    Pros
    It was the convergence of tools and conversation, so effectively it did help. I always felt like developers could get more out of Flowdock than roles like mine, in Sales.
    Our first collaboration tool that saved our mailbox capacity and encouraged our team to instantly resolve any clarifications without waiting for too long.
    It also has the ability to search across those integrations which is great when you are on support and need to find something that happened in the past really fast.
    Cons
    You are constantly barraged with notifications since it does not have granular notification options. This software is horrible.
    I always had to use the browser version b/c the app crashed and was unreliable. The iOS app was probably worse than the Mac desktop app.
    Lack of multi-individual direct messages. All messages of all threads showing up in the flow timeline.

    next level chat tool

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    we use to have internal team chats + extra alerting from 3rd party services.

    Pros

    I like the way how Flowdock connects the team chats with external alerts that can be setup easily in the app.

    Cons

    it doesn't look as friendly as in slack, but again - way better than teams ;-) also the mobile app is slow sometimes.

    Good IM but needs a little more to compete with other IM alternatives

    Reviewed 5 years ago

    Very good IM option, user friendly, promotes communication, just needs to include more functionality out of the box.

    Pros

    The threading system in flowdock is very intuitive, the thread replies are not hidden within the general chat, but instead they are color coded, so you can quickly identify what/who you are replying to, and at the same time, your reply is visible to everyone in the chat, not only to the people in the thread, which promotes communication between every contact in the chat. There is also an option to add hashtags to the messages, that is very useful when you have to search for specific things in the chat history.

    Cons

    A lot of functionality in flowdock comes in the form of an integration, you have to add plugins in order to do other things, like screen sharing, that could be already in the tool, like its competitors do.

    Enhanced Team Communication

    Reviewed 25 days ago
    Pros

    We used Flowdock's threads to organize our project discussions, which made it easy to find past conversations and kept everyone informed.

    Cons

    During a busy project phase, I found it hard to keep up with the constant stream of notifications and missed some important updates.

    It worked, but wasn't competitive

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    It was the convergence of tools and conversation, so effectively it did help. I always felt like developers could get more out of Flowdock than roles like mine, in Sales. I just used it for chatting with colleagues.

    Pros

    It did offer instant communication and it's best feature (compared to competitors) was it's notifications - which isn't really saying much

    Cons

    The app was very unstable on my Mac. I always had to use the browser version b/c the app crashed and was unreliable. The iOS app was probably worse than the Mac desktop app. That was a bummer - the app is vital.

    Flowdock review

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    Easy to communicate and resolved communication gaps among the team. Everyone in the team is aware of what’s going on in the project and it helped our team to avoid some status meetings which saved all of us time.

    Pros

    Our first collaboration tool that saved our mailbox capacity and encouraged our team to instantly resolve any clarifications without waiting for too long. It helps our remote team to collaborate easily with all other teammates.

    Cons

    I don’t think a desktop version exist now for Mac. Browser based version is not so user friendly. Support by CA technology is limited now for this tool.
