Favro Software


 

Favro is a project management solution for teams that collaborate with employees, vendors and clients situated in different locations. The software provides project managers with overviews within multiple boards regarding the daily or weekly tasks covered by team members. It also provides backlogs of all projects on a real-time basis.

Favro handles projects from idea generation to completion. The project is broken down into different tasks using Favro’s breakdown feature, which allows each task to be monitored individually. The software has a planning board in which employees can list their tasks and update other team members about task status. The planning board helps users see which projects are being planned versus being executed.

Favro’s cloud-hosted services are ISO certified and teams can opt in to both two-factor authentication and Single Sign-On (SSO) services from Google and Github. The software is integrated with Google Drive and Dropbox to allow files to get attached to the planning board.

Planning, tracking, feedback management

Pros

It's a good middle weight - not too heavy and bulky like JIRA - not too light like Trello. Non tech people on my team understand it pretty easily.

Cons

Card UX can be confusing, like managing where exists, making copies etc. Also do not like the "members" status for people. Would prefer explicit "Assignee" and also "Followers" gets confusing who should be working on a task. Visual design could be modernized too, doesn't feel like a "light and easy" place to work. Dropbox Paper is a good example of what I mean by "light and easy" - Also I have to use a trackball mouse, hard to scroll sideways on boards w/ many columns.

Pros

Good and clear UI.
We can manage BE / BI / Web / Phone clients in one collection.
The tool is "techie" enough for our Devs and simple enough for all other business units in our company.

Cons

What we really miss and what would be a blocker for further usage if our company is doing a good job and grows is the option to build child-relations, dependencies, and status-updates on cards in and between boards. Nice to have would be an option to assign an 'owner' to a card or card families.

Very good functions to structure the own work
Good flexibility
A mighty tool with a lot important functionalities that you need for kanban-based work
Mighty Plugins

Pros

Very good handling
Has most of the features that we need
It's possible to create a good overview of project
Very good concept of structuring collections, boards, lanes and so on
Has a lot of integrations

Cons

- No GitLab integration
- No voting on cards
- Not very user friendly handling of cardtemplates (to much clicks to use it, not possibility to change or update templates - you have to create a new one and delete the old one. There is a lot of space for improvements of functionallity and handling)
- the integrated timetracking is not very useful and also not very friendly in handling

Efficient project management.

Pros

UI design are very good. It is easy to use and good functionality. Web API are good. (but not enough.)

Cons

Server response is not so good, sometimes unstable.

Default Slack integration app is terrible. We have made our own integration from scratch. But web api is not enough, so we needed some hacks.

Pricing is too rough. It should be charged by per a single user.

We needed to develop a tool to satisfy demands for our management. (But it is OK.)

Moving cards in a collection with a lot of boards is sometime glitchy. I can't nest cards and see a reference to the parent card as I do with relations to other boards/backlogs.

It lets us model our complexity so it fits the process we have really well. Let's lots of agile apps out there, but as an agency, you're always working on multiple projects (normal agile doesn't handle this well) the card duplication lets us manage lots of complexity without too much complexity in the interface.

Pros

That the agile flow is modelled and card duplication is nicely solved. This is combined with speed and robustness (reasons we left previous platforms)

Cons

We found a scrolling glitch, and we're concerned about the cost scaling long term. We'd like to invite all our clients to share read-only boards, but that's going to get pricing quickly.

More structure and a better overview for our project.

Pros

Easy to understand and use.
More project structure than in Trello.
Report abilities
More geared towards scrum with estimations (point system).
Clone function.
Distinction between backlog and board
Templates for boards and collections
Copy function

Cons

Relationship between cards difficult to see and check once a ticket is in a board. Subticket relations are hard to maintain and review.

User role/rights management is very rudimentary and needs improving.

Customer fields is a welcome feature.

Several templates per board or backlog are not possible.

Opening a link to card/board/backlog/ etc. will just open that as a singular entity with no ability to move back to the system properly.

Checklist items are not detailed on any of the reports just how much items there are in a list.

Ability to navigate to the next ticket with a keyboard shortcut.

Ability to scroll through pictures if a ticket has more than one attachment.

Ticketnumber is not displayed on tickets when in board view.

Very little export functions for different systems.

It was easy to create roadmap and todo-boards for teams all across the company, share and create "release" boards as a combination of epics between all the teams. That way, we can share the vision and the future of the company based on what people are doing!

Pros

+ Lots of features and integrations with other systems.
+ Great customer support (they are on our slack channel).
+ Public roadmap available for customers.
+ Convention over Configuration, however, is still possible to customize it for your needs.
+ Works well across devices

Cons

- Consumes a lot of memory on the browser, and sometimes get stuck.
- They don't have a desktop app yet.

Easier team and project management

Pros

Reports make it easy for my dev team to use, setup and organization of boards and backlogs are easy. Management of members and guests can also be done easily.

Cons

I would like to see more customization for software development, things like Gantt charts, bug reporting, sprint cycles and scrum scheduling.
Custom colours would be GREAT!

I was looking for a online tool to manage my personal and professional projects with a kanbam/scrum aproach. Favro is the best I've found.

Pros

- Possibility to separate projects in collections
- Possibility to see more than one board on a page
- Lanes (payed feature)

Cons

- Some small features, like Lanes, are payed;
- Price is prohibitive for brazilian users due to the currency converter.

Good balance between easiness and features compared to other solution like Trello or Jira

Pros

Great Link with github making our R&D flow seamless between scrub management and bug triage made in Favro and code and branches on Github.

Cons

Sometimes it is pretty slow, and led some dev to do everything in github.
We forget a lot to hit save and we have lost many time some edition on some card, super frustrating.

Pros

The ability to turn features on and off. For example swim lanes are huge. Another example is the Slack integration. The core functionality is there, but I can also add additional pieces per project as needed.

I also love the fact that if you can use Trello. Favro feels like its older, stronger, smarter brother. After a while, some of my client Trello boards turned into 30 column monstrosities. Favro allows me to turn those into clean organized boards.

LOVE swim lanes. Swim lanes are a Kanban staple and allow me to easily organize my boards vertically and horizontally.

Also love the Backlog elements. Helps keep things organized and contained.

Clients and most people in general get overwhelmed with too much information. Favro allows me to strip away the noise for my clients so they know exactly where to look and what they need to do. For example, I can hide the backlogs, I can minimize the boards I don't care about. Less noise = more focus.

Cons

I wish the card templates were dynamic. In other words, I create a template, and after updating the card template it updates all the other templates moving forward.

It makes our daily tasks much more managable. Especially the ones with multiple users working on the same project.

Pros

I love the way cards can be shared across multiple boards. This makes our business tasks much easier to manage as different departments have different access levels for each board. The ability to add media files is also a fantastic feature.

Cons

We used to use Hansoft before the switch over. I feel Favro is lacking a decent burndown feature. The option to just show the title of a card would be really helpful. With the ability to maximise the full card if you are working on a project.

We can organise a huge backlog without it being in the way during each sprint. We can divide our board into several regions for each feature area in our product.

Cons

With a huge board it can get quite slow. It would be useful to have columns we can hide when we don't need them.
