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.

Supported Operating System(s):
Web browser (OS agnostic)

    It’s something my whole job is built on. Can’t live without it.

    Pros

    I love this software. It provides the structure for my scrum team and yet is flexible like Trello. The boards within our account all share a common incremental numbering system so we can refer to cards and have a logical link to them we can share with people outside the company.

    Cons

    I don’t like that you have to click to save some items and hitting enter on the keyboard works other times. It’s not consistent. But the staff are quick to answer questions and add new items to their bug list.

    I got a helper to organize my daily work. Also, my team is better organized and communicated.

    Pros

    I like the way to organize tasks. Also, the communications between the users who are involved in the tasks. I think it's very flexible when you want to order your daily work, you can make cards or just a backlog.
    Finally, there are a lot of custom fields you can add to the cards in order to help understand the work.

    Cons

    I think it hasn't a good tutorial to start using the tool. Also, the backlog should be more flexible in order to make some backlog childs.

     features of this software is quite extensive
    - you got kanban board trello-like
    - you got to have todo list
    - you got timeline
    - you got sprint
    all of this integrated!

    Cons

    depends on what you need.
    for personal use, i'd prefer trello because it's much simpler & straight forward.
    for super geek user, i'd prefer JIRA
    i guess this fit for those who want to collaborate >5 people, but don't want that much complexity

    Pros

    Favro allows customized and organized boards, with the ability to visually organize them vertically or horizontally, and Favro can eliminate columns that would otherwise make the board look too busy. So many options and features!

    Cons

    I would like for Favro to sync better with JIRA, and also for Favro to have a better way of updating and managing bugs.

    allows me to do virtual projects with my co-workers, see their progress and that they see mine, really a super useful tool for teamwork.

    Pros

    At first I hesitated to use it but after seeing that it is very simple to use the truth I stayed with it, it is one of the app for teams that I love the most, it is not complex and its interface is beautiful.

    Cons

    I like everything about this application, maybe one of the things that I would personally change are the colors, but it is something that does not affect the functionality

    Easy to split tasks

    Pros

    1. In-built Kanban and SCRUM support
    2. Simplifies robust projects - simple yet powerful
    3. Most prominent feature: Different cards can be stored in different locations thus allowing different departments/teams to work on different phases

    Cons

    Repetitive when merging cards - has to be done every time. This manual process is annoying and I hope that Favro can create an automatic way to update these cards. Otherwise, great software!

    I've had a few crashes, which, while frustrating, is more of an annoyance than a major downside. Luckily, most stuff was saved.

    Organizational tools to keep your team on track as you break down large projects. This can be good for making trees for web development.

    Pros

    The best thing about this product is it's ability for you to create templates that can be duplicated and used in new processes as you go along. It's really helpful because the duplication process is so much faster.

    Cons

    I would say that it has a very clunky visual aspect. Everything is still not as organizationally readable because there is too much white space.

    Pros

    I love how you have connect specific tasks to other ones and also how you can give more importance to ones more than others. Also there is not only tasks itself but it is also possible to add subtasks inside each main tasks, which allows to keep a better control of the project.

    Cons

    As sometimes there could be tasks which are more important than others, at the beginning it is not very intuitive to understand how to better distribute the activities

    Its free version has an unlimited storage of projects, which makes it easy to review tasks at the same time and track different projects. Allowing to save time and meet work schedules.

    Cons

    The free trial is for a short time, which limits a long-term project. It does not allow to prioritize activities, nor does it allow a preview of the notes made.

    What I do not like very much is that it does not have a lot of documentation in Spanish for the Latin American community.

    Managing the progress of multiple teams working on the same project.

    Pros

    It gave a quick and easy way to create and mange the tasks of different teams, while at the same time being able to have teams collaborate and understand what all the other teams are working.

    The integration of the other software into Favro was also a benefit since we were already using some of them, and they seamlessly worked into the Favro backend.

    Cons

    In our line of work we share a lot of large files and it would have been nice if it had something that could have integrated into it that could have handled the large file sharing and also integrated into each individual task.

    Pros

    Creation of tasks and boards is pretty easy
    Integration with slack and GIT were awesome
    some one can create the story/task in Favro and that creation notification on slack is cool.
    ordering and maintaining is ease to do.
    UI is very great and very flexible , drag and dropping we are done with our work.
    report generation is also pretty cool.

    Cons

    Not many cons on Favro
    There are too many features which are available not known to me in the staring times.

    For first time users if you can display all the available features in simple slide form or video form it will be great.
