ClickUp is a project management software tool used by organizations across the globe. Whilst it claims to be a single solution for all of your work needs, for some project teams it isn’t the right fit.

Why Look for a ClickUp alternative?

It’s fair to say that those who love ClickUp deliver some great results using their tools. But, when you take a look at some real reviews, not everyone believes that ClickUp fits into their team as seamlessly as they’d like.

Clickup has become a little bloated, with one user in particular noting that “there are too many ways to use the software (which is actually a drawback)”.

Users may also see challenges when navigating the interface with some reviews expressing frustration at the number of clicks it takes to view and act on information contained in the dashboard and tasks.

Despite its feature-rich portfolio, some users find the array of functionality hard to use in practice. If you need to do a number of things well, ClickUp may be for you. But for those that need to do specific things perfectly, ClickUp didn’t offer the depth of functionality that some teams need.

Design / UI
One of the key areas ClickUp customers get stuck is with the user interface. Similarly to functionality, lots of features lead to a lot of options. This inevitably causes confusion. If you prefer a cleaner and more intuitive design, an alternative may be what you need.

A number of reviews also mention a lack of onboarding support from ClickUp, leaving their teams feeling isolated. If you’ve got a large team with limited technical capability, a provider which offers better support packages may be a better fit for you.

The above are three broad reasons you may be considering a ClickUp alternative. There of course may be many other reasons that are specific to your team too.

Cons Of using ClickUp

Some of the things we didn’t enjoy about Clickup:

1. Can be overwhelming to get started due to the number of features.
2. Lacks a dedicated scrum board.
3. Does not have functional reports like sprint burndown chart or cumulative flow diagram.
4. Missing developer-friendly capabilities like markdown to write descriptions and share code snippets.
5. Users have complained their mobile app isn’t great.
6. Is considered to be expensive when you want to upgrade to higher plans.
