Good way to plan the tasks and most important good way to communicate with your coworkers.

Overall my team is extremly happy with it. As I mentioned above it provided us with the flexibility we needed also the shared space of discutions and notes is something that we love!

Pros

The software is relatively simple and offers good onboarding with detailed videos that were provided on YouTube. I loved the fact that you can structure the tasks the way you like and after estimation you can see a visual representation in the calendar tab, personally that helps me a lot. Another thing I like is that you can download the application on your phone and be always up to date with the progress of your team. The product offers good integrations with your email and even storage places such as DropBox. Once you connect your email the events are going to be exported in the 'Feed' section and that is extremely helpful. The project is perfectly suitable for big but also small companies like Startup Central, because it is easier to organize the tasks in projects for the different departments.

Cons

1.What annoys me is that the application on the phone logs you out after shord period of time. 2.Personally, I am experiencing difficulties using the 'calendar' tab and connecting the tasks such as which one is sequance of the other. 3.The autocorrect/red underlining in the text areas is disabled, so if you make a mistake such as 'relavitely' does not get underlined in red and you can completely miss it out!

Reasons for switching to BasicOps

In Planner you lack a lot of functinolities that BasicOps provides such as: 1. Better overview and structure over the tasks 2. Better interaction between the responsible people assigned to the tasks – discussion tab/attach files/estimate. 3. After taking on a big task – can be separated on small tasks each of the small tasks have their own ‘space’ for discussions or attached files. 4. Now each action is being logged in the ‘Feed’ and the whole team can see how each one of us progress with their own tasks. 5. We can add external team (such as the board members).

Outstanding software! Couldn't do without it.

Love it!!!!!

Pros

Love that I can put all my task so I can manage them, love that I can date them and move them based on priority. I also like the projects which we use quite a bit. I also like that you can save documents within a task.

Cons

I wish I could put a time on a task. I also wish that when you create a task it would time stamp it.

Reasons for choosing BasicOps

Worked so well with all the different task we have.

Response from BasicOps

Thanks for the review! We know that keeping projects organized with dates, deadlines, and priorities helps all teams be successful!

An Easy-to-Use Platform with an Intuitive Interface

It's been a fairly easy transition moving away from project management with Google Sheets and towards BasicOps. The platform allows me to structure my day quickly, ensuring I always know what tasks I have ahead of me. It's also easy to stay in touch with my teammates by communicating at the task level and assigning specific tasks for them to contribute to the project at hand.

Pros

I like how user-friendly this platform is. With the simple tutorials provided, it's easy to hit the ground running and start creating tasks and projects right away. I also love the ability to integrate with the Google Docs and Gmail.

Cons

I would like to see a feature for recurring tasks, with the ability to set when to have the tasks recur.

Basic Ops review

Organization, visibility, and efficiency are realized with this software. However, the above features listed could make it more user-friendly.

Pros

Easy to adjust notification settings, lets you know when you have overdue task, easy to assign tasks to others or self. Easy visibility for organizing folders/clients

Cons

Not user friendly in a few areas. -Not sure how to set project priority level, event though it says its a feature -Can create a task in a project folder on view, but need to click into project to set due date -Notes can disappear

Keeps everyone in the loop.

We are having a great experience using BasicOps. It always works as expected and rarely do we need to call tech support.

Pros

BasicOps is working great for our small in-house marketing team. The majority of new projects come in thru email. With BasisOps integration, projects are easy to create and tasks are quick and to assign. It keeps everyone on track until project completion.

Cons

I wish that it retained my Filter and Sort preferences so I would not have to reselect every day. I would like to click to view Excel or Word files without having to download them. Similar to how it handles jpg and png files. Does BasicOps offer training? These may be current features that I am not aware of.

Reasons for choosing BasicOps

The cost was more in line with my needs for a small team.

Reasons for switching to BasicOps

BasicOps offered more features.

Response from BasicOps

Thank you so much! We're all about helping both small & large businesses stay organized and efficient!
