The only solution for teams that depend on GitHub

We started using it in our dev teams (most of the company), but it worked so well, that we extended its use to Marketing, Finance and HR. We even created empty repos in GitHub, so that those teams can have their own boards. The cost is reasonable and we ended up with a powerful collaboration tool on shared artifacts (GitHub) and a basic, but sufficient task/project management tool (ZenHub). We even cancelled our Aha! Subscription, because we had simple product needs and the Roadmap feature, in combination with epics was enough for us.

Pros

Ingenious way to bypass the issue of GitHub's poor API and data model, that makes it practically impossible for any integration to offer true value, with minimal overhead. It has just enough features to make our life easy, with minimal overhead.

Cons

Sometimes (rarely) updates may get lost, when done via ZenHub. You do need to open the GitHub project occasionally, as you don't have exactly the same ability to modify issues and milestones from within ZenHub.

Reasons for choosing ZenHub

None of them solved much at all, for a company that relies so much on GitHub. With ZenHub we don't have to worry about issue duplication, manual overhead, issues with bidirectional synchronization, integrations only with PRs, looking for the source of truth and many more issues I identified during the evaluation/selection process.

Nice connection to github

We use ZenHub to represent our backlog and workflow. It has epics and individual issues on the board.

Pros

It has the same product management column set up that most PM tools have. One advantage I've seen over other PM softwares is that you can put epics in other epics. This allows you to put multiple epics into one epic to represent a bigger piece of work.

Cons

I don't like that it's limited to kanban. You can't have different boards for teams within your repo (or I haven't figured out how) so you're all working off the same board. There aren't specific boards for sprints so you could set up columns to represent your sprint but it's not as easy as something like Jira.

Reasons for switching to ZenHub

I made the switch because I switched companies.

Response from ZenHub

Hello, Thank you for the kind words and feedback on ZenHub. You mentioned having a hard time setting up multiple board views on the same GitHub Repo and wanted to help. We recently launched ZenHub Workspaces which gives different teams the ability to customize their board view when working from the same set of GitHub Repositories. Here's how to set up your first Workspace: https://help.zenhub.com/support/solutions/articles/43000497224-creating-your-first-workspace If you run into any trouble please feel free to reach out to support or myself at any time (support@zenhub.com). Thank you for being a ZenHub customer!

Very simple but wouldn't use it

nice for simple projects if you don't want to use any other software since GH already comes as a repo but overall I wouldn't use it for serious projects

Pros

- integration with Github very very closely - simple

Cons

- slow - lack of features - bugs - no command+f search

Reasons for switching to ZenHub

it was used in the company, not my decision

Powerful project management and status tracking for development and product teams

Overall, I'd highly recommend Zenhub to any development or product team as a powerful project management system that will add just what Github lacks in that regard on its own.

Pros

The kanban board is an invaluable view into what our development team is doing. Tracking the status in this way is really helpful as it helps me know when to chime into the process (i.e. during the estimation phase or QA phase). As a product designer, I can keep track of where Github issues are at, easily chime in with feedback during the quality assurance process and provide answers to design-related questions for the development team. My favorite feature is the integration with Github. This adds a layer on top of Github that is extremely helpful for project management and estimation

Cons

I really have nothing bad to say about it. It meets our project management needs.

Supercharge GitHub!

Pros

I love how this software takes an existing feature (i.e. GitHub issue) and literally supercharges it, giving it new scope and meaning. It lets you organize work in a fast, reliable and effective way with teams of any sizes. I’ve been using it with a small team of web developers and it really changed for the better the way we plan our sprints and how well we communicate progress to other stakeholders.

Cons

The learning curve might seem a bit steep, you need to become familiar with how GitHub features like issues and labels map to concepts like milestones and epics, but once you get the gist of it you are going to love this software.
