Daniel Pacheco

Useful tool for project management.

2019-01-12

The obtaining of reports in relation to the hours worked, the assigned projects and the organizational structure is fantastic.

Pros

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.

Cons

They have notifications by email, but they do it in excess.

A really easy project planning product

I liked it because it is simple, easy to use and has a lot of great features and even a free plan if you just need a personal management platform.

Pros

I'm using it for bug tracking and project management.

Cons

Sometimes there can be too many options or options that aren't explained well.

Overall very positive.

2015-07-28

If there is a negative, it's that the company makes assumptions about its user base which in our case do not apply, especially in the area of external task status change notification. Specifically, the system allows plain text email notifications, but these contain all the task data, which represent a serious potential leak of private information.

Response from Planio


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, setting up email encryption is still trickier than we wish it would be, depending on the email client you are using. However, we consider offering email notification encryption via OpenPGP to be the best of the options currently available to service providers like us.

I will forward your feedback regarding the removal of certain information from the notification emails to our product team, though.

Thanks again, please don't hesitate to get back to me at any time with any questions or feedback.

~ Jan Schulz-Hofen, Managing Director

Both good, but the Planio UI is a more familiar redmine look and feel.
