What do you like best?
We love that DivvyHQ allows for our team, who is in office as well as on location/working remotely, communicate better. We have a blogging team as well as a video production team and it allows us to provide very detailed information so there are few questions when the project begins. Also having the ability to have reviewers is great! The owner of the company doesn't always want to be super involved in all pieces of content but now instead of asking us individually what we're working on, he can easily hop on and view for himself.
What do you dislike?
So far there isn't too much that we don't like. Sometimes the calendar doesn't allow us to change dates very easily (or it will move all of the tasks to one day instead of keeping them spread out on separate days) so sometimes it's a little buggy.
I used to have issues with the parking lot feature but that has recently been updated so it's easier to use now and bring into the calendar function. Sometimes, again, it's a little buggy but after a few tries it will navigate over.
Recommendations to others considering the product
If you are looking for a platform to have creative teams work on multiple projects at a time, this is a great solution. We looked into about 12 other platforms and this is the one we chose because of the way you can set it up for your customers/personas/channels to distribute to, etc.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Team communication. It has decreased how many weekly meetings we need to have to hold because much of the information can be found in the projects themselves including where to post to, who the audience is that it needs to be written/produced for, etc.
It has also really helped us schedule our content better from who is working on what, how much time it will take and when things will be scheduled to launch. Before, it was a bit of a chaotic mess as to when things would be published, who was doing what and what we could expect as deadlines. Now I, as the administrator, can set deadlines and hold my teammates accountable. I can see each day what has been published, what is past do and who is doing what next to make sure that we all keep on track.
