Lindsay Nyquist

Great product for project managing design work

2019-10-14

We are able to more efficiently gather project requests, track projects, proof files, and see each others' work.

Pros

And i love that in a meeting with one of my staff, I can simply pull up the projects they're working on, their progress, and see any snags.

Cons

An app was just released to review proofs, but not to use the other features - mobile access will make this so much better.

inMotion Review

2018-11-08

It also integrates with third-party software such as digital asset management solutions, so your final files are automatically synced and ready for others to view and/or download.

Pros

And it has a mobile app, so you can use it anytime or anywhere!

Cons

I haven't used the reporting feature much, but it doesn't seem to provide what I was looking for, such as how many jobs have been submitted, how many have been completed, which reviewers are behind on proofing, etc.

InMotion is great when it works.

2019-10-31

Overall, InMotion is a good project management tool but has some bugs here and there that need be worked out.

Pros

Easy to learn user interface and collaborate with other team members.

Cons

My biggest grip is InMotion does not successfully send my job requests to the other party sometimes.

Good resource, poor UI.

2015-12-14

However, actually reviewing anything can be a frustrating experience. The UI is difficult to navigate on both mobile and tablet.

Pros

» Shows status of proofs » Allows for comments and approval status

Cons

» Commenting on proofs is buggy (won't save comments on occasion) » Frustrating user interface » Can't manage projects beyond reviewing proofs » Highlighting words on app doesn't work like desktop (selects characters vs. words)

Response from inMotionNow


Thank you for your thoughtful comments. We rely on your honest feedback to continually make inMotion better, no matter how critical the feedback. Our product team is actively looking into the issues you experienced to ensure they don't happen again.

We are also currently hard at work on re-building the Review and Approval portion of inMotion. It's a complete makeover and will incorporate years of feedback gathered from our customers. We're confident these updates will address many of the usability challenges you're having, in addition to making the already powerful features even better.

Our mobile applications focus only on Review & Approval functionality, not Project Management, as a result of direct customer feedback. However, the new re-build will also bring major updates to our iOS and Android apps.

Thanks again for taking the time to offer your feedback.

Organization made easy

2019-10-08

Overall, InMotion has helped us have a big picture view for our department . The team appreciates being able to go to one place to determine what they need to do and where proofs stand at any given moment.

Pros

Stakeholders can submit requests, users can keep track of their tasks and all proofing is housed in the system.

Cons

There are some administrative tasks that are still a bit clunky.

InMotion Review

2018-12-12

Overall, InMotion is a good tool for organizing and tracking internal and external production and special events.

Pros

What I like most about InMotion is that it provides a way for up-to-date tracking on internal production, and allows me to send out tasks to my team members and proofs to my clients all in one singular program.

Cons

Other programs will have drop down menus or columns with all it's pre-filtered lists labeled for you.

Love this software!

2018-03-20

Pros

Our marketing and design teams have different challenges that other project management software can't seem to support. inMotion's online proofing and projects requests works seamlessly with our project management needs.

Cons

Sometimes the online proofing can be less than streamlined - but not too troublesome to call it a true "con"

So far so good with Ignite!

2019-10-08

In addition, Custom Views helps A TON with prioritizing tasks and projects.

Pros

We have only recently transitioned from InMotion Classic to Ignite and all of the added features, ease of building out tasks, tagging projects, campaign forms, and so many other things are my favorite new features.

Cons

Still working out the kinks with getting to know a new software, but nothing too serious stands out. The one thing my team used in Classic that isn't in Ignite is the markup capabilities of rejecting a request.

InMotion Ignite review

2019-10-14

Pros

We produce hundreds of ads in a short period of time, and this software has helped tremendously to organize our workflow.

Cons

I miss the precise timer feature of the previous InMotion—we track the time that our creative staff spends on tasks to estimate our workload and staffing needs, and now everyone is "best guessing" their time spent.

inMotion Review

2019-10-11

I have enjoyed ignite a lot. It feels like the product we initially were hoping for. It's organizations and communication is great.

Pros

I have enjoyed the ability to keep track of all of our projects. I like that we can save files in it and that submitters can provide quick and simple instructions.

Cons

I also wish that there was a way to adjust the queue of projects instead of simply by due date.

I think the user interface is extremely easy to use and get used to.

2018-03-09

Pros

I really like the functionality and easy learning curve for the interface. I also thought the tech support was great.

Cons

It lacks the ability to track financials in a way that's meaningful but besides that I thought it was what you would expect.

InMotion keeps us on-task and provides a centralized location for all job needs

2017-01-13

InMotion provides excellent support for its software and makes it painless to set-up, train users, launch, and keep using. In only one year of use, it's been critical in managing our work flow, increasing the accuracy of our quotes, and ensuring that our team profitable.

Pros

It's easy to use from the start and continues to become more relevant as you set up templates and continue to refine your processes.

Cons

It lacks the ability to track financials in a way that's meaningful.

InMotion has changed our workplace

2015-12-14

We use inMotion to receive client project requests, project management for a variety of projects and proofing.

Pros

Easy to learn/use Huge amount of versatility and customization Customer support has been great Handles basically anything we throw at it

Cons

Occasionally proofs don't display properly (probably a transparency issue) Would like to be able to edit the review workflow at any time, not just the current tier Would like more options on setting the proof available reminder email (perhaps by project?)

Project management software that needs an update

2018-08-14

Pros

It's got pretty much everything you need in a project management software, but it does so in a clunky way that is not user friendly.

Cons

I'm a professional designer used to managing projects in other ticket-based software, and this stumped me most of the time.

User-friendly time saver!

2015-12-18

Pros

I've used several other platforms and this is by far the most intuitive/easy to figure out -- and easiest to get others trained on and using.

Cons

Ability to copy/edit and save a new project request would be a welcome addition.

A step up from regular inmotion

2019-10-17

I've been having a positive experience with inMotion ignite. It has worked well for our team that grew a lot this past year.

Pros

Very easy to turn a project into a proof and I like that it's one page. to get to your proof on regular Inmotion you would have to go through like 7 different pages.

Cons

The old inmotion listed projects and segregated them with alternating colors behind them so it was easy to distinguish between your differrent projects, also had thumbnail images of the projects so it was easy to locate. ignite just has a giant list and when your comapny uses ID numbers you just get a list of 12 digit numbers and it's very chaotic.

Really solid platform

2015-12-08

My agency works closely with inMotionNow on several marketing campaigns, and we use this platform to move our creative projects along more quickly and efficiently.

Pros

Eliminates the hassle of updating multiple documents to reflect design and copy changes.

Cons

Sometimes the comments run off the page, but this is fixable by moving the comment box.
