Overall Satisfaction with is primarily used by our IT department, and most heavily leveraged by our software engineering team. We leverage for high-level resource planning and scheduling, product management and road mapping, agile project management and sprints, KPI
tracking, executive summary reporting, transparency, and cross-functional/inter-departmental collaboration initiatives.

***Update: is now in use by multiple departments and teams outside of IT as their primary project management, async collaboration, workflow and tracking tool.
  • Product management
  • Project management
  • High-level road mapping and project sequencing
  • Resource management and allocation
  • Proactive monitoring via automations and notifications
  • Stack-incorporation via integrations, especially Slack and GitHub
  • Flexibility to adapt to most business processes and collaboration workflows
  • You have to experiment with some hacky workarounds to effectively run Agile sprints
  • You almost have to build out your dashboards first, then build out your board schema to fit to minimize re-work when the boards can't quite power your dashboard requirements
  • As your board schema and needs evolve, there's no easy way to retroactively apply those improvements to all your existing, relevant boards--this problem increases as your number of boards increases
  • Some quality of life/craftsmanship improvements might be in order for "power users" such as a ctl+f for full screen shortcut, or obviously missing dashboard widgets like "count of items in group"
  • Severely limited intensely manual reporting capabilities at scale
  • Severely limited automations and batch actions for mirrored columns, and to some extent, for subitems as well
  • Customer service feels very corporate post-IPO, and pricing model heavily favors when scaling now
  • Once dialed in, we can kick off a new project in 10 minutes by cloning the right board schema, so huge time-savings when turning up new projects that need tracking
  • Proactive monitoring--especially automated notifications to check in on delegated or impending due tasks--means I can stay well informed without having to look through boards or dashboards when time is at a premium, yielding more time savings
  • The team has largely taken over their own project management, organically, which leads to yet more time savings
  • Transparency is huge; we share our boards up, down, and sideways so everyone always knows exactly where our team is at without having to ask
  • Makes it easier to predict when resources will become available, yields planning power and efficiency in delegation and tasking
  • Makes it easier to automatically, proactively detect when a team or individual is blocked or otherwise needs help, the value here is minimizing idle time and frustration, leading to a happier team
  • Interestingly, 4 years in I've noticed adoption seems to be polar: either all-in or ignore it exists provide you a fully loaded a'la carte tool box and a blank canvas; it is what you make it and it bends to your will quickly and easily. I planned my teams' entire year in advance and got them collaborating within the first two days of onboarding into 8 of 10 because it can be very clicky and automations to improve UI deficiencies are often triggered late or require a refresh to see.
Support has been responsive and respectful. We haven't experienced many issues; most of what we've been in touch with support and our CSM for were feature requests, so we can't speak to this much. That said, we reported llama widget lag on a large dashboard once, over a year ago, and had it patched within a couple of weeks. That's something!

***Update: Since IPO, customer service has shifted to a very corporate-feeling exchange
Uptime has been phenomenal, only a few outages in 4 years and only one that impacted our day to day. Board automations have been very slow at times, enough to cause pain. Per support, this has been a known issue for years and remains lingering to this day 8/8/2022.

Do you think delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with's feature set?


Did live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of go as expected?

Agile sprint tracking support is lacking, but improving with every release. That said, if is a good fit for how you plan, track and evaluate your standard work, or you don't have your work standardized yet, it would be hard to find something better. Highly recommended for administrative, product, project, and team management, especially for small to mid-size teams that don't want the massive overhead of something like Jira, or yet another tabular-data-centric solution like Smartsheet (which several other departments at our company use, and find very useful). I love the automated proactive monitoring options and having the ability to secure or share tracked initiatives at a very granular or global level. If filled the gaps that make Agile sprints challenging to track, further aligned their roadmap with community feedback, made mirrored columns usable, and improved reporting at scale, I'd give it a 9.

Not Rated & Collaboration organically empowered people to become their own project managers, for one. We typically have projects and initiatives tracked at four levels: 30,000-foot view of all projects sequencing, timeline and status; 10,000-foot view of team-specific projects, timeline and status; project-specific sprint boards; and dashboards to track progress and KPIs at all three levels. This provides transparency and summary reporting at varying levels of access tailored to every level of the org chart, enabling everyone to do their job more collaboratively and efficiently.
10 has everything we need; we've had it for years, and apart from full Agile sprint support and some nice-to-have quality of life improvements, such as a full screen shortcut, it has worked phenomenally well for us.

Evaluating and Competitors

Yes - Asana. Simply put, Asana can't do what can, but can do what Asana can.
  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
  • Product Reputation
We needed something with extreme flexibility to fit our standard work, business processes and collaboration workflows and not the other way around. was surprisingly quick and easy to set up and onboard the entire team. We were running full speed ahead with by the end of day two.
We leveraged our very comprehensive software evaluation matrix and implemented concrete pilots with the best in final candidates. I wouldn't change that.

Relationship with

Before the IPO, this was a 10. Since the IPO, we add seats yearly and go through the same used car sales-feeling new vibe at, which feels much more corporate and profit-first now where it used to feel people-first. They told us on a call once "sorry, we're more focused on bigger accounts than yours now"
Same as previous, post-IPO corporate culture took over.
Expect to lose any grandfathered in arrangements despite being a loyal/growing customer for years, and costs to increase significantly YoY especially if usage gains any traction at your org. Expect to need the enterprise plan if you have any significant need to control access and permissions in any meaningful, long-term sustainably capacity.
