I love Zenkit. At first sight, it looks like an easy to use tool but if you have worked with it for a while it's getting better every minute. It got so many features and possibilities for your business.Pros:
Awesome Design and a powerfull tool for your business.Cons:
It needs a bit of time to get to know all possibilities and features in Zenkit.
The API gives me a lot of control over the issues and tasks I love being able to create items on a mindmap, and switch to Kanban, then action them with a Eisenhower matrix.Pros:
The new API The ability to switch between different visual representations The mindmap viewCons:
Out of the box conversational integration
I am the CEO of a startup and since I stared using Zenkit our structure really improved a lot. We started managing everything in a single place: Wiki, Contacts, Projects, Scrum – instead of using three different tools for that. The great thing with this approach is, that everything can be interconnected and depending on one another. I can link different tasks to certain projects, which are linked to the project manager. I can assign customer or investor contacts to cards and once they're done I can complete them with a single click on a checkbox. With custom filters I can always select, what I want to see. I can filter by project, team member or even contacts. Super convenient and a big simplification of our processes.Pros:
It enabled me to have everything in one place.Cons:
It took us a while and some talks to experienced Zenkit users to really be able to unlock the whole power of the tool.
I am scrum master in a small startup and started using Zenkit for organizing our sprints. It has really powerful features, that distinguishes it from other tools, like Asana or Trello, but it took a while for my scrum members to figure out the UX. Now, as everyone is used to it, it works perfectly for us! Highly recommended.Pros:
Amazing tool for scrumming!Cons:
Took some time for our team to figure out the UX.
Love the redesign! Makes the interface so much better. Before it was lacking some contrast - it’s been a gray/white soup with some desaturated colors.Pros:
Flexibility, having the right visualization for different contexts. This makes Zenkit the swiss army knife of productivity tools.Cons:
Takes a while to see the advantages, once you learned how to leverage the different modes, it’s super easy and effective to use though.
We are amazed that Zenkit isn't drawing more users from the businesses we interact with. On a regular basis we encounter companies with problems we solved with Zenkit.Pros:
Our teams to use it as our knowledge base, our CRM as well as our collective project / task management tool.Cons:
It's versatility and power make onboarding a bit slow. Seems daunting to some.
Have been using it for quite a while and me and my team love it. Love interconnections with other databases. Really helps with managing teachers and parents.Pros:
Mindblowing convenience working with databases, easy to use navigation and speed of light.Cons:
You gotta watch intro video. That is the only con). After that very smooth and intuitive interface and work.
I've tried a ton of project management solutions and I always found myself having to compromise my process at some point. However the custom fields in Zenkit provides the flexibility missing in many other solutions. The new "Publish Collection" pretty much completes my needs as it's now easy for clients to view the status of a project. This feature currently uses a public, unsecured URL, which is fine for me as the URL is impossibe to guess, but some will prefer this to be password protected. If you've used similar apps before, you'll be able to switch with little grief.Pros:
A familiar interface, but with greater flexibilityCons:
None that I've found
