Art B.

next level chat tool

2021-02-13

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.

The Diet Soda of Communication Apps

2018-11-08

From receiving notifications about new messages that when I go to read causes the app to freeze and crash, to being told while in the app there's a new app update and then not finding a new mobile update in my mobile app store.

Pros

The desktop/browser version of the product is useful and dependable.

Cons

The mobile app experience is really quite painful.

A very good communication tool

2019-03-09

A very good communication tool

Pros

We are using flowdock for communicating with our onshore counter parts. It helps faster execution time without any delay in getting a reply compared to email. All team members will be on same page which is a great advantage.

Cons

Search is a bit confusing and should be better if we have more filters

Interesting yet simple IM client.

2019-01-15

Pros

It is a web-based solution, so it can be accessed from anywhere.

Cons

Embedding web-content is not as well implemented as on other solutions (slack).

It worked, but wasn't competitive

2020-08-25

It was the convergence of tools and conversation, so effectively it did help.

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

I always had to use the browser version b/c the app crashed and was unreliable.

Too Clunky

2018-11-14

Pros

It was a charming feature to an otherwise very uncharging product.

Cons

Can customize anything, including colors or icons for your different groups, the design looks very dated, the mobile app glitches constantly, and messages hardly ever load.

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

2019-01-29

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

Pros

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.

Good solid product

2018-11-26

Pros

There is a lot to like - it is easy to streamline and organize team communication.

Cons

Not sure why the mobile set up is not as easy as the desktop - browser or app.

Great Value Slack

2019-05-07

Pros

It has a dark theme. But now other software does too. So not really worth anything.

Cons

This is the "great value" (read: Grocery store brand) of software.

Searching is Difficult, but No Other Complaints

2018-12-08

Pros

I like that you can custom sort your Flows in the order you need. I like that you can close images/gifs. I like how all threads show in the flow, and they are color coordinated to distinguish them.

Cons

The search tool returned too many results.

Flowdock

2021-04-13

Not worthy, some tools are cool due to constant use, I prefer more user friendly tools which works more well for me

Pros

+ Instant messages, you can create groups to connect with. + Logs are also a good part of the product. But most of the stuff is offered by other products as well.

Cons

+ Definately needs a better and user friendly Interface. + Needs more interactions with other tools like ca agile within a single product so anyone don't need multiple UI's.

If Flowdock is cheaper than Slack for your organization, go with it.

2019-02-24

Pros

It's the same features and functionality as Slack with the brand recognition for a cheaper cost.

Cons

Nothing, it works well at a cheaper cost. Which is efficient and okay for most small-medium organizations. I'm not sure how well it would scale with support.

Everything all in one place (communication, integrations, and notifications)

2019-07-18

Pros

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

I have only used it a short amount of time, but I found that it can kind of get overwhelming when you have a lot of flows in the organization. For example, we have over 200 flows setup and it is a little bit hard to know which flow to open to find what you want.

Good Value Software

2018-08-16

Pros

Good software and makes it easy to communicate with my team at work.
