Basecamp is basic but easy to use

2018-04-10

That said, I would rather use another tool out there, such as Monday.com or Asana.

Pros

Relatively cheap compared to other project management tools like DaPulse, Monday.com, Asana, etc.

Cons

While Basecamp made me feel "on top of it" so to speak, I don't think its the ultimate project management tool out there right now. The biggest drawback for me is the fact that you aren't able to track time against time estimates. Seems like they missed a big opportunity for this kind of tool. Also, maybe I missed something, but you aren't able to assign tasks to more than one person. Really??? Lastly, I noticed that the mobile version is not as complete as the website version. This is an area I feel like they can expand on since most of us use our smartphones for work, especially while out of office.

Good Collab Tool

2019-04-14

Pros

I found the tool good for managing and notifying an agency i was working with on an email project

Cons

I found while easy to use, a competitor like Basecamp was a bit easier for a newbie to the platform

Really mess around with it before you use it, get to know the features that you can use too.

Melissa, we love your advice -- it's indeed good to mess with everything, test it out, then brainstorm about a structure that fits your needs. dapulse is a tool that works for you, and it just requites a structure that will work for your workflow :)

Keep enjoying dapulse!

Super Efficient

2018-08-28

We are able to track all of our projects in one place, no need to have Google Docs and we moved from Basecamp to Monday.com because it was easier to use along with how the conversations were saved made it easier for the team to collaborate.

Pros

How easy it is to use and set up. Even our most tecnologically challenged users are able to navigate and be prodcutive with this software.

Cons

Being notified via reminders of what is coming up that is due, being able to set that up to be specific to the users needs.

does what it says.

2018-06-29

Pros

It is easy to use compared to others like basecamp. However not as robust.

Cons

Most of the features that make it stand out are behind a paywall. That being said the most basic feature you have to pay for here is free in others like trello. I mean a graphic timeline is fine but any project manager should be using other software that gives them a visual of workflow on a timeline.

Wanted a Gantt chart generator and monday.com does that and more

2017-10-13

Great at enhanced Gantt chart generation with some project management features. Useful in visualizing projects, timelines, and progress on goals.

Pros

Functionality is impressive...think Gantt chart on steroids! Very helpful for basic project management work, setting goals for projects with timelines, keeping projects on-track. It was very user friendly and has a good support system if you run into problems.

Cons

It isn't a replacement, however, for more robust project management systems like Basecamp or TeamWork.

Great for project management and kinda entertaining

2018-09-14

Pros

The website is attempting to take on software like Trello, Asana, and Basecamp and doing a pretty good job at it.

Cons

Gets a bit pricey towards the upper end of the pricing tiers. Lacks the depth that you can attain through other software.

monday.com is simple yet effective project management tool

2017-04-14

It's a great bang for your buck and I feel it's much more intuitive to use than Trello or Basecamp.

Pros

Simple, multifunctional, and economic

Cons

Pricing structure. Thresholds are 5, 10, 15, 25, 50, 100, 200 and 200+. I'd like to get quoted in increments of one person.

Greatest project management I've used to date

2016-11-02

I've been a long time user of Basecamp and it took me a long time to choose to make the switch but when I did, it changed the way I manage teams and projects almost immediately. monday.com is super fast, intuitive and always there - I know where projects and tasks are at any time or anywhere.

Enables my remote team to work together efficiently!

2018-11-14

I've tried tons of other tools.. for a long time, we were using Basecamp, then Trello and then TeamWeek.. and for some reason or another, we would never keep up with it.

Pros

- Collaboration without having files and conversations all over the place! - Flexibility. This tool is so flexible with how you want to use it. You can customize the columns to suit your needs. - Accountability and Visibility. I love that you can assign team members, mention them, set deadlines and see at glance what everyone is working on. - Software updates. These guys update and add features like crazy. Their support team is also crazy responsive! - Mobile app. I love using it on mobile.. it's pretty full featured for a mobile experience.

Cons

- I'd love to have the private boards feature at a lower price point. This a great feature but comes at a higher tier plan. - It took a little while to get used to but now this tool is invaluable to running my business.

Hi Jeff! Oh, we're going to blush, thank you so much for this amazing review.

When we built dapulse, we wanted to build a tool that helps you plan and execute in the same place. We believe that your planning should be as alive as the projects themselves.

We're super happy to hear that our vision is shared by you and your team!

Keep up with the good work,
The dapulse team

Our main tool for EVERY project and system in our company

2016-09-12

I've tried several tools like Asana and Basecamp but monday.com is faster, more intuitive (which comes in great working with several external people) and the UI is so clean.

Pros

Internal, private and shared boards!

Cons

Maybe a little better visualization of timelines BUT they're working on it so, I'm looking forward!
