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.

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.

excellent application I recommend them to everyone!

Pros

What I love the most about favro is that it not only measures times like other platforms but also provides measurement tools such as diagrams and emails to keep tasks up to date.

Cons

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.

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.

This helps us monitor team member activity and project task completions.

Pros

I like the various ways to link and view information. I like that we can assign cards to team members and monitor their progress.

Cons

I wish there were more options for categorization and organization. We had to create a special category for "Client Name" on each of our cards. Then, we have to manually change that category for every card when we add a new client. We would like to be able to select a group of cards and change custom names and categories to all selected. Also, we would like to be able to just click a button inside a column (not a board) to order all cards in a column by due date (similar to the options in and excel spreadsheet).

Organization of project status and key information. Continuity as a result.

Pros

Ease of implementation and use, very little training required. Achieved our goal of keeping teams up to date and on track.

Cons

We haven't been able to launch some integrations (i.e. calendar) and the format is a bit more rigid than we would like.

Project management is challenging in startups. Things are moving fast and devoting the resources to tracking progress on reaching goals and organizing your team isn't easy. Favro helps us communicate as a team and track progress on our big goals. The customized collections and views enable our strategic team to look at the "big picture" while our developers can look at the day to day task list, but all our information is synced up.

Pros

The primary reason we went with Favro was the ability to hierarchically organize cards (like Asana) but also organize workflows like a Kanban tool. This fits our team approach the best. I also like that cards are the atomic unit of organization and that individual cards can show up in multiple boards, backlogs, and collections. In addition, the multiple and cutomizable collections is also helpful.

But one of the best parts of Favro is their responsive and intelligent customer service reps who are able to answer questions quickly and effectively.

Cons

The UI is very text heavy and doesn't allow for incorporating custom iconography. Icons improve efficiency in working with SaaS tools and I see places that would help in Favro. The pricing tiers seem steep. Doubling the monthly rate for an increase from 5 to 10 users feels inappropriate.

Keeping track of our companies projects!

Pros

Our company was in need of a project management software because several employees would have to ask the same question or reiterate things or even lose track of projects and Favro keeps it all in one convenient spot.

Cons

When you have a large number of employees the software can get expensive because it is a per-user fee

Gave me the ability to organize my project and school tasks in the way I use to on paper but now online and accessed anywhere.

Pros

The ability to have cards show up in more than one place. I like that I can have them stored in a backlog and have them under different columns in a board. This app has drastically improved how I organize my projects and school work at university.
It also has a clean and user friendly interface.

Cons

I wish there was a feature to sort cards by the column titles in a backlog project tree view. No other complaints.

We organized our projects better.

Pros

Easy to use.. the card (trello style) are very convenient. Good for an agency like us who work on multiple clients and projects. It's easy to clearly navigate in between projects and clients

Cons

For simple projects only in my opinion. When it comes to bigger projects.. theres some stuff missing. Ex : Sub tasks, long conversation in task gets messy, timeline is not easy to use

I get a good overview of my workweek

Pros

It's very user friendly and requires very little time to understand and setup. That's how project management software should be, so you can spend all your time actually working.

Cons

I think the UI could be prettier. Also at first it's pretty hard to find out how to set up new boards for individual team members.

an alternative to manage backlog beside JIRA / sheet

Pros

I found the table form of backlog is quite useful since you can also customise necessary column for each task. And the swimlanes. It's like moving my backlog from sheet into a platform where I can just drag & drop each task to a board. The overall card & board UI are also nice, but it would be nice if we can also configure information shown on the card, so we can instantly know what's the card about without having to open it first.

Cons

I need a kind of gantt chart tools to support my work. Favro has timeline that is used only to see members workload overtime. I wish in the future there will be more of a gantt chart tools so I can have a more detailed timeline of each task.

Pros

I like that you can pull reports from the data collected on the boards. Being able to tag each card with different steps of the process is also one of my favorite features of the software. I also like the fact that you can make templates for repeat projects.

Cons

I wish the boards were easier to set up - perhaps an option to alphabetize cards. Also, I wish you could customize the view. Sometimes, when a lot of cards are present in one column, it makes it difficult to view the board in a "snapshot" view without having to scroll.
