I can control what each member can see

For about 3 years now we've been using Wrike for projects at GrowMap, our freelance collaboration does for agencies and other freelancers.

Pros, Cons and Overall Experience of Wrike enables the creation of complex custom workflows. That and the ability to quickly filter everything in the system to find just what you need at that moment are why I chose this version of Wrike.

Like other project management solutions, Wrike makes it easy to tag members and send them reminders to keep projects on schedule. Tasks can be assigned, sorted multiple ways, and due dates applied. Unlike less sophisticated solutions, Wrike has multiple layers of security. I control what each member can see. For example, each agency can only access their own folders and tasks. Only the writer(s) or other service provider assigned to implement a specific task can see that task. This makes it easy for the task manager and anyone they choose to discuss that project only with those who have a need to know those details. It is easy to create forms for your customers to request additional services. The forms can be internal and only visible within Wrike. Or they can be external so you can link to them from your service pages. The best feature for teams like mine is that we can add an unlimited number of new customers and freelancers as collaborators and external users at no cost. We only pay for 10 admins who can access everything. You can add to that number in increments of 5. (We could drop to only 5 and spend less, but we haven't so far.)We have over 100 other users who have access to everything they need inside of my Wrike account. They can't edit tasks; only admins and select agencies can do that. But they can message an admin or the person who requested that task and ask for changes to be made. For as complex and powerful as Wrike is, they were very helpful at assisting with the setup. Having the basic process already built-in Trello provided a visual guide to create even more complex workflows in Wrike. Using it is very similar to other software and new users are trained quickly and easily by any existing user. One of the greatest challenges of using any project management system is getting your team to use it. I've trained hundreds of people on Wrike and with some encouragement, all of them are able to consistently use the processes.

It's a wonderful tool for managing people and projects

Wrike is an excellent user-friendly tool. While using the software at LetMeBank, you can do everything from task creation and delegation to project monitoring and management. There's the option to create reports and charts while tracking deadlines for different tasks. It's a wonderful tool for managing people and projects. It isn't a free service, but if you can afford it, Wrike is well worth it.

I think clear coding is much more important than efficient coding. Long ago, the development arena was much more inclined towards making the code more efficient. The focus remained majorly on how much functionality can be packed into a single kilobyte of storage, how much RAM it uses, how tightly it complies, what extent of communication would be sent in every network packet, and so on. Those days, computers even fail to have random access to persistent storage and one program at a time could run. RAM was also measured in bytes than gigabytes. However, the time has changed now. Proficient programmers never ignore the efficiency of writing good code. But, now they also pay attention to the cleanness of the code. This mostly boils down to readability and comprehensibility that helps you in reusing the code. You will be required to reinvent the wheel many times. It would also be perfectly well if you decide to write the code from scratch than using whatever you have already written. Problems are similar whether you are working in an open-source or closed source environment. But when you know your own code, bugs can be easily fixed, and features can be easily added. When the code is clear, you will have a better idea of the sort of using certain functionality. This actually eliminates the need for rewrites. As long as your code meets the basic requirements for the efficiency needed to meet your requirements for the immediate future, clarity wins the race to efficiency. Even the coding experts suggest forgetting about the small efficiencies. Stop going to the premature optimization that reduces clarity in coding.
