    The user interface is very good. It is more intuitive in nature. It is easy to use and robust in operation. The dashboard is designed on modernized UI and the interface is also intuitive. I can easily navigate things on my own.

    Planview LeanKit

    Planview LeanKit excels in any scenario where you need to visualize and organize work to be done. You can feasible even use it as a personal to-do application. We use it as a way to keep track of our current topics in management meetings as well as a Scrumban implementation of project management.However, when processes and work is very file- and data-heavy, using Planview LeanKit is less appropriate as there's just not way of doing a sensible file management.

    Pros

    Backlog

    • Gantt chart
    • Github support
    Sanyam Jain | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Planview LeanKit

    • Ability to color code cards based on type, giving better visibility to the variety of tasks a team handles
    • Ability to set deadline dates and have those dates easily visible
    • Flexibility in design the kanban board. It is easy to add a lane or make a change on the fly. Work doesn't have to stop and a long process created to make simple layout changes.
    • Movement of cards is easy as well as the ability to connect cards to show dependencies.

    Cons

    Backlog

    • The biggest drawback that I want Backlog to fix as soon as possible is that is does not provide any place to explain the problem or bug virtually.
    • There is a need for a tab or space to attach screenshot or video to easily explain the bug or problem in the project.
    Carol Aleman | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Planview LeanKit

    • The formatting of what they call "cards" could be better. They can be clunky if you have a lot of text in just one.
    • Needs better support for media, attachments.
    • Not the most pretty interface in my opinion, though it works.

    LeanKit isn't the best designed Kanban system I've seen, but overall it's pretty usable. The boards I've used are pretty complex, so it can be difficult to find things. I found that searching and filtering for specific cards was somewhat of a challenge. Dragging a card from one lane to another is kind of a fun way to get things done though.

    Alternatives Considered

    Backlog

    Backlog has all of the top-notch features to increase productivity, visibility, and project tracking. Backlog is easy to use. I first just logged in to the platform and it was [ready] to go. I easily started working on it and it started giving me the bugs’ details on our project. Always available for queries. Listen to the queries very attentively and try to give a solution on the go if applicable. Otherwise, take some time and respond with the advanced workable solution in the limited time frame.

    Planview LeanKit

    I think that LeanKit is very similar to Asana's Kanban feature and Trello, but is much less sleek looking than Asana. Asana's clean and sleek UI makes me enjoy project management much more than LeanKit. It might sound silly that the UI makes so much of a difference to me, but it really does. Trello is also sleeker than LeanKit, but I still prefer Asana because it has more customization options and a better interface. We are actually going to look into switching to ClickUp because we wanted something with a better UI. ClickUp seems to have a great UI with a lot of customization options.

    Planview LeanKit

    • Our team meetings are more direct and quick to get through thanks to the better visibility of the workload
    • Easily being able to move cards between team lanes gives instant visibility to where the responsibility for the next step is needed.
