organized and flexible documentation for your clients, then IT Glue is a great fit. It also syncs well with our ConnectWise PSA, which we appreciate.

If someone is looking for a documentation system that is not specifically for IT support, then probably look elsewhere.

We use IT Glue as our documentation platform. Our initial setup involved manually migrating thousands of pages of documentation out of our old system. There were some automation steps that we could have taken, but we decided to do it manually to preserve formatting and to clean up years of old documentation.


  • Excellent visibility
  • Easy to see if we have fully documented a client network
  • Able to share client documentation with client in a secure fashion
  • So far we have enjoyed the functionality of ITG with one exception:
  • The search feature is severely lacking. We have thousands of articles in this knowledge base but the search window is about 1" wide and only shows the first few words of each article. Within our system, those first few words are often the same "SYSTEMS: How-To...". If we are searching for a system, we will have no alternative but to manually try to find this document by browsing through folders within ITG.

  • The functionality that would make this a killer app for us would be a dedicated search page that displayed results like a Google search page.
  • Ability to export all client documentation if the client moves to another provider.
Without the search functionality, we will not be recommending this software/service. I am hopeful that ITG will respond to what seems like a pretty simple request, otherwise we will start the tedious process of looking for another documentation system.

We love how easy IT Glue is to use to create and organize new documentation. We use It Glue document procedures configurations. Unfortunately, there is one major drawback when it comes to the ability to search. If this could be corrected, I think we would be much more pleased with it.
  • Organization by category or customer.
  • Editing is very easy and the ability to attach images and documents is wonderful.
  • The ability to link to other documents and related configurations is very handy.
  • The search has limited display space and is pretty useless.
  • An automated keyword "Tagging" function would be nice. We do this manually at the bottom our our documents now.
I would recommend IT Glue more if the search was more functional. If this were corrected, it would fit just about any company to record standard processes and configurations.
