Could be better

Pros

I like the Epic Kanban board and the ability to edit it.

Cons

The easy of use could be much better. Cumbersome for a product manager to brainstorm and build long term roadmaps.

Agile done right

It is helping my organization in implementing Agile. It is a boon for scrum masters.

Pros

The best feature is ability to add custom fields. It lets you customize the filters as per your need. I also like the fact that it has a clean interface coupled with all features of agile such as sprint planning, scheduling. backlogand project planning. It is one of the best software suited for agile.

Cons

It is slow. Takes forever to load the backlog if it is huge.

We use VersionOne to manage developer tasking and customer requirements

Excellent time and issue tracking. It allows us to easily get a quick overview of what everyone on the team is working on.

Pros

VersionOne's user interface is clean, easy to use, and powerful. It's responsive an allows me to see what my team's working on at a glance. I like how easily VersionOne integrates with our agile workflow.

Cons

Price is a factor. There are cheaper solutions out there especially for smaller teams. Some features can be a little confusing to use properly without prior training such as splitting issues between sprints.

The tool is fine for a small project

Managing the issues related to the development of a new software

Pros

The tool is fine for a small project and the dashboard is easy to follow once is created, also adding comments to the tickets is easy, and filtering is a very useful feature.

Cons

The interface is not very intuitive, the online edition is not quite comfortable and for big projects things can get messy really quickly.

it is a good application to work scrum however it is not very intuitive

Pros

the application is good and complete, it has nice colors for the user experience however it needs improvements in the notifications behind the tickets' stories on the board

Cons

I would like to improve the option of notifications despite being the owner of a ticket every time a question is asked or a ticket is moved it is not possible to receive notifications

Great reporting for execs, horribly inefficient for everyone else

This tool has provided nothing but headaches on a daily basis.

Pros

There are definitely a lot of features (for better or for worse) and reporting is pretty comprehensive if you can figure out how to use it.

Cons

Pretty much everything else. Super clunky UI that is an eyesore to look at. It takes far too many clicks to do everything. Finding items is always a chore. The testing portion of the tool feels like an afterthought. Even working with the APIs requires too much effort. Honestly the whole tool feels like it was designed for waterfall, then later had agile features bolted on.

I'd rather use a physical task board, but I can make this work with some tinkering

Distributed task boards for distributed teams. Integration to some degree with other platforms such as ALM and ServiceNow.

Pros

It has a bunch of features and can integrate with other tools and platforms. For teams that are split up geographically, something like this is probably the best option.

Cons

It's really cumbersome and slow, and the features are not always what you want or where you expect them.

A very robust work tracking tool for software development, but also overly complicated at times.

Pros

Excellent reporting tools for upper management. Can get very nice graphs showing burndown, get a detailed view of status of sprints and progress of work planned.

Cons

Unfortunetly, filling out work done on a day to day basis is time consuming and clunkly, and planning takes a long time because of the lag associated with an online service. At times after clicking on something to update, one is faced with a several second wait in order to start typing, and then the same to confirm and save the transaction. In such it makes it difficult to actually get engineers to use it consistently. A tool like this is only useful if used consistently. Unfortunetly, the complexity of it makes it more of a chore to work with and often the tool fails simply because people on our team don't want to use it.

It is a good task tracker with a ton of features that can come on handy

Pros

It has a kanban board that is really handy tracking stories.
Every story or task has a lot of fields that can help you with extra information regarding the task.
It handles comunication with the whole teram through the Team Menu.

Cons

Not a con per se, but so many fields in the story, and the position they are visually organized, could make the user feels overwhelmed.

Very good tool for task management

A good management for task and assignations in the project as a developer.

Pros

- Allow task documentation for several topics (links, tests, use cases, extended description, Attachments, Commits).
- Can handle several teams and projects.
- Allow planning, teams and own rooms.

Cons

- Not integration with Gitlab neither with confluence.
- The interface and the UX could be improved.

Ex-PM with experience in variety of PM software, but only recently with Version One

Pros

Really fresh, modern feel/UI to this application - all areas feel well polished. Also has a great feature set to go along with the UI.

Cons

Relies heavily on user interaction, like one would expect, however would be great to add some kind of notification system to notify users when their items have sat idle for certain amount of time.

This software is a good options for agile environment on a projects

This software is a good option, agile environment is the best way to planning project.

Pros

This software is nice that it is a cloud service so you can access it from work or remotely whenever needed.

Cons

I think that the fonts and formatting isn't good when writing in tasks,especially when using numbered entries, bullets, or copying and pasting.

We use this to track projects and the progress of those projects

VersionOne allows me to help track and plan work for multiple teams across my foundation. it keeps moat of my day to day information with my high level project overview information in a single platform.

Pros

VersionOne allows us to track an idea all the to completion. We use it to break projects into Epics, the stories, and then into workable tasks for our development team. Two of our teams work within sprint boundries, whikle another team uses the KanBan features. I can see the progress of either team at any given time.

Cons

The Epic or Portfolio portion of VersionOne seem to be an after thought. Not all subscriptions use them, so they are not consistently used within reporting and other functionality. We use the Epic portion to track big pieces of functionality, but have to tie them to overall projects out of the software. The tool bar is not available in all screens, so navigation can be tricky if you do not know the quirks of VersionOne.

Agile Project management - Tick!

Pros

It is one of the best project management softwares I have used. It gives you a good tracking mechanism of how many days are required, you can reduce the number of hours and see the velocity of the work progress.

Cons

It is constantly being modified, it is a good thing (and a lot of change is bad as well). I had made a suggestion on a feature, I never got my ticket answered though.

Works well

Pros

Team rooms are great for planning and tracking. Makes it easy to keep track of stories, defect, and epics.

Cons

It seems like the site changes every time you login. Although the constant improvement is appreciated, it can be frustrating when things move around frequently.

Secure info, needs improvements

Pros

We purchased this because it was more secure than the software we used previously. It was important for us to protect the projects we were working on.

Cons

Our developers created several Google Chrome plugins to enhance the features of Version One. We needed a way to sort and color code our branded projects. We needed a way to show how old a card was getting. We needed a way to add a deadline for a card. Etc, etc.

Not wowed

Pros

Software did it's intended purpose. It helped track our Agile stories in an organization where Agile is 2 years into implementation.

A very good software, with the best in market features.

This is the premium software when it comes to project management - esp Agile. It has the best features such as creating stories, sub-stories - ease of splitting a story into two sub- stories was superb. Also the features such as tracking the story progress with all the test-cases, design etc being attached under/to the story was very useful feature. Tracking the burn-down charts and velocity very helpful especially in the sprint review meetings. Only down-side was the pricing. The top(fortune 500) companies could easily afford this - especially who had: 1) the infrastructure to host the system, 2) Users scattered all over the globe 3) A strong local network with robust firewalls. 4) A strong urge to be secure (eg the pharma or financial institutions) But when it comes to tier- II companies, who are looking to save costs at every opportunity, maybe not prefer this...might consider JIRA Agile or others.

Pros

1. Best in class features - a comprehensive bouquet of all the necessary features.
2. Good UI and even better usability.

Cons

Only one that is pricing.
