It's been a great tool to keep client communication organized
1. The ease of adding columns to customize to different project's needs.
2. Very easy for clients to learn and use
1. lack of outside integrations
2. Task assignments: teaching clients to properly tag/notify people can be a challenge since it's not clear who or when people will get notified without knowing the software
Mario S. Branche: Computer-Software
Incredibly versatile, one-man-band type of collaboration software.
It ties communication tools (HD videoconference and chat) with task management (recurring tasks, subtasks, ...), project management (lightweight Gantt chart, workload view and time tracking), all native, in one package. It also features native Android and iOS native apps.
These work well for keeping in touch with the team and create/update tasks.
This is specially important for teams who are dispersed (different cities, different timezones, ...).
While you can easily spend hundreds of dollars on different softwares for different purposes, Redbooth ties it all together in one.
They've been through a lot of changes over these 3-4 years and they don't seem to have found their core yet.
The UI still looks something out of the first drafts and doesn't look polished or slick like other players in the collaboration space like Asana or Slack.
The Dashboard is somewhat useless and just mimics a prettier email inbox while having the same behavior. Their premise of replacing email is a bit doubtful.
Lots of potential, but doesn't seem to go anywhere.
Redbooth can be complex at times with the amount of features it boasts. It is both a good and bad thing.
Spend time in their Help Center, watch some videos and don't be shy of asking for guidance. It will be worth it.
Force your team to use it every day and you won't want to work any other way.

My experience overall has been great as I have used the product since back when it was Teambox 4
Redbooth has a great UI and continues to make updates that makes the product super easy to use.
Missing status update option as native versus a tag. Also would love to be able to assign sub task to a person and set due dates for them similar to the main task.

Redbooth is as strong as the amount of users who commit to it. We struggle to get everyone on board, and therefore a lot of task management still has to happen over email and text. However, on teams who have really bought into the software, Redbooth offers everything we need.
The layout of Redbooth, with horizontal columns that are flexible and moveable, has given us a really great way to organize our tasks, and schedule out a variety of time-based tasks and travel appointments.
We also make use of the robust tagging and notification options within the software to manage our tasks appropriately across a 20+ member team.
A weak point of Redbooth is definitely the calendar view options. We really need the ability to view tasks on a calendar that are only under a specific tag, or viewing tasks for a single person across all workspaces.
We also run into some issues with Word documents not displaying properly in the web interface, which just adds another step to download and look at a document when all you need is just to see it at a glance.
-Clear accountability for users who are assigned tasks
-Clear paper trail of conversation/feedback given
-Easy to scale up/down for different projects + teams
-Many ways to structure a team and project
-Straightforward UI - easy to onboard new team members
-Easy to divide projects within the platform and create different user experiences for people touching different elements of a project
-Easy timeline setup based on task input
-Glitchy at times (for example, upon upgrade, the customer support chat window covered up a critical button; difficult to format notes because once you've added bullets, it's hard to go back to normal formatting; difficult to drag elements to reorder)
-File storage is extremely unheplful. When you upload attachments to tasks, they are just stored as files within a master file, and it takes significant time to organize them separately. We wound up ignoring this feature altogether
-Additional notification setting options for tasks would be helpful - we wound up blasting people's emails, so they started ignoring Redbooth emails altogether
