Pros: Style, simplicity, efficiency

Cons: Lack of more advanced features

Overall: I'm a big fan of the clean layout and intuitive interface. The only thing keeping this from a higher rating, would be the ability to more easily see subtasks on cards.

Recommendations to other buyers: User test big projects w/ many people

Pros: the accessibility and flexibility of the boards

Cons: I would say not being able to have a live chat with team on the mobile via favro

Overall: After moving from Trello I have experienced how effective this platform is for scrums, sprints and getting creative projects to the finish line collectively.

Great design and easy functionalities, would recommend to anyone.

Recommendations to other buyers: think favro's doing well definitely an upgrade from trello!

Pros: Great UI and UX design, very useful for keeping track of big projects with lots of moving parts

Cons: no linked file preview on cards,

confusing to navigate large collections

Overall: We've recently made the transition from Trello to Favro, and on the whole we're very happy with the quality of the software and the service provided. The only constructive criticism i have is:

- having to download linked files to preview them, in trello you could view files linked to cards in browser without having to download them first. This is an essential functionality that favro is sorely lacking!

- when you have multiple long collections of different long lists, it can become quite complicated to navigate around the collections, maybe an expanded set of shortcuts allowing you to jump from collection to collection and card to card could be quite useful in terms of the user experience. At the moment it can be quite tricky to find specific cards in big collections.

Cheers,

Damiaan

Recommendations to other buyers: If working with large collections be careful to file all your cards easily at the start to save a headache later on

Pros: User interface

Cons: A few small features that could be added, but I'm sure they will come with time.

Overall: So far my office uses Favro in several different ways, depending on project requirements. It helps us all stay on the same page with projects, despite being in different time zones.
I find it particularly useful for Kanban boards, and showing different boards at different times, so you can track everything on one screen. Super support from staff who are looking to improve the service constantly.

Comments: I like the overall look and feel of the product but some of the interaction and features feels a bit wierd. We link a lot of cards between collections/boards to expose them to different teams and in different constelations but it takes a bit of effort to do as you have to add each list to the new collections. There are also some bits regarding user rights the are unclear or missing, like why you can't add a list to some collections. It would also be great to be able to invite external user to do certain operations like uploading files to a card, changing order and moving between certain lists/columns.

Great PM Tool which addresses so many issues which others out there don't!

Comments: We moved to Favro after all the bottlenecks we faced with Trello.
Few reasons:
- ability to view multiple boards in the same view
- a nice and tidy TODO list per user (no need to go through zillion tickets to figure out what I should do next and what is the prio for the next ticket)
- high level reporting

Without these features, Trello had become unusable for our use cases.

We have great faith in Hansoft as a company and we believe they will take Favro to be the next balanced PM tool which suits both lightweight as well as heavyweight process oriented teams.

Customer support/success peeps have been so great that we can't really complain about anything there. They have worked at lightning speed to resolve feature requests, bug fixes and on-boarding!

Big thanks to Favro team and all the best for the future release! Keep up the great work.

Pros: Simpler UI than trello

Cons: Price tag

Overall: I am communicating with another internal team and have been collaborating with them on their board. Unfortunately I wasn't especially sold on the comparison versus trello. It just isn't worth the cost.

Recommendations to other buyers: Think about what exactly makes it worth the price and present that better to the customer

Comments: Me and my colleagues have been using Trello for a few years now. Since discovering Favro, more and more people have moved to it. Favro allwows more flexibility in sorting/arranging/parenting cards and in the way it can display your card collection.

Favro offers amazing customer support and are very quick to implement new feature requests and fix bugs. Would totally recommend this to others as the best substitute for Trello or other similar services

I am very happy with Favro after trying a lot of other applications.

Pros: Ease to use, drag and drop of cards, tasklists... there are so many features which are very handy for organizing project elements.

Cons: Sometimes when user has to use lower screensize / resolution his option to scroll across the row goes away ( could be due to non standard mouse ).
When you expand a section and then work on its cards and then minimize it, its location changes to some other place and then you have to find and scroll back to next item, this wastes a lot of user time, it would be helpful if the location of minimized item stays the same so he can just expand the next row and go over it.

Overall: Hi Team,

Favro definitely has been very helpful in keeping track of our projects and tasks.

It can do some improvements like when someone minimizes a row, it should keep track of the last working section and not scroll to something which I have experienced multiple times.

Secondly an option to enable a scroll to the row ( which can be enabled by user so if his OS is detecting the row size and then enabling scroll and not showing in case he is using non standard mouse )

Let me know if you have questions, feel free to reach me at my contact information below.

Recommendations to other buyers: Really like everything about the software.

Pros: Powerful feature set.

Cons: Steep learning curve. I still done have all the basics down

Overall: Favro has replace all of my usage of Trello. There are still some areas that need work and there is a learning curve to Cards and Collections and how to mange them all between teams but once understood it is powerful feature set.

Pros: Better for a project with lots of collaboration

Cons: can't easily see cards that are just assigned to me besides in the single todo list view which I am not a fan off because it stacks everything i need to do and makes it hard to parse, is my todo blocked, in progress?

Overall: My company made the switch to Favro and it has been _fine_

The number one thing i miss about favor is the ability to filter just cards that were assigned to me. I understand that there is a todo list on the right side that lists thing assigned to me but I can't parse it as well as when I could see trello items assigned to me and which columns they were in. For a large project with lots of collaboration favro does seem better as things can belong to multiple categories and multiple people can complete there portion of the task at once. Mainly I just wish I could use favro as usual and just hit a checkbox to see only cards that I am assigned to across the whole project.

Recommendations to other buyers: It seems to have a lot more overhead than Trello and I would never use it for a personal project over trello. Again Favro isn't bad just at times confuses me more

Favro is mature enough, in my opinion, to use it full time in production (I am using it in 2 projects) and I can only assume that with time it will get better.

Pros: no limitations for number of users or objects in the app, multiple boards

Cons: more core features, hierarchy tree in backlog

Overall: Really Great App!
I used it on mobile with notifications and on Desktop where functionality of it is really rich.
This tool is much faster, easier and more flexible than JIRA and much more powerful than Trello (especially multiple boards and backlogs).
Also it fits to Software development projects, i guess it fits for any types of project: enterprise or personal or small teams startups.
Definitely worth evaluation.

P.S ( and it's very flexible - you can create your own rules :-) )

Recommendations to other buyers: try to use this app for your projects, more likely you will switch to it from your current tool

Comments: I've used Favro mainly for personal projects, and am very happy with it for that purpose. I can reach my boards from my phone, tablet and obviously my laptop so I can update wherever I am. Usually I will think of something when I'm out and about and up until now I've had to rely on notebooks and my memory. I'm glad I don't have to do that anymore.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you're looking for a easy solution that is not only powerful but free (if you don't need power features that is) this is the tool for you.

Overall: Ive tried vasecamp, asana, trello and wrike plus many others, only to be frustrated by limitations. Favro has been fantastic at mapping to the way my team and I work. The apps and integrations allow for all the additional power we need and can be customised to suit each person. I love it!
