"Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today."

Most popular feedback for Localist

Our previous website calendar system consisted of our staff manually entering events when the public would email them to us. Even with copy/pasting each field, it would take up some time to process a lot of requests. Now, we can approve or deny events with the click of a button and the public takes the time to format the events themselves. This also allows for required fields so we don't receive events with missing information.

Most popular feedback for Backlog

We use backlog.com as overall tracking and project management tool for our projects, support tasks and maintenance activities that we provide to our customer. We selected backlog.com after evaluating many other tools (like Jira, Pivotal tracker etc.) and backlog.com became the clear winner. Why ? Because this tool combine together the best features of all other tool while still being neat and straightforward. Backlog.com has been proving it at our daily use for 1 year approximately.

About Backlog

Backlog is the all-in-one online bug tracking tool for task management, version control, and bug tracking. Along with a suite of task management features, such as subtasks, custom statuses and Kanban boards, the platform provides a consistent way for teams to report bugs and manage code repositories. Backlog enables pull requests, merge requests, and branches, and you have the option to use Git or SVN to manage code alongside bug tasks.

Localist reviews

We looked at many different event software solutions before deciding on Localist. It's a great product, and the customer service is unparalleled.

- Nicky E. Associate Director of Digital Media

I'm very familiar with Localist after having used it for a few years so I'm reluctant to change to a different email merge system but I do find it to be user-friendly and easy to introduce people to.

- Raymond R. Web Designer

In our particular application, there just isn't very much traffic. The idea of a dedicated event calendar can feel like too much when everyone already uses their own CRM or email lists to communicate about events. More flexible integrations would be a nice feature, like if Localist could pull in events automatically from third-party CRMs. Customizeable reminder messages and follow-up messaging would also add value.

Backlog reviews

The product is clutter-free and any features that are added have simple use cases and helps in easier implementation. A good user interface to avoid daily hassles involved in bug/defect reporting daily as a tester.

Pros & cons

Localist

Pros
The solution is very flexible to our needs and the branding capabilities are impressive
The ease of use and empowerment of users to submit events
Localist is very easy to setup and administer and is a very powerful calendar platform to help manage and promote our many events on campus
Administrators love the ease of setup, reporting and the configuration flexibility."
Cons
The webinar on Channels was so confusing that it took me months to figure out what they were talking about
Again, lots of learn-by-doing
We also found an issue with users being able to create their own avatar, in some cases the avatar could be offensive and there is no way to easily "report" that to the calendar admins
Support has been generally terrible
Anything outside of the basic functionality is simply not supported and they have been unwilling to implement ANY requests that we've made
On several occasions the answers provided by support have been blatantly wrong and only through our own channels have we been able to fix problems that the vendor created."

Backlog

Pros
We appreciate Nulabs for providing us their platform for supporting our team in our product development, And would definitely would be recommend Backlog
This is a great tool to organize dev, see how it goes, what needs to be done, who's in charge of what
It really helped me to make my projects live and faster than before using this great tool
It's definitely made our clients more satisfied with our service that we're now able to better keep track of, and respond to, the bugs and issues they raise
It has good functionality for setting deadlines, tagging people, and notifications."
Cons
When i review pull request on Backlog, i can't see the number of deleted line, added line and total changed line
Github has this feature
I have trouble verifying who committed the code when viewed on the git tool of the Backlog
I miss adding more pictures to describe a bug, and possibly tagging and editing the placed images
I find it frustrating to changing Status only after creating the task."
