"I love being able to "check off" a task by changing its status to "done." It also disappears off the list when you complete it."
"I especially like the dashboards where you can combine info from different boards into one."
"Besides the boards that we use daily to organize our information, we love the survey aspect of Monday.com too."
"The solution is more of a streamlined Slack."
"We use less paper thanks to this product."
"Shared boards help entire teams to plan out campaigns with ease and clarity."
"Being able to customize the boards to our needs as a dance studio with a smaller staff team has been very helpful."
"The handling and administration of Monday.com are manageable even for beginners."
"Broadcom Clarity PPM's most valuable feature is the plenty of modules, such as portfolio, project, resource, and time."
"There were probably about five or six metrics that we used. As a result, the groups that I supported were consistently ranked at the absolute top of the organization, as we were leveraging these built-in tools for tracking."
"The feature that I have found most valuable is the XFlow, that interface is pretty cool."
"The interfaces for project management, portfolio management, and reporting services are always helpful."
"Broadcom Clarity PPM is robust and flexible, and all the functionality sets are in one place."
"Clarity PPM's strongest features are project and resource management."
"The most useful feature for me as an implementer of Broadcom Clarity PPM is its extensibility. The tool is pretty extensible, and I haven't had any issues with it in terms of it getting used for multiple scenarios and for multiple clients where there's a need for high customization. Broadcom Clarity PPM is a very, very customizable tool, so you can pretty much implement any business process on it with no issues."
"Broadcom Clarity PPM is a high-value product that helps users become productive. It's a very stable, scalable, and fast platform, even from a self management perspective."
"The integration portion with SAP models is valuable."
"The solution has dashboards, however, you have a limited amount. You may only get ten when you need closer to 30. We often need to create many boards. For example, we might need one board per customer. If we have more than ten customers, we run out of boards available. I'm not sure if you can pay more in order to get more or if it's just a design limitation. It's unclear. In any case, they should be more generous."
"It could have a few more features when it comes to managing projects."
"They need to improve the user interface of the automation/integrations."
"It spams my inbox with many unwanted emails."
"Once timers are cleared, there is no way to recover this data."
"In my main table, I changed sometimes the timeline values mistakenly. That should be prevented via a smart warning or some sort of coloring."
"The tool is beneficial for some businesses yet prohibitively expensive for others."
"I would like to see Monday.com create a Work Package Template which could be created and adjusted as per each project but could also be amended via an app on site should this be required."
"Whenever that second instance of Clarity came about, it was overwhelming even to people who were accustomed to working with program management tools."
"In terms of what could be improved, the end user interface could be improved to be more intuitive, because we sometimes have issues with customization. Sometimes we are not able to customize everything for the end user's interface, and they require more customization. We should be able to perform a deeper customization here."
"One of the things that have always been a bit painful is the integration with reporting utilities. The current integration is with Jaspersoft, and there are a number of difficulties with that. If you're using out-of-the-box fields and everything, it is a bit slow and clunky. It has a drag-and-drop interface for the users. On the backend side, there is a report designer. They haven't given or allowed me any training on it yet. So, it has been a bit limited in its features. On one of the earlier report utilities, they had one called Actuate, which had VBA as its base programming language, and you could do quite dynamic things behind the scenes, whereas the Jaspersoft interface seems rather locked. So, you're limited in your options. Being a programmer, you like to have room to be able to invent and create rather than just being limited to a few selection boxes."
"Broadcom Clarity PPM should improve how the reports are being generated and contracts management."
"Clarity PPM would be improved by developing better support for the Agile framework."
"One of the major pain points for me when it comes to Broadcom Clarity PPM is the new UI. The new UI is very good in terms of functionality and the drag and draw features, but it's not very responsive. When I say that it's not very responsive, what I mean is that sometimes, the tool is not very user-friendly. For example, a user saves a value on the form, but the tool doesn't give any indication to the user that the value has been saved. Some users are moving from the classic UI to the new UI, and end up getting confused because on the classic UI, when you click "Save", it'll save the information and you'll get an indication that it was saved. With the new UI, it auto saves the information, but it doesn't give an indication in the form of a popup box that "this form has been saved", or any type of message indicating that the information was successfully saved. It's been confusing for users who move to the new UI because of that. The users don't understand when the values are being saved or not being saved, even if there's an auto-save feature in the new UI."
"Broadcom Clarity PPM could improve by adding advanced reporting in the tool. There are a lot of out-of-the-box reports, but I would like to see more advanced reporting."
"In the future, I would like to see integrated Agile features and better integration with Agile tools."
"It would be valuable if SAP integrated seamlessly with some products like Jira and Bitbucket."
