How to get my manager to look at monday.com

So you've found the monday.com platform, loved it during the 2 week trial but the decision to adopt sits with someone else. It won't be hard to show them the value it can bring so let's move on to the main attractions:

Collaboration

We've developed the platform as a collaboration tool for teams, clients and freelancers. The scope of this goes way beyond just project management so forget about being drowned in emails as you can now use monday.com for all internal discussions. Tagging your teammates through the @mention feature plays a big part in this (explore more through our communication guide).

 

There's also the option of bringing in clients & frequent collaborators as guests within the Shareable boards of your account.

Flexibility

The platform is modular and very customizable. Originally, it had 7 columns to choose from but we're constantly taking feedback from our users and looking to improve it. As as result, our product team & developers have worked very hard on rolling out new features + enhancing existing ones and we've put together a new column center with more than a dozen new ones!

You can review the column types HERE.

Transparency & accountability

There are 3 board types: Main, Shareable & Private. All the users on the account will have visibility over the Main boards and this is where we recommend most of the work take place. Of course, if you need to keep sensitive information separate, the Shareable & Private boards can be used in this sense as only their subscribers will have access to them.

The Person column (and more recently, the Team one) is used to assign users & guests to tasks/pulses, so you're always aware of who's doing what.

In case you're working on a board with a lot of pulses and you need an overview of how everything is going, you can add a Progress Tracking column to do just that:

Use the Search Everything & Filter / Search Board features to pin-point the exact tasks, teammates, statuses, deadlines etc. that you're interesting in:

 

Another thing you can do is get a fresh perspective on your boards by adding different board views:

And when it comes to the pulse updates, the eye icon will show you who's viewed it:
