Overall Satisfaction with monday.com

The entire team is using monday.com to manage internal projects from engineering to design.
  • Ease of use - Very easy to use for non-technical people.
  • Ease of management - Easy to manage and configure.
  • Flexibility - It includes features to easily switch between different management paradigms such as scrum, kanban, XP.
  • UI: The UI is not easy to get used to, there are sidebars, inboxes, groups, projects that all feel the same, they almost have no difference either in functionality nor in appearance.
  • Loose workflows - Most workflows are too loose. Anyone can create, delete, change or move tasks, groups, and boards. This almost depends on how you have configured the app but it is also monday.com guiding you to do it that way, there is no convention on how to set projects up.
  • No relevant impact that I know of.
The UI makes the app feel like it is a less capable system, most controls and interfaces seem unprofessional.
Several features make no impact on my workflow, namely the inbox. Some of the UI elements take more screen real estate than they need. The sidebar for example: I'm on a project with 5 boards and I really don't think an entire sidebar is needed to display those, I usually collapse the sidebar because it gets in my way.
The task detail view is also a bit odd to me. The only relevant information on it is the task title, but if you want to know the status, ID, author, or anything else about a task you will have to go back to the board view because the detailed view won't have those fields available.
I have not needed support from them at this point.
monday.com includes the basic features from most project management apps: task management, collaboration, boards, messaging and so on. Also, the app excels in making multiple technical tools available in a single app, like Gantt, Kanban, and task management. Where you cannot compare monday.com to professional project management software is workflows and access control - those features still seem unpolished and far from industry standards such as JIRA.
monday.com is well suited to small and medium-sized projects where a tight workflow is not needed. If you only need task management monday.com will suit you well. If you need end-to-end project management including sprints, task workflows, and user access control, other tools will suit those projects best.
