Rivka Neumann

Glip is great for small teams!

2019-12-09

Glip is great for teams who have multiple projects they're working on, and need to collaborate remotely.

Pros

I love that I can create tasks, and chat directly on the task so all questions regarding that task is available at a click.

Cons

There are softwares better for task management - I don't love the interface for setting a project up.

One of the best for team collaboration and tasking!

2018-03-08

One of the only software programs that allows you to send tasks to other team members

Pros

Lots of integrations

Cons

Does not allow you to search tasks which would help when trying to track down previous tasks or tasks that were assigned awhile back.

Simple but maybe too simple

2020-10-07

Pros

We found it great for small one-off projects that did not require a ton of back and forth, followups, benchmarks, etc.

Cons

Once we evolved projects into more long-term campaigns it quickly became difficult to keep track of everything within this tool.

Great free addition from ringcentral

2017-01-26

Great to keep in contact and track tasks. Calendar is the only issue: currently it's a one way gmail integration: both ways would be functional

Pros

Easy to use Free when you have ring central Good for task management and delegation

Cons

No 2 way gmail integration

The web app is fantastic, the mobile implementations need work

2019-10-15

The mobile apps are quite limited and do not live up to what the Glip web app can accomplish.

Pros

Simple to use, yet very effective . Integrates effectively with a ton of other apps.

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

Great Project Management Tool

2018-10-12

I no longer worry if a task is going to be completed on time or forgotten.

Pros

We market 40+ events annually, and Glip has allowed us to organize each event marketing plan, assign team-specific tasks, and upload documents with ease so that everyone on the team is informed.

Cons

The task assignment feature has been vital to our team, but it does not have the option of changing the task progress.

A Game Changer

2018-07-03

Pros

Glip by RingCentral is truly a game changer in the project management software industry.

Cons

There is a small yet very noticeable bug in Glip regarding the percentage completion of tasks, where Glip will report, for example, 20% of 40% being completed, even though it's actually just 20% more of the task being completed compared to before.

Great Organizational Tool

2018-03-13

Pros

Ability to have email notifications for a back up if something is missed.

Cons

Chat is great, but if someone needs to be removed from a group, you have to start a new one. Wish it was integrated into other programs I use as well rather than just a stand alone.

Glip is the best for Organization & Planning!

2017-06-09

Being able to keep track of information in one place.

Pros

You can click on a task and have a conversation only about that task.. it will appear in the 3rd tier... or the 'shelf'.

Cons

It works best if you design it for YOU.

Glip is the most effective productivity tool I've ever used to date (despite its shortcomings).

2017-09-13

See review.

Pros

Glip makes team communication, collaboration, and task/project management as simple as instant messaging.

Cons

More specifically, the calendar fails in its ability to effectively schedule recurring tasks and events.

Just as good as slack, but free!

2016-12-06

Overall a much better application than others, in my opinion, the tasks feature is amazing as is the giphy integration. It's easy to build and maintain teams and makes workplace IM'ing as fun as it is productive.

Pros

3rd party integrations

Cons

The lack of "reactions" to comments

Glip is great for small teams to chat and organize a calendar.

2017-11-02

Pros

I love the ease of setup, mobile apps, and integration of checklist progress into tasks.

Cons

Glip is a nice tool in many ways because of the simplicity and Slack can get overbearing, but sometimes it's really nice to have all the options of Slack.

The best collaboration platform for my web dev company

2016-09-02

The best part it is free but has also some paid plans. The free plan is more than enough for me.

Pros

1-It is free 2-Reliable 3-You can store notes 4-you can do voice and video chats 5-Fast

Cons

1-The issue with inviting guests is that I can not make them invisible for my other co-workers. 2-I would love to be able to open more than one window for each feature.

Amazing software

2018-11-21

Pros

We do not use this to its full advantage just yet, as it has great chat, file sharing, and task management uses, however we use it mostly for task management, and it has been a life saver.

Cons

However, with time it can be a huge assistance to any company.

I really like Glip for tracking my tasks

2018-02-23

An easy way to organize my tasks/schedule.

Pros

I love the fact that you can add tasks and assign them to yourself or coworkers and it cuts down on email.

Cons

It might be better if it wasn't it's own program and worked within Microsoft Outlook since it's likely that most customers use that for email.

Pros

It's easy to use and I would like that it can sync all messages to all endpoints and it's easy to manage your task and your schedule.

Cons

It takes a lot of time to refresh, and it takes a long time to render gif.

we didn't know what to think of Glip at first.

2018-08-01

Our day to day processes has been fast-tracked by Glip.

Pros

Well being able to jointly work on projects and files as a team without having to save and email then wait around for a reply, it is a no-brainer.

Cons

Cons are a tuff one the learning/just use it curve was on our end. Sometimes using something new is a tough thing to do, but once you do you ask yourself why didn't I do this sooner. That is the case with Glip. Just use it, you will be happy you did.
