A User of ezFlow for Google Docs™
June 30, 2018
Opening up the add-on immediately confronted me with terms I did not understand about new revisions and new workflow. So I went looking for help. I went back to Google Docs menu for Add-ons and moused-over ezFlow, it listed a “Help” option, but the only help options it offered were reporting bugs and seeing the add-on in the store.
Few of the symbols on the sidebar have mouseovers, so I just started clicking around.
I eventually discovered how to use some features from both ends by adding a different personal email of mine as another reviewer.
Once I had completed a workflow with myself, I tried creating another and hit the same wall of confusion and lack of support. I’m sure I could figure it out, but trial and error are time consuming.
Additionally, It would take some training and practice with people who would use this with me, and most of them are not very good about following through on clicks with this kind of stuff. I think throwing one more click machine at them would cause confusion. For my purposes, I think using plain email, Google Doc comments/assignments, or Asana work well enough.
Conclusion: Not intuitive. Not supported with help feature. I’m not likely to use this.
