Despite being a group of 15 people, we are located in different offices around the city. In addition, most of these people lack IT knowledge. As such, we needed a good tool for online collaboration, but also something that was easy enough for beginners. Everything regarding the group, schedules, meeting notes, tasks, projects, plans, and documents were tracked using our Samepage account. It helped to bring together items spread across a number of different online services.,Flexible: Samepage pages can assume a lot of formats to suit your needs Easy to start: creating an account and starting a page is easy enough even for non-technology oriented people Very attractive prices for the Pro plan,Samepage allows to upload and view PDF files, but not markup or comment on the pages inside them. Such feature would be extremely useful There is room for usability improvements. The interface could use more contrast and color to create a better visual hierarchy. Only three templates fail to show the beginner the true potential of the different formats pages can take on Samepage. There should be more templates and examples.,9,We were able to be more effective in organizing events and research meetings Samepage allowed the collaboration of different researchers on writing scientific articles The pages in Samepage were used as a collaborative draft to create the final report of our research,Igloo, Quip and Basecamp,Adobe Photoshop, MindManager, LucidchartDon't Need IT To Get Everyone on the SamepageWe have been looking for the holy grail of project management for YEARS. We wanted something that could be easily understood by all staff members as well as allow us to communicate with our clients who are not typically tech savvy or interested in learning one more piece of software to manage us. Everyone in our company uses it. We've introduced it to many of our clients.,All communication is literally on one page, so you don't have to learn its navigation. Cuts the learning curve. User interface is very simple. WYSIWYG. The mobile app works well and I like how it syncs with the desktop version. Just discovered the Dropbox sync. Very cool. Works way better than Dropbox at sharing files!,My biggest wishlist item is email integration. We previously used Insightly and that was an amazing feature it had: customers email you saying, "Do this thing for me," and you could click and have it upload and assign the task in Insightly. I'd rate SamePage a 10 if it had that. (But Insightly had too many other nonstarters for us, so we bit the bullet and changed to SP). While I said navigation was easy, sometimes it's "too easy." You can overthink what you're trying to do and the program is not flexible like others are. There's pretty much only 1 way to do anything. For example, sometimes it's confusing which parts of a page are shared and which ones aren't. Wish that was ID'd better Don't like having to scroll to the bottom of the task list to add a new task. Since we primarily use SP for tasks, wish it had a "create task" button that could be clicked from anywhere, not just in its task section,7,We all manage our own projects and bring in colleagues when we need help. SP has allowed us to reduce all the other ways we were communicating previously (Skype, G-Docs, email) and have one place where we all go to find out what's going on and stay on deadline. We're still figuring out the best way to adapt it to our needs. The lack of task assignment from Gmail or Outlook is really a missed oppty for this software. Seems like everyone else is doing it, so not sure why they are dragging on this. It has been requested by users multiple times.,insightly, basecamp and Swiftpage ACT!,Google App Engine, Hatchbuck, Skype, Xero, Authorize.net, FirstData,10,Yes

At my organization, we started to use Samepage as a collaboration hub for our health research group. Despite being a group of 15 people, we are located in different offices around the city. In addition, most of these people lack IT knowledge. As such, we needed a good tool for online collaboration, but also something that was easy enough for beginners. Everything regarding the group, schedules, meeting notes, tasks, projects, plans, and documents were tracked using our Samepage account. It helped to bring together items spread across a number of different online services.
  • Flexible: Samepage pages can assume a lot of formats to suit your needs
  • Easy to start: creating an account and starting a page is easy enough even for non-technology oriented people
  • Very attractive prices for the Pro plan
  • Samepage allows to upload and view PDF files, but not markup or comment on the pages inside them. Such feature would be extremely useful
  • There is room for usability improvements. The interface could use more contrast and color to create a better visual hierarchy.
  • Only three templates fail to show the beginner the true potential of the different formats pages can take on Samepage. There should be more templates and examples.
Samepage is well suited to situations:
- when there is a need for ongoing collaboration between people
- when these people lack tech skills
- when there is a need for sharing and showing different kinds of media

Samepage is less appropriate in situations (since there are better tools for those particular uses):
- requiring more robust communication tools
- when the objective is to execute a specific, finite task
- when it is necessary a precise control of version history

We only use Samepage (SP) for project management. I tried watching some YouTube videos when we first started using the program, and their way of using SP made no sense to me (education industry). So the videos weren't helpful for how we use SP, even for generalizing about tips/shortcuts. Therefore, my answer is "use SP for project management and it will be a good choice for you to keep up with project statuses."
