Monday.com presents top-level information in a colorful way — but when you need to dig deeper for functionality, it’s not as robust or as feature-rich as Teamwork Projects. Monday.com is missing key features that allow your team to achieve their goals efficiently.

However, features such as subtasks, task dependencies, centralized files, and privacy options can all be found in Teamwork Projects. When comparing the two, Teamwork Projects offers more options, more freedom, and more opportunities to empower your team

I like the fact we can all access it everywhere – not only to keep on top of my own workload but to see what the rest of the team is doing. The integration with other apps and files is fantastic and it makes billing (and client reporting) really easy.

My go to project management tool!

Ratko Ivanovic, CEO & Founder, Zeal Agency

First, it’s more feature heavy than you can imagine. What I like most is the way to setup, document, organise and manage projects. You can add milestones, notebooks, files, links, etc. Collaboration is amazing, it’s easy to add more people, discuss the tasks through comments, track time (included in their features), and talk through messages and chat. Integrates with a number of 3rd party tools, integrates with Zapier and Integromat. Has webhooks for everything possible (I use this part so much…).

Comments (Benefits)

I’ve been using it with my team for more than 3 years now and truly can’t imagine my life without it. Highly highly recommended for both small and big projects.
