What do you like best?
This platform is a powerhouse, but so easy to use. Because chat, online meetings, screen sharing, and conversation within tasks are all included, it's rare that we need to rely on collaboration tools (other than Google Drive). That alone saves so much time and confusion.
But, with all of the features and flexibility (this really is an all-in-one project management solution), it's incredibly easy to use and the interface is simple and beautiful. Visual clutter is so distracting, even disorienting, but you don't get any of that with this tool.
What do you dislike?
I would really love to be able to assign multiple task owners to the same task. There are simple workarounds, but none as simple as multiple task owners which we're anxiously anticipating.
Recommendations to others considering the product
Spend an hour learning how to use it and getting set up. If you don't fully commit (stop using email or other project management software and put as much of your tasks and projects as possible into Redbooth, then your workflow will double in complexity. If you fully commit you'll see results immediately.
Make sure your team is on the same page and you try completing a small project start - finish all from within Redbooth.
And, take advantage of the online meetings as soon as possible!

Problems that have been solved with Redbooth
- Easy-to-track project management
- Working with clients and remote teams and staying on track
- Creating repeatable processes. We no longer reinvent the wheel every time there is a new project — it's all in Redbooth.
- Screensharing - Skype isn't the simplest tool for collaboration. Redbooth integrates with Zoom, so scheduling meetings remotely is easy with the Google Cal and Outlook integrations. It's also easy to do a screenshare (life saving feature!) and get as many people as we need in the same meeting at once
