I have been using flow for 4 years for all my companies and my personal life

2017-02-02

If you manage large teams, there is no better accountability software than flow. Unlike emails which get lost, and mindless meetings where everyone makes empty commitments, Flow is our system of TRUTH.

Pros

The UI/UX, user management, notifications.

Cons

Integration with email not good enough.

The Best Tool For Small Teams

2017-04-25

The biggest difference over other project management software options, is that everyone actually uses this. Flow's UI makes sense, the experience is comfortable and intuitive, and the organization of information fits with how teams work.

Pros

Ease-of-use; Simple to understand and utilize, but the right mix of features to effectively manage a range of projects

Cons

Slow to integrate with 3rd party tools and software

Among the best project management tools I've used

2018-05-05

After using several other project management tools, such as Teamwork and Trello, I can say I'm a fan of Flow.

Flow has revolutionized the way our organization manages projects from conception to completion.

2018-01-09

Pros

When it comes to task management and project collaboration, it's one of the easiest tools I've used.

Cons

It does seem that there are new updates frequently (at least for the desktop app). On some occasions, it has caused login issues.

Flow is really fantastic piece of project management software, it has changed the way we do things.

2018-04-25

Optimising the project management process.

Pros

The interface is very intuitive once you get the hang of it and it really allows you to get a hollistic view of the whole project lifecycle.

Cons

There can be a bit of a learning curve on getting to know the software. Perhaps better learning materials could help mitigate this.

I love that everyone on my creative team, including clients, can easily use Flow without training!

2017-07-19

At long last my search for the right project management software is over.

Pros

For small creative agencies who have been searching for the right project management software, Flow provides a Goldilocks experience'it's not too much, it's not too little, it's just right.

Cons

It's a small complaint, but within the notes of each task, any updates to that task are automatically visible.

Our team lives in flow. It is what keeps us organized.

2017-06-01

Pros

The cloud-based file sharing gives us a TON of storage and allows us to access files from anywhere to keep projects moving.

Cons

The search function is an area of opportunity.

Flow has been a gamechanger for me in keeping up with tasks.

2018-02-01

Flow saves me time. which in my opinion is the most valuable benefit there is. It allows me to focus on what I'm good at and I don't have to worry about keeping all my projects organized and trying to remember what projects are due when.

Pros

You can upload attachments, coworkers can see and comment on your activity, offer suggestions or edits in real-time all within Flow. it's almost like having a Facebook timeline for your project!

Cons

If I had to give one complaint about Flow it would be the user interface, if unfamiliar with the program and how it works it can be easy to get lost in the many layers of tabs.

Easy to use project management software.

2018-08-24

Pros

The cost is great for what you get. It is easy to use and well organized!

Cons

I would recommend a single home page that displays all notifications, chats and everything in one easy to read place - like a newsfeed.

Flow is team task management and chat in the Goldilocks Zone. Not too big or small. Just right.

2018-02-06

Clarity across all my team's projects. More productive workers. Better team building and higher morale.

Pros

I love that task management and chat are under one roof.

Cons

It's a little weird that there are two phone apps (one for chat and one for tasks).

I have been able to easily communicate and get work done

2017-08-28

We can all track it from any device no matter where we are, and collaborating is a breeze.

Pros

Task tracking is very in-depth, but at the same time intuitive.

Cons

My only complaint is the lack of integrations. A core part of our workflow involves Github, and we really would love to see the Github integration this year!

Clean, Efficient & Essential

2017-01-25

We have a smaller company and was looking for a task management system that didn't feel too heavy for our needs.

Pros

It's clean, simple to understand, customizable for your needs and they consistently make smart improvements without changing the focus of the product.

Cons

kind of feature.

A bit clunky, but does the job as a task management tool for teams

2018-07-23

Pros

You can tag other users to loop them in and assign tasks, you can set up subtasks underneath projects, leave comments, etc.

Cons

It's particularly lacking in ease-of-use. I feel like things always take me a little longer than they should in Flow because I'm not sure where to go in the app. If I were more seasoned using it, that would be less of an issue, but it speaks to a need to improve the UX if it's not clear how to do things naturally. I don't think it's better than Asana at anything, and Asana is free for up to 15 people.

2017-10-12

Flow has never let me lose sight of what projects I have coming up next.

Pros

Best task management software I've ever used.

The mobile app could use a bit of work, as sometimes it's glitchy and not very user-friendly.

Helpful tool for managing tasks, especially ones that have repeatable steps.

2017-06-09

Pros

Duplicating a project is great although I would love a feature where tasks can have dates that calculate back from the deadline.

Cons

Some less savvy users went from having too many notifications to too few, therefore getting discouraged from using the tool.

I have been using Flow for a month now, and it's great to track projects and hold teams accountable.

2018-05-15

More seamless project management, and a better way to organize projects.

Pros

I think it is user friendly, aesthetically pleasing, and just a great project management tool.

Cons

It did take a little while to learn how to navigate all the different options, but once I did, it was pretty seamless to use.
