" It is an excellent tool to control and monitor projects by general and specific activities"

What do you like best?

It has a digital backup of all the documents that are handled through a cloud. The monitoring of the lines of work allows a better flow and the control of general and specific activities per project saves time, has a calendar that notifies the deadlines for the delivery of results.

It is also excellent for the programming of our workshops and the follow-up of the participants

What do you dislike?

There is a fairly wide difference between the permissions provided in the trial versions and the paid versions, the basic package for example limits the storage capacity.

For event tracking you have additional costs that limit uploading custom images

Recommendations to others considering the product

The trial version lasts only 14 days, which could halve some activities of certain projects, if the person is still not convinced with that trial period, it is unlikely that he chooses the basic pay version since the version previous does not allow in some cases to verify its operation

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When we execute a project, what takes more time and can not be executed, it is the follow-up of the general and specific activities, Favro allows not only the follow-up of the tasks, but also the follow-up to the responsible for them. Calendar notifications allow executing activities on time, in addition to checking if there is any failure or delay in the same

The mobile application should improve especially when it comes to upload images

"One of the best project managers in the market"

What do you like best?

It is a very useful collaboration tool, excellent to manage your projects in an organized and easy way in a simple platform to use, it adapts to the needs of any type of project, what makes it one of the most flexible in the market, you can personalize the tickets and share them with your work team

What do you dislike?

Although it is a very useful platform, it seems to be at a stage where it can improve in all aspects, being able to add additional features that make it a better platform than it is already

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were able to include with a single tool the projects that we have in execution allowing managing them quickly and with the lowest possible expense

"Excellent software for the monitoring of projects and workflows"

What do you like best?

It is a base camp like system, with the advantage that it has the option to mark the workflows between departments, it has a follow-up calendar for the due dates of each task, and a digital cloud for the backup of all the material attached to each project, chronologically handles the assignment of responsibilities.

What do you dislike?

Manages several software within the same application, which forces the user to download them and learn their operation, generating a complexity in the management of it.

The free version of the system has a short term, which means that it is not allowed to analyze if it is an eligible system or not, unless in the trial version some small project is developed that does not require more execution time

Recommendations to others considering the product

Extension in the trial periods of the system, and more options in the paid versions.

Greater storage capacity for files.

The additional software that manages this should have a previous tutorial for its greater understanding

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Develop a small workflow between support line managers, and substantive management. The first less complex since they are more mechanical administrative areas and the monitoring of the tasks of each management was very easy to determine. However, in the substantive managements it was more complex because of the diversity of creative assignments for those areas and the monitoring of multiple tasks did not allow me to see at first sight where there was something new. However it was functional

"Favro is honestly both the best and simplest task and planning system I've used"

What do you like best?

That you can edit data in any kind of view, whether from backlog, boards, roadmap, calendar. And that Favro autogenerates much of that stuff. Saves me so much time.

What do you dislike?

Hmm. Nothing much. Maybe that you can't just buy it on a per user basis.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great for ongoing task management and planning.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Favro for marketing idea prioritization, backlog and task planning, roadmap and as content calendar and editorial process. Basically Favro replaced Trello to give us all the stuff that Trello doesn't. Without me doing anything, we automatically get a roadmap for our entire marketing as well as a sharable content calendar. Also, the tag system works well for task and idea prioritization, because it allows you to get a great overview.

"Intuitive Design and Cross-Collaboration Options Help Manage Products"

What do you like best?

The feature I like best about Favro is the ability to integrate Google Drive files right into the platform. Instead of a sharing a document, sheet, etc. through Drive (and risking it getting list in a colleague's inbox), I can share through Favro inside our own organized tasks and boards. That way, everything is sorted in one place and easy to access.

What do you dislike?

When onboarding new employees onto Favro (or those unfamiliar with the platform), it can be a little difficult to train and get them used to. While anyone can start creating tasks and organizing their platform in seconds, there is a bit of a steep learning curve when it comes to really understanding how to fully utilize the platform. However, to address this, Favro offers a number of video tutorials and great customer support.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take the time to learn the platform and understand how it can help your organization before just jumping right in. There are a lot of features many users don't know about, such as lanes, estimations and cycle times.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Favro is helping break down some of the barriers in our organization. When everyone across teams uses Favro, it's a lot easier to streamline the review process during a large-scale project. Instead of constantly adapting to different teams' communication preferences and programs, there is now a unified way to manage projects across all areas of the organization.

"Manage your projects in an orderly and simple way with this incredible platform"

What do you like best?

You can complete the management of your projects from planning to monitoring, you can manage small and large projects and adapt the tools of the platform to your needs. You can organize the tasks of your work team on boards, generate reports that allow you, all this on the same platform

What do you dislike?

I do not find details on this platform except that it is not very well known to people

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We manage our projects efficiently and meet the scheduled dates, assign tasks, take our projects effectively

"Good for light task and project management"

What do you like best?

That you can create a workflow and be as detailed as you wish, creating checklists, setting start and end dates, assigning responsible members in one card. It's like Trello or Asana on steroids.

Every card can be a small part of a project or a small project itself. You create standard phases and move cards through all of them, until completion.

You can share your dashboard with your team and with clients and everyone can interact. You can even block certain interactions. Like blocking a client to move a card to finished, or blocking a junior partner from advancing a card from Ready for Approval to Approved-Finished.

Favro lets you track time spent on particular projects if you bill your hours. Then, you can go find all the time spent by each member.

What do you dislike?

I would like to see a graphic timeframe (like a Gantt graph). I would like to have more precise time tracking capabilities. If you have too many projects going on at the same time, it can become messy.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Look into the integrations. It's a good tool for small to medium-size time-bound projects. Not good for complex or where extreme granularity is needed.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Project and taks management.

"It's like Trello on steroids!"

What do you like best?

The single best thing about this is it has the power and simplicity of Trello, but a more wholistic approach to project management. Simply put, you can have multiple boards viewable at once, in different areas, and give other people custom views based on their needs. Perfect for solo project managers as well as people with larger teams.

What do you dislike?

I'd like the app to be faster and the mobile app to be more responsive. More specifically it'd be great to see some thought put into taking the mobile app into the future as far as the UX goes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't look at the price, just give it a try, in my mind it's well worth the time you'll save.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Managing multiple projects and businesses at once. It's saving my life!

"Great for long distance collaborations!"

What do you like best?

Favro is a very solid app for hosting online meetings and keeping tabs on projects with various sized groups. I appreciate the different pricing options and the easy workflow and user interface. It has a "Import Board from Trello" option too for people making the jump.

What do you dislike?

I've had some issues importing from Trello. Although Favro allows users to add features, this isn't always straightforward.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make use of the built-in Kanban and SCRUM support.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This has been great for overseas collaborations and managing larger research/engineering projects.

"Young tool to organize the work"

What do you like best?

I like that it's a basic tool to organize the company work, it has an API to develop complementary tools or plugins to connect between tools.

What do you dislike?

Maybe is quite complicated to see the relations between cards, it could be more simple.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The relations between cards could be better.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helps me to organize the sprints of my team and give me a snapshot of the status of the spring quickly

"Favro Great for Near-Term Planning"

What do you like best?

Favro has an easy to use, attractive interface. There is tight integration between "Backlogs" and "Boards", with an emphasis on "Sprint" Style Planning.

What do you dislike?

Favro is not useful for mid- to long-term planning. Use this tool if you want to place an emphasis on "tasks" and "task completion".

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use this if you don't have the time or resources to commit to setting up and preparing a detailed mid- to long-term project plan.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Favro for aggressive tracking and planning of work in 2-week sprints.

"Really helpful planning and management platform"

What do you like best?

Very friendly interface. All cards have many features and integrations like with Jira. Moving cards between sprints is very easy and cards can be linked to each other.

What do you dislike?

Prices are little steep.It used to be free, but now its getting expensive.Also, the technical support is not really great for the asking price.I once had a technical question and the technical help, instead of giving me a personalized answer, was directing me towards some links which were not helpful

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it everyday to plan and collaborate among teams.We plan our weekly tasks using favro which enables us to foresee any obstacles along the way and also backtrack issues

The permissions system, and limitations for the free version is prohibitive for students and pre revenue startups.

Good for smaller things, not ok for scaling up.

Nothing about the product specifically but we are transitioning out old tools so duplicating notes can be a hassle
