Full-featured project management, but low innovation because they are stuck on Redmine

Reviewed 9 months ago

Overall Planio was once my favorite project tool, and I still recommend it when people want something very simple and lightweight. But other competitors like Monday.com, Asana, Airtable and others have really overtaken Redmine based products in the project management arena, so given that Planio isn't really much cheaper than the lower tiers of these other tools, it's hard to know where Planio really come out on top any more.

Pros

I love Planio's implementation of the popular open source project management tool called Redmine. Planio is basically hosted Redmine, but they add in a very nice looking theme/skin for the UI, and then they added a ton of very helpful plug-ins and make the system bulletproof by hosting it in their proprietary cloud set up. I really love the agile Kanban board functionality, the checklists, and all...

Cons

The thing that makes Planio great Is that it is based on Redmine, but that's also a huge weakness because Redmine as a product has progressed very slowly over the past few years and compared to the other SaaS offerings that compete with Redmine, it looks like it's basically stuck in time. Also, anything outside of the core project management or issue tracking modes are very basic. Planio implements...

Overall very positive.

Reviewed 7 years ago

The system is reasonably fast, and good at what it does. Problems are responded to promptly (very quickly in some cases!). Over a 6 month period we reported three relatively obscure bugs, and all three were fixed within 24 to 48 hours. The core functionality is strong and reliable. If there is a negative, it's that the company makes assumptions about its user base which in our case do not apply,...

Vendor response

Hi Bob, Thank you very much for your valuable feedback. It is highly appreciated. Regarding our email update functionality, I completely agree with you that email is not a safe medium to transmit sensitive data. That's why we introduced OpenPGP encryption for all email notifications a while back. You can read my blog post about it here: http://plan.io/blog/post/90456288938/closing-the-email-encryption-loophole-with Unfortunately,...

Could be worse

Reviewed a month ago

Generally ugly looking and can be very clunky and frustrating to use. Overcomplicated for what we need. But it does the job for simple things, and I had a really good experience with customer support quickly fixing a bug.

Pros

Good customer support. Why does this field have a 40 character minimum?

Cons

It's too complicated when you just want simple issue tracking. Hard to understand relationship between projects/trackers/statuses/categories etc without spending some time - not at all intuitive. Not a very nice looking UI. Wiki seems to be perpetually a mess and hard to navigate, but maybe that's just how we use it. Defaults for agile boards with *every* status across the top are impossible to use.

Useful tool for project management.

Reviewed 4 years ago

The obtaining of reports in relation to the hours worked, the assigned projects and the organizational structure is fantastic. We continue using Planio for all our projects. It allows us to optimize operations more and more.

Pros

It is an innovative application that has an intrinsic project management under an agile methodology. This allows creating sections, timelines, letters, labels, time for each activity, incorporation of members to the work team, monitoring of activities, recording of hours worked. It is a tool that has helped us a lot in the company, I always highlight its potential for the most precise planning of each reality in the provision of technological services.

Cons

Care must be taken when creating schedules, letters, tasks or tickets for any team member. It can cost very expensive. Well, this application can generate reports with multiple filters. In addition, it is tedious to eliminate tasks once completed and transferred to the production line. They have notifications by email, but they do it in excess.

Planio review

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

As a whole is a fantastic product with neat hooks to help desk features. Easy to keep track of your ongoing projects. Repositories for your projects are also a plus being able to see an issue asociated revisions of your code.

Cons

Although depending on Redmine some APIs need more functionality specially regarding time tracking. Also need improvements in Gantts graphics presentations

Simple, Powerful, Fast, great customer Service...

Reviewed 7 years ago

Was using my own redmine cloud server instance but wanted something more stable and easy to manage for a corporate envioronment. Looked at Planio and another company. Both good, but the Planio UI is a more familiar redmine look and feel. The price plans are good, they actually have a free bronze plan which they don't advertise - good for 1 person operations. The customer service was very good. They...

Customer support and help with migration is great !

Reviewed 7 years ago

Actually I cannot say much about the tool yet, just started using it recently. I worked with redmine before and on the first impression plan.io looks like a very stable and cosistent setup with nice features like backup, agile board, timesheets and integrated repository. I chose it from many other redmine offerings. What I'd like to mention is a really great customer support. Plan.io offers free...

Great tool for our team

Reviewed 2 years ago

It's been a great experience so far, everything is working smoothly, many tools are available, user interface is clean and very easy to use and customer support is very responsive. In addition there is lots of flexibility in choosing the appropriate plan in terms of the number of projects and users.

Pros

Great service with outstanding support.

Reviewed 7 years ago

Very pleased with the service - no performance problems and everything integrates and works nicely. Planio truly shines with support however: fast responses and always of a high and very professional quality. I'd be more than happy to recommend Planio to anyone who is looking for a project management platform.

Excellent PM-tool for small/medium projects

Reviewed 7 years ago

Excellent Redmine implementation, I really appreciate the Agile-plugins (burnup/burndown, Agile planning and Scrum board). The only weakness as a project tool for me is the Gantt. It's ok to view, but is not interactive. Not enough to lose a star though, this product is real value for money

A really easy project planning product
