"Clarizen's strength is reporting. Aside from reporting, I also like the ability to create customized workflow and custom actions. The workflow rules are handy. For example, you can create custom fields and dependent picklists.""I like the project management solution. It's really nice.""Clarizen Slide Publisher has helped increase transparency and communication with project stakeholders for us."

Cons
"It would be nice to have a general section at the top of each group.""The web page can be a bit buggy at times, especially after I switch to a different tab and then come back to the Monday site after leaving it idle for a few minutes.""A message center that is similar to texting or Facebook Messenger would be useful.""Sometimes automation is delayed, which can lead to duplicate items being created.""The iPad version of Monday.com doesn't have the same functionality.""Load time and glitches do occur on the site.""Sometimes the limit of parts on a board (500 units) can inhibit growth.""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."

More monday.com Cons →

"It could be more user-friendly. I think it is too overwhelming, initially, in terms of possibilities and so on.""If I start customizing too many things, Clarizen tends to get really slow in our environment and especially if I'm tunneled in an environment, like if I'm connected to my VPN.""I felt like the slide publisher isn't that user-friendly. I think it wasn't that easy to use or to figure out because of formatting constraints, or maybe we need to get better at understanding some of its limitations."

"The interface can also be customized to fit and accept many tools for better performance and customer service improvement."

Pricing and Cost Advice

  • "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."

    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.”

    Planview AdaptiveWork (formerly Clarizen) enables PMOs and professional services delivery teams of all sizes to gain real-time visibility across all their work, automate workflows, proactively manage risks, and deliver greater business impact.
