Overall Satisfaction with Magnolia

Magnolia is used at our company as our enterprise CRM tool. Our business partners are able to update their websites, after receiving appropriate training from our team, as well as create new pages, all on their own, without requiring the assistance of our limited developer resources. It has cut down drastically on development time and allowed our developers to take on additional projects that would not have been possible without this tool.
  • Workflow process works great, allowing for editor, reviewer and publisher roles.
  • Easy to use interface.
  • Flexible components that work for all types of sites.
  • Some previously working functions, no longer work in the current version of Magnolia (email notifications & show changes).
  • Being able to see who the last person that touch an asset would be helpful.
  • Magnolia desperately needs reporting capabilities from workflows.
  • Helped launch sites quickly.
  • Helped reduce developer involvement.
  • Allows the company to stay competitive in today's market.
I think that Magnolia has a good user interface and allows for flexibility for our developers to be able to create templates that meet our customer's and business partner's needs. Our business partners love being able to be in control of their sites and being able to update them whenever they need to, without waiting for their updates to be prioritized.
For the most part, we don't have any issues with Magnolia's performance. The pages load quickly and requests are processed through the workflow in a very timely manner. I think that reporting capability is really lacking though in our version of Magnolia and that is something that I hope will be addressed in the near future.
I love the workflow and how easy it is to use. I also love being able to preview all changes made on the site and see exactly what it will look like live. I also love the flexibility of all the components such as sliders, and carousels, and video capabilities, which allows our business partners to showcase their products really well. These websites that are created using Magnolia help us reach our sales goals and objectives.
WordPress, Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365)
Magnolia works well with sites that are not frequently updated as well as those site that are updated almost daily. It works well with sites that need to curate information to large audiences. It also works well for news stories in blogs.

I can't really think of any scenarios where using Magnolia would not be appropriate.
