Overall Satisfaction with Planview Projectplace

We use Projectplace as a way to manage workflows and projects within our Marketing organization. We use the workspace function to organize teams within our group (digital, creative, different business units), and then the boards within the workspaces to organize the different projects within that group. We also use the documents function as a repository for our files during each project. Our main team is based here in Silicon Valley, but we have team members in The Netherlands and Scotland as well.
  • Setting up workflows - it's great to see the status of other team members on projects
  • Locking files - I like how when a file is checked out in a workflow, others can't access it to make edits until it is unlocked
  • Organization of groups/boards
  • A lot of our work is dependent on others - content needs to be created before it is laid out on a page, etc - so I wish we could set up email alerts so that cards that are linked to each other can automatically trigger an email informing that a certain task is done so another team member can start their card.
  • Bulk assignment of cards in a project would be useful. In addition, when we duplicate projects, it would be great to have the option to push over the card assignments as well, so we don't have to assign one-by-one.
  • [We have the] ability to support remote work through projects that scale across multiple groups
  • We have large-scale quarterly projects, so the ability to save and duplicate project templates are helpful for us to keep track of tasks down to the specific card

Did Planview Projectplace live up to sales and marketing promises?

Did implementation of Planview Projectplace go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Planview Projectplace again?

Yes

N/A - I haven't used any of the support features. I haven't been in touch with our CSM, though I don't believe that they have reached out to us to discuss upcoming or new features since we have purchased the tool. The only time we talk to Projectplace is during our renewal phase.
Using Projectplace is pretty straightforward - from creating teams, boards, and assigning cards. It would be helpful to create a better workflow for cards that are dependent on the completion of other cards though.
Projectplace has been a helpful tool now that my team is working remotely. By being able to organize our projects through dedicated boards down to assigned cards, it gives our team a holistic view of the status of our deliverables. Personally, it is useful for me to see all of my tasks, and helps me with time management.
