Overall Satisfaction with Teamwork Projects

We have been using Teamwork Projects for several years. It works really well for us and the types of projects that we do. We have several different teams (Operations, PM, Technology) that work on projects and our projects span across several months and sometimes years. This product has given us great visibility into our projects and at what stage they are at. We have been using another product for source saturation but have recently been testing teamwork projects to replace that tool.
  • Quickly able to see when a project is behind and at risk.
  • We meet 2x a week to review open tasks and identify bottlenecks, etc. We do this review easily in the the platform using custom date ranges.
  • It really helps individuals see what is due and what is upcoming and help them prioritize what they need to work on.
  • You have the ability to build different task lists for the different stages of the project.
  • It is awesome that we can build task list templates. For example, we build it out with all of the possible task needed for a scanning template, create it and then can easily edit out the items that are not needed for that project. Great tool that makes people think through that project and steps are not missed.
  • Wish that we could get a gantt chart for our resource saturation.
  • Wish that we could get resource saturation at not only the individual level but also for equipment. We are testing a workaround by making the printer an individual - no comment on this yet.
  • Wish they had cost base-lining.
  • Unable to see budget to actual. You can set hourly rates for individuals but we do a lot of printing, mailing, data collection services that are material costs. You can record an expense - but no viability in the system for budget to actual costs.
  • It gives us the ability to look at what is currently on deck as well as what is coming. This is helpful for scheduling teams and temp labor.
  • Help organize employees and teams on what we need to be working on.
  • Reduces risk to our projects because it is very rare that a step is missed. We actively have lessons learned and update our task template to prevent them from happening again.
Teamwork Projects was a better fit for us. With Basecamp, we had to set up tasks as milestones to assign due dates. At the time we reviewed it, you could assign tasks to milestones but would not have a date associated with it; we lost the ability to see if we were on target or not. Sheets was too simplistic for the projects that we work on. Some of our projects have 5-10 different tasks lists and sheets didn't organize if very well.
For the cost, this has worked really well in giving individuals visibility into their workloads and management visibility into all active projects. If you are not willing to track budget vs. costs outside of the platform, this is likely not a good fit for your team. If your priority is visibility at the project level - making sure everything is on time; this is a great tool. Feature Ratings
