Overall Satisfaction with monday.com

  • Improved collaboration.
  • Time savings.
  • Enhanced creativity, new ideas.
I use Monday to manage my clients' work in the areas of digital marketing and web design. This can include limited-time projects (design of a new website), or on-going activities (social media management). Both my team and the clients' teams use the Monday boards we set. We typically set anywhere between 5 and 10 boards per project—some standards, some customized. We use the default, timeline, and kanban views, depending on needs, and use, among others, the 'updates' function to exchange and discuss the various items.

Pros

  • The variety of column types and of view types (table, kanban, timeline, Gantt, etc.) gives you a lot of flexibility and allows you to track and manage almost any type of project or activity.
  • Grouping by workspace means you can easily manage multiple programs or clients and go from one to the other easily.
  • The dashboard functionality is a nice plus to get a quick overview.
  • Visually pleasing.

Cons

  • The timeline view is a bit basic. It May not be appropriate for people managing complex projects with many tasks and many dependencies for who the timeline view is critical.
  • The first level price plan is limited and more of a 'teaser' in my view. Go to standard or pro to access a wealth of functionalities.
Once you have understood how it works, I find Monday very easy to use and very intuitive. I would give it a 10, but I reduce it to 9 because it does take a bit of time initially to navigate your way around it. It works on desktop and mobile and interfaces easily with related tools like Google Calendar, Slack, etc.
I have asked between 5 and 10 specific questions related to functionalities and found that I received quickly, via email, relevant responses. There is also a relatively rich set of tutorials and articles you can browse.
Since I started using Monday.com I did not have any uptime or reliability issues that I can remember. I did struggle a bit with adding and then removing team members from my account but that was mostly a question or understanding the process.

monday.com & Collaboration

Every board (task list, project status, issue management, idea pipeline, etc.) is shared with internal and external (client) team members working on the project. They can be assigned to and manage individual tasks or entire boards. The status is visible to all and the notification function of Monday makes it easy to see evolution in status. The 'update' function allows creating discussion streams on individual items. The dashboard function makes it possible to create overviews that can be visible to all. The kanban view is also a way to discuss status.
For small enterprises (up to 10 team members including clients), I rate it 8/9 out of 10. For larger projects, I have not had the experience to use it.
Extremely flexible and easy to use. Provides easy visibility to all project or team members of status. Can create dedicated discussion streams using update function or with Slack integration. Great variety of possible columns. Supports elements and sub-elements. Good notification function and calendar integration.
