    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    - 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.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    VersionOne is one of the finest agile tool. It helps team be more agile and show the details of time spent vs time remaining to help plan and execute in a sprint

    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.
