Overall Satisfaction with Samepage

We use Samepage in a somewhat limited capacity, mainly to facilitate easy collaboration between colleagues in one specific department living abroad or working remotely. Our main concern was being able to share documents simply and with minimal emailing required, and for someone managing a project remotely to be able to show clear progress and collaboration needs with others.
  • The "Pages" layout is extremely helpful to keep many different kinds of files, comments, etc. in one place and on one project. Basically it enables you to work on a project in real time, instead of having one place to put documents, another for chat, etc.
  • The "Tasks" feature furthers the seamlessness of the app, making it easy for collaboraters to see the relationship between tasks and projects.
  • The "Call" feature is a huge win for communicating all in one app and being able to see the project and its tasks and progress all in one space.
  • It can feel hard at times to get a real big picture view of all the projects and pages happening at the same time. It is easy to drill down or zoom out on specific pages, but it doesn't feel like you're getting a sense of overview or moving pieces for multiple pages.
  • There is really no way to have subtasks within larger tasks, and that is sorely missing.
  • It can be quite difficult to get team members up and running - there is a bit of a learning curve and it's not extremely intuitive.
  • Navigating remote workspaces can be very tricky - Samepage helps with that tremendously.
  • Samepage has cut down on the need for multiple emails about many different parts of the same project
  • Like any similar app, it requires the dedicated useage by employees. There is no fix for that.
Samepage felt the most intuitive for my style of project management, and also afforded the most amount of already-included integrations. In addition, it also felt the least cluttered of other similar apps.
Samepage support is incredibly active and responsive! They work with you from the outset to make sure you are set up for success and understand all the features.

Samepage is great for:

  • Those who need to show very drilled down processes and steps in projects.
