Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Creating super-smart to-do lists, intern management, and sales leads lists has been huge.""Monday.com has provided a centralized and easy-to-use area for my team to store all of our information and collaborate together.""The newest feature of "My Work" is my favorite.""There are many incredible features, however, the ability to tag each other in comments, mark out progress, and get alerts through the app keeps us moving forward.""We use the status column quite frequently and the search bar to easily find specific customers and orders.""Before signing on with Monday, we had no idea what the total value of our book of business was, and keeping track of renewing policies was very difficult.""Pretty much everything is customizable and easily editable.""The most valuable aspect of the solution is the fact that we can make the tool as we want, in the way it is the most useful for us."

More monday.com Pros →

"Has a powerful workflow engine that allows creation of workflow complexities and processes.""Micro Focus Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) has a very strong workflow engine."

More Micro Focus Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) Pros →

"The dashboard feature is the most valuable aspect of the solution.""Smartsheet is easy to use.""The dashboard and the layouts are quite good.""The management aspect is the most valuable. You can also prioritize tasks and then view tasks by priorities as passports.""The solution has subtasks and a rollup.""For doing project plans what was really valuable is the ability to do a predecessor.""Smartsheet does a really good job of creating Gantt charts. Export to Excel feature was also very useful.""We like Smartsheet's workflows, automation, and low-code capabilities. I don't know of any other project management tool with low-code functionality designed for project managers."

Cons
"Now, we are using a cloud option and then we send the link on Monday to the other team members. It was too slow and with some bugs sometimes.""It would be quite cool if it could connect to my Outlook calendar and put the project deadlines in there.""A little more customization on the UI would be good.""In my main table, I changed sometimes the timeline values mistakenly. That should be prevented via a smart warning or some sort of coloring.""I would love to be able to have a chat option with Monday.com's IT so that if I'm looking to add a new view or experience to our planning boards, they could easily talk me through the best option.""Monday, the service, can be improved with even greater integration and configuration.""We have difficulties playing with automation.""I struggle to use the mobile version of Monday.com."

More monday.com Cons →

"The user interface is very, very old and is missing some functions, such as, for example, re-do, follow, and share functions. The UI is not good.""The solution can sometimes be a little inflexible and a bit caustic."

More Micro Focus Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) Cons →

"Lacks the ability to edit attachments within the solution.""The dashboard is not user-friendly, it needs improvement.""I would like if Smartsheet allowed more formulas in its sheets. I don't think working with formulas is as intuitive as it is in Excel. I use Vlookups and index matches in some of my sheets, and I had to find an outside consultant to help me build out those formulas.""You were forced to create a new tab rather than add another sheet.""They provide a limited number of sheets which is not enough.""Maybe the solution could be a little bit more flexible.""The long-term timelines could be improved, especially the visuals on the projection Gantt chart.""It already has a really powerful Export to Excel feature, but it can have an Excel add-on. The way to set up single sign-on wasn't too easy in the beginning, and it was hard to get hold of customer service. They should make it easier to set up SSO. Smartsheet's customer service also definitely needs to be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "I wasn't involved with the licensing, but I believe it's negotiable."
  • "The solution is quite inexpensive. For example, we pay $8,500 for 75 users. It's somewhere around $100 a user, approximately."
  • "The project manager would be responsible for any licensing fees. As an end-user, we just follow suit."
  • "Fees are paid monthly per user."
  • "The price is reasonable for the number of users we have."
  • "I am using its free version."
  • "We tell others it's about $2200 for a ten-person plan and it can be adjusted; it's easy to scale."
  • More monday.com Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "We have an annual license, and it is fairly priced in comparison to that of other solutions."
  • More Micro Focus Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "This licensing is straightforward and they charge per user."
  • "Its licensing is on a yearly basis. I was responsible for negotiating the price with the Smartsheet team, but I don't remember what the price was. Its standard license probably was around 5,000 to 6,000 a year. The enterprise version is significantly more expensive."
  • "Smartsheet only requires licenses for project managers. When we were using Asana, we had to purchase a license for everyone who wanted to access their tasks and use the system. That gets costly fast. It was one of the main reasons we left Asana. As Asana and these other tools scale, they become way more expensive."
  • "There would be more extensive usage if the solution were cheaper. It's really expensive right now, and that's why we provide a few licenses for admins. The rest of them are just users without admin privileges."
  • "I would assume there is a licensing fee. I don't think that it is free."
