"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 Canny

I’m just so impressed with my experience using Canny, from the user interface to the API. It was just truly a delight. Every step of the way, it’s clear how much intentional refinement and care has gone into making things as simple as possible yet powerful enough to get the job done. It is certainly inspiring to see somebody able to do it right, and as we’re working on improving our product, I just hope to be able to give our users the same delight as I get using Canny.

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.

Canny reviews

It counts the vote and keeps track of the progress

- Anamaria R. Customer Support

am a PM and I like that Canny allows my team and I to collect user feedbacks that are visible across stakeholders including users. Users can upvote certain feedbacks so that my team can prioritize some of the important user stories for product development purposes.

- Jack L. Product Manager

It gives us a direct line to what our customers want, so we can make regular course corrections to our strategy. And the Canny support team are awesome!

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."

Canny

Pros
It's a super easy tool for all of us to collect feedback in a unified spot
Different departments have conversations with the same customers, and we all hear different sentiment
Now the user and others can see their suggestion and engage others interested in the same feature
Great support as well although it's so easy you'll hardly ever need it
Canny is really great for capturing user feedback
The constant updates and improvements are nice."
Cons
In our comms with their people - they flat out refused to remove their branding - despite the number of votes for people wanting that, and despite the fact that we said we would pay much more
This can make it clash a bit with the rest of the user interface of your app if your app offers a dark mode
Minor inconvenience, but I thought I would mention it anyway
That is the biggest reason for any negative sentiment in my review
You need to specify a feature request category first, which makes it difficult to find issues quickly
You end up wasting a lot of time going through categories to find an issue category."
