monday.com At A Glance

Good: Monday.com has a unique organizational approach that utilizes color and placement to help manage a team at a glance.
Bad: The Basic plan doesn't include many important project management features, and the interface can appear too cluttered when there are numerous users, comments and boards.
Bottom Line: A project management software that helps teams organize and understand their workload through glanceable visuals.

Product Overview

Monday.com (formerly dapulse) is a cloud-based project management software that simplifies the way teams manage workloads and communicate.

The solution features color-coded boards that allow users to quickly check which projects are in progress, which tasks are finished and where team members are stuck. These boards are also organized in a way that conveys due-dates and the relationships between assignments.

Users can choose to view the board based on Status, Text, Person, Timeline, or Date. This allows project managers to easily find users who are over/underworked and balance out workloads. All team communication takes place on each board to help eliminate confusion.

Monday.com offers four main pricing plans: Basic, Standard, Pro and Enterprise. An online pricing calculator shows the costs of each plan for a range of five to 200+ users. Each tier can be billed monthly, annually or every two years. Paying yearly saves users 18% while paying every two years saves 32%.

Features

Centralized management with boards – With monday.com, everything is managed with a board. This is color-coded and visually organized to help you see who’s working on a task, project, mission and to-do and where they are in the process. For example, team members can put a “Stuck,” “Working on it” or “Done” status on each task.

Pulses for organized communication – All communication on monday.com takes place within the context of a board. Rows, called “pulses”, are added to the relevant board and can include comments and file attachments. Users can send messages to specific people or the entire team. Notifications for pulses take place in real time via the desktop and mobile apps.

Visual organization – With meaningful colors and board placement, managers can glance to understand how each project and team member is progressing. This helps to ensure that all deadlines will be met and that new assignments are properly delegated/assigned.

Invite clients – Clients can be invited as guests to view a certain board and see the progress of their project at anytime.

Advanced search – Search through images, updates, projects and assignments with no date limit.
