Differences

  • ClickUp can be a bit mind-boggling for first-time users, while monday.com is very easy to use. One of monday.com’s focuses is user adaptation and everything of it is straightforward to use and more likely has plenty of guidance for beginners. The easier a certain project management tool can be used, the more tasks can be done.
  • There is a complete Freemium plan offer for ClickUp while monday.com has no free plan offer – Most users tend to choose ClickUp because of the free forever plan.

Missing pieces of ClickUp that monday.com have

  • Dashboard widgets don’t refresh automatically, but they can be set to refresh regularly. Also, they have fewer types of widgets than monday.com can offer.
  • Native ClickUp integrations are far less extensive – they’re missing Salesforce and Jira, to name a few. Also, they can’t be configured as recipes like automation which makes it harder to automate tasks across platforms. Many of them are not two-way and must use a 3rd party.
  • monday workdocs are richer than ClickUp’s. It features live-updating widgets and a real-time engine that allows people to work without it being altered accidentally
  • Some security measures are missing like ISO, SOC 1 & 3, and more which are very important.

Strengths of ClickUp compared to monday.com

  • Workspace/folder level visibility allows a user to look at the contents of multiple boards within a workspace or a folder. (i.e.. if you click on a folder, you can see all items within all boards that are within the folder.)
  • Similar support structure
  • Role-based Permissions – One of the very few competitors that have this ability. (We have this too, but it’s so rare that a competitor does as well, it’s worth mentioning)
  • 1 Item in More Than 1 Board – ClickUp UI and UX may be more favorable than our Mirror/link to item column, though it has less functionality.
  • No Guest User Domain Block – ClickUp allows its clients to purchase a small number of seats, and have a large amount of their company come on as guests, with no apparent limitations. (Note: This may not be their official policy.)

We would easily recommend monday.com as it has the quickest adaption rate among users. It won’t take so much grasp and energy. If you want a more future-oriented digital set-up with your business or already have projections for your business in scaling it, then the choice would be monday.com.
