Cons
"The user communication aspect could be improved.""I'm unclear about the notifications feature in that I receive way too many emails.""Monday could be improved if it could be linked with Google Calendar.""The calendar selection for dates is not the easiest to navigate.""As far as I know, when I make a new entry on a Board, and I'm putting in the first piece of information, you can't just hit return or tab to the next element.""I'm unable to send messages or update any projects from my tablet or cell phone which makes it hard when you are in the field all day and can't be at your desk.""If Monday.com could increase the refresh rate of the site, that would make things a little better.""Adding more features would be ideal since there are limitations as far as scalability."

    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.”
