Glip overview

What is Glip?

Glip is a conversation platform for teams to plan, share & organize work tasks. Text and video chat features facilitate communication between team members whilst file sharing and collaborative task management encourage efficiency and productivity.

Glip helps teams to connect in real-time, unifying chat, tasks, video calling, file sharing, and event scheduling. Glip simplifies teamwork with secure instant messaging designed for teams to communicate and get work done at the same time. With Glip, work can be organized around conversations because the two are aligned. Users will always know what their team is doing and what needs to be done next.

Glip enables the free flow of communication in teams. With text and and video chat at Glip's core, conversation barriers between team members are removed, enabling productivity and a smoother workflow.

Ideas can be debated and problems solved through swift communication with Glip, which can be used like a Knowledge Base. Email and third party integrations mean that Glip - which requires no technical knowledge - can be implemented by teams already using different applications.

Glip needs to be on more people's radar... it's fantastic!

Used daily for 2+ years

Pros
After going through an extensive process where our company tested multiple project management platforms (Slack, daPulse, Asana, Wunderlist, and more), Glip came out the clear winner. The ease of use and the way the whole platform is based on conversations were the determining factors. We love the way Glip is really just conversations that you can turn into all sorts of actionable items such as file sharing, task list generation, etc. Easy to use, incredibly feature rich, and improving all the time. Glip needs to be experienced by more people!

Cons
Honestly, the fact that not many people have heard of it compared to some of the competitors that we feel Glip is superior to. Folks we work with wanted to use other platforms and Glip was something they just had not heard of so collaborating was a little challenging at times due to that fact.

The web app is fantastic, the mobile implementations need work

Used daily for 1-2 years

Review Source: Capterra

When using the web app Glip is great. Easy to use, and it offers a robust set of tools for different types of projects. The mobile apps are quite limited and do not live up to what the Glip web app can accomplish.

Pros
Glip offers an interesting set of tools to manage a team. Simple to use, yet very effective . Integrates effectively with a ton of other apps. To me Gmail integration is a great plus.

Cons
No Kanban view of tasks, sorting of tasks is a bit cumbersome and never extended to Mobile apps, which in my opinion look like an after thought

Pros
Easy to use. Comes with unlimited storage and messaging. Allows you to screen share and remote access. Able to add clients outside your company.

Cons
You won't be able to restore deleted messages or tasks once deleted. Not enough options to add lot of apps.

Low quality Slack clone

Used daily for 6-12 months
Reviewed 2018-11-16
Review Source: Capterra

Pros
Glip has apps for majority of platforms and is cheaper than Slack. It's being actively developed, so missing features are starting to show up.

Cons
Well, it's not that great overall compared to Slack. The major pain point is how it handles notifications (although they are working on it.) Since my company moved to Glip from Slack I started to miss a lot of important conversations since Glip won't notify you when someone uses your name (they have to explicitly mention you.) Until now Glip didn't have a way to notify you when someone direct messages you—again, they would have to mention you. The workaround was to enable notifications for everything, but that's not an option when you're part of a bigger organization. Another issue was (this feature is now in beta) showing how many direct messages or mentions you have in your dock. They would only show all unread messages from all your channels, so that could quickly grow to 1000+. Another thing besides notifications is lack of easy sign-in on mobile. Slack would send you a magic link you tap to sign in. It's especially annoying, since I'm being logged out on my mobile app quite often. Last but not least, design. It's a type-heavy app and typography simply doesn't cut it. Slack's look and feel is way way better. Overall, if you're looking for a Slack alternative, you may consider something else.

A powerful free communication tool

Used daily for 2+ years
Reviewed 2021-02-11
Review Source: Capterra

Glip was a very nice tool for communication and file sharing. We rarely ran into any issues while using it. The web app is working fine but the windows client is not as responsive and updates were avoided since they created frustration for no reason.

Pros
Glip is completely free to use for chatting and sharing files. Glip offers a very well maintained solution for communication with a lot of options to organised said communications. It easy to add people outside your organisation and still being able to discuss and share with them.

Cons
It hasn't really evolved during the past 5 years. The plugins are very limited and there's not much documentation offered to explain how to use them. Calendar is not very advanced and not really good for team management
