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.

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

No 2 way gmail integration

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.

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.

The best collaboration platform for my web dev company

2016-09-02

If you are working on tasks or projects that involves graphics. you can use Glip feature that can make it possible to make comments on the graphics you share on it.

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.

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.

Jerry Beasterfeld

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.

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.

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 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.

Brings people together

2018-03-28

Pros

This has been a very important tool to help our teams meet in one place and collaborate on projects.

Cons

We would like this tool to be better integrated to our environment - this can be unnecessary fiddling to get the tool running daily and that's where we have seen competitors like Microsoft take the lead

Love it.

2018-08-31

Pros

From setting up different teams for different projects or departments to the mobile app I love almost everything about this tool.

Cons

I said almost everything earlier, giphy. While I love gif's and they can be hilarious, in the work environment sometimes they can get out of control. I'm pretty sure we have at least 2 channels that are nothing but gif conversations. While personally I find this awesome, professionally it can be very distracting.

Excellent Collaborative Tool

2018-08-02

Pros

The most useful of those extras has been task assignment/management.

Cons

In a perfect world the Google Calendar integration would be a bit more robust and flexible, but I'm fairly certain that's on Google anyway.

pretty neat chat box

2018-08-07

It works most of the time, employees seem to like it.

Pros

This has cool social things like gifs, you can track the files shared in the chats, you can make check list .

Cons

It needs a lot of updating, sometimes it will hold messages and send them all at once.

Main form of communication in our company

2017-11-02

Pros

File sharing and versions is probably my favourite feature. UI is very user friendly too and looks good.

Cons

Not really a con but I prefer the desktop app over the mobile app. I use the desktop app daily and rarely the mobile app anymore.

Seamless Communication

2018-01-18

It's free when you have RingCentral!

Pros

To-Dos, keep track of shared documents, fun communication.

Cons

As the admin, you can't delete employees out of teams/conversations. Which means you have to start new groups when employees leave the company. Hard to edit teams even as Admin.
