Pros

Consequently, you would think that I wouldn't be impressed by IdeaScale's offerings, but I was in for a very pleasant experience.
This tool is fantastic for fostering internal and external innovation. I think that the top down innovation model is outmoded and Ideascale is the best way to shatter it.
IdeaScale meets all my agency needs in fostering a culture of innovation. We enjoy the ease of use, features, and the wonderful customer service.

Pros

The managers are able to have a high-level view of how progress is going, while the team can see the daily details of each and every task. The layout is fun, colorful, and most importantly clean.
The feature that I liked the most and is the most impactful is the ability to integrate with other software applications to bring in data to Monday.com. It creates a seamless integration.
Monday.com is a great tool in my experience for smaller teams who need a robust solution to help with project alignment and goal setting.

Cons

Another platform is hard to get users to embrace... the government buys a lot of them. They die ignoble deaths.
Understanding that some are hesitant to try “new things,” my team had to be diligent in our quest to use this platform for ideation.
No channel to submit/capture unsolicited ideas.

Cons

There's no way to "dumb it down" and only display the information and screens you truly need. We had lots of views that were superfluous to our workflow.
The layout was poor and difficult to set up and manage. I tried to implement it with my team of managers (12 other people) and they did not get the idea of it, mostly because they did not understand.
The CEO wanted to be able to see a lot more detail around the various projects in my department. I was collecting that data manually and it was killing me.
