Cons
We basically had to figure it out on our own. THe "integrations" through thier integration tool are very poorly built and the tool is terrible.

Really bad UI and it's difficult to use correctly. You should consider a modular set up where there are core functionalities that are streamlined for the need.

Many ways to do similar things and often so many features you’re unaware of. I find it is intimidating for new users and not as intuitive as other products.

Awesome platform that's only getting better

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall, using Mavenlink has been great - it has made a very positive impact on day-to-day functions as a business. I would recommend it highly to agencies for its flexibility and extensive functionality to manage resources and projects.

Pros

The reporting functionality Mavenlink offers is extensive and has enabled us to get much better visibility to our project, program, portfolio and resourcing data. Which in turn has allowed us to set/adjust our KPI/KRIs and better inform business decisions with the data we have available. In using Mavenlink how it's meant to be used, not only have we improved our business practices but our PMO has gained valuable insight into important aspects of the business that were previously siloed. The fact that Mavenlink actually continues to improve its platform based on user feedback is a massive plus, as new functionality becomes available to better utilize the platform.

Cons

There are some small (very small in most cases) problems we have with some functionality i.e. the naming/categorization of metrics in the reporting suite could be clearer, when approving/rejecting timesheets, adding a comment to a specific entry would be preferable, rather than the comment being published to all entries.

Great company and product - still room to grow but on the right track!

Reviewed 7 months ago

The product has brought our processes to the next level and the overall experience has been positive.

Pros

Resource planning was made 1000% better by using the Mavenlink product. It is an intuitive modern UI that is feature rich across the board.

Cons

There are some gaps in the product and areas where I wish it had been more configurable. For instance, invoicing could use more flexibility in terms of how you build out an invoice (and how you display things on the invoice). Also, time tracking is easy but notes aren't required nor is there a config to make them required which has been a big pain for us.

Great at what it does but too limited

Reviewed a month ago

Mavenlink is a tool that definitely helps with project management, time tracking, and resource management. I would like to see it become a bit more colorful and implement some of the features that other project management and agile tools have as standard such as: color coding and duplication of entire projects.

Pros

I like the ease of adding tasks, making templates for projects, logging time for tasks, and scheduling shared resources.

Cons

I would like to be able to color-code things (tasks and projects) to more easily tag similar items. I would prefer to see when posts were added to the activity feed and not just which day. I would like to be able to see a resource's task list from their perspective. It would save a lot of time if you could duplicate a project if all but a few details were going to be identical.

Good system but some frustrating issues

Reviewed 2 years ago

Useful overall, but the more time I spend with it the more I realize it is missing some key functionality that would save a lot of time. It's much more difficult to update a project in Mavenlink than past systems I've used, and I think there are some beneficial tweaks that could be made

Pros

From an ease of use standpoint, time entry and project creation is fairly straightforward. It's also nice to have access to so many reporting features, although I imagine that's even more valued by the leadership team rather than staff.

Cons

Three major issues stand out to me and my colleagues: 1- the software is very slow at times, and the more time I spend making edits to a project the longer it takes. In some cases, the lag is so bad that a task that should take 10 minutes ends up taking 30 since I wait so long for the system respond. The more tasks and individuals assigned to a project, the worse it is. Customer service suggested...

Realtime Time Tracking and Burn Rate View

Reviewed 4 months ago

The biggest problems that Mavenlink has solved for us would be the ability to see if our projects are profitable or not as well as saving us valuable time with some automation features like repeating tasks, having templates, etc.

Pros

Mavenlink has really helped us to see whether or not our projects are profitable. It's also saved us valuable time with the integration that was implemented from the start to repeat monthly tasks for all of the monthly recurring marketing projects we have.

Cons

There are some very minor things that I am hoping will be addressed in a future feature improvement, but not enough for me to stop using Mavenlink. For example, you can mark a task complete without checking off the checklist items for the task, you don't get notifications within the platform (only via email) when you've been tagged/added to a project/assigned to a task, there are limited task status options to choose from, and there's no way to follow-up or be notified when a task due date is approaching/someone hasn't responded to a comment/tag, etc.
