Projectplace (or perfect place) great for inter-department workflow

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review

Pros and Cons

  • The boards are great for organizational purposes- and the visual aspect and drag and drop functionality is easy and efficient.
  • Creating different workspaces within our organization is a huge benefit of using Projectplace since we are a two-sided company (publishing and marketing/branding).
  • The card system is brilliant and makes moving along magazine elements from editorial to design departments flawless.
  • Some of the different views/stats seem a little cumbersome and overcrowd the dash
  • In a recent update the ability to drag and reorganize cards in the My Overview setting went away. The Group by dropdown is helpful, but I wish I was still able to rearrange the cards within each workspace/due date/etc.
  • With how I use Projectplace there aren't really a lot of cons!

Easy Gantt

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Is web-based so you don't need to install anything.
  • It's very easy to manage it. It has no complex functionalities, straight to the point.
  • You can choose to use just one part of its many functions: Gantt or boards but you can use more available functionalities as you need to.
  • Simplified/compact view of Gantt diagram.
  • Is a little bit fragile: one click and you are moving a task or dates. It could be useful to have an edit view and a read-only view, or at least a rollback changes option.
  • A task view of the Gantt with the comments. The comments are a little bit buried inside the Gantt.

Pros and Cons

  • A set of different tools to manage meetings, documents, members, Gantt charts, etc. all integrated into the same framework.
  • Document version control.
  • Desktop application to locally store and update files.
  • A meeting platform functionality, such as GoToMeeting or Skype for Business, would be very valuable.
  • The possibility to integrate with other platforms, like software development tools or repositories (GitLab), would be nice.
  • Maybe a collaboration hub similar to Slack would be useful.

Projectplace: Good Surprise on a collaborative tool designed for agile

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • It shows the tasks in a time schedule view, allowing the user to switch between the agile interface of cards and an overview of the tasks and its correlations.
  • The possibility of having a dedicated document storage area with easy access gives a friendly way of finding what you need.
  • The mobile app is a good tool and an easy way to get on track with your projects.
  • Importing cards to the board could be simpler and easier, like copy and paste.
  • The name of the columns could be customized, allowing more flexibility to the organization of the board.
  • Additional information for the cards such as cost (money) would be desirable.

Best Tool for Ticket Management System

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review

Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • UI is very user-friendly and easy to make groups by options according to the status of a card.
  • We can have the option to follow the cards so that if any action is done, by any user on that card, we can get updates.
  • For a Project Manager, it becomes easy to track the status of cards.
  • User must have the option to see the reports according to action he took on any particular card.
  • Reporting needs to be detailed so that we know which action should be taken on which card and by whom.

Enterprise Architect's perspective

Score 7 out of 10
Vetted Review

Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Boards view is fantastic for contributors to create, assign, and track tasks.
  • My Work view is good for at-a-glance information but could use some work.
  • Dependencies for board items are a bit unclear. I have completed tasks in the My Work view that show as overdue, presumably because other portions of the tool aren't configured or scheduled appropriately. Dependencies could and should drive do this then that type activities, but there doesn't appear to be any direct workflow or linkage between them other than at a superficial level.
  • File collaboration requiring an agent is cumbersome. Why isn't there integration to Sharepoint or another more seamless document repository? This platform creates another competing source of truth for documents which is a problem.
  • I believe the reporting interface could be improved - our PMO is currently experimenting with yet another solution to create better at a glance reports from a burndown perspective. Planview has all the raw data so this is re-work.

Pros and Cons

  • Copy Kanbans in Kanbanboard.
  • Is great to Forward an email and Kanban automatically appears.
  • There is a lot I can add to each, emails, charts, images, documents, check lists and comments.
  • Is a great way to capture my time work, and specify each activity.
  • I would like to delete Kanbans, alternatively I edit them with another info.
  • In time sheets I can copy all activities from last week, but It would be great to choose which ones when I need to copy and/or delete some of them. A delete option is specially needed when adding activities, I often choose a wrong one.

ProjectPlace? Project Right!

Score 9 out of 10

Pros and Cons

  • Labels, Dependencies, Checklists are really awesome aspects of each card that let you customize the work appropriately for the task at hand. The way the unused features are hidden allows each card to really fit the work and not become overly complicated.
  • Using swim lanes to lay out the cards allows us to use one board where other tools would make us use multiple ones. We can lay them out by label, or assignment, depending on the project or task at hand.
  • The labeling could use some work. I'd like to be able to change the order, add more colors or styles to the labels.
  • The reporting could use some work. I'd like to be able to download the raw data over time, so I can get a better sense of how things are moving. The charts are good but hard to dive into without being able to see the backing data.

Projectplace, one of the more unique project management tools on the market

Pros and Cons

  • I really the like version control aspect
  • There are a lot of document storage capabilities in an order that flows and makes sense
  • Love the flow of the Kanban board set up
  • Sometimes when you look at the Kanban board set up, it almost appears too busy, compared to competitor products like Basecamp
  • I've had issues in the past where when I add a new document it replaces an old one with it instead of keeping the old and the new files.

Pros and Cons

  • Web-based platform easy to use - mobile app is great
  • User feedback to improve Project place and monthly updates is a strength
  • Central repository for internal and external team members is very helpful
  • Reporting and Dashboarding - Initial presentation of the solution had us believing reporting / dashboarding was all set up ready to go when in fact it needs to be set up by the user.
  • Training documentation mainly all video and online - helpful but challenging for users that prefer manual type instruction
