Platinum vs Original

-I was trained on Workamajig Platinum and original at the same time as the office was transitioning from the old version when I was onboarding. In the end, the functionality of the original version made it necessary to stick to the old one to get work done though I prefer the look and feel of Platinum. - Please make Platinum able to print diaries without losing formatting -- our office needs hard copies - Also please add the missing "Track Budgets" selection on "Schedule" in Platinum which is needed to do timesheets and estimates. Previous version had to customize to add the column of check boxes, but not sure where this is in Platinum. - One more request for copying templates from another project --- would be great to have the ability to copy over without copying the people who were previously assigned to that project.

Pros

- Interface looks great
- Lots of fantastic features from project management to timesheets to tracking budgets

Cons

- Diary posts don't print consistent formatting
- Some features lost from the previous version
- Timesheets can get glitchy when adjusting and deleting hours as you go throughout the day

Great for timesheets, but steep learning curve

Pros

Easy to track and change time for projects.

Cons

Not very user-friendly. There is a somewhat steep learning curve just to figure out how to locate projects and track time. Icons are small, unclear, and don't relate at all to the actions they represent.

I also have problems attaching documents to diary notes at times. It seems like special characters (even dashes) set these problems off, but I'm not entirely sure because Workamajig doesn't always give me a clear diagnosis.

Workamajigs for me

Overall, it's been great. It's proven to be an indispensable part of our biusiness.

Pros

I like that it's built by my industry for my industry. I love having estimating, time tracking and billing all in one system.

Cons

When my co-workers complain about WMJ not being intiutive, and the long slow gring from classic to platinum.

What I have experienced.

Its ok.

Pros

It does timing well. and now I can not get off this screen. HOw irritating a form.

Cons

I use it as a timer and for scheduling. The new format does not seem to be as easy to use, it hides the functions too much and you have to go searching. I find my workmates do not know how to use it properly and there needs to be too much training which the owner of the company does not even want to do or have time, or make time.

Copy and Paste limitations, Lack of labeled icons

Its a useful tool for recordkeeping.

Pros

The ability to database information on projects, while documenting time and costs, is relatively simple.

Cons

The inability to replicate a whole line, copy, paste and save information, for example repeating a repetitive activity in a single step would enhance the tool. Often now the javascripted version, that I prefer, crashes. The Platinum version with just browser operations is not well laid out, and the icons are confusing, if there were more complete dropdown or pop-up descriptors when mousing over operational elements, that'd be an improvement. The help function provides a long list of all possible responses upon inputting a search query. Suggest a limit to the top 10 matches with the potential to get all responses with another click.

Not ideal, but the best option we've found so far

Workamajig is an integrated tool that's useful for agency management. It's helped consolidate the programs and software needed to run the business.

Pros

How integrated it is for timekeeping, accounting and media.

Cons

Because it's so customizable, it can be very overwhelming and confusing to know how best to set it up to utilize features for your business. I would recommend utilizing a Workamajig consultant to get everything set up for best practices.

Project scheduling and management features are clunky to use, and require ongoing attention and updates to keep things current.

Easy To Stay On Top of Time

Pros

The features make it easy to stay on top of your time. The timer allows you to keep a small ticker open instead of a browser window - and it will track that time automatically. There's also an app that allows you to be on-the-go while tracking time.

Cons

If there was something I had to change, I'd move the question boxes from the top of the browser to more of a pop-up box. Sometimes I miss them and it trips me up a bit.

More engineer-y than user friendly.

Decent, but with a steep and somewhat arbitrary learning curve. WJ seems to be powerful tool that does so many of the things our office requires, but I often feel like I am reacting to the software rather than the software responding to my needs.

Pros

Email integration
Malleability of "conversations"
Custom spec sheets
Relatively easy time sheets for budget purposes

Cons

The presentation of the software continues to be very text-based. As a secondary user (I don't design or run the workamajig workflow, I use the one we have in place), I often find my screen to be a wall of words, with information scattered among various boxes. A more intuitive GUI would be great for new or light users.

Make it more intuitive

Pros

It helps us keep track of our jobs and new business prospects.

Cons

Platinum made too many changes from the flash version. Why did you have to do away with the tabs in the menu bar? And shortcuts are missing.

Good product

It's good for what I use it for.

Pros

It helps keep track of my time and POs are really easy to do once you know how to do them.

Cons

Some terminology is difficult to determine what it means - like "Screen" when going through timesheets.

WMJ Is The Best!

We have WMJ and our WMJ team to thank for our organization at our company. It's a great way to track time for our clients and our bosses as well as easy to use.

Pros

The ease of using it. It's simple to learn and makes what would be a very hectic workplace , work smoothly.

Cons

The amount of steps when assigning a task was greatly improved when WMJ platinum came out. I think uploading files and where the files are stored could be improved. At an advertising agency there are 100's of files uploaded a day and they can be difficult to find and keep track of.

Great Agency Cloudbased Platform

Pros

We chose Workamajig because it was an all in one platform option on the cloud from project management to billing on all of our projects (other software would have required that we add separate "plug ins" for Calendars, Accounting, etc.

Cons

Unless you use it regularly, there are some clunky steps in getting tasks completed. It's not the most intuitive platform.
