"Great Headless CMS used by the Swiss Red Cross"
What do you like best about Contentful?

Contentful is an extremely stable, secure and user-friendly system with high availability and speed. As an NPO, we can benefit from an extremely generous NPO price plan.

What do you dislike about Contentful?

It's a pity we can't benefit from all the new features because the NPO pricing model has been adjusted. We'd be very happy to pay part of the cost, but we can't keep up with the "large space" model.

What problems is Contentful solving and how is that benefiting you?

Thanks to Contentful, we have converted to a Headless CMS infrastructure and benefit from the very well structured input masks for our editors.

"Great product"
What do you like best about Contentful?

Contentful deals number of valuable functions and also it's extremely wise and also easy to make use of. The truth you could produce your very own information framework as well as information partnerships is so valuable as well as allows full versatility within jobs. They supply a relatively practical cost-free usage limitation and also you could slowly broaden even more with tiny month-to-month charges.

What do you dislike about Contentful?

Picture uploading could be uncomfortable as well as needs it to be done individually by hand. Web page might be better. It is far better for brand-new tasks compared to for tradition ones.There might be another action in rates for little tasks like the one I typically handle.

What problems is Contentful solving and how is that benefiting you?

Handling internet site information, internet material and also keeping record declare releasing online. Allows me to make use of the item throughout numerous systems.

"Sleek to use and really flexible to configure"
What do you like best about Contentful?

The flexibility of configuration, one can say there is real freedom of shape around your data. O also like their pay-as-you-expand mechanics. They give a pretty reasonable free usage limit and you can gradually expand beyond that with small monthly fees. If not for that - we'd probably won't buy the typical tiers. In the sense that we manage sites content and application content there. If it was not for the flexible pricing for sure, we might end up writing custom code and database for the storage. But here the value/price is balanced.

What do you dislike about Contentful?

Search and slicing the significant number of content pieces is pretty nasty, but they are continually tackling and improving that stuff.

What problems is Contentful solving and how is that benefiting you?

We manage three websites data and some parts of our application content there. We were able to provide Marketing team with the easy interface to maintain and build the site. At the same time, we were able to keep design consistency because they can add only the content.

"Great flexibility and value, odd at first"
What do you like best about Contentful?

Model creation with the available wide variety of field types is great. The basic Markdown text field editor covers lots of use cases. Resizing images by just adding optional query parameters to the URL is magic. The content model is very flexible.

What do you dislike about Contentful?

The Contentful content model is flexible, I'd even say too flexible for a simple paged website. It takes a while to grasp the Contentful-way of thinking about content. Not being able to categorize Models hurts in discoverability and creates a mess that can only be salvaged by namespacing them (e.g. "Page - Home ", "Page - About ") and then filtering ("Save as view" helps a lot here). It doesn't seem as easy to edit for laypeople as say WordPress, but I can't back that up. Multilanguage editing view could be improved I feel, displaying all languages at once can be overwhelming.

What problems is Contentful solving and how is that benefiting you?

Built a non-profit flyer-type website.

"Extensive usage with lots of dynamic changes and flexibilities showed the stability of the system"
What do you like best about Contentful?

Clean architectural approach, fast API, image optimization, new pricing and great support. Great to see how the system evolves and improves. More apps are incoming to the market. Very easy to extend and add additional functionality if necessary. Cross-spaces - great thing to have.

What do you dislike about Contentful?

Some limitations for UI changes, Many potential improvements to fields management are not there yet and rely on extensions, like conditional fields etc. Content types usage limitation - much better with new prices

What problems is Contentful solving and how is that benefiting you?

Managing Content team with roles & permission, managing markets/locales. Providing clean and stable forms for managers to work with. It also allow us to limit them from changes to the front end. Great image optimisation and much better workflows comparing to previous CMS experience.

"Good for individual projects, not good for team or enterprise"
What do you like best about Contentful?

It was good to have a free version. We benefited massively from going SaaS and headless - having struggled with the overheads of Episerver (Optimizely DXP) that was very expensive to upgrade and maintain etc. due the PaaS hosting.

What do you dislike about Contentful?

Very clunky. Almost zero support. And lacks the basic collaboration features that I expected. Pricing model is complex to the point that the reason we chose Contentful (Cheap and Easy) was no longer valid - as Contentful prices escalates quickly for multiple spaces (prod, uat) and usage. We actually moved to a more enterprise and transparent offering with Contentstack.

What problems is Contentful solving and how is that benefiting you?

Multi-channel content orchestration. The output of moving to a headless CMS from Episerver (Optimizely DXP) has been massive. No upgrades and lower overheads, with faster roll-out of content and campaigns.

"Clunky and complicated"
What do you like best about Contentful?

The level of customization -- like being able to add helpful hints to tell people what kind of data goes in each field.

What do you dislike about Contentful?

Using Contentful requires a different mindset and it takes some time to understand how all the pieces fit together. It's possible that some of my frustration comes from my company's instance of it -- I haven't used it in any other jobs. Many tasks feel like they should take way less effort, it's hard to get things to look nice, and it's easy to accidentally make errors. It feels like way too much clicking to achieve simple tasks. I find search less helpful than I'd like.

What problems is Contentful solving and how is that benefiting you?

Being able to update the website, add new pages, and edit pages.

"Contentful worked wonders for our static nonprofit site, Hack4Impact.org!"
What do you like best about Contentful?

Above all, the GraphQL API made it super easy to add the *exact* content we want to every area of our site. We just needed to inspect our Content Models, build a query in Contentful's own playground, and copy / paste into the codebase. We were also very impressed with the user experience. We were able to onboard designers and operation directors in 30 minutes, and they felt confident enough to write new content without coming to the devs. The "Draft" / "Published" states were easy to understand, and the rich text fields were super friendly for complex fields. Couldn't be happier overall!

What do you dislike about Contentful?

Our only "ask" would be template strings for passing values into our text entries. For example, being able to pass a "name" parameter to Contentful, and then using that name throughout a given content model (i.e. This is {name}'s profile picture).

What problems is Contentful solving and how is that benefiting you?

Basically, we needed a place to store information about our university chapters, board members, and all future content in a single place. In doing so, our content needed to be: a) Super flexible as we add fields, text, flags, and other values b) Easily edit-able, so designers and product managers could update content with confidence (and without the developer tickets) In the end, Contentful delivers all of this and more!
