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.

Pros

This service is fantastic and provides such an easy to use platform, even for people with limited experience of collaboration tools or kanban style project boards- good integration with to do lists aswell

Cons

Primarily used the free version and found I had enough functionality for main tasks- I was put off slightly by the paid plans as the price per user meant for medium teams the price for the small business I was in was too high

Order and ease of tracking in all business.

Pros

How simple it looks, the user experience, the customer service, the versatility. We use it in our company to both manage our internal management affairs and our projects - every feature works for both.

Cons

I wouldn't say "like least", but just something extra we figured we needed for the "to-do list" part. We have some business we need to follow up on a really long term and some business that needs to be dealt within a time period. So we first used to assign members to all of them, but it began to be somewhat tiring to distinguish which ones are urgent and which ones are not in the to-do list, individually. We had to remove members from the long term ones since we cannot seperate them in the to-do list. So maybe some kind of seperate customizable grouping would be really good in the to-do list.

Ability to build a customized workflow quickly, with the ability to continuously improve upon process and features required as the project progresses. Built in applications such as Default Values, Defined Workflow, Timesheets, and Cycle time make optimizing your workflow for efficiency virtually effortless. Collaboration and notification features are outstanding. Quickly integrate with external applications through pre-built integrations and RestAPI.

Pros

Mulitple boards in a collection is probably the major drawcard for us;
Separating the backlog from the boards and then having multiple boards within the backlog is brilliant;
Having a ToDo across all collections and boards list is very handy;
Creating relationships between cards;
Custom background images while not important really make the product a to work with;

Cons

These are 'nice to haves', and don't really impact on using the product to any major degree: Slack integration needs some work, I would really love the interaction between the two to be in both directions - Slack shows the updates to cards etc, while Favro cards can be added/edited with Slack commands;
Can't organise Collections into groups;
Switching between organisations is tedious - could be streamlined so you remain logged in any number of organisation;
Would prefer if I could limit tags to specific collections;

A quick overview of all my important tasks to complete. It's easy to customize to your needs.

Pros

It's a very clear, very neat software. I like the quick overview you have with the cards of all your important tasks. It's very easy to customize.

Cons

I really don't like that when you have a lot of cards in a column you need to scroll all the way down below to adjust the view from left to right. It really bothers me and overall consumes a lot of time, I cannot miss.

Ability to grow our company to take it to the next level. We think of Favro as Trello's big brother! :)

Pros

Having both the option to add boards and backlogs on one collection, and being able to add unique features to each board.

Cons

Takes a while to get used to. Some Apps and features are not easy to use and lose time to remember each time how to use this or that.

Excellent visibility, a great way to motivate the team and keep them focused on the most relevant stories on a sprint. Overall a very elegant solution for managing software organizations.

Pros

Favro is very easy to use and they continuously deliver new functionality that makes a lot of sense. It's almost like they read my mind.

I've tried other similar solutions in the market and nobody adapts so nicely to an agile/scrum development process. I can keep track of multiple developments, testing and implementation teams in the same tool.

Cons

Since Favro is really a "first of breed" product, some desirable functionality is just not there just yet. However, they're way further ahead than any other similar solution and they deliver new functionality very often.

I do not like the fact that some of the key features are in the top version/pay plan. I do try to get the best out of what I actually have in my version.

It's easy to use collaboratively in a cloud based environment.

Pros

Card based tracking seamlessly tied with nested backlog lists...that alone makes this worth it. There's also a ton of features that tie right into the card based method; todo lists, calanders, etc. It's all very handy and simple to use...and very powerful too.

Cons

Can get a bit slow with 1000s of cards that all have preview thumbnails. An "autohide" images might speed things up a bit?

User friendly, easy to learn to manage and move boards from one person to another, like that I can see where in the process my colleagues are.

Should be possible to change the color of the boards so you can se wich one that are urgent or wich one that can lay for a while.

Organization and insight into what the rest of the team is working on.

Pros

I like that you get notifications when your card is updated. The cards are sorted with different labels and priorities. The priority level and owner labels are also convenient.

Cons

It was a bit harder to switch through calendar, etc with no prior knowledge but this maybe is just experience.

Seamless integration with other departments, which contribute delivering our software faster and much more solid.

Pros

The backlogs, I love the backlogs, they are powerful and quite "visual" to work with, it makes so easy the collaboration between teams inside an organization, communication reach faster the desired recipient, and make easier the tracking operations. Also the possibility to work with several boards at the same time, the potential is about to get real!

Cons

Sadly, the integration with mails is not good enough, also the impossibility to paste images in a comment, that is a big problem for us, we handle a lot of graphical information as aid for diagnosing and bug-catching. I don't like the mobile app as well, it is so confusing to me and not powerful as the browser edition.

Not being restrained like with other similar software like Trello, while also not having to use something clunky like Jira.

Pros

It blows the other similar web-based solutions out of the water! Way more advanced features out of the box, and the Card/Board/Backlog workflow is a perfect in its simplicity while still allowing lots of advance uses. Also it's Swedish!

Cons

Because it's still relatively new, Favro is lacking some features I would like to see. However things are being rolled out at a surprising rate.

everything

Pros

It has fundamentally changed the way we manage and oversee projects. the linear movement of cards across the various boards gives a very visual overview of the state of a project. Having the entire team collaborate across different elements of the project but all feeding back into the favro board, it is the beating hear of everything we do!

Cons

No .pdf preview is very annoying (especially when trello has this....)
Attached images don't appear when searching cards

The flexibility of how to use it , to be able to create a backlog for each project I am running. I was very happy to be contacted by Favro after signing up with advice and ideas of how to use it as an admin person, very useful for my work with Favro. Also, the person contacting me was proffessional and in no way pushy or "sell-y". Which I appreciated.

Cons

I would like to be able to customize it to my company's colors and logo. Overall it could be made "prettier" with different fonts and effects.

This is our team collaboration software and it becomes easy for our Sprint planning for monthly tasks and projects.

Pros

The ability to create boards for each month's Sprint planning helps in organizing as well as giving our team an overall few of what tasks and projects are assigned to each member by cards. For each card, it is easy to track the progress and updates from each team member and this helps in weekly & monthly meetings. Notification alerts helps in getting important updates.

Cons

Few minor UI fixes can improve the software. One thing I would like to see improvement is that for a particular board having lots of cards, the horizontal scroll bar should be fixed at the browser window level so that it becomes easier for user to view other columns in the same board.

It helps me get things done and track the bigger picture tasks as well as the daily tasks for my team.

Pros

It doesn't break. It's purple, and the interface is logically laid out.

Without this tool, my inter-team communication would take a huge hit. I love the tags, I love that I can rearrange the cards on the fly and I love the labels for the card categories.

Cons

The lack of an individual theming system. It would be great if each user could make theme changes to their Favro board that only displays to them. Some people have a harder time with certain colours or simply want to reduce eyestrain during the workday.

It's been helping our productivity. We have managed to get everything from our production workflow to our sales to be in a very good order. Great piece of software!

Pros

For a team under five persons Favro is super cheap.
We've tried them all (Asana, Trello etc) and none of them has fit us. With favro we are finally getting a tool we use daily without it feeling like it takes up too much time. All of us enjoy using it and have found a great way of managing our time and projects through Favro.

Cons

We really wish there was a better overview of a calender. That way you could set tasks/cards and see your own personal calendar of what has to be done, but also see what your team is working on and deadlines.
