About Favro

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.

Abstract Approach to Cards; Few Limitations

For business partners & employees there was a steep learning curve; BUT Favro’s blog and resources do an amazing job at showing a lot of different management styles & project management approaches being used on the platform. This really helped people with different business and personal backgrounds start with a strong footing. The biggest part of the adoption wasn’t the platform, but how individual actors in the organization wanted to manage projects and action items when there was no platform limitations...

Which for a startup, is definitely required as the business solidified it’s processes over time.

Basically, there were no bottlenecks presenter while doing a myriad of different project types on Favro... that’s a big statement for a platform.

Pros

The platform approaches cards agnostically, but ensures re-use of customizations through templates. Lanes, groups, automation, and tagging make almost anything manageable in Favro... more than almost all others that I’ve worked on for production level projects.

Agnostic to project management styles is a huge benefit when running things in the platform.

Also important, the platform is amazing for how old it is. It’s “young” but I’m sure it will surpass others in terms of features.

Cons

Lanes displayed as standard cards in “My cards” is a bit overwhelming. I’m sure in the future they will keep upgrading to pay a bit more attention to “admin” views and have more “authority” driven dashboard views that summate statistics that currently are only viewable directly to the boards themselves.

Alternatives Considered

Trello, monday.com, Wrike and Asana

Reasons for Choosing Favro

Their interface is a new approach, but for really complicated projects that are defined based on a Risk Management approach... Monday.com became very restrictive and a lot of time spent customizing it repeatedly.

Reasons for Switching to Favro

The trajectory of the platform is very clear to me; it will become more abstract yet they will keep up with helpful resources and continue showing their approach is based on real world, practical business standards... not just startups. Their examples and curated walk through a of how businesses use the platform will help keep support for it low in my department. Their approach to agnostic cards also makes it so changing a project’s board or ensuring a department can pivot how it needs without affecting others means a stable use throughout the organization(s).

The Best Tool I've Found for Project Management

Pros

My company uses Favro like it's our Bible! We organize everything on here, from invoices to product roadmaps to assigning tasks to our team members to scheduling our blog posts and editorial calendar. It's extremely intuitive with new features coming out constantly.

Favro has done so much to aid us in organizing our projects, setting deadlines, and figuring out our priorities when it comes to managing our business.

Cons

Favro is very intuitive, however, there is a slight learning curve. You definitely have to spend some time playing around with the platform to see how you want to use it.

The templates are helpful, but I feel that there could be more options available.

Alternatives Considered

Basecamp and monday.com

Reasons for Switching to Favro

It has the same features, but it is a fraction of the price

Response from Favro

Brittany, great to hear that you enjoy Favro. We will soon update all our templates, and we hope that it will fasten your work.

Overthink your decision, Favro holding back a credit of 400 USD

dear community

We have many years of experience with Favro and unfortunately have to come to the conclusion that working with the software is not worthwhile. It is a start-up company and unfortunately does not understand how to deal with customers.
Due to UX design errors, the solution cost us 400 USD. We added a member and without notification it upgraded us on the subscription and automatically deducted $400 from the credit card.

Adding the member was a mistake on our part and was reversed within a very short time.

Favro thinks it's normal to deduct $400 without notification. Despite repeated explanations, the money was not given back to us.

We therefore advise you against using this software, as it can cost you a lot of money because you will ultimately have to iron out the programming and startup errors yourself.

We will look into legal avenues to get our money back.

Pros

Overall good function but we run into very bad customer support which cost us 400 USD

Cons

Everybody needs support at some moment and if you see yourself in this situation too, avoid...

The trial experience is not good when we were implementing and onboarding the team we need more days to have everybody working in the same page, but Favro don't have this option and lock down all my account data. We came from Asana to work in favro but when we had many projects running at the same time we lost the full picture and after 3 months we came back to Asana. I asked the support how to downgrade my plan and they told me the wrong instruction and my data was locked again. This is the worst feeling that you can offer to someone: lock someones data and answer the day after, well, I'm still waiting it.

Pros

Intuitive views my team enjoyed to work with favro

Cons

We can have a macro view of the projects and we had to work with other platforms together

Alternatives Considered

Jira and Asana

Reasons for Choosing Favro

The Scrum and Kanban view from favro. But after 3 months we returned to Asana
