What do you like best?

It is a very user-friendly method of having website content edited instantly.

We have used other website CMS to edit content, all of which are not as intuitive as Contentful, so we were really glad our website developer provided us with this software for on-going changes. From updating photos to written content, Contently keeps track of everything - should you need to revert any changes, you can just pick and choose which version to return to and publish. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

One of the things I dislike is that it is very complicated to figure out how to add widgets and pop-ups from other services we utilize like Constant Contact and MailChimp. Also, when setting up Google Analytics, we continue receiving error messages, but so far Google Analytics has been able to deliver a report - now I am wondering of how accurate this report has been. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are having your website developed, it is always useful to know which CRM they use, Contentful and WordPress are the top two - if you are handed any other CRM option, make sure the person who will be making future changes to the site receives a comprehensive training. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The system is very easy to figure out in terms of creating content updates, so long as your website development has set it up following in a comprehensive order, like all tools, the person who initiates using the tool is also the person who sets the president of how this tool will be utilized by the rest of the team. I recommend it over other CRMs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Contentful has provided me with excellent customization features. This has helped me in cases where I have to forward a set template to my teaching assistants to work further onto it because I set the permission and they can only edit what I want them to. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It is not easy to upload images at all, especially when it comes to adding multiple images. It is also not easy to tell when the content will actually be published or how it will appear as it is altered at times. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Not sure if I would recommend this. The solution would be helpful for simpler cases but for complex design patterns, I do not find it the best. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have used it to manage projects for my students and TAs, and send out materials for them to further work on. This is a pretty straight forward software but also has a lot of glitches. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It loads pretty quickly and the API capabilities are also pretty good. I like that it is pretty straightforward and flexible. It is a good CMS system to use if you want to work on multiple platforms. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

No feature to see the overall page structure of the page elements, so there is no way to check the structure of the content inside each row.

It takes a long time to upload changes or even make copies of entire pages. Not a big fan of it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's definitely not the best solution out there so make sure to give it a go during the trial period Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have used it to manage our projects and compare different work solutions. It is straightforward to use and easy to set up, through just your github or gmail account. It has also made syncing out to clients pretty easy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It is very easy to customize and collaborate on this platform to generate creative content. Good WYSIWYG interface. I love the JSON support to back the data as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Very bad functionality to be able to edit and re-upload the pre-existing content. The templates are limited and it has a very basic editor.

For the features provides, it's extremely expensive and buggy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Although they have a good ideology and layout, I feel that the whole software just needs a bit of overall help. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have used to to generate training modules for new employees. It has helped us in reaching out to them by making the process easier and has made the content more interesting. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Definitely seems like a more developer-friendly tool, and integrates well into our deployment workflow. The modular approach to content is an interesting one, and for certain types of websites it would be a killer feature. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

From the editor's perspective, Contentful is maybe a bit TOO developer-friendly, as it lacks a lot of the basic features that I look for in a CMS.

While it may be highly configurable, it puts the onus on me to repeatedly ask our development team to add or change things at a platform level, rather than giving me the ability to do so myself. Instead of empowering my team to do more without the intervention of the dev team, it's simply changed the nature of our requests to them. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Do your research before you invest time in set up. For a mostly technical user base that can tweak and refine on an ongoing basis, Contentful might be a great option. For an organization with more robust editing needs, it may fall a little short. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We didn't have any CMS in place before, so having one now has made posting and editing content easier for us. The biggest benefit is that the learning curve for Contentful is pretty low, so it's pretty easy for us to onboard new members of the team. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
