A Powerful, Flexible, Simple Solution

5 11 months ago

Comments: Overall experience: Very positive. Easy to use. Intuitive. Just log in and go. That's my kind of solution.

Pros:

Hugo's strongest features derive from its flexibility (easily incorporate 3rd party software) and its ease of use (readily invite, update, and loop in anyone on your team). Meanwhile, it is easy enough to use that one can set up a meeting, prepare an agenda, invite participants, take notes, and share follow up tasks , all on the fly. The best solutions are powerful but simple.

Cons:

I have no serious complaints, but there are little things. For instance, Hugo does not appear to grey out past events, or to let the user select, then move, meetings around. Nor does it appear one can copy recurring events. Maybe the capability is there, but I haven't found it. It would also make sense to download contents from a meeting. Again, this may be possible, but I have yet to see it. But these are bug-fixes at best. Overall, the product is quantum leap over the alternatives.

Hugo - My New Default for Managing Meetings & Taking Notes

5 6 months ago

Comments: Absolutely terrific. It has become the #2 tab in my browser after my inbox. High quality, seamless to use, highly organized.

Pros:

My Meetings dashboard page. The Prepare section/widget on that page. Using templates. Tasks in a meeting doc.

Cons:

Searching for notes - I feel that there are too many options and the experience is a bit subpar. I'd rather get the raw results with maybe my authored documents prioritized at the top, then have the ability to filter on "company" or "contacts" or otherwise.

While the idea is great, it's not practical

3 5 months ago

Pros:

I like that it forces focus time and blocks out those times on the calendar.

Cons:

I've had situations where meeting invites were being scheduled for a date that was further out than needed because of the blocks of time that it automatically puts on my calendar.

HUGO solves Project Management Pain Points

5 2 months ago

Comments: I found HUGO searching for a software that was like Front with greater PM functionality. I signed up for the free trial of HUGO and Drag. I taught myself the software, implemented it into my daily work within an hour (which includes creating templates and forms) and was in love with this software day 1. I have shown it to my team, utilized it in current client meetings and pitched it to my boss for full implementation.

Pros:

HUGO puts all the administrative pieces of project management into one space and integrates with all our company's applications that we use. HUGO saves me hours each week by streamlining the weekly grind of managing a project.

Cons:

If I have to list a con, it would be that I have wasted too much time trying to find a con. Everything that I need to run my meetings is handled in HUGO. Would be nice if I could allow users to select a time block to request a meeting on my calendar.

Just what I needed...

5 11 months ago

Comments: The easy of collaborative meeting prep, use during the meeting, and locating the information after the meeting has been a life saver for our little team.

Pros:

The ability to takes notes in a meeting where the information is tied to the calendar event is just what I was searching for when I discovered Hugo.

Cons:

Since Hugo is tied to my Google calendar, it would be great if the todo's we can generate in the meetings could be linked back to Google tasks without needing a third party app like todoist, etc.
