From niche digital tools, Project management services have now become indispensable in streamlining processes and improving productivity. Monday.com and Clickup are among the leading choices in project management and workflow management services. Take a look at how they compare against each other.


Monday.com is fast becoming one of the more popular project management services. That’s a testimony to the tool’s robust yet easy-to-use design and also the myriad features it brings you. But more than anything else, perhaps it’s the flexibility it affords that makes it a valuable partner in your project management journey.

For example, let’s look at the idea of ‘pulses’ in Minday.com. Pulses could be many things, depending to the need of the project. Many project management tools only allow you to create tasks or projects. In this context, you can see how expansive Monday.com’s approach to project management is with the idea of pulses.

Creating a pulse is simple, possible with just a few clicks. Related features include assigning team members to a pulse and setting the deadline for it. While setting up tasks/pulses, it’s easy to mess up the order- especially true with very complex projects. To avoid this, Monday.com allows you to set dependency for a pulse. If Pulse A can only be finished completely after finishing Pulse B, you will get to know it simply by viewing the Monday.com interface. Also, it’s extremely easy to view the current status of a pulse once it is in progress.


Clickup shares some level of similarity with Monday.com in terms of the visual aspects. For instance, both workflow management tools have their main menu bar to the left of the screen. In Clickup, tabs for both the Homepage and Notifications are on the menu.

As for views, you get the list-view and board-view among others. You can toggle between views by hitting on the relevant tab. Clicking on List-view would show you the tasks in a list format- with the ‘Assignee’ option appearing beside it. As its name suggests, you can use this button to assign someone a task.

Like with Monday.com, you can also set the date the task is due on. Also, you can set the task priority in cases where precedence is important. Other useful features include one for assigning budget to a task. And Clickup is sophisticated enough to show what’s left of the budget to be spent yet, at any point in the project lifecycle.

In task view, the list of tasks is divided into three- falling under Ready, In Progress and Complete categories. Tasks that are yet to be launched, and for which you haven’t assigned anyone come in the first category. The second include those tasks that have been started but are yet to be finished. The finished tasks come under the Complete section. Tasks are also displayed according to the phases of a project.


Both Monday.com and Clickup come in free and paid plans. Free plans are meant for individuals or small teams while the paid plans can be used by mid-level to big organizations, depending on the plan you pick.

But the free plans for both services do offer a good many features to facilitate project management- unless the projects are too complex. The biggest caveat is the number of users the free plan supports. For instance, with Monday.com, the free plan is meant exclusively for individuals while in Clickup, up to five users can make use of the tool.

Which one to choose- Clickup or Monday.com?

If you are planning to get the free plan, Clickup is the way to go. The features you get for free are comparable in both workflow management tools. But Clickup supports up to five users for free while Monday.com can be used by only a single user.

Other than that, the validity of choosing one over the other would largely depend on your individual requirements. There are certain features in Clickup which are conducive to managing complex problems, that may not be available in Monday.com. In such cases, it’s better to opt for Clickup. And do check out their pricing before choosing either of them. For Enterprise plans- meant for huge businesses- you would have to contact the sales teams. The price and features for the all other plans can be found on the respective websites.

However, a pivotal measure these two project management tools lack is the ability to accurately predict the time one takes to finish a task. While some variant of the same may be available, the measurement is never as precise as it should be- like for instance, it doesn’t discount the time someone spends on breaks during a task.

 I’m Productive is a project management tool that helps you achieve such accurate assessments. This in turn lets you predict the project delivery time without error. The tool helps you do this with the aid of a powerful AI. But that’s just one way in which I’m Productive becomes a reliable project management service. To know more, please visit their website.
