I was excited when these apps first came out but I’ve noticed that after testing them when they were first released, we haven’t used them since. Are others the same?
I also remember when the whole Work OS thing was announced that the Monday.com team showed this data that said most users were only using a small amount of the app’s features.
Where am I going with this?
Well, I reckon these new apps are far less important than some of the core feature improvements that I belive are needed.
Things like improved and streamlined communication. (Messages are getting lost between notifications, inbox and updates, and we’re only a small team).
Or the ability to properly mirror data from one board to another. The current mirror colum doesn’t actually mirror, it’s only one way. Which means you can’t create proper databases in Monday.com.
Those pain points have been around for a while now,and they keep coming up in the forums. (There are others, but those two are the ones that spring to mind right now.)
On the other hand, I’ve never seen anybody request a whiteboard app or a word cloud app…
I’m frustrated that Monday.com is throwing more flashy features into the mix without taking the existing features to completion. I would like to see you apply the 80/20 principle. Focus 80% of your time on the 20% of features that people use the most.
Maybe I’m being a bit overdramatic? And I’m not a software guy or a big business guy or anything like that.
It’s just hard to know where Monday.com is heading, given the recent decisions to remove the roadmap from your website and to announce new features in so many diffferent places.
We initially chose Monday.com because of its powerful simplicity. I hope that doesn’t get lost in the flurry of flashy new features.
Sent with good intentions to the awesome Monday.com team and community.
