GatherContent Feature Reviews

Chris Turner

Great tool for content professionals who hate writing content in a CMS

2019-07-31

GatherContent helps me organize my content for clients and deliver to them for review and approval rather seamlessly.

Pros

Plus, GC offers a number of services that content it to major content management systems, making it a great way to export content to a CMS without having to work with development to customize templates or features within CMS for days and days.

Cons

GatherContent has some very useful features but at times it's not intuitive as to how customizable you can make templates within it.

Gather Content has completely changes my organization and made my day so much easier to manage!

2018-01-10

Pros

I like that I can leave comments on each individual piece so that others who have access can see what I'm doing and thinking!

Cons

I wish that I could integrate it with our case management software so that I could easily manage other pieces of information!

Q: Can't We Just Use MS Word? A: NO!

2019-07-26

Getting a team of noneditors to work on Gather Content has been rather painless and the customizability for templates for various web page content we'll be working with is awesome.

Pros

Connecting our current-site content to Gather Content and then exporting it and working in Gather Content rather than WP has been a godsend.

Cons

A few times I've logged in, I'm a bit unwowed by the simplicity of the dashboard and home screen.

Probably more powerful than we need

2018-10-26

We use GatherContent purely for organising content for new websites.

Pros

This is a really well thought out, scaleable software for content planning and management.

Cons

I suspect that this software is slightly too powerful for what we need. It still works great for small projects, but I would really like to see a pricing option for smaller scale usage, perhaps based around number of items, or even credit based. It is verging on too expensive for us in relation to our level of usage month by month.

Don't use if you're actually the owner of your business

2019-08-02

Regular old Word does the trick for content editing.

Pros

It potentially makes our web developers job easier as they can upload to site faster but if you actually want to be involved in the content going into your site stay away.

Cons

no ability to track changes and manage multiple parties editing the content with the ability to see who wrote what.

Transformed my editorial process

2017-06-07

- More automated editorial process (saved time) - Less time spent communication with writers on the status of their articles, where to find their assignments, and other logistical questions - Better historical record of submissions - No more loosing submissions in the "blackhole of Google Drive"

Pros

Some huge pros were: - Automated email notifications to writers when I changed the status on a page - HTML and plain text versions of everything - The way everything was organized - Flexible tagging / customized organization - Ability to create "forms" for content submissions (so, for example, I could encourage writers to fill out sections for standardized content, like a guide, rather than free-form compositions) - Overviews and content progress

Cons

I know they're still working on it and the pros far outweighed the cons, but there were times where I'd click on one spot and start typing and the text would appear somewhere else... also if I'd put custom HTML into the HTML side (e.g. a class), it wouldn't save it.

GatherContent Review

2018-12-05

GatherContent really helps us organize content for web projects and improved our process for creating and organizing content for the web.

Pros

The email notifications are really helpful and make collaboration much easier.

Cons

It's not very intuitive. A tutorial is definitely makes a big difference in navigating the tool. Tracking edits is also a bit confusing.

Not Bad!

2019-07-24

Although we could not put special accent marks or upload huge files, GatherContent was much easier to use than I had expected, and I think most people would find it's a better alternative to the Google Suite for something like web design.

Pros

GatherContent made it easy to communicate with our website designers to allow us to upload pictures and text for our website.

Cons

I couldn't just put the link in the text, our developers said I had to put the link as a comment so that it would load into Wordpress properly. There were also some size limits that made my life a tiny bit more difficult (had to submit elsewhere all my PDFs as zipped files).

Goodbye Microsoft Word, Endless Emails, and Disorganized Content Teams!

2018-12-04

GatherContent really helps accelerate and organize the content production process.

Pros

Finally, something for writers, designers, and developers to track and edit content production.

Cons

Sometimes setting up workflow is not always straightforward, but that is more of a learning curve for teams and requires someone with more high-level project insight to create and help update.

Took some getting used to

2017-12-16

Hard to say - I think we might have had better results with another tool, but I've nothing to directly compare it to.

Pros

It works okay as a tool to bring together content and make it available for review and feedback, although it's definitely nothing special in that respect.

Cons

The presentation of content as components of a greater whole takes a lot of getting used to, at least in the uses I've seen as a recipient of content for review.
