Great tool for managing your day

2018-12-21

I love that their basic plan is free (for up to two people) because you can see how it works before comitting to a larger package.

Pros

It's easy to drag things around and adjust your tasks, and the interface is very easy to use.

Cons

It can be a bit difficult to plan more long-term with activities and resources.

I love how Workstack helps teams breakdown specific tasks for specific times of the day which helps with multi-tasking.

Cons

Not much to dislike with Workstack and all its features.

Works Well with Basecamp

2019-05-08

I think it can be improved, but it works for tracking time, and planning.

Pros

It also helps me plan out my day and important tasks that need to be completed.

Cons

Our team often has tasks that are 15 minutes and can skew actual time spent on tasks.

Great way to structure!

2019-09-19

Made prioritizing tasks easy and allowed for everyone to know the tasks that they were supposed to accomplish.

Pros

Workstack is a great tool for structuring out projects. Everyone knows what they are supposed to broken down by time.

Cons

Loading the software can sometimes take a signifigant amount of time and you can only structure out in 30 minute intervals where some small projects 15 min intervals are just as useful.

Beautiful application of team planning at the time of the development of a job. easy and comfortable

2018-05-13

Pros

among its tools, the one that stands out is its integration to third parties where we can make Workstack work with other applications.

Cons

It is very difficult to see something negative in the workbench, but it should be developed in more languages to make it more universal. Workstack offers us a free trial version of 14 days, but afterwards, this application is paid and depends on its use in a team, it can be expensive for the budget. although it would not be relevant

Workstack is great, but not for me. Here's why.

2019-04-01

Pros

I liked many things about Workstack for managing my freelance design and editing projects.

Cons

Ultimately, I couldn't afford it. I think this won't bother most people but it wasn't viable for my freelance work and other softwares were more important for me to use. Customer service couldn't offer me more affordable pricing.

Indispensable for teamwork

2019-04-08

It is one of the best tools to follow projects, easy to use from day one and that allows me to have the tasks of the day organized.

Pros

It has integration with many third-party tools which makes it very versatile

Cons

Nothing that really matters; maybe extend the free trial so that you can really try it until you decide to buy

Couldn't -work- without it!

2017-09-05

Scheduling my weeks couldn't get easier.

Pros

Quick overview of your tasks, helps you schedule your day, assign easily, navigate through the comments, colours make projects visually stand out, quite user-friendly.

Cons

Only two things I could think of that could be improved: the loading time can be quite long, and it happened to me I needed to invert the order of my tasks (to switch the priorities: make the last ones first in my list) and to do that manually, when you have 20+ tasks, is painful.

After recent updates it's the perfect tool.

2016-12-06

After the recent updates Workstack made - and the fact it now works with Basecamp 3 - it is now a completely indispensable planning tool for me.

Pros

The scheduling calendar makes it really easy to plan the work from lots of different projects going on at the same time.

Cons

The 0.5 hr limit to tasks and auto selection of project colours - but these things have now been sorted in the latest release so are no longer an issue for me.

Still waiting for third-party integrations to apps like Google Calendar although this is coming soon.

Workstack - Recurring task feature needed

2016-11-03

Workstack is awesome for visually laying out Basecamp tasks across multiple team members and projects.

Pros

Visual layout of Basecamp to-dos makes scheduling significantly easier.

Cons

Manual entry of recurring tasks and having to break up to-dos into separate parts to cross multiple days and still allow custom prioritization.

Workstack is great!

2019-01-08

For my team, using Workstack has helped keep us all on track and allows us to easily where our team members are on their tasks as well.

Pros

We can quickly see where we are on a project and what needs to be done without having to search through emails or a complicated PM software.

Cons

The larger your team, the more expensive it gets, but the productivity that comes from using it makes it worth it.

Great overall

2016-11-16

We use Workstack to manage projects for our design team. Overall, it's been great for us- we save time scheduling and more easily identify where last-minute projects can fit it or where time can be shaved off.

Pros

The ease of managing schedules.

Cons

Load time, the fact that project colors are randomly assigned upon reloading the page.

I Liked It But Didn't Use It For Our Team

2019-04-03

Pros

I was testing out different softwares to better track our team's tasks and making sure everyone stayed on top of due dates.

Cons

I liked seeing everyone's scheduled tasks but it also felt a bit 1984-ish.
