Reviews of Element
Secure collaboration for every team
Multi-platform very convenient and secure messenger. Works great for our business needs.
Works great, no limitations, reliable and non-expensive solution.
Element bridges our org's internal communication tools
Element provides our organization with an open source and user-friendly enterprise SaaS solution to bridge our internal communication tools. Additionally, it provides us with a platform for true end-to-end encrypted conversations.
Logging in to our SaaS instance through the desktop isn't super intuitive, as it requires the end user to manually input our server hostname.
Great for Remote Work
I've used Element now for a while and feel like the screen share and mobile upload features are as slick as they get.
I think they could improve on the initial set-up and onboarding, but once you're on. Very smooth.
In our Element
Comments: Overall experience is positive. The UX of the app is clean and intuitive, which enables the teams to collaborate well.
Element provides our agency with the ability to maintain a truly secure, decentralised communications platform - a vital requirement for the often confidential nature of our work. Element is easy to deploy and use, was up and running in minutes and switching between its desktop application and mobile is seamless.
None so far!
It is a very cool messenger and collaboration platform for small or big sized businesses. We use it for communication, managing, and just as a company or team group.
No problems or cons. I really like that software.
