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 into 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.

A very easy to use and reliable software

Pros

Favro is relatively clean and easy to figure out for the basics. It's very easy to add, remove, and sort cards.

Cons

I wish the card templates were dynamic. In other words, I create a template, and after updating the card template it updates all the other templates moving forward.

Cross-team organization

Pros

I really like Favro's simple and intuitive layout. It makes it easy to stay organized and keep track of projects across teams.

Cons

I don't have many complaints about Favro. The only thing is that I would like to better understand the 'backlog' feature.

Ease of use, speed and flexibility are key to any good project management tool and Favro achieves all three consistently.

Cons

The Timeline feature isn't working as intended and so isn't yet able to be used, but conceptually it's a good idea.

Very easy to use across multiple companies / teams across multiple sites.

Pros

Favro is relatively clean and easy to figure out for the basics. It's very easy to add, remove, and sort cards.

Cons

Lots of hidden features that make it hard to learn what to do. For example, if I move a card while holding down "shift" vs without holding down shift different things end up happening. And if I do this incorrectly, it is hard to know how to fix it.

Also, if you archive a card by mistake, it is very hard to find that card ever again. It would be great to have a list of cards that I recently changed to address this.

Fast issue creation and a nice boards. Helps organize the workflow and have a quick overview of the state of development.

Pros

It's fast and easy to use. Since it seems to have been developed in Meteor, everything is synced up quickly. There haven't been any major bugs so it's a very stable product.

Cons

It's sorely lacking a mobile app that's compatible with most common android versions. It doesn't do anything super special, so a webview should do the trick.

At the moment, a JS-API would be really awesome, since it's bothersome to write hosted plugins. Trello has a functional JS-API.

Pros

Has a relatively easy to use API which I can use to get cards from and export into an external service

Cons

The API is decent but it could be better and documentation improved. eg. You get all cards in the board when pulling cards, it would be nice to be to request cards for a specific column. (Not sure if this changed yet)

Easier management of sprints and greater insight into time to complete tasks. ie If cards are spanning multiple boards.

The ability to have more granularity over the control of boards was a huge win over trello. That was the main reason for choosing this product over trello.

Pros

We switched from Trello to Favro because managing bugs/tasks across sprints became time consuming. Being able to easily see boards across multiple sprints was a huge win. Also, the fact that bugs are always visible is great as well.

Cons

My main wish is if there was a way to quickly identify clutter. For example, bugs that have not been touched for 6+ months are probably not bugs or have already been fixed. Maybe have a way to call attention to those cards for deletion.

It would also be awesome if there was some sort of "smart" check to let the user know that a card being added may have already been added. It can waste quite a bit of time when you start looking into a bug that someone else has already fixed because it was added twice.

I can asily filter out everyone else and focus on what I need to be doing.

Pros

Everyone's involved, and we are easily thrown into projects where we are needed. It is exact, to the point and a lot faster to set up tasks and projects than in Jira.

Cons

Recurring tasks is a big one for us. Currently we're just moving to the right in new Monthly columns. I like to actually have things checked off as done, but these cards just follow us month to month (which is what we need but doesn't give a sense of closure and also offsets a lot of features to measure our progress)

I was able to manage a project in a simple manner, and delegate tasks easily to the rest of my team members, ultimately moving projects forward and thinking more linearly with each outstanding task.

Pros

I like the swim lanes. While a lot of tools are great for kanban flow, the swim lanes really help with visualizing what I need from my client or when it's time for me to pick up the ball.

Cons

It took a while to learn the nuances--without much video support. I got the high level info from videos on YouTube, but there should really be some better resources that dive into the more complex uses for this software.

Drag and drop functionality is intuitive and easy to use. Ability to assign multiple people to a card, and have each user complete his or her status. Ability to add multiple task lists to a single card.

Cons

If you set an end date, the date stays red if you are past that date, even if all users are complete. If all users are complete, dates should not be red.

I like the simplicity of Favro. It feels more focused than other systems that try to do too much. Here the core features are what we actually need.

Cons

I don't think the shortcuts are as good as they should be. It makes not sense that you have to hover over the backlog for N to create a new card - pressing N anywhere should work (and add the card to the latest or only expanded backlog).

It is on Meteor platform, i`m too)
Really, great idea of flexibility of cards, boards and backlogs. And all work fast, fine and predictable. I showed it for my customers and all was clear for them. Good functionality to count my time for tasks. And enough integrations for services.

Cons

I like it all, instead of price, that jump higher and higher. And that there is no free tariff even for one person((

Pros

It's ease of use. It's a better version than a whiteboard and post its (and I don't say that lightly!). It gives our team the same flexibility to structure and re-structure how we organize our work for our current needs as a white board would, but with all the added benefits that delightful software brings. A+!

Cons

I don't have that many annoyances.

At the top of the list would proper two-way sync with JIRA, simply because of all the workflows associated with JIRA are awesome for so many things, except of doing actual work. I would absolutely love if I could get a synced backlog from JIRA, but keep the process of doing work and resolving tickets via Favro. That would honstely be my killer app because someone of the team has do to double work at the moment.

And please don't try to replicate JIRA:s features, embrace it instead.

Another, much smaller thing I would like is to automagically tag all cards in a backlog with a tag as soon as it's added to it. Would make it much easier to get a glance of what areas my team members are working on in the lanes themselves.

And better markdown support with syntax highlighting and such would be a welcome addition as well.

Favro is a very convenient way to organize our growing team. I can see at a glance what each person is working on and what I need to do next.

Cons

There is a bit of a steep learning curve to use every feature of Favro. I think it's possible to just learn a few things at a time but to use the entire program is a bit daunting.
