As simple or as complex and you need it to be for light project management. Like Trello on steroids.

2018-05-17

Pros

Integrations are amazing, you can connect with many other third-party software.

Cons

It also does not provide Gantt chart or project completion graphs that are so useful.

Excellent project management software that keeps projects easy to track and hard to forget

2017-11-28

organization and project management (keeping projects on time and completed in full)

Pros

Easy to use interface; can make updates quickly and easily; permissions keep things clean; time tracking is easy to use and allocate time per project; notifications keep updated on boards that I rarely use but need to be privy to information

Cons

When using 'tree view' it's difficult to understand that card-within-a- card I'm working on. Tracking hours for more than one day (have to track hours each day rather than monthly)

It does not allow to prioritize activities, nor does it allow a preview of the notes made.

Favro is an easy to use software for teams working from different time zones.

2017-09-26

This is our team collaboration software and it becomes easy for our Sprint planning for monthly tasks and projects.

Pros

For each card, it is easy to track the progress and updates from each team member and this helps in weekly & monthly meetings.

Cons

Few minor UI fixes can improve the software.

2017-09-19

Favro's main competitive advantage is the hierarchical listing of cards to help organize process.

2018-05-25

Project management is challenging in startups.

Pros

The primary reason we went with Favro was the ability to hierarchically organize cards (like Asana) but also organize workflows like a Kanban tool. This fits our team approach the best.

Cons

The UI is very text heavy and doesn't allow for incorporating custom iconography.

Good, easy to set up and manage

2017-09-19

Easier team and project management

Pros

Reports make it easy for my dev team to use, setup and organization of boards and backlogs are easy.

Cons

I would like to see more customization for software development, things like Gantt charts, bug reporting, sprint cycles and scrum scheduling.

Overall experience of using favro is quite good compared to other trackers that I have been using.

2018-05-22

It helps us organise our tasks. With multiple people working across the globe, we can find out who is working on what and whats the status of a particular task is.

Pros

Moving tickets by dragging and dropping resembles the board where we use sticky notes for tracking tasks.

Cons

There should be an option to assign the card to a particular member. There is an option to add members but is not similar to assignee.

There are also some great features, however for every great feature there is a missing feature.

2018-05-28

This helps us monitor team member activity and project task completions.

Pros

I like that we can assign cards to team members and monitor their progress.

Cons

I wish there were more options for categorization and organization. We had to create a special category for "Client Name" on each of our cards. Then, we have to manually change that category for every card when we add a new client. We would like to be able to select a group of cards and change custom names and categories to all selected. Also, we would like to be able to just click a button inside a column (not a board) to order all cards in a column by due date (similar to the options in and excel spreadsheet).

Great Project Management and Task handling Software

2018-05-25

Keeping track of our companies projects!

Pros

Our company was in need of a project management software because several employees would have to ask the same question or reiterate things or even lose track of projects and Favro keeps it all in one convenient spot.

Cons

When you have a large number of employees the software can get expensive because it is a per-user fee

Damiaan Melis

EXCELLENT, but a few minor functionalities missing

2016-10-28

We've recently made the transition from Trello to Favro, and on the whole we're very happy with the quality of the software and the service provided. The only constructive criticism i have is: - having to download linked files to preview them, in trello you could view files linked to cards in browser without having to download them first. This is an essential functionality that favro is sorely lacking! - when you have multiple long collections of different long lists, it can become quite complicated to navigate around the collections, maybe an expanded set of shortcuts allowing you to jump from collection to collection and card to card could be quite useful in terms of the user experience. At the moment it can be quite tricky to find specific cards in big collections. Cheers, Damiaan

Pros

Great UI and UX design, very useful for keeping track of big projects with lots of moving parts

Cons

no linked file preview on cards, confusing to navigate large collections

Overall it's fine for the price, but card UX needs work

2017-09-20

Planning, tracking, feedback management

Pros

It's a good middle weight - not too heavy and bulky like JIRA - not too light like Trello. Non tech people on my team understand it pretty easily.

Cons

Visual design could be modernized too, doesn't feel like a "light and easy" place to work.

One of the easiest ways to manage tasks for the week

2018-05-22

We've now been able to track tasks across the team and separate out the workboards for different team members

Pros

+ Separates backlogs from the weekly Kanban + Can be used by engineers as well as non-engineers + Integrates to Slack really well!!

Cons

- A bit clunky switching between projects - Tagging someone on a task doesn't always let them know about updates to the task (Asana does this better) - Would be nice to be able to comment and do things from Slack that posts directly to Favro

Since the new update, it's been much easier to differentiate the cards and components.

2018-05-23

Pros

I really like the ease of moving cards to a certain column and allows us to keep track of tasks and things in order to have a smooth process.

Cons

At times, the clock for the timesheet doesn't work properly based on what we use it for.

Good for non-technical teams

2018-05-22

Better team management, who does what, very flexible board design, tracking of tasks across all boards, etc

Pros

Really cool for team management when you grow to 5+ teams on 4+ sites and people working remotely!

Cons

Nothing bad for the moment, only a bit of an investment for a (non-American) startup budget. Customer support mark of 4 is like that only because we did not yet try it.

Welcoming software screaming to get hands-on

2018-05-21

The software can be used across departments connecting people and departments in a collaborative platform.

Pros

They are not a Gantt chart yet I am pleased that I can have a list reflecting when the tasks (CARDS) have to happen, by whom, and grouped under project stages (for which I create a CARD one level up).

Cons

Also the flexible categorization can make searching for existing tasks (CARDS) a dark science scrolling through a long list in which you have to hope you found all the relevant CARDS, the alternative being to go to the full featured reporting system.

Used for tracking project movement over 2 week periods

2018-04-18

Pros

It is very easy to track work with multiple people involved in a task. Using the boards was a good way to organize tasks to a specific sprint or project group

Cons

It could be cumbersome to move tasks around, and there is no good way to link the tasks to requirements.

I am very happy with Favro after trying a lot of other applications.

2016-10-27

Hi Team, Favro definitely has been very helpful in keeping track of our projects and tasks.

Pros

Ease to use, drag and drop of cards, tasklists...

Cons

When you expand a section and then work on its cards and then minimize it, its location changes to some other place and then you have to find and scroll back to next item, this wastes a lot of user time, it would be helpful if the location of minimized item stays the same so he can just expand the next row and go over it.

Excellent app for the management of your projects and teams

2018-05-16

It is a good option for task management, with a nice and intuitive design, it is a very competitive market but its service is good.

Pros

This relatively new application offers a very complete and attractive service for project management, has a very nice interface and its operation is very intuitive which helps a lot to implement and put into rapid production, because if your team has worked with methods agiles, it will be very easy to use this, has good tools and functionalities for an excellent management.

Cons

If you require complete management at the enterprise level you may lack features that you should complement with other applications, but you can perform the task acceptably
