Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The way to manage cards as a KANBAN, is really easy but when you need to track hundreds of projects, you need to be very clear in which way the things must be completed.""The most valuable features of Jira are the dashboards where we see all the features lined up with the release dates in the portfolio view, it is very good.""Its stability is very reliable.""Portfolio's most valuable features are that it's user-friendly and customer-centric.""Jira Portfolio is useful for tracking time and hours. It's easy to manage, create tickets, and change the status of delivery reports. It's not complicated.""The documentation is very well done.""We have found the solution to be stable.""The most valuable feature is that it fits very well into an agile framework, and it is especially helpful with the planning aspects."

"All of the features are valuable. Especially, creating tickets for projects and assigning workers. Having trackable conversations and archive items for reference. We offer our customers a live update of their project by sharing a board directly with them. This allows them to comment or submit documents directly to Monday.com.""The structure it has, the sites, the boards, and how easily you can transfer information from one place to the other is great.""The ability to track dates and times we need cases to be completed has been of great use to my firm.""It has helped us to divide work by assigning tasks and forecasting how busy we will be in the future.""Automation is definitely my favorite feature as it makes our lives so much easier.""My favorite feature is time tracking.""The ability to attach files to boards and truly make it collaborative is the most important aspect of the solution.""The coolest thing is the way the files or documents can be uploaded to subitems."

Cons
"JIra is very poor at reporting.""We would love to be able to have direct contact with Atlassian. Currently, they are not working directly with West African countries. We are considering using JIRA Align, but when we contact them, they say that as we are in West Africa, they don't directly work with West Africa.""JIRA Portfolio could improve new implementation because if I want integration for the complete wide frame tools it cannot provide any wide frame tools.""It would be nice if it could provide an end-to-end solution for a project.""The HR aspect of the solution could be improved.""If you want to generate a report for individual usage, it's difficult.""The query features should improve in JIRA Portfolio. For example, if I would have to create my own queries for looking into something such as what business features we have released last month, or the last three months, I don't know if I can do it. The solution requires a certain level of expertise.""Portfolio is easy to scale, but we've had some difficulties with it regarding compliance and support."

More JIRA Portfolio Cons →

"It would be so cool to have live chat with team members when needed instead of having three different apps for work-related tasks.""I'd love it if there was an instant messenger built into the product so I could talk with other teammates live in-product, as opposed to needing another solution like Slack, Google for chat, or Signal.""Load time and glitches do occur on the site.""Some of the automation is having some technical difficulties.""There are occasional glitches in the system that cause the website to be down temporarily.""While I appreciate the templates, some of them are extremely complex and not as tailored to non-profit work so they required quite a bit of customizing (but worth the trouble).""It would be good if we could have the option to choose custom colors for the status fields and groups so we can make some boards more branded.""Some boards are just buggy."

    Reviews from Real Users

    monday.com stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Two major ones are its task status feature and its ability to integrate with external apps. PeerSpot users take note of the advantages of these features in their reviews:

    Ben D., Front End Developer at a marketing services firm, writes of the product, “Their flagship feature, what used to be called the pulse, is great. Pulse offers great management. Being able to see everything at a glance and check task status, is wonderful. They use subtasks and the simple aspects of task management have been really helpful.”

    Another PeerSpot reviewer, the Head of Projects at Smart Media SA, notes, “The boards offer an amazing and clear view of my tasks, campaigns, and progress. Automations especially with Slack and Outlook help with keeping my team up-to-date always. Graphs and charts are valuable for reporting purposes and to track progress made. Workforms/surveys are valuable and a very cool added feature.”
