Pros

Email notifications are effective and clear. Icon personalization is a nice touch.

I liked the inclusion of the Wiki as well, and I like the tiered subscription model they use, making it easy to find a level of feature availability that suites your team's needs.

Backlog has helped make the learning process smooth for me. As someone who enjoys lists, this site is great.

Pros

At the end of the day, Flowlu is a great project management tool that is worth using. The team at Flowlu has gone out of its way to make this app as comprehensive and powerful as possible.

Jigar S.

The support team is VERY responsive and know their product well. For users who want a more advanced set up, they have great tutorials and tips on how to make Flwolu work best for you.

SV

Flowlu's capabilities are similar and the pricing is better. The ability to navigate my team and my clients through the sales process with ease is vital to my business.

Alex M.

Cons

I think Backlog shoud list parent issue and issue has no parent issue. About issue has parent issue, you can hide and when user click on the arrow, it can be showed.

ĐH

Đặng H.

The only thing that I would say that's negative is that it runs slow at times but I believe that's a result of our environment.

Thomas B.

Nothing comes to mind at the moment as something to dislike.

CF

Carissa F.

Cons

Initially, I was concerned with receiving recurring invoices, estimating, project management, and figuring out how to get customers to pay by the invoice.

MI

Mohammad I.

The main problem is that most of them require an admin with developer background for the initial setup and customisations. Flowlu just simply works without any installation needed.

AS

Alexei S.

Missing Client portal (already working on it). Multiple languages / possibility of translation.

Flowlu

Gets out our small IT team

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

Negligible and intuitive interface without overloaded functional. There is a module agile. Passed to it with a paid and complex jira, the functionality is quite sufficient for our needs and easily configured. Quickly log tasks in the backlog, sprints are created, the pages do not hang. There is a sorting of tasks by folders using the drag & drop method. Convenient filters on several parameters, which helps to find the right task when there are several hundred of them.

Cons

No auto-link category to the tasks, when you create it in a folder, you have to assign it manually. If you forgot, look for it at the end of the list. There are subtasks, but there is no check-list.

Vendor response

Thank you for your feedback Anna! We will upgrade Flowlu Agile Projects App using your suggestions!
