Clarity & Feedback with Ally

Used weekly for less than 6 months
Reviewed 2020-04-07
Review Source: Capterra

Ally allowed me to document my work, keep my manager informed, and set me up for success when it came time for my OKR review. I was able to point to each OKR and discuss my process. I would never have been able to do this before.

Pros
I like the check-ins and the Slack integration. It makes it easier to do your record keeping.

Cons
Users have to rely on Administrators to set up the projects. I would prefer to create a project for my overall work to be aligned to, rather than individually listed. It doesn't connect the individual's OKRs with the team if the Admin doesn't set it up to do so.

Ally overall has been great with just minor dislikes

Pros
The ease of use and setup of Ally has been great. Being able to connect to both Salesforce and Tableau has been one of the biggest benefits along with checking in through Slack. The customer service team is very responsive and helpful with questions and have been a pleasure to work with so far.

Cons
The software we were using had a better dashboard display to easily show the top company Objectives. This was beneficial for company meetings. Our CEO struggles with this part of Ally but it is really the only issue we have had.

Helping Accomplish My Goals

Used weekly for 6-12 months
Reviewed 2020-07-29
Review Source: Capterra

Pros
I honestly like how simple and easy it is to use and function! I have only used one other program for OKRs and it was complex but Ally makes their website simple and functional. It it easy to check-in and put if you are on track or behind and even add notes. I enjoy that you can add notes! I try to add a small goal that I will accomplish during the week and then in my next note say I accomplished this and this week I am working on finishing this project. I believe Ally keeps you motivated to stay on-top of your work because you have your weekly check-ins.

Cons
I don't like how what I thought was an objective Ally says that it is not aligned to any objectives but I thought it was an objective on its own and that I was allowed to have another objective on its own.

Weird UI

Used weekly for less than 6 months
Reviewed 2020-03-20
Review Source: Capterra

We are supposed to be tracking our entire company OKRs with this tool. I find that I hate the UI so much and am so mystified by it that I start avoiding the weekly update OKR task

Pros
I like having a tool to manage the OKR process. I like the check-ins, teams, sub-teams, individual and team OKRs

Cons
Weird UI, I am constantly struggling with it. It needs to be significantly easier to setup and manage OKRs, users and team branches in the tool

Review Source: Capterra

Pros
%age tracking on task level and overall picture on where we are, is what I like the most.

Cons
The pricing is on a higher side, it could have been lowered, as at this price, we might not be able to get it adopted for whole org.
