Mavenlink lacks the capability to include multiple distinct project-related discussions, which are crucial in managing large and diverse projects. Lack of an in-app notification center makes it difficult to stay on top of your priorities without checking your email or a 3rd-party app like Slack.
|Comment on tasks, issues and other work items
|Participate via email
Mavenlink’s time tracking lacks the much needed flexibility and tools for dynamic teams.
|Log time via email
|Log time for another user
|Incomplete timesheets automation
|Multi-level approval workflow
|Organization & project risk registers
|Custom risk parameters
Issue & Bug Tracking
Mavenlink’s bug and issue tracking solution is a fairly basic offering and does not offer customization and comprehensive reporting.
Mavenlink does not offer integrated expense management for accurately recording and tracking project costs related to equipments, people, legal, travel, etc. Managing expenses and receipts is a nightmare without integrating (and paying for) a 3rd party software.
|Billable and non-billable expenses
|Custom expense codes
|File attachments to expenses (e.g. Receipts)
Analytics & Reporting
|Reporting on custom fields including formula fields.
|Automatically email reports
Mavenlink only offers export/import and file storage integrations with their plans. Any additional integration is considered as a custom integration and is provided for a fee.
