Overall Satisfaction with Wdesk

We used it for Annual Reports and SEC filing. we are a mining company Problems: word and excel version 2007 very limited, force to redo all waterfalls, graphs, tables, etc. SYNC is a problem, very limited, unresponsive software creates massive files, once exported the format gets destroyed in WORD, creating duplicated files, once imported an EXCEL file loses all graphs, 99% of formulas, and all graphs. as you sync and made edits, you end up with 2 versions of the file. WORST experience ever. Microsoft TEAMs is being by far WORKIVA
  • have a structure to follow
  • Involves the user on determined tasks
  • Basic editing of documents WORD 2007
  • Upgrade WORD and EXCEL 2007 to have same functionality of normall OFFICE 365
  • Do not destroy the EXCEL files imported, deleting all PIVOTs and GRAPHS
  • not available switch between UPPERCASE and lowercase
  • not available Search and replace ALL
  • not available redo format
  • not available to do graphs in EXCEL
  • not available elaborated FORMULAS, only very basic like sums
  • not available DESKTOP version
  • SYNC only works one way
  • Exported WORD files are massive and version 2007
  • not available PDF viewer
  • compliance
  • hability to work faster, this is not happening
  • compatibility with OFFICE 365
  • Work for longer hours
  • WDESK very slow and only basic tools
  • creates duplicates and not compatible with office 365

Do you think Workiva delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Workiva's feature set?


Did Workiva live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Workiva go as expected?


Would you buy Workiva again?


Only appropriate for basic tables and scenarios. very difficult to do graphs, forced to work double and re-do things, all editing tools very basic. SYNC tool destroys edited and formatted text. force to redo. once typing or editing loses connection and you are forced to re-do it again, over and over again. for SEC filing is a total nightmare huge files and once you save the file in your normal WORD all gets destroyed and you are forced to redo it, ending with 2 versions
