Overall Satisfaction with azendoo

I was using azendoo to track my personal projects for my program getting a Master's Degree in graduate school (assignments, to-dos, practicum to do's) as well as my to-do list for my job as a social worker. I had things sorted by category based on which list/project I was working on at the time. I was the only person in my office using azendoo to track my projects as no one else in the office was actively looking for those apps.
  • Categories - Azendoo sorts to do lists into workspaces in a way that was relatively helpful.
  • Expandable - there are lots of ways to apply/implement azendoo that makes them useful and flexible to those after a productivity app.
  • Shareable - while no one at my office adopted it, the option to share tasks/progress was helpful.
  • Not cost effective - I can get similar features for less.
  • Clunky - my phone/web apps did not always sync together perfectly.
  • Premium features in azendoo are some features I can get for free in other apps (Evernote, Asana, etc).
  • I found myself frustrated at some of the costs to upgrade for features and found better outlets.
  • It wasn't totally necessary as I was the only user in the office.
  • It was useful, but it was also another thing to manage, and it was easier to just use Evernote's list feature in the end.
azendoo is a different tool, meant for a different project type. While it's a good program on its own, Evernote ultimately had all I needed as a single employee/student is the only person within my workspaces. I did not need to network and as such, I did not find it applicable. Later down the road in a shared office, I might feel differently.
I think Azendoo is suited well to small office tracking projects and tasks together. The shared projects/calendar use is helpful and can make work easier if everyone uses it in a similar manner. The ability to add things from other sources (Dropbox, Evernote, etc) does make it a useful platform because you can integrate other things into the app well. The visibility and shared spaces provide good accountability and follow up for work being done.
