A fantastic way to document team knowledge

I'm a consultant and one of my projects was getting my e-commerce client's documentation in order and with Almanac it is 10x better than Google Docs. Before docs were all over the place in random people's drives and not shared with the right people. Now that they are in Almanac, it's super simple to see who has access to what, and change permission levels as needed. We've started using Almanac for our weekly meetings as well and assigning tasks for follow-ups. The Inbox page helps keep me on track of what I need to do and what tasks I've assigned to others.

Pros

It feels like the best of Google Docs (real-time collab, great doc editor) with the power of a project management app (tasks and workflows). The ability to create groups makes it really easy to share docs with lots of people, but control permission levels.

Cons

I would like more integrations with other services to make our documentation richer with videos, embed Miro boards, etc. Also comments are sometimes hard to tell the context and what they are attached to in the document.

Reasons for Switching to Almanac

Docs got lost all the time, permissions were a pain to wrangle

Game changer for remote teams

I believe every remote, distributed team should adopt Almanac. It makes asynchronous work meaningfully simpler.

Pros

Almanac is like Notion, but fast, and with their git-like branch features, it's built for all users to feel empowered to suggest changes to company documentation.

Cons

I can't complain. The team is continuing to ship meaningful improvements every couple of weeks, and that's all I can ask for.

Early Days

Outstanding value, core features unique in the market: I feel like our team will have the documentation home base we’ve been missing.

Pros

Fast, easy to use, and appropriately scoped as a document collaboration and knowledge base. Git style version control really makes “asynchronous collaboration” on business processes possible.

Cons

It’s early days and there are still some edges of the software that need improvement

Reasons for Choosing Almanac

Value to price ratio

Reasons for Switching to Almanac

Google docs version control and organization features are barely functional.

Understanding Tech Space

Pros

experts in the industry contributing templates and advice in professional resusable templates as well as social aspect of the platform

Cons

coming from Analytics/ML background, would be nice to have a Data/Analytics category since this is what supposedly drives companies these days. Lot of complaints from my colleagues is that it is a not-so well-defined org so there's churn in this part of org's. So having some doc's and processes populated on Alamanc for that would be super dope!

Great platform

Pros

I love the library of information and documents, and the ease of browsing them.

Cons

I would like to have more formats in which I can upload documents yet they won't lose their form, functionality and quality.
