What is Shortcut?

Built specifically for software development teams, Shortcut is a cloud-based project management platform for collaboratively supporting the full planning, build, and launch cycle. Scalable to cater for non-profits right up to Enterprise-level with variable subscription pricing packages, Shortcut also promises robust, out-of-the-box integration options for the likes of GitHub, GitLab and Slack etc, with API access for developing custom workflow automations. An online UI allows users to create a “Story” for describing any task, job, feature or build, before defining “Milestones” and “Epics” for goal-based progression. Drag and drop Kanban workboards allow task workflows to be rearranged and prioritized intuitively while keeping every team member updated. Reporting tools and data visualizations including cumulative flow diagrams and burndown charts also support greater visibility on overall progress and achievements.

Pros
Clubhouse has been fantastic. Their customer support is awesome and super helpful.
I love how intuitive and easy to use the software is. The pricing is great if you're a team of less than 10.
Overall, I think this is a great product when comparing to other project management softwares. It allows great customizations for your team of any size.
Cons
I was sick to death of the heavy, underperforming and sometimes outright horrible competitors in this product space that I had been stuck using for many years.
Sometimes the auto-save fails and you lose work. Sometimes tickets you create are lost in a void if not triaged correctly.
This may also be due to the app being invite-only, which contributes to lack of diversity.

Get up and running in 1 day

Reviewed 5 years ago

Clubhouse is allowing us to capture user stories on the fly, and keep those stories organized. We are able to create custom swim lanes that match our process perfectly, so that the stories can flow from one step to the next easily until they are done. We use the reporting on a daily basis to look at our burndown chart, and to track our stats for each sprint. It is easy to add tasks for each other...

Pros

We're a scrum team developing software in the news industry. We switched from PivotalTracker to Clubhouse, and the ease of setup and how quickly we were able to learn the product was amazing. It took me weeks to get a grasp of PivotalTracker, but within a morning we were up and running on Clubhouse and loving it. The software looks clean, appealing, and intuitive, and it is so easy to learn and use that you will wonder why you used anything else ever. And the price point is easy to swallow, too. We love it!

Cons

Clubhouse is still missing robust sprint related tools. There are great workarounds in place, and they will be releasing those soon, so no hesitation on recommending it. But once they roll those features out it will be even better.

Solid Product with Curated Agile Experience

Reviewed 2 years ago

A solid 8.5/10. Would recommend to others, would use again and keep using, but could stand to improve a few features that would bring it up to a 10.

Pros

This software is a curated experience that intentionally limits setup and flows compared with other products like JIRA which are less "bounded." I think this is better for most teams which do not care to install extra plugins and fight with non-intuitive workflow items.

Cons

There are some quirks in group selection and application, filtering, and sorting that do not always let me cross-cut the data the ways I want.

Just fine

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

The software is intuitive and easy to use if you've used other product management software. Has lots of additional features.

Cons

The reason we stopped using it was we didn't actually need all the features that it had. In the end we felt like we had too many tools and downsized into Notion.

Does what you've always wanted out of Jira

Reviewed 2 years ago

Amazing!

Pros

Seems silly, but for me, it's the ability to create tasks under a ticket, and be able to convert those into tickets on their own. Jira did not have this, and still doesn't as far as I know, but wouldn't matter - Shortcut is simple to use, and ready to go out of the box.

Cons

Doesn't have the brand recognition, so hard to convince others that its the correct solution to use.

Flexible Agile-focused task and project management software

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

Shortcut is amazing for non-profits who need a flexible and no- to low-cost task/project management platform.

Cons

Unless you work in Agile methodology day in and day out, it can be difficult to understand how to effectively organize tasks/stories into epics and projects.
