VivifyScrum Software


 

VivifyScrum is a cloud-based project management tool that features boards for managing Scrum and Kanban project management techniques. It is suitable for small to midsize businesses in a wide range of industries.

Users can choose between Scrum and Kanban boards. The Scrum board offers Product Backlog, Sprint and Burndown charts. The Kanban board is a one-page board with manageable lists of items. All boards can be viewed from a centralized dashboard, exported for future access and viewed on their mobile device through a dedicated VivifyScrum iOS app. 

VivifyScrum lets users manage teams and assign a range of privileges to individual team members. Items in product backlogs can be organized by team members into Sprints. Sprint backlogs can then be managed based on designated goals and priorities. The platform’s reporting module allows users to generate Burndown and Velocity charts.

VivifyScrum can be purchased on a per owned board and team member subscription basis. Users can receive in-app chat support or reach out for support around the clock by email. Text and video tutorials are also available on the VivifyScrum blog and YouTube channel.

Continue like that and impress me.

Pros

I like the simplicity of this application, it's really easy to use and we can work with a team with efficacity.

Cons

The user rights are not precise enough. They are sufficient for developers teams but not really enough for big companies.

Graphical representation of the work been done and to do
Maintain well and current informed all the members of the team
References to formal requirements, development and implementation documents

Pros

Simple interface that allows to capture enough information without over saturating the screen for a clean understanding of the task

Cons

Seems slow when updating/refreshing screens
Moving cards up and down is a bit tedious, moves to fast so ordering items by priority is a bit hard
A bit confusing when different windows open clicking on the different card elements like card title or on the card code

Keeping track of todo items

Pros

Free to start using, reasonable limits on free functionality. Has most of the features we need, comments, checklists, scrum boards, sprint management, etc. Visually attractive UI.

Cons

Mobile functionality and UI is very poor. UI of the desktop site is clunky to use despite being visually attractive. Navigation is not user-friendly, some elements are auto-saving others are not, creating an inconsistent user experience. Email notifications or browser notifications link you to a confusing page from which you can't actually access the details of the item you were notified about nor can you see what was changed.

The fact that the application is quite smooth and light for a tool like that. It does what you want efficiently.

I think we need to add more feature. For example we can add the story point total for the sprint and when we reach this limit, the application notice us.

An agile board at a reasonable price

Pros

The agile board with ticket types, points and sprint management. This is the main feature I was searching for

Cons

The search field is overall unusable and does not work as expected. This is a big problem in long lasting projects where history is a valuable thing

I am now more organized than ever.

Pros

Project simplification, followup and ease of execution. From day one, it helps you itemized your work, follow it up, monitor progress and measure performance.

Cons

Interface looks archaic. I wanted something that looks more dynamic and aesthetic like "slack" interface. Borrow a leaf from the way google designs their products

Extremely easy to use and very powerful in helping to organize and administer a software development project.

Pros

I use the software daily to weekly. The software is very user friendly and laid out in a logical fashion. Their free version is very generous and provides a great look at the software's capabilities for an unlimited time (based upon how many cards you add). The concise and full card view is very useful for fitting as many cards on a screen as possible.

Cons

I would like to be able to filter out items marked Done from displaying in a sprint. I sent this as a request and received a quick response. I suspect that this feature will be in the new release in September. I would like checkmarks that indicate Done items to always appear in the same place on a card and to be a different color than green so that they stand out a bit more.

Overview of tasks, spend hours and due date

Pros

Easy to use,
Looks and feels good,
Good overview when in multiple projects
Good overview in sprints
Sprints are easy to define.
Planning Poker

Cons

Not all Scrum items are implemented.
Like hours to go is a bit vague.
Still a few bugs in the software, like in the planning poker.
User picture can't be magnified.
Unfinished stories won't be put into the next sprint when the sprint is finished.

We are an Educational Technology department that uses the software for our personal and group projects. It is great to keep track of our multiple tasks, but we also realize it is not being used to its fullest potential.

Pros

Fairly easy to use

Cons

Not really using its full functionality, as we are not specifically the target audience for the product.

I have been using Vivify Scrum to teach Scrum to students (I am a professional scrum trainer).

It is easy to start with, very visual and simple. With Vivify Scrum you can emulate the physical information radiators on the wall with an IT system that does not force you to enter a lot of information so the experience is still agile.

Pros

Easy to use
Elegant and nice UI

Cons

Not very flexible
Not easy to integrate with other ALM tools (it is not a defect but the philosophy of the tool)

we moved from another product to vivify to help us with some things. We have a bunch of items and task cards in our old system that seem to bog down the old system. now it seem to be bogging down vivify also.

Pros

nice looking easy use, seems to have a bunch of good dtat ans reports

Cons

slow for ous system, not an easy way to move parent and child cards all at one time

Advice to Others

why not use the scrum system to get out faster deplyments

After trying out many different scrum tools at work, this is the only one that all the engineers could get behind. It is easy to use, clean, and has all the necessary features. There are a few bells and whistles that you might get somewhere else, but they come with enough annoyances that we all prefer this one.

Pros

It is clean, simple and intuitive

Cons

I wish I could duplicate whole boards or set defaults for when an item is first created.

We used Vivify for about two years now. Our developers love it because it's a very easy and intuitive way to work with Scrum. We can also give login-details to our clients because it's very user friendly.

We've been using VivifyScrum in conjunction with GitLab for our development team and business team to be on the same page. It is lacking in full integration with GitLab, but hopefully, they can build out more webhooks or API connections shortly. We have always been greeted with responsive support, and even had a recommended functionality fix taken care of in a short period of time which was great! If there was time tracking built in that would be awesome. Overall, it's a good tool for some use cases, but I hope they keep developing it.

Pros

Simple to use and not expensive. Has some integration with GitLab.

Cons

Only partial integration with GitLab, could have more webhooks set up.

My small team of 6 switched to VivifyScrum from Trello. There are several similarities however, the additional features are really great for our team. Burndown charts and stats as well as making it simple to track our velocity. The filters are great. I'm hopeful for the mobile app. Everything we need and nothing we don't.

Pros

Filters; the ability to easily track size, priority task type as well as labels; simplicity.

Cons

It feels a little slower to make child tasks (than Trello) but the values are cumulative on the parent so that's nice. Still needs a mobile app.

Advice to Others

It's a great price point and easy to use.

We have been using Vivify for quite a while and we just love it. Really helps to have a feel of what is going on with the team works. I really like how easy we can attach files to tasks and the interface to Slack.

Pros

The ease of use, the nice interface.

Cons

Have more theme selection

Need a simple project management software solution, that is different from MS Project and the likes? You can't go wrong with Vivify.
