Great - customer service is awesome and the tools is simple to use.

Pros

We moved from having our content on an excel spreadsheet to this, and having the calendar view is AMAZING.

Cons

I don't like getting notifications everytime someone moves content, but there is a way to turn off noticatifications, I believe, so that's nice.

Kayla, we're thrilled your content team is finding DivvyHQ easy to use and a worthy upgrade to spreadsheets. You're right about notifications, there is a way to turn off notifications you don't want to receive in your account profile under notifications. Thank you for your awesome feedback.

While not perfect, DivvyHQ has made it easier for my high-volume content team to collaborate, stay organized and continue producing quality content that drives results for our clients.

Pros

My favorite feature of DivvyHQ is the way it can be customized to meet the needs of almost any organizational framework with custom workflows.

Cons

Least favorite part of DivvyHQ is its ease-of-use. Training new team members on how to use the software can be an intimidating, sometimes counter-intuitive, process.

Much better than what we had before, it's really nice to contain all content production tasks in one website. Divvy functions as my project manager. Before this, we were using Basecamp and Google Spreadsheets, sometimes things slip through the cracks between the two. The calendar function is nice so we can anticipate when a project will come to our team.

Pros

This software allows you to request work, organize projects into tasks, and see all project deadlines laid out on a calendar. You can create and save filters to see individual campaigns, and see what your team is working on easily. I log in every day and can see what my deadline are for that week, and what is coming in the next 7 days.

Cons

The template system for requests can be confusing, and since there are a few places to place comments they can get lost.

I'd describe the Divvy team as helpful and our overall experience as a positive one.

Pros

My team chose Divvy to help organize our editorial content. We wanted calendar views and a simpler way to navigate the production process. Divvy has been what we expected in that regard. The new custom calendar views are a plus. I'd recommend it to someone who wants to see all of their content across multiple channels in one space.

Cons

Some of the features still aren't intuitive and require extra clicking. We've also had a lot of difficulty with our email Analytics dashboards.

Overall I'd say Divvy does about 3/4 of what we'd like it to do. I think it's a little over-priced, and it's annoying to have them always dinging us if we add a new user. One price should include a reasonable amount of users -- say up to 50 -- on a corporate account. And it's not about the dollars so much as it is the hassle of getting a new PO and all that stuff.

Pros

DivvyHQ has a lot of handy features and works well as a shared calendar for content. The support is excellent -- when I have a question or problem they usually respond in just a few hours.

Cons

Divvy is a little tough to get up to speed on. In some ways it suffers from feature creep, where too many bells & whistles get in the way of a more intuitive interface. I can't imagine anyone using the Wordpress auto-post thing -- most content managers want to control all the WP minutiae within the blog site. The tasks feature may be handy for more detail-oriented folks but I tried it and it just made a mess of my calendar, cluttering it up with a ton of stuff that just confused everyone.
The main thing missing for our team with Divvy is what we get from a simple Excel spreadsheet: the ability to see all of our content in grid form, with authors, artwork, deadlines, etc. I think it may ultimately be possible to do it, but it's a heckuva lot harder than doing it in Excel -- and then we wind up with duplicate lists.

Divvy definitely had an initial learning curve, and I am only using it because my team supports a content team. My team mainly uses it to communicate with them and to keep track of our task list. Before, we were keeping track of our tasks manually so this automated system is so much less work.

Pros

I am a visual person so I like to see my tasks/deadlines in a calendar view so I can see how my week looks. I like that each view is highly customizable in terms of filtering.

Cons

This software is almost so powerful and customizable that it can be a little overwhelming if you just want to perform some simple tasks.

Sometimes I don't love the interface.. for example, when viewing a content item's comments I wish those comments didn't live in 25% of the browser. It makes the conversation hard to read.

It's easy to keep everyone up to date on the status of every project. Tasks and due dates can be seen on a calendar or in a list. It's great to be able to define workflows for every type of content.

Cons

Often updates to the software lead to problems, like when a new version came out and suddenly we could no longer print calendars in color (which we need to do to discuss at our meetings) or when all of the notification settings were reset for all users.

Working as 'one team' is one of our core company values. DivvyHQ enables cross-department collaboration and a shared platform to keep track of deadlines and assignments.

It always offers a good indicator of workload for individuals and teams, making it easier to set tasks and priorities.

Pros

The biggest asset of DivvyHQ for me is the Content Editor. As it is HTML based, any formatting or embeds are compatible with our own website's CMS. This means content can be directly copied across and ultimately saves time.

The team behind Divvy have been welcoming of ideas and suggestions, even implementing certain tools after a request is made. Any time there has been an issue, they have been quick to respond and help.

Cons

Notifications of comments and status updates are often categorised as spam. This is, of course, not entirely down to Divvy but it does somewhat defeat the purpose of a collaborative platform.

Also, it's very easy to accidentally lose work by closing the tab or window. DivvyHQ have added a dialogue window to avoid this when navigating internally, but there are no prompts to save work when you exit the site altogether. This is largely a user issue but would improve the customer journey.

Overall the tool meets our needs and is very easy to use. Now that we have it all set-up we rely heavily on the tool as a team. It helps us to schedule our internal communications and reduce overlap between messages we have going out.

We have had minimal technical issues and the tool never goes out of commission. I would definitely recommend this tool to teams looking to streamline/standardize content planning in internal/external marketing.

Pros

-Ease of use
-Implementation of the tool was quick and easy
-Frequently making improvements/enhancements to the tool to make it better

Cons

-wish single-sign on could be improved
-wish could have more flexibility in "view" mode to customize main calendar
-wish had more options to customize calendar content types with custom icons (ability to upload own photo to icon)

This platform has helped our team be more mindful of deadlines and effectively prioritize/schedule what's coming on a monthly basis.

Pros

This is a great way to streamline communications among our Marketing department. The calendar function in particular gives a great birds-eye view of what's coming up for our department and individual tasks assigned out to teammates help keep everyone on track.

Cons

Not something I particularly dislike, but I would love to see the ability for users to customize their dashboards and move their feeds around based on what they find valuable, rather than the cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all view currently provided.

DivvyHQ has facilitated us in mapping out our content strategy and staying on task and organized. They are constantly improving and we have had a great experience using their tools so far.

Pros

Divvy HQ allows for customization so you can structure your calendar so it is most convenient for you. They have several tools to allow you to quickly edit your plans and move them around the calendar easily, which makes the planning process more efficient.

They start you off with a new user training and send updates when new features are added and provide helpful suggestions on creating content regularly through emails.

Cons

There is a bit of a learning curve as it is so customizable, but eventually you get the hang of things.

I do like that you can tag people and that the schedule is visible in the same place as comments on a thread.

I don't like how you cant edit a schedule easily or effectively. I have to double create schedules and it isn't effective in the end. Additionally, notifications have too many bugs and often they change themselves. The columns on the dashboard need to be adjustable and there isn't enough emphasis on my deadlines; other people's are emphasized more.

Overall, my experience with DivvyHQ has been great! I love the functionality of it and the easy-to-use functions.

Pros

The ability to collaborate and schedule content across multiple users within the same account is really great. We use it for all of our scheduling and planning.

Cons

The software can be glitchy at times and can also take a really long time to load. In addition, every time I log out, it auto-loads to the wrong year and month, it's set on July 2017 until I click through to the actual date. I've checked the auto-load function and it's not set to a specific date, so it's a little strange.
