Overall Satisfaction with Flow

Flow is being used across our organization as a project management tool. As a marketing agency, it helps us all align on timelines and passing projects from one person to the next. Additionally, we use a Harvest integration with Flow to track all of our time. It helps address business problems associated with task management and time management.

Pros

  • Easy-to-use interface
  • Beautiful design
  • Short learning curve

Cons

  • Passing on a task to the next person takes multiple clicks
  • Switching from task to project view isn't seamless
  • Doesn't provide top-notch reporting
  • Positive impact: improved efficiency
  • Positive impact: easy time trackin
  • Negative impact: poor reporting
Teamwork is better than Flow when it comes to reporting, as Teamwork lets you better track estimated time and look at the workloads of different team members. However, Flow has a much more beautiful interface and easier to use. Flow is also superior with its "catch up" feature that lets you catch up on missed notifications. Teamwork is much more frustrating when it comes to notifications. Trello is similar to Flow, but with not as many features.
Flow is ideal for marketing agencies and organizations where time management or project management is crucial. It's also ideal for organizations with medium or large marketing departments. It may not be ideal for solo endeavors or in situations that require complex reporting methods. Overall, it's flexible enough for a variety of situations.
