I’ve been testing Monday.com for several business I’m starting up. I’m a developer and a marketer launching some serious brands. I’ve A/B 'ed Monday.com against a lot of competitors and really love the flexible set up it offers me. However, the serious weakness I run into is the kanban boards. I could list a number of specific feature requests, but I think anyone who looks at the competition (Jira, Asana, Trello, etc) can see a number of basic things missing. I think it just needs some general love - Monday.com dev style. Any chance the Monday.com team could give it a pass over on the roadmap?
Tell us your use case. How do you and your team already use monday.com ? Be specific if possible to give us the complete picture.
I use Monday.com to organize operations across complex media ventures (finance, production, marketing etc.) I love the ability to group things, use tags, and how questions, updates, and files can be accessed with the right hand menu. Very flexible tools for organization. I track progress and prioritize tasks with the Kanban view.
Frame the feature request/feedback in context with your pain point and what you want to achieve. The better we can understand how it fits into your workflow, the easier it is for us to prioritize in our Voice of Customer process.
- Make more info appear on cards
- Make it more obvious as to what group the card belongs (Unlike list view there is currently no color difference coloration to the cards).
- Cards are huge and generally blank. This makes it so hard to navigate through them with your team on a big screen. Can there be a zoom feature or something?
- Sub-items don’t appear to do anything on Kanban cards, though there is a place to click expand once you open the card.
- I have to open the card, and click comments to get the comments to appear on the left hand side. This is sort of annoying.
Help us understand the impact this is having on your team; is this having a critical impact that’s affecting your team’s productivity? Is this causing roadblocks in adopting monday.com as your main work tool?
This is more of a “for love the game” type scenario. Whatever management tool we choose to use isn’t going to stand in the way of our critical path. The Kanban being so basic, is just sort of an annoying drag given Monday.com is otherwise such an exciting, hip, well-thought out tool. I want my teams to feel like they get the best most competent products on the market, so they can be excited about what we’re doing. Monday.com feels like its done by passionate pros, but that they haven’t clicked on the Kanban section in a while.
List any workarounds you may have tried and to what degree this is solving the issue for you.
I don’t think there’s a potentially suitable work around other than dealing with the clunky Kanban interface sadly. We just have to click on each card to see basic info and constantly scroll around the board.
I believe in you Monday.com. Please show me some Kanban Love.
