"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.

The ability to utilize the "guru views" these are a couple of pre-made templates from existing frameworks you can easily apply or even experiment with without too much effort. this allows me to apply so many different mindsets,frameworks,presentation styles to frame our process of delivering on the product strategy. further the platform has a lot of functionalities, it really feels like Craft.io has been around for some time and has delivered a full package.

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.

Craft.io reviews

I need a tool to track documents and workflow associated with product management. This tool does that very well.

- Paul D. Product Manager

I think craft is a wonderful, all in one solution for product teams. I love it and wouldn't go back to any other software for this purpose.

- Adnan K. Product Manager Tax Free Shopping

I've been able to mostly live inside of one tool when working with my team. That pays for itself.

- Alexander H. Product Owner

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."

Craft.io

Pros
It's easy and beautiful, plainly a joy to use it compared to Jira
I would recommend to small remote teams in their early stages of development
The benefit is to keep everybody on the same page with a clear sprint backlog and clear milestone
Overall it has been great, wonderful find to have up to date information."
Cons
Sometimes it's not accurate when it comes to who edited a story/item
This can cause quite the problem for paper trails
The unique terminology--it's hard to figure out what a simple project, milestone or task is when they call it epic, story, etc
Plenty of bugs and poor usability features
Assigning a story to somebody will move the current swimlane to the first swimlane
Unable to post links with ampersands in the URL in comments
Permalinks stop randomly working and bring to a different view."
