Favro Software


 

Favro is a project management and collaboration tool with which developers, marketers and executives can plan, track and evolve ideas. Designed to suit the size and needs of any project, Favro allows users to add features and integrations as they need them. Favro offers team boards, scalable backlogs and aggregated reports alongside built-in Kanban and SCRUM support.

Projects are broken down into different tasks using Favro’s breakdown feature, which allows each task to be monitored individually. The solution 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 into both two-factor authentication and Single Sign-On (SSO) services from Google and Github. The solution is integrated with Google Drive and Dropbox to allow files to get attached to the planning board.

Good

Pros

Tags, timeline, velocity chart, burn-down charts, integration with slack, assortment of formatted data like checklist, description, attachments. Easier to connect between user and tech stories

Cons

Unable to get charts based on tags filter. Try implementing as it would help create single board which captures all team effort rather than creating board feature wise

Getting all of my clients/projects orgenised as my calander and in control of my work and personal goals and tasks.

Pros

After Reviewing 10 most known Managing Apps - I have decided on Favro - it was a hard and long process which took me about a little over a month in which I have used all my "free trials" periods on all of them.
Favro was the most suitable for my way of working - I can freely and quickly load my tasks for various projects as they come later I can deal with each of them and assigned each of them to team members and keep track of my progress - it's visually very appealing and enables me to distinct right away where I am standing. I have checked 10 Apps - were left with two which Afro was one of the two.
The mobile follow up is wonderfull too i can be in a meeting and look at my check list of that meeting and have no need of printouts of my meeting notes and use it to update my meeting notes as the meeting goes along.

Cons

I wanted to share one of my clients (projects) with his dashboard and found out accidentaly he could olso see my own privet dashbord - i have immidiatly cancled the option - so far hadn't have the time to learn to overcome that problem - i guess it's my lack of experience of operating Favro.

It's a positive experience and so far I've used it for two projects I manage (invited 20+ co-workers to join). I hope the integration with other tools especially JIRA are even more thorough (it's functional right now, but not to a point I can just rely on that without manual touches)

Pros

Features. Features. Features. It's fully packed with features I dreamed of in Trello and now all available and even better. The visual style is appealing and the product itself is solid

Cons

There're some rough edges in how the web app is loaded in the browser. For large boards it takes a long pause, sometimes so long that I wonder if the board is empty.

The pricing is on the expensive side. Lack of a personal / individual plan is also unfortunate so I can't use that for both professional and personal projects.

It just works and has very few bugs. It's easy to keep the oversight over projects and also the different views and collections are unique.

Moving from JIRA to Favro as a test. It works okay for small team, but not as robust as JIRA for bigger project, managing multiple team on same project and doing QA testing. 80% of the team doesn't like Favro and wants to go back to JIRA.

Pros

Ease of use and UX is well done.
The support is great and respond in a timely manner with useful feedback.

Cons

It doesn't scale well, managing big software projects is a pain. Can't really be used for QA. Everything is shared between projects, which is gets hard to manage when there are a lot.
For example, I would like to be able to create project groups that share the same cards and tags, but not for all projects.
It is lacking a lot of feature for reporting and planning. You can't print cards (The website says it does but the feature is not there)
Thankfully there is an API that is well made where you can use it for your own needs, thats what we did to be able to print cards, but it require additional work that shouldn't be needed when you pay for a product such as Favro.

Amazing, it’s really helped us track our workload!

Pros

It’s features and capabilies are far superior to others on the market, yet it is still easy enough to use to allow the whole team to take advantage of the platform.

Cons

I would like cards to be synced across the areas in which they are held. For example if I complete a card then I’d like it to move or be marked as complete on the backlog also.

As a freelancer, I need to be very well organised and manage expectations with customers, this tool has helped me to have more structure and introduce Agile in the way I work while keeping it simple and easy for customers to see what is happening with their projects.

Pros

It's simple to use and understand. I like how I can also manage a collection per customer and they can access and see everything with transparency

Cons

Sometimes it takes too much time to load, and some of what I'd consider most used navigation requires too many clicks, like adding a card from one collection's board to another.

Our overall experience is very positive. We are extremely satisfied with the system, as we use it to both manage our day-to-day tasks and our various projects - both client projects and internal projects. We use a mix of agile and waterfall methodology when planning and managing our projects and the possibility to create a project plan (tree view) and have a corresponding board next it, is one of our favorite features!

Pros

The flexibility of being able to set up multiple collections with boards and lists (even project plans). It makes a mix of conventional project management methods (waterfall) and agile methodology work in one software. Furthermore the reports which can be created out of the software bring even more value to managing the business with Favro.

Cons

One thing that is missing for our organization is the possiblity to sort the cards when looking at "Cards assigned to me".

Overall a very smooth experience.

Pros

Ease of movement of cards and better UI and UX as compared to competitors and alternatives like JIRA and Trello.

Cons

Moving cards to other boards without having to drag them (eg. via the "Add to Button") should be made more obvious.

It has been good overall - I think they just need to making updates and improvements more often.

Pros

I like how it flows and how cards can be in multiple areas. I like how the cards can be built out and be pretty custom. While we haven't been able to get them 100% for our needs - we've been able to get close. I also like how you can see a full history of everything that has happened. The workflow rules are nice (these seem pretty basic though - would love more options for these).

Cons

I'll be honest, I don't know the history of Favro or how long it has been around. We've been using it for around 4-5 months and it is replacing some of the other tools we were using. But the impression I am getting from it is that it is still in a beta phase. The main bones are there but it could really use additional features, or improvements made to the ones there. I haven't seen a single update since I've started using it in this time, and when you reach out asking if Favro does something they are helpful to offering other ways you can use the tool if the feature you want isn't available, but if the feature isn't there they just say they will make note but don't offer any other information. As someone who also works for a SAAS company I am not expecting any etas on anything, but having been almost 5 months and no updates to anything have happened it makes me wonder what's going on...

One of my biggest pet peeves is with the custom fields, I wish there was an option to hide them from the card face because on some of our teams we had to stop using them because it made the cards too long. This was disappointing because they were super helpful, but when you have 30-40 cards in one lane - it's a lot to scroll through.

Something else that needs improvement is alerts and knowing what all is assigned to you. I could have 100+ cards at one time and "my feed" is not an easy way for me to see what all I need to do.

We needed a tool to help manage the production of hundreds of website clients. This tool allows for that, and what's more, we can create different boards for the different departments that each project follows through. The problem, however, is that we need to be able to filter reports by member and tag (for productivity reports) but the reports available aren't able to be isolated that way. The drag- drop function also gets tedious when you have more than 10 cards in every row.

Pros

I like the at-a- glance view of projects and lists.

Cons

In a company and department like mine that has anywhere from 50-100 separate projects at a time, the board gets lengthy and big very fast. There's no condensed view and the reports you can run are limited. Filtering is nice to show a smaller sampling, but you can't use other functions while viewing workflow in a filter.

Favro works, but I haven't been very happy with it because I can't fit more than a few cards on the screen since the widths are fixed and they take up a large percentage of the space for little reason. It's a joke that I can't have more than 2 columns visible at a time.

Pros

collections are a cool and useful feature. I like the flexibility.

Cons

The cards are not responsive to the screen. The page is set to horizontal scroll instead of fitting the width of each card so that every column can fit on the screen. Moving cards messes up their order when being dragged around because cards moving into other columns don't automatically drop to the bottom, they can go anywhere.

Additionally, the card number / ID, doesn't show up on the card itself unless you open it or resort to adding it as a custom field and type the ID by hand for every ticket. Are you kidding me?
