Pros: The mobile friendly platform. The clients I wish to add to the platform are mostly on their phones and this is greatly helpful. The desktop is also very user friendly.

Cons: More advise on setting up an online community (although this could be that I just haven't taken advantage of what you already provide)

Overall: Simplicity. Ease of set up. Ease of use by members.

Hi Scott, We really appreciate the review! Our entire team is happy to learn your satisfaction with the mobile platform. We understand the importance of mobile capability in this day and age so it's important to us that your clients have that working successfully. Regarding finding help setting up an online community, we do have a thorough help center as well as a new checklist feature available in trials to guide you along the way. However we are always looking to improve so thank you for the feedback.

Certainly the most user friendly platform I have experience. I highly recommend it.

Pros: Intuitive and simple. It is also great value for money. The level of one to one support is exceptional.

Cons: Not the software itself, but the set up guidance notes were not easily found. However, that has now changed.

Overall: It allowed our organisation to quickly and easily create a reliable central communication hub.

Top notch tool for community management, some lack of lists management

Pros: Very userfriendly interface, clear oversight on all activities. Ability to log in as a community member to preview how it looks, and switch back to management side at a single mouse click.

Cons: It is a petty that CMNTY does not contain a better list management system in which we can filter down on specific member sociodemographic items (free fields we introduce in the profile). This is the reason why we aren't using CMNTY to manage our consumer database.

Overall: Satisfied customer, to whom we suggested the tool as a means for her specific questions (setting up an online discussion forum)

Pros: The Design is fantastic.

The mobile design and UX is a real plus.

The Ease of admin makes life easier.

The options and tools within the community are very sophisticated.

Cons: cost - starting cost is expensive.

Social login not easy to implement - should be a basic feature.

a email templates would be better.

using short URL in emails

Overall: I was able to build a community for our members in 1 day that looked professional, was branded as my company and could offer multiple content options

Hi Paul, Your review is much appreciated, thank you on behalf of our entire team! Everybody here is thrilled you are having a fantastic experience with CMNTY - from the design, to the ease of use, to the communication with our team glad this was all amazing for you.

We adopted the platform as our "new Intranet with extranet capabilities" and it works well for that!

Pros: Easy to learn. Like LEGO. Slick but not overdone layout & design capabilities. Great functionality for nice price. Though the platform was not primarily designed for the use we do and see growing, it fulfills most of our needs. We also see @ feel great adoption bij CMNTY company and support. So we trust we find our grow path together.

Cons: We are up to use it with quite a lot of fora & blogs. The directory structure could be more flexible (harmonica functionality). Also a bit more design functionality per blog/forum would be nice. From the information sharing point of view we'ld like to bring more variety in visualisation (like magazines do). Also we are in need of a better/extendable/lay-outable member profile page/stamp per member.

Overall: communication in the team without central persons having to catalyze is great, it connects our virtual team. and it provides us with a logical (cloud based and allways access-able) platform for all our information, questions and idea sharing needs.

Hi Douwe! Thank you for making the comparison with LEGO. That's a huge compliment to us! You'll also be happy to hear that improvements to the discussion structure you mentioned are to be expected soon. We'll let you know when that is released. Thank you so much for taking the time to review our software, and we hope your community keeps adding the value you are already getting from it!

I finally found a platform that could support my community in connecting and collaborating

Pros: It's intuitive to work with as an administrator and user. There's an easy to access Help Center that has answered most questions I have. I like all the features - that my members can have profiles, message each other, contribute to forums, polls, collaborate and use a webshop. It has features that I couldn't find anywhere else for this price range. The customer service has been very attentive and reliable.

Cons: At the basic plan I can't customize as much as I would like. For instance the formatting on my Home page is not that attractive, and I can't add a customized page.

Overall: The ability to connect my community with one another at an affordable price range.
